It could be a 3 seater sofa, a 2 seater sofa, a modern sofa or a contemporary sofa, or even a mid century sofa. Since it fits perfect in your living room set and mainly if it feels perfect for you, doesn’t really matter the style of your lounge sofa.

1. Measure up

One of the most basic and practical pieces of advice we give people when buying a new lounge sofa, is to measure the size of your living room.  You need to make sure your new sofa will fit into the space without over crowding, to create the look and comfort you want.

2. Ease of Access

Not only do you need to measure your living room, you need to make sure your lounge sofa can be delivered to your home and can fit up stairs, in hallways and through doors. We’d hate for you to choose the lounge sofa of your dreams, only to realise not only is it too big for your lounge room, it can’t even get there in the first place.

3. Style – create the look you love

6 Tips for choosing the perfect

Consider not only the lounge sofa design you like but also what style suits your home. You may love a funky modern sofa but if your home is traditional in style and you’re not yet ready to redecorate, then you need to choose a lounge sofa that suits your existing interior.  Consider classic, contemporary, mide century or modern styles.

4. Size – 2 seater, 3 seater or modular, which one’s for me?

These days, sofas come in a variety of shapes and sizes.  If you have a big family and do lots of home entertaining with friends or enjoy group movie nights, then a modular sofa is a great choice.  If you are a couple living in an inner-city apartment and are hardly ever home, then a neat two seater sofa may be all you need.  Lifestyle is just as important as looks.

5. Fabric – plain, textured, patterned or striped?

After you’ve chosen your lounge sofa style and size, it’s time to pick your fabric. Again, consider your lifestyle, for example, if you are a family with young children, you may go for a darker colour in a hardwearing textured weave that won’t easily show the dirt and can withstand wear and tear.  Have fun with fabrics – choose a pattern, a colour, a texture and then throw in some co-ordinating cushions or an ottoman to finish off the whole look.

6. Longevity – it’s not just about looks

Your sofa is a stand-out furniture item that can affect the whole look of your room. Investing in a good quality sofa will offer you years of comfort and hide day-to-day wear and tear. Seating support is a must have to ensure even weight distribution and avoid any seat sagging.


You have the tips, you take note of it, so you are now able to choose the perfect lounge sofa for your lazy living room.
