3 Couch Queries To Ask BEFORE You Buy

Shopping for furniture is often stressful, but it doesn’t have to be. What should you be looking for in the perfect sofa? And how do you know when you’ve found it? At the end of the day, finding the perfect sofa is about you and how you feel. But, you still need to know the right questions to ask. Here are 3 questions every sofa searcher should be asking before they splash out.

  1. Do you love it?
    A sofa can be as practical and as cheap as it likes, but if you don’t actually like it- what’s the point? The most important part about decorating is you, and if a specific sofa fills you with joy- go for it! A sofa is a big investment, and compromising on something you dislike is only going to make you regret buying it, or cause you to have to spend twice the dosh later on something you actually want.
  2. Does it fit?
    There’s nothing worse than picking your dream sofa and planning your entire room around it, but when it arrives- the specific spot it needs to slide in to tie the whole room together is just too small! Do yourself a favour and make sure you check your measurements and always leave a few inches space, either side, just in case.
Does it do what I want?
It can be tempting to become set on a certain sofa and forget the reason why you wanted it in the first place. Keep purpose in mind while you shop and always ask yourself these three questions before you finalise your order. If you were looking for a comfy family sofa for pets and children, that brand spanking new velvet bombshell is going to be a disappointment when you realise you’re going to have to keep it in a plastic sheet at all times. Not fun!
