One of the most important investments you’re likely to make for your living space is by buying a couch. Before you buy, check the total width, excluding armrests and try it to ensure it suits the whole family and the couch is comfortable enough to sit and relax. Spend as much as you can afford on a quality frame. A solid hardwood frame is a good option, but be wary of a particleboard or metal construction.
Always remember that what’s inside a couch is just as important as what’s used on the outside, so check the cushion. A good combination is back cushions filled with feathers and seat cushions filled with foam or fibre. Your choice of upholstery fabric will have a huge impact on the room, so choose carefully to ensure it fits with your scheme.
