Buying furniture can be quite stressful.

Make sure you have no regrets when investing in pieces that fill up your space because it’s these additions that make your home, home.
In this article we’ll be sharing 5 key tips to consider when choosing the right couch for you. If you do go ahead and purchase a couch with Homewood, our designers are here to guide you through the process. They know what is best when it comes to furniture that fits your needs, taste and lifestyle.
1. Invest in comfort – not just aesthetics:
We all love a good-looking couch,
but you’ll regret buying something that
you can’t stand to sit in for more than 5 minutes!
Choose a piece that not only exudes comfort,
but that actually is comfortable.
2. Get to know the bones:
Investing in a quality frame will see you
through many years of, well, lounging. Ask the
sales person thorough questions about the frame
(solid is best) and the guarantee. You can never
know too much.
3. What’s inside?
Choose the right inner for your cushions.
You don’t want flat cushions in a years’ time.
Ask about the different options for cushion
4. Choose your fabric carefully.
Beautiful fabrics can be fun and add impact to a
room. But always consider whether this style will
stand the test of time. Don’t forget to think about
where your couch will be sitting – you’ll need a
more durable, fade resistant fabric if kids, animals or direct sunlight are involved.
5. Measure, then measure again.
And again. Don’t forget to consider doors
and stairways that your couch will need to
pass through. There’s a reason the saying
prevention is better than cure came around.
No amount of prep goes to waste.
