When it comes to furniture pieces, choosing a sofa in Los Angeles is one of the toughest decisions you have to make. As a centerpiece of your living space, the sofa can be your ticket to getting more house visits or a lonely pad.

With numerous sofa options in the market, it’s hard to settle on just one. To get a suitable couch, keep these following tips in mind:

      1.   Get an overview of the sofa.
        • First, you have to see the product. Since many furniture stores have catalogs online, you can get a preview of the available items. There you will also see the price and other details to help you decide early.
        • Take a look at more than one sofa. Keep your options plenty; if you limit your search to a single item, you may miss out on sofa with a better frame or fabric. You could be dead set on a sectional sofa, without realizing that you need a reclinable one.
        • Check the dimensions of the sofa choices and measure them up against your living space. Eliminate those that exceed your allocated space. Put the sofa’s dimensions in a table, so that you can compare them side by side.
        • Call the vendor if you have questions. Doing this can clear up some questions you have about the product. You can also double check if the items are in stock, and get more information not stated on the page.
      2. Head to the showroom.
        • Now that you’ve made your choices, you can proceed to the showroom. Here, you’ll have every item before your own eyes, allowing you to inspect better.
        • Have a printed copy of the sofa from the page, so that you’ll locate the item faster. Once you locate the couches, check the colors and ask a store assistant if they have other colors available.
        • Measure the sofa again using measuring tape. If you don’t have one, kindly request to the assistant if they can help in measuring.
      3. Test the sofa first.

    You wouldn’t want to make a purchase and regret it later on. This happens when you do not test things, sofa included.

      • At the showroom, ask the assistant to have you test the couches. Do a sit and stretch test — like when testing custom-made beds in Los Angeles. Check how the backrest feels when you’re sitting upright, and if your legs can fit in in a lying down position.
      • Feel the fabric, and see how comfy you are. The leather might be too warm for your liking or the wool might be too itchy. Do a little bounce on it, and check if the supporting frame is comfortable. Check every nuance of every sofa and test thoroughly, until you find the sofa that will suit you.
