Needless to say, buy the best quality you can afford. Often sleepers in higher price points are also better made. If you have a very small space then Twin size sofa beds might be the perfect answer for you as these are less than 5 feet wide and they are great for sleeping one person. The mattress for a twin size sleeper sofa is about 39" wide.

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. Deep vertical grooves on a tight back are the distinguishing features of a channel back. Loose cushions are separate from the sofa back, as opposed to attached back sofas. This allows for covers to be easily removed for cleaning.

When too many visually heavy things are on one side of the room the entire space looks unbalanced. Since sofas tend to be large in scale they take up quite a bit of visual space, and they require something of equal weight across from them to balance out the room. This is why you often see two chairs placed directly across from a sofa. Together the chairs balance out the weight of the sofa.

No one needs the frustration and shopper’s regret that comes from a hasty and ill thought out purchase. A good salesperson will understand and help you find the one that is best suited to your needs.

However, sectionals can work beautifully when pulled away from the walls. Since they provide so much seating they’re not often accompanied by a lot of other pieces of furniture, meaning you’ve got the space to play around with them. So give them some breathing room and allow space behind to walk. In some cases, sectionals can also work as room dividers, with one side providing a visual break between spaces. So don't get pigeonholed by the shape, and make your sectional work for your space.

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. DO become familiar with sofa styles before choosing. Do you want high arms (tuxedo sofa), medium arms (lawson) low arms (bridgewater) or no arms (slipper)? 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.

Most sofas sold these days are not made of a single frame construction. In many cases the sofa seats, backs and arms are manufactured as one piece and then the legs are screwed in after. So if you want to make a change it’s really easy. Can’t find new legs you like? Simply spray paint the old ones to a new color and you’ll be pleasantly surprised at the difference.

People are creatures of habit, and when it comes to relaxing we often, without thinking, head to our favorite spot on the sofa. But sitting in the same spot over and over again can do the sofa quite a bit of harm—crushing the fibers and wearing down the springs underneath. So mix it up and sit on different parts of the sofa. One day sit on the left side, one day sit on the right, and another day try the middle. Distributing the weight evenly over time will help anyone spot from deteriorating too quickly.

Mirrors are important decorative tools.They reflect light, they open up spaces, and they just make rooms look better in general. Above a sofa can be a great place to hang a large mirror, but keep in mind that whenever possible mirrors should be hung across from windows or something else that‘s visually appealing.

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.
