Just as your sofa shouldn’t be too big or too small for your space, it shouldn’t be too big or too small for you, either. If you are tall, make sure that the seat is deep enough to allow you to sit in comfort. If you are not very tall or have bad knees, look for a shallow seat that lets you rise out of it easily.

Two small square tables, placed side by side, give a slightly more formal look than the more modern large coffee table. A matched pair looks best, but a mismatched set of small tables, of exactly the same height, can be used together with matching tops. If you have a pair of small antique tables, this may be the perfect place to use them. For a very rustic or Cottage Style home, a long, low, wooden bench is a perfect touch. The long flat top works well for placing books and beverages without adding too much formality.

This dramatic oversized sectional gives any living space a striking sense of scale, and its low-profile design adds to the expansive effect.

There are two types of engineered wood, plywood, and particle board. Particle board is not suitable for sofa frames, or any weight bearing frames for that matter because they are made from wood chips and fibers glued together. Plywood is engineered by gluing several thin layers of wood together and can be strong enough for sofa frames depending on the type of wood, and the thickness of the frame.

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.

All moving parts on a sofa bed or reclining sofa should clear the fabric completely to avoid tearing. You don't want any injuries to yourself or damage to your upholstery from a faulty mechanism. When you check out the back of your sofa, there should be no bumps or hard spots. Run the palm of your hand over it. This is especially important in a tight back sofa. Not only will bumps and hard spots mar the look of your sofa over a short period of time, they will also feel uncomfortable.

If you're unable to reach up into the corners, a tool or something like a ruler wrapped with a soft towel will help to send the fill up to round out any sunken edges. I used a cordless telephone. True story. Add filling until you can't add anymore, and then add more. Continue to add fill as you back your hand out of the cushion, making sure there is a decent amount down by the zipper -you don´t want what you stuffed up in the top of your cushion to all settle to the bottom.

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.

When installing shelves, keep all the rules in mind - hang at eye level (or in the case of a grouping the center of the group should be at eye level), and pay attention than the width of the sofa so that the shelves are hung in relation. This isn´t to say you can´t break the rules depending on what you want for your space, but if you're unsure about placement these rules help.

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. High-quality cushions have down-proof ticking under the upholstery fabric to prevent feathers from poking through. Cushions filled just with down are high-maintenance and can need daily attention.
