What to Look For When Buying a Leather Sofa

The sofa is usually the protagonist of any room. Because of its size, the (large) space it occupies and also because it is the furniture we use almost everyday. The sofa is at the center of everything that happens at home.

Your sofa must adapt to the use you are going to give and to all the people who will enjoy it and also must fulfill these three requirements:

  • Make it comfortable, it’s going to be used a lot, to rest, to read, to watch TV … and to be comfortable is fundamental.
  • Make it tough, a good sofa is for a lifetime, and its useful life will depend on the quality of its materials.
  • Make it nice, with design, with style … especially you like it very much. You will see it every day many times … so it is important that you do not get tired of it quickly or regret having risked too much. Choose one according to your tastes.

What to consider when choosing your sofa

  1. Measurements: Measure the space where you are going to place it and observe the distribution of the rest of the furniture that will accompany it. If you are placing two at a right angle, keep in mind the space between them. That there is sufficient passage and that all those who are going to sit can be at ease.

If it is going to be glued to the wall, or to a window, take it into account to decide the height of the backs.

If you go in the middle of the room separating rooms, check out the back of your sofa. Make it nice too.

Keep in mind who will use it daily to define the number of seats, the height, and hardness of the seat.

  1. The use that is going to give: If it is going to have an intense use or like decorative element. You have to consider who you are going to share your sofa with: children, pets, dinners, family meals … to decide the type of upholstery and the sturdiness you need.
  2. The type of filling: a Key factor that will influence the quality of the sofa. Your comfort will also depend directly on the filling of your seats and the backrest.

The most common fillings are usually feathers, foam, hybrids (foam wrapped in feathers), synthetic fibers or latex … It is not recommended that it be neither too soft nor too hard.

  1. What form should you have: For small spaces, an L-shaped sofa is best. This is achieved by adding a chaise lounge, which as it has no backrest, will give more room to the room, and you will have more seats available.

For larger rooms, it is recommended to place them in a U shape. And for the corners, the sofas in the form of angle or corner, are the best option.
