Buyer's Guide

WHAT IS THE AVERAGE SOFA SIZE? 

Sofas vary in size but for a standard sofa, it would have to be 6 to 8 feet long and 32” to 40” deep. Also keeping in mind that the actual depth of a sofa’s seating area will be reduced by the depth of the sofa’s arms and the depth of the back as well 

IS A 2 SEATER A COMPACT SOFA? 

Generally speaking, a compact sofa is a small sofa designed for small spaces, so if the 2-seater is small then yes, it will be a compact sofa. However, compact sofas can come as recliners or even sectionals or in other designs and styles as well. 

WHAT ARE SOFAS FILLED WITH? 

Sofa fillings are either made from foam, fibre or feathers. Each filling will leave its own feel, some from a firm and stiff others to fluffy and soft. 

WHAT IS BEST MATERIAL FOR A SOFA? 

Since a sofa will probably be used every day for different activities it will need durable material. The most common would be cotton and linen as they can last longer in most cases. However, though expensive, top-grain leather will last even longer and will take a while before showing signs of wear. 

WHAT IS THE EASIEST COUCH FABRIC TO CLEAN? 

Microfiber couches are easy to maintain and clean especially for spills and stains. They are string and can withstand heavy usage and are resistant to most casualties. 

HOW LONG WILL A GOOD SOFA LAST? 

On average a sofa will last about 15 years depending on the framing and material used. However if heavily used and poorly maintained it could last for 10 or even less years. It also depends on the upholstery, quality leather will get you up to 25 years or more if properly maintained. 

WHEN SHOULD I REPLACE MY SOFA? 

You should consider changing your sofa when it no longer gives you the comfort you need or when its now a liability and too many repairs are required. You should also consider replacing it when the cushions are now flat or at least before the cushions start sagging. While it’s still in saleable condition at least you get something out of it. 

IS A FUTON BETTER THAN  A SOFA BED?

If you like moving things around a lot and you like redecorating regularly especially in a small space then a futon is better. Futons are more versatile and are also cheaper when compared to regular sofa bed. But if you want a full on setting for a house then a sofa bed would be ideal, its best when you’re it amongst other furniture pieces so you get something that will blend in directly.

IS A SOFA  AND A COUCH THE SAME THING?

Some sources describe a sofa as a wooden bench that’s covered in cushions and blankets saying that the term “sofa” comes from the Arabic word “Suffah”. These may seat 4 or more people. A couch on the other hand, by different sources, is described as a comfort-driven piece that normally accommodates maybe 2 to 3 people. They also say a couch has no arms and in terms of size is always smaller when compared to a sofa.

Final Thoughts

To sum it all up, when buying a sofa of any kind you should have an idea of what you want, how you want to use it and what you expect from using it. You need to know the size you want, the shape, the style, the fabric and even the color.
