Your Ultimate Couch-Buying Guide

Your Ultimate Couch-Buying Guide

Having a comfortable couch in your home (preferably more than one), is something we tend to think of as a given. The role that a couch plays in our lives is not something that we give a lot of thought to, but take it away and it will stand out like a sore thumb. Choosing a couch is not something that should be taken lightly.

When you choose your dream couch and want to pick the perfect spot for it in your home, keep these tips in mind:

  1. The lifestyle link

The first thing that should be considered when choosing a couch is your lifestyle.

  • Do you have children?
  • Do you have pets?
  • Is the couch going to be used for regular relaxing sessions or just for special occasions?
  • Is this your lounge couch or your living room couch?

These are all important questions to take into consideration when choosing your perfect couch partner.

Your children are your whole life and their passion in life is to make your life as colourful as possible (thanks to the colouring set they got for Christmas), a light coloured lounge suite may not be the best option. If you love taking a nap on your couch, then a comfy, corner suite may be the answer to all your couch prayers!

Try before you buy

We are all different and, of course, wonderfully so! But that does mean that there is never truly a one-size-fits-all solution. The same can be said  when it comes to your couch. What may be beautiful and comfortable to one person, can be completely wrong for another.

When you visit us in store, you will have the opportunity to try out our wide range of options and find the perfect fit for your needs and your home. You will get the chance to imagine every movie night, every coffee date and every weekend nap that you will spend on your perfect couch.

 

Be an addition, not a distraction

Your couch should be a vibrant part of your lounge or living room. Something that is a gorgeous addition to your home and not a black hole that distracts from your spunky design choices.

When you go couch shopping, make sure you know what your lounge area needs.

  • What space is available?
  • What colour is prominent and what will work well with that existing colour scheme?
  • What couch option will make your lounge look bigger and more comfortable and not small and cramped?

These are the questions you need to ask yourself before making your choice. You want your couch to be a place where you can relax, a stress-free environment and not a place where you are constantly bumping into things, because you have to climb over your furniture to just get out the door.

 

Comfort is always the best choice

The perfect couch is something that you can sink down into after a long day and unwind. A safe place where you can make memories with your family and a place where you can put your feet up and be yourself.

Comfort should always be your main priority when choosing your couch. Your couch should be your second bed, your home within a home, it should be so comfortable that you find yourself wanting to fall asleep on it. There is nothing as satisfying as sitting back in a recliner, catching up on your favourite book or tv series,calling a friend or digging into that ice-cream you’ve been dreaming of all day! No matter your preference, comfort should be the answer.

Statement Styling

You have swiped right on your dream couch, now it’s time to make it the talk of the town. Vibrant cushions and velvety throws are always a great choice when you are ready to make a styling statement. If you have decided to go a more neutral road with your couch choice, then you can spice it up with colourful cushions or even a statement throw. If it makes you smile, the answer is yes!
