Every time you buy a new sofa, measure it before handing over the cash. You should also measure the space where you plan to put it. If you are buying online, find out all these dimensions before you buy. There are a couple of important reasons for doing this.
When you measure a sofa, don´t just stop at the length or the width because that will not give you the full picture and the measurements can be incorrect. Here is how to measure properly: Width: Measure the width from arm to arm because that is usually the widest part of the sofa. You need to make sure that you are taking the width measurements at the widest point. For instance, if the sofa you selected has rolled arms, measure from outside the widest part of one arm to the other arm and not at the bottom near the legs.
The most important things to consider are quality and comfort, especially if you plan to spend any amount of time on your sofa. The best looking sofa in the whole world cannot measure up to the most comfortable one. That is why you need to test drive one before you buy, just the way you would test drive a car.
