When you are preparing to make a large purchase for your home there are so many factors to consider. Shape, size, color, price, warranty, reviews, and more all need to be considered before you make your final purchase. Here at Carpet Care 2000 our customers frequently call us before they make flooring or furniture purchases. They ask us what kind of materials would be most durable, which ones clean the easiest, and so much more. We decided that it would be helpful for all of you to hear some of our best tips for selecting the perfect couch.
Upholstery Furniture Placement
The first thing that you will want to decide is where the couch will be going in your home. If you have lived in your home for awhile you already have a spot where your current couch is located. Now is the chance to decide if you want to change up the way that you have your furniture or arranged or not. If you are moving into a new home you will need to decide how you want to place your furniture for the first time. Take time to really think about how you want your room to flow. Select a layout that will work best for you and your family.
Pick the Right Size Sofa for the Room
After you have decided where you will want your couch to go the next step is to measure the area. Having the measurements for your space before you go shopping will help prevent you from falling in love with a couch that is not the correct size for your home. When you go shopping you will want to take your measurements and a measuring tape so that you can make sure that the size will work for you.
Couch, Loveseat & Chair Arrangement
In addition to knowing where your couch will go you will also want to decide what shape and orientation will be best for your room. Some people prefer a couch and a love seat. Others prefer two couches. Still others like to have sectionals in their homes. When you make this decision, you will want to take into account how many people you are trying to seat on your couch on a regular basis.
Upholstered Furniture Colors to Hide Stains
Next up you will want to decide what color/colors you would like your couch to be. Some people have one color and one color only that they want their couch to be. Other people will have a few options that they feel would work for their home. Choose a color that will compliment the rest of the décor in your home and that will hide stains the best. Browns, grays and dark colors tend to hide dirt and stains easily.
