How to choose a couch

When you are out shopping for new furniture, nothing is as hard to find as a new couch. There are virtually no end to the possibilities that you have in front of you in stores like the Ikia furniture store. In most homes, the couch is the natural gathering point. The whole family get together in the couch for TV-nights, talking and a lot of people even eat many of their meals in their couch. Needless to say, the choice of couch is an important one.

When choosing a couch you have to consider a lot of different factors, such as shape, color, comfort and so on. These are all important factors that we will discuss later, but the first thing you need to ask yourself is of course if you can actually get the couch in the front door of your house. If that is a problem, the couch is useless. Measure you door, and ask someone at the Ikia furniture store for the dimensions of the couch.

The next thing you need to consider is how many people is going to use the couch. If you buy a couch that is too small for everyone to fit in, you are going to have a problem sooner or later. Which room you plan on placing the couch in is also a vital part of choosing a couch. If the room is a low traffic room like a study or something similar, you might do with something small, but if you plan to putt he couch in your living room a bigger couch is the way to go.

The material is also an important aspect of choosing a couch. If you want a durable and easy to clean couch you should go for a couch in either microfiber or leather. These couches are especially good if you have children.

Cotton materials is superb if you want a lot of colors and other decorative details. They are not as durable as leather or microfiber couches, but if you don't have children they will do just fine.

Another thing that you should at least consider, is the use of eco friendly furniture. Couches made from either recycled materials or materials that doesn’t harm the environment is pretty easy to get these days and is a good place to start an eco friendly future.

If you are in need for some extra beds, a couch which converts into a bed might be your first choice. The newer models of these look great and really doesn’t scream low quality like they did a few years ago. They are comfortable both as a bed and as a couch. Take into account that these are usually a bit more expensive than a regular couch with the same size.
