Furniture delivery people sometimes have to contend with trying to get a sofa into a home through windows or having to dismantle a sofa to take it inside. Sometimes, sofas are returned to stores because they don´t fit through doors or because they were too large or too small for the rooms they were intended for.
Test many different styles, and make sure to try them out in a way you would use a sofa at home. Do you like to sit with your legs curled up? Do you like to lie down on it? Do you feel happiest sitting in the center? Consider the height and depth of the seat. For taller people, it is best to have deeper seats. If you find it hard to rise from a seated position, try a shallower seat.
It makes sense to reupholster if your sofa is very high quality or has an unusual frame. Quite possibly, the cost of reupholstering it would be less than buying a new sofa of comparable quality. This is not very often the case, but it is possible you may have a perfectly good sofa that can be brought back to life by just re-covering with a new fabric.
