The purchase of a sofa for your home or office space seems simple enough. After all, what is a sofa but a piece of furniture that allows more than one person to sit on it at one time? Almost every home has one, and they are useful for sitting, slouching, sleeping and all actions in between. But don’t let the simplicity of sofa or couch design trick you into thinking your purchase should be made hastily. The questions you should consider before purchasing a sofa are these: Where, How and How Long?
Where Do You Live?
If you anticipate many moves in your future, an easy to transport couch design serves well. Whether you have lots of space or little, a quality sofa establishes a key element in any space. It can easily be surrounded with complementary items that fit the size of the room. So a design that works with many different situations is best.
If you are settled and see yourself in your dream home for quite a while, purchase the ideal couch for that space. This sofa should be selected to specifically match your home’s architecture, style, and size. It should be as if the sofa was made for just for that space and the space seems made for the sofa.
How Will You Use a Sofa?
Clearly, a couch or sofa is for sitting on, but each person and family interprets what that means differently. Some families put their furniture through a lot – pet hair, pillow fights, spilled juice boxes, buttery popcorn movie nights – many couches get all this abuse and more. A couch that sees heavy use needs easy cleaning and a durable surface. If a sofa is more of a design piece for a room reserved for special occasions, then the style and quality should dominate your decision-making. And if the primary factor is comfort, for entertainment and rest, the internal materials become more important to ensure your couch is perfect for lounging over a long period of time.
How Long Will You Keep Your Couch?
A couch is typically a major focal point of a family or living room, den, office or reception area. It is a major purchase, and if chosen well, outlasts trends in paint colors and accessories. Even if you want a versatile piece that will see you through many upcoming moves, or don’t plan to be in a home long, Urban 57 can help you make the right choice for this important piece in your interior design.
