Wooden Sofa Set

How to Buy a Wooden Sofa For Utility, Plus Decor
A sofa is not only for sitting and relaxing for a while. A sofa set now defines the personality of your living room or bedroom wherever it is placed. However, it is also true that the basic function of sofa still is to provide comfort. Not only this, sofa has now become a multi-functional piece of furniture. Sofa beds or storage sofas are common and adored by people. So, when you are out to buy a sofa, how do you know what sofa to buy? Here are some tips on buying the right sofa for utility as well as home decor!

    * Plan beforehand about where you want to put your new sofa and why you need it- only for decoration or for other functions too. There are many types of wooden sofa- some are upholstered and some are not. Know the features of these different types of sofa sets to determine your needs.
    * Take the measurement of the space where you intend to place your new sofa. Measure the height and width of your doors as well as stairs too. You definitely do not want to renovate the whole house for a sofa.
    * If you need a sofa to simply sit on, length ranging from 65 to 75 inches is enough for a room of average size.
    * Check the quality of sofa that you consider for buying. The frame and sofa legs are most important factors in a wooden sofa for its durability as well as comfort.
    * Ensure that the sofa frame is made of kiln-dried hardwood.
    * See if the joints are properly attached or not. They should be glued, doweled and screwed for maximum security.
    * Check for corners. Whether they are further strengthened with the help of reinforcing blocks. It is good for giving extra support.
    * Although a plywood frame is considered of inferior quality but if your budget is tight and you decide to buy one, ensure it has at least eleven to thirteen layers of plywood.
    * Wooden sofa is generally upholstered with fabric or leather for giving seating support and maximum comfort. Read tips for buying upholstered furniture and ensure that you get the best sofa for your home.
    * Always check the sofa legs for ensuring whether they are sturdy or not? They should be joined in a well secured manner with the frame of sofa and should also be enough strong to take the bulky weight of sofa as well as people who will sit or sleep on it.
