DETERMINE HOW YOU WILL USE THE SOFA
Do you need an extra bed? Extra storage space? The functionality will end up guiding you towards one or another type of sofa. It is not the same if you are going to use the sofa as an extra bed than as a multifunction sofa where you can watch TV, lie down to rest, or enjoy long gatherings with family or friends.
If you are looking for a sofa bed, what will determine the choice will be the frequency of use because if you are going to use it as a bed regularly or even permanently, it will be better to opt for a sofa with a mattress and an opening system. On the other hand, in the second case, that is, if you are looking for a multifunction sofa, it must be able to adapt to all situations. It is advisable to opt for a design that is neither too firm nor too soft, with sliding seats that become on divan and headrest and lift-up armrests.
THE SPACE AVAILABLE FOR THE SOFA
It is just as important to know the real space you have (measure it and write down the exact measurement) as the shape of the room, the location of the doors and windows, or if there are stairs nearby… Because all these elements can pose certain limitations to when choosing the sofa.
HOW DO I KNOW IF A CHEAP SOFA WILL BE COMFORTABLE?
The key is to try it and pay attention to some sensations and aspects. In this sense, “the sofa you choose must adapt to the way you sit. That is why it is recommended that you analyze the use you make of it and be able to evaluate its characteristics based on your postures. For example, check that the height and the depth of the seat are to your liking, that you can lie down comfortably, and that the height of the backrest is comfortable and natural.
We recommend that it is not excessively hard, nor too soft and the body does not sink excessively. And above all, take your time, test the sofa well by sitting down as you would at home and make sure it is totally comfortable and spacious.
