Buying a couch online can feel like a leap of faith. To soothe your worries, start with this simple step: measure. There are a number of things to consider before purchasing your new couch, but the most important consideration is how the furniture will fit in your space. You´ll need to know a few different measurements: first, get the raw numbers for the length and width of the room in which your couch will reside. Yes, you might be able to squish an 84-inch couch into your space — but will your guests be squished, too? Ideally, there should be 36 inches between the wall and your furniture and 18 inches between your couch and the coffee table. This can also help you decide between a standard rectangular couch and a sectional. After all, nothing makes a cramped space feel tighter than an awkward sofa leg jutting across the floor.
This sofa can be converted into an extra bed for guests. The newest convertibles have an inflatable mattress, making the bed more comfortable than in years past and ensuring your company will stay longer, which may or may not be a pleasant circumstance. Contemporary sleeper sofas may simply flatten out to create a bed, and is perfect for when you don't want extra cushions laying on the floor in the middle of the night. Although sleeper sofas aren´t known for comfort, you can purchase padded mattress covers to place on top of the provided mattress.
Consider the couch's structure, too. A traditional, wood-framed couch may be a terrible choice for a home with kids — sharp corners have caused many emergency rooms worth of boo-boos. If there are little feet playing chase around your living room, consider soft, upholstered edges. Once you've settled on a size and style, start scouring the web. Leave no website unturned. There are a number of places to buy couches online (you can even hit up stores like Amazon or Target, which have a surprising selection, if you´re on a tight budget).
