Common Mistakes When Purchasing a New Couch

Picture this – Your living space by Easylife Kitchens Faerie Glen has just been completed. Now it’s time to purchase updated and new furniture for the room. 

Many factors get easily overlooked when purchasing a new couch. You need to ensure that the couch you decide on will meet all of your needs and will fit in the space available in your home.

One of the most common mistakes made is when people purchase a couch that is either too big or too small for the room. This usually happens when you do not accurately measure the couch or the space the couch will be in. The size of a couch in a showroom can be deceiving, so you need to correctly measure the couch and the space to avoid unforeseen issues.

With that being said, you should also make sure that you fit comfortably on the couch, especially if you are a taller or shorter individual. If you tend to be on the shorter side, opt for a more shallow seat as this will allow you to rise out of it easily when you stand up. Don’t be afraid to test it out in the showroom – sit on it, lie on it, and use it as you would at home to get a more accurate feel for it before making that important decision.

It is important to make sure that your couch’s overall style, look and feel match with your other furniture in perfect harmony. It should be aesthetically pleasing while more importantly being functional and comfortable. It should not look out of place as this could be a huge eyesore.

Choosing the wrong textures, fabrics or colours can turn out to be an expensive mistake. You need to be cautious when making this selection and try to make choices based on the functionality of the couch. You wouldn’t want an expensive, delicate fabric to be destroyed by dogs or little children before you even get the chance to enjoy it. Always bring a colour swatch home so that you can see how the colour will look in your home with the lighting in the room, as well as how it will look against wall colours and furnishings.

Buying a couch that is of high quality may be more expensive, but a good purchase will guarantee that the couch will last longer and that you will not need to replace the couch shortly. This will save you money in the long run, as they are generally built with stronger, more stable frames and will hold their shape and comfort for longer.

As you can see, there are many factors that get overlooked when deciding on a new couch. Keep these tips in mind the next time you are couch-hunting!
