Buying a new sofa when you’ve got a young family is always a difficult business – you want something of good quality that will last you a long time because sofas can often be pretty expensive and you don’t want to be buying one every few years. But you also need a sofa of sufficient durability that it won’t be a complete disaster when you get the inevitable spills of juice or milk, crayon scribblings, or worse. And you also want something attractive because, let’s face it, your kids are going to wreck the house, it would be nice to have one thing that looks nice.
After a long day, most people like to relax in front of the TV. Since we spend so many hours on the sofa, it makes sense that choosing the right one for your home is vital. A good looking, comfortable sofa should blend beautifully into the room and not overwhelm it.
Think about who will be using the sofa most and consider if there are any special requirements. For example, if you are taller, you should consider getting a sofa with deep seating. For someone with bad knees, shallow seating and a tight back would make it easier to get up.
