Sofas & Couches
Buying a Sofa and Couches Set
Buying a Sofas and Couches set is one of the biggest decisions you’ll make when furnishing your home. While it’s easy to look at pictures online and order a sofa set from a department store, a better idea is to choose a style that suits your needs and your budget. Once you’ve settled on the style and the materials, you can then go online and look for a set. If you already have an idea of the look you want to achieve, it’s time to begin the shopping process.
Measure your room first before shopping for a sofa set. You’ll want to measure the opening and the doorway, since these two things can make or break your purchase. Also, consider who will be using the sofa. How many people will sit on it? What’s the seating height? How high should the backrest be? Do you want your sofa to sit high off the floor or low to the floor? Then, you can choose between a traditional sofa and a contemporary one.
The frame of a sofa set is usually made of clear wood, with thick enough wood to support the heavy tension webbing. A weak frame is unlikely to support the weight of a person seated on it. To avoid this, make sure the frame is crafted with clean-cut double-doweled glue joints. Major parts of a sofa include the cushioning and springs, so you’ll need separate frames for the major parts. The backrest is usually reinforced with reinforcing slats.
