Dalton, Georgia based Furniture of Dalton has recently published a comprehensive buyer’s guide in choosing the right sofa in terms of style, comfort, fabric, size and function.
“There is absolutely not a one size fits all couch because they are purposely designed to suit specific needs. Being experts in the home furnishing business, we are here to help you pick your new sofa wisely,” says Ken Brown, Business Manager of Furniture of Dalton.
The first thing to consider when buying a new couch is its style. “The style of your sofa brings out your personality and it leaves a lasting impression on your guests,” Brown pointed out. According to his advice, it also recommended picking a set that compliments the room’s interior design and theme. Be in the loop and get the latest design tips and choose from a wide range of styles such as Mid-century Modern, English Rolled Arm, Camelback, Tuxedo Sofa, Recliner, Divan, Loveseat, Cabriole, Bridgewater, Chesterfield, Lawson as well Sectional and Settee to name a few.
Depth, length and filling should also be at the top of the list when it comes to finding a comfortable couch. For general use, it is suggested that the couch should be larger than the average 20-24" depth. Moreover, for sofas that are meant to be used in theater rooms, buyers should always opt for the larger ones. Basically, the larger the sofa is, the more comfortable it will be. The couch filling material is also very important. Just like choosing a mattress; the insides of the couch will determine its comfort level. Basic knowledge about common fillings like CeriPur Poly Foam, 100% Natural Latex, Poly Fiber, Down & Feathers and Domestic Eco-Wool will come very handy in choosing the right sofa.
Users are also encouraged to pick the fabric wisely. Choosing the right fabric will determine the durability of a couch. It can also minimize maintenance which means more savings in the long run. The most common types of fabrics used in sofas are cotton, linen, synthetics, acrylic, nylon, polyester and leather. Using each type of cloth has its pros and cons. Cotton is soft and durable yet easily wrinkles and fades. Linen is spill-resistant but also wrinkles quickly. Synthetics are fade and stain resistant while acrylics are soft and wrinkles minimally. Nylon is very durable but it fades quickly. It also needs solvent-based cleaners for maintenance. On the other hand, polyester is durable and doesn’t fade easily. Lastly, leather is strong, durable and produces beautiful patina as it ages.
Ultimately, the size and functionality of the sofa matters. The best way to find out the appropriate size of a couch is by simply measuring the available space where it will be installed. From there, buyers will be able to assess the approximate dimensions of the couch to buy. They also need to make sure that the sofa will not block any traffic from the natural walkways of the house. Sectional sofas have more seating space but are a lot more difficult to reconfigure in case owners are moving to a different place in the future. Meanwhile, three-seaters, loveseats, and one-piece oversize couches have a lot more flexibility but occupancy is a little bit limited. It all comes down to the functionality of the couch. “If you are from a big family with huge room space to spare, then sectional sofas are for you. On the other hand, for small households, three-seaters and loveseats are probably more practical. Choosing a new sofa should not be daunting. If in doubt, think of quality and comfort and you are good to go,” says Brown.
