Does the thought of trawling through so many websites stress you out? Take a deep breath and know it´s all for the greater good of your home.

The worst part of buying a couch online: taking a chance on your comfort. If possible, it never hurts to take a trip to the showroom for a quick lay-down on the sofa you‘ve selected. But for most online retailers, there‘s no showroom.
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.

Only consider selling if it is in reasonable shape. Here‘s a good way to gauge the condition: if the tables were turned, would you want to buy it?
