5 Tips for buying a good couch

Do you need a new couch? Browsing through couches for sale can be a daunting task. However once you know what to look for, it is easy to find a practical and stylish couch. You can review different home décor ideas to find inspiration for creating a stylish design in your lounge. Although choosing a couch will ultimately depend on your personal preferences, there are other factors that you will need to take into account.


Here are some tips for buying a good couch:

1. Inspect the frame

Buying a couch is a big investment, so it is important that you choose one which is well designed. If the couch has a sturdy frame, it is likely that it will last longer. Cheaper wood such as pine may save you money in the short run, but it is not a good long term investment. Durable wood such as ash will last longer.


2. Inquire about the joinery

It is advisable to choose a couch which has been solidly built. Strong joinery includes wooden dowels and corner blocks. Other good options are screws and brackets. If the couch is solely joined by materials such as staples and nails, it is not one of the better couches for sale.


3. Check out the springs

Sit down on the couch and test out its springs. The couch should support your weight firmly. Feel the springs to check that they are close together. If the couch is made from mesh, it is likely that it will be uncomfortable to sit on.


4. Look for quality fillings

The couch’s filling will affect its durability as well as how much effort it takes to keep it clean. Couches which are filled with Polyurethane are affordable and low maintenance. High-resilient foam costs more, but it offers both comfort and durability. If you choose down-polyfibre fillings, it will cost you less, but it will lose its shape after a shorter period than more expensive fillings.


5. Choose tough materials

The wear and tear on couches is a significant consideration as they are meant for everyday use. Choose a tough material such as synthetic microfiber to reduce the damage to your couch from everyday use.
