Choosing a sofa is an important decision, and indeed investment for your home. Your sofa is multi-purpose and is the place for lounging, entertaining, reading and even relaxing in the evening with some refreshments. For that reason, it makes sense that we choose one that not only looks great but has that special lasting power for years to come.

This week at Kube, we have put together our top tips for choosing your perfect sofa.

Select a sofa to fit your living room

To make the process of fitting your new piece into your home as seamless as possible, prepare by measuring the space you have. Once you have an idea of what width and depth you are working with, our team at Kube can help you find the perfect piece to fit.

Your room may even work better with a corner sofa or L-shape sofa, and we have lots of choice for you in our sofa range at Kube.

Spatial awareness of the size of your new furniture in your room can be difficult. A top tip that some customers find helpful is to cut out the shape of your new sofa in newspaper and place it on the floor in the intended space. This will give you a feel for the sofa size and shape before you bring it home.

What finishes are right for my sofa?

Your choice of fabric and colour will have a significant impact on your room. With that in mind, some points to consider when picking a fabric finish are your own personal style, the room’s ambient lighting and what colour palate and other materials are in the room.

While some customers will always go for a timeless leather look, others with young families, perhaps, often opt for something which is easy to clean. A sofa cover in the form of one of our gorgeous sofa throws can also work to add some colour and texture to a leather sofa.

Our team in-store are there to help and will be happy to show you the vast range of leather and fabric in an array of colours in our sofa range.

Seat comfort to suit you

With sofas, many factors from seat depth to cushion softness can vary. For this reason, we like to encourage customers to try before they buy. Consider how you like to sit or lounge whether you require a high or low back or like firm or soft seat comfort.
