If you're in the market for a new sofa, then you probably already know how difficult it can be to find one that meets all of your needs. With so much variety to choose from in the Singapore market, how do you know which sofa is right for your home? There are many decisions to be made when it comes to buying a sofa. After all, this is no small purchase and will be an investment that can last many years to come. In order to make this process easier, we've put together a guide that covers everything from sofa size to fabric type.

What to Look for in a Sofa

1. Size

When you're buying a sofa, the first thing you need to consider is the size of your room and how much space you have available for your sofa placement. We’ve previously covered the importance of having your ideal measurements at hand when buying furniture for your abode and your sofa is no exception. As such, it’s first and foremost important to measure out where you want to place the sofa in your space to avoid buying one that is too big or small for its designated area. Depending on how many people will be using it on a daily basis, you can then look for the right size that accommodates your family’s needs.

If you don't have enough space, then it's best to go with a smaller sofa that will fit in your living room without making your space feel cramped.

As sofas typically come in the standard 1-seater to 4-seater options, consider adding a Chesterfield armchair if you require additional seating space at times. They are perfect for adding extra seating when needed but also work well as standalone pieces when guests come over and need somewhere to sit down and relax. Besides the living room, you can also add an armchair in any empty corners of other rooms as an accent piece.

2. Materials

Additionally, think about what you'll use the sofa for, such as watching TV, reading, or just lounging around. This will determine the type of sofa material you should go for. Sofas usually come in a variety of materials such as fabric and leather. While fabric sofas are a great way to add texture to your living spaces, full leather sofas are also worth considering for those looking to add a luxurious and sophisticated touch to their home.

On top of that, to enhance the modern appeal of your personal sanctuary, designer sofas are highly sought-after by many homeowners in Singapore. With the occasional leather care and maintenance, these pieces can take comfort to the next level while standing the test of time.

With Chesterfield sofas, you can rest assured they are durable, soft, and highly customisable in terms of colour and style - whether fabric or leather sofa. With that in mind, depending on your desired price point and durability, you can narrow down your top picks from the range of sofa styles.

3. Style

After taking into account your preferred sofa seater and material, it’s now time to consider your style preferences. When looking at sofas, there are many different styles from traditional sofas with cushions to modern leather sofas with sleek lines and no armrests. It all depends on what style suits your personal taste best.

Most importantly, opt for a shade that matches or contrasts with the other colours in your home. Ultimately, you’ll want this important piece of furniture to work with the rest of your home decor and furnishings.
