For instance, a camel-back sofa will be highest in the center. Measure from there to the floor because sometimes sofa legs are attached. If the sofa legs are screwed on, you might be able to get away with just measuring from the top to the bottom of the sofa. If that measurement passes through the entryway, then you can screw the legs on once you have the sofa inside the room.

When too many visually heavy things are on one side of the room the entire space looks unbalanced.

A more flexible style option is choosing a set of upholstered chairs to complement your new sofa. The chairs don't have to be an exact match for the sofa but can incorporate the sofa´s color in a pattern or texture. Using a set of chairs instead of a matching loveseat gives you even more opportunities to add color from your color palette and more options for furniture placement.

Some would like a sofa they can sink into, while others prefer a firmer seat. Which one do you like? Try sitting on different fills to select the level of firmness or softness that you like. Consider if you want the same level of softness or firmness in the seat and back. They do not have to be the same.

The corners are further strengthened by the addition of reinforcing blocks for extra support and strength.

Additional layers of plywood can help reinforce the frame, so as you can see, construction matters as much as material. If you must choose a sofa with a plywood frame, make sure it has at least 11 to 13 layers of plywood.

DO have it covered in an appropriate fabric. If you have kids and pets you’ll want something that is either easy to clean or can hide spills and dirt.

D o you want curvy and round or straight and streamlined? Do you want one long cushion on the seat or several? Think about all these things before you buy.

There were many "oohs" and "aahs" from my parents, along with accounts of how much more comfy it felt and how happy they were that they wouldn´t have to think about getting rid of it anytime soon. There was much rejoicing. The two things you need to determine before rushing out to purchase your poly-fil are: a) whether or not the foam in your seat cushions is able to be removed; and b) if there is an access point to the inside of your seat back cushions.
