Choosing looks over comfort: You may come across the ‘perfect‘ sofa - the one you‘ve been searching for - but if it is not comfortable, you will wish you went for something cozier. Although it may look great, is it deep enough if you‘re tall or too deep so your feet can‘t touch the floor? Is it too firm or so soft that you have trouble getting up? If you like to lie down on your sofa, are the arms at a comfortable height? Think about your requirements for the sofa prior to purchasing, if it is for use in the television room buy something that is comfortable for the family, and think about durability if people are going to have their feet on the sofa or it is high use, for a formal living room the look of the sofa will have greater importance, select something that is comfortable to sit on, but it does not necessarily need to be comfortable to lie down on.
Choosing the wrong colour or material: One main decision is whether you are going to go for a leather or a fabric sofa. A few questions to ask yourself are: how much use will this sofa get? What kind of area is it in and therefore what kind of spills is it going to be prone to? If it is a high-use area, leather is durable, easy to clean and non- absorbent for spills and smells. With professional help, minor tears or scratches can be repaired with great results. Fabric, on the other hand, takes a bit more maintenance. It can be protected with a
Purchasing the wrong configuration or style: The style of your sofa should complement the style of your house and your existing furniture. It should also function in a way that suits your lifestyle and functions for you. Buying a low-line, sleek sofa that looks great in the showroom amongst contemporary furniture is great if you have a modern home. But if you really prefer a comfy, cushioned seat that you can sink into, keep looking for the one that will suit you and your home. For configurations, will a simple 2 or 3 seater work in your space or can it take a larger corner or chaise lounge? Do you move house regularly? Chaise lounges are a great solution for many modern apartments, but if you move around a lot, the chaise is fixed on that side, so it may not work in your next home, a 3 seater & an ottoman would be a better choice. It‘s best to decide before hitting the shops and being swayed by what‘s on display. In most cases, every sofa design is available in a range of various sizes and configurations to suit your needs.
Once you have formed a solid idea of the type of modular sofa you are looking for you can then begin shopping for it. Sectional sofa units are available from a variety of retailers including your local high street stores, online retail stores and even direct from the furniture manufacturers. Many luxury furniture makers offer a bespoke service and are able to create unique furniture pieces in accordance with your specific requirements and sketches. It is also worth looking around for some inspiration before you begin shopping to have a good idea in mind of what style and design you would ideally like. Don‘t be afraid to approach manufacturers with your ideas, they are often able to expand on them and create the sofa of your dreams.
Buying a sofa in the wrong size & proportion: It is crucial that you measure your space and work out the ideal size that your sofa needs to be. Think about how many people you need to seat regularly and where the best placement in the room would be (keeping in mind doorways and other furniture pieces). It‘s a great idea to measure your current sofa to get an idea or alternatively, measure out on the ground with masking tape or newspaper different sizes. This will help you visualise the item in the room and how you move around it. Secondly, even though it may fit within your required space the overall proportion will impact the look within the room. A sofa with chunkier or heavier overall proportions will appear larger in the room, whilst a sofa that is raised from the floor and has slim arms and seat proportions will appear lighter and visually consume less space. Use this to your advantage, look for heavier styles if you are looking to fill a large room and vice versa, and be aware of the impact the showroom has on the look of the sofa, in general showrooms will be very open and have high ceilings, making all sofas look smaller than they are.
