This may be the most common mistake of them all. This happens when you don‘t measure your space or the sofa or sometimes neglect both. Don’t go by how big the sofa looks in the store. A sofa might look deceptively small in a showroom but could end up being too big for your room, so not measuring your space or your sofa can create many problems. Other than measuring the size of your space, pay attention to the scale. Your sofa should be the same scale as your other furniture so it doesn’t seem too big or too small placed alongside the rest of it.
There are some mistakes that people often make when buying a sofa. These are small things in themselves, and so are easily overlooked. But all sofa-buying mistakes featured here do end up having a big impact on your satisfaction with your sofa purchase.
Sofas are big, so where they´re placed can have a big impact on the traffic flow in the room. People should never have to awkwardly step around items in order to pass through a room. Nor should there be any tripping hazards. It‘s important to make sure that there are a couple of feet between the coffee table and sofa, and between the sofa and any chairs. Create a clear path so people can walk from one end of the room to the other without difficulty.
