Tips for choosing the right sofa

Consejos a la hora de elegir un sofá
We have always had interest in knowing people’s needs when they are at home.
This curiosity has revealed us interesting insights: we have verified that almost everybody likes covering themselves with a throw when sitting on a sofa or armchair (even in warm countries...), that most people likes lying down on sofas instead of just sitting, etc.
With our enquiries, we found out that approximately 30% of people who buy a sofa repent in the following two months because they realise they made a mistake and chose the wrong sofa.
A sofa for home is an important purchase, and it is essential to be well informed in order to choose correctly.
In this article we will try to give some important guidelines to have in mind when choosing a new sofa, to avoid making a mistake.

  1. Measure the room where you will place the sofa and make a small drawing or scheme.
  2. Take two or three photos with your mobile, and maybe a short video. This way, the professional at the shop will be able to advise you best.
  3. Bear in mind the number of people who will use the sofa regularly (for example, a sofa with chaise longue with just 3 seats isnot suitable for a family of 4 or 5 members).
  4. Think about the usual way ofusing the sofa. Often, when we try the sofas at the shop we sit on them, but at home we usually lie on them.
  5. Now it comes to choosing between leather and fabric. Both areexceptional materials for a sofa, butit is very important to know their characteristics to choose the most suitable option for each one of us.
  6. Ask for the guarantees offered for the sofa. The minimum guaranteeby law is two years. Here you canfind differences between sofas. It isimportant to read the small printto make sure that it has no unfairterms.
  7. Check the origin of production. Although generalizations are not always good, an important part ofthe products manufactured in Asia do not comply with the minimum quality requirements. It often happens that cheap items at the end result expensive.
  8. Find a professional shop and ask for advice from professionals: there are many more choices of sofas and armchairs than we can imagine, and we should try to be receptive to their suggestions. After a chat with the professional, he will be able to recommend us the best options for our home. We should not trust sellers who try to foist a particular sofa on us with a reasoning like “is the best-selling model”, “It’s on sale this week only”, etc. We cannot give in to pressure of “you will lose the chance if you don’t buy it now”; a sofa is an item to enjoy for many years, and we must think carefully before making the decision.
