One of the vital pieces of furniture for a home is a wooden sofa set. This is not only where you cans eat your guests for an evening for fun but also where you can relax, read a book or enjoy a cup of tea. Sofa sets re typically sold in two formats. They may either be designed as a three-seater with a pair of complimentary single seater sofas or a three seater sofa and a two eater sofa. The number of people the sofas can seat is the same and hence, the choice between the two depends on your personal preference. Though sofas are bulky, the good news is that you can shop for them online. Here are a few tips to help you get going.
Keep your room plan in mind
When you pick a sofa, you must make sure it matches the space available. For example, if you have large windows, avoid picking a high backed sofa that will block the view out of these windows. Similarly, maybe your room is a long, narrow room. In such cases, look for lightweight sofas that will make the space look airy. If you have a very large living room, you may choose to have two sets of seating areas. In such cases, look for definitive styles in your sofas so that they complement each other and the room.
Double check the dimensions
Images can sometimes create the wrong impression of the dimensions of a sofa. Hence, don’t only go by visuals, map out the length and breadth of the wooden sofa set on your living room floor before confirming your order. Check the units. There’s a world of difference between 30cm and 30 inches! Map out the large sofa as well as the twos eater sofa or the single seater sofas that will be accompanying it. If you have windows in the room, it is also a good idea to trace the height of the sofa on the walls. This will give you an idea of the visual space occupied by the furniture.
Don’t limit yourself to one website
Just because your friend had a great experience with a particular furniture retailer does not mean that you should buy your sofas from there. There are many furniture manufacturers and retailers online today. Look for a retailer who has good reviews, clear policies on assembly, shipping and returns and a helpful attitude towards answering your questions. For example, you may have a doubt about what kind of wood was used to make the sofa. The retailer should be confident enough of his furniture to be able to list out such details on the product page.
With the convenience of online shopping, you can browse through millions of wooden sofa set designs on your phone, place an order and have it delivered and installed in place without the slightest inconvenience. Once the sofa set is in place, you can look for other complementary living room furniture to complete your décor. So, are you ready to get yourself a sofa?
