Microfiber Sofas – Tips on Choosing the Perfect One

A sofa could be a major investment and one of the largest pieces of furniture in your living room, so you have to take many things into consideration before purchasing your perfect microfiber sofa.

Things to Consider Before Buying your Sofa:

Fitting into Your Home
The most important factor to take into consideration is the size of the sofa and the space you have available for it in your living room or the area where it would be standing, especially the width and the depth. Start by measuring the room and remember to also measure the doorframes and staircases your sofa should fit through when you bring your sofa home.

Depth and Softness for Comfort
The depth of the sofa plays a major role in the comfort of your couch and depending on your preference, lying or sitting on the sofa, you should take it into consideration as well. If you prefer cuddling and sleeping on you sofa, look for a deep sofa for extra comfort. Softer sofas are usually more comfortable for lying and snuggling while a stiffer cushion will be advised if you prefer sitting upright for reading or working on your laptop.

Seating
If you buy a microfiber sofa for your home and you want it for the comfort of yourself and your family, look for a two or three seater. If you need more seats, you might consider a microfiber sectional sofa instead, seating many people at once.

The Fabric
Sofas set the style of the room they are in. The fabric you choose for your sofa determines the comfort and the style of your sofa. Softer microfiber fabrics, like plush or chenille, adds comfort to your sofa while crisp and smooth materials have a neater and tidier look. Think about the style of the room your sofa will be standing in and then choose between a modern microfiber sofa or a contemporary microfiber sofa.

Covers for your sofa
Covers for your sofa would be recommended if your sofa is a light color, you have kids or if you occasionally have dinner on your sofa. Having a spare cover could save you money and humiliation rather than having to replace your sofa after a while. Covers are not that expensive and could be handy if you change the color scheme of the room and just need to get a new matching sofa cover instead of buying an entire new sofa.

Color
Be sure to find a color that fits and compliments your room. Sofas come in a great variety of colors and patterns and you should choose very wisely. You will most probably not find a perfect match for the material of your other furniture, but they should coordinate and look good together. When choosing a color for you sofa, think practical. Your new couch could look disastrous after a few months if you chose a white sofa and your little one wipes his chocolate fingers on it or your puppy jumps on it with muddy paws. Black or very dark colors are not recommended if you have animals living on the couch and leaving their hair behind. So, think about who and what the sofa will be used for before choosing a color.

Durability
The durability of your sofa depends on three things: The material or fabric that it is made of, the quality of the construction and the treatment it’s going to get from its owners. Take these things into consideration before buying or choosing your perfect sofa.

A sofa could be your best or worse furniture investment, so take your time and shop around and choose wisely – you should be as comfortable with your choice as your sofa is comfortable to its users.
