If you have many items to sell, a garage sale can be a good place to sell your couch, since such sales usually draw a good crowd of people looking for exactly this kind of bargain.

Make sure that you are getting high-density foam because lesser-quality foam can start breaking down pretty quickly, causing sags, and the fabric does not stay taut when that happens. If you want a really soft seat, consider down cushions. These are considered to be the premium choice, and as you might imagine they are also among the most expensive.

Don´t assume that it will be same day delivery or next day delivery because different retail stores have different policies regarding furniture delivery. Maybe they deliver only certain days of the week or the warehouse in a different location. Even if that is the case, delivery will be speedier than if you were to order a customized sofa.

A camel back is a traditional sofa back that is shaped much like a camel‘s hump, raised in the middle, and sloping down lower at the ends. It often imparts a formal look.

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?
