The scale of the traditional sofa (in form, not in style) is usually from 6 to 8 feet, although longer, or shorter, sofas can be custom made. The average sofa fits three people comfortably and is the piece most often chosen for the living room. In terms of style, sofas can be found in a wide range. Look for differences in the arms, legs, back, and sofa cushions (loose or attached). Varying upholstery details will also set traditional sofas apart on the showroom floor.
What happens when it's your order that goes wrong? Couches are big items — and they can be difficult to return. Before picking furniture, read through the returns and exchange policy to prepare yourself for the worst-case scenario. Here are a few conditions to keep in mind: How long is the couch under warranty? Most stores will refund a damaged product for at least a year. What are the terms of the return policy? Will signs of use — like a wine spill — negate the policy? Will the company pay for shipping? Some may cover the expense for the first few weeks, leaving the responsibility on you to cover a likely expensive shipping bill after week three.
Now comes the fun part: actually holding bits and pieces of your potential new couch in your hand. Once you've narrowed down your sofa color and fabric selections. Choose a few different selections: pick a range of similar colors, or trial a shade in both microfiber and velvet. Once you have the fabric samples in-hand, don´t make your decision immediately. Gut instinct may be valuable, but so is thoughtful consideration. The perfect color and fabric depends on the color of your hardwood floors, the exact shade of white you´ve slathered on your walls, the other furniture in your room — and even the sunlight.
