1. MEASURE YOUR SPACE AND CHECK THE ACCESS

First of all, let’s get the tape measure out and be certain that the sofa’s dimensions will suit your space. Often enough, many people forget this essential step, only to discover at time of delivery that the piece won’t fit. The easiest way to check the amount of floor space needed is by marking the area out on the floor where the furniture will sit. This can be done by either using masking tape or a newspaper template. Also be sure to measure your entryways including doors, hallways, and stairways. Consider all of the paths your furniture can take to arrive at its destination.

2. SELECT A QUALITY FRAME

With sofas, quality goes beyond what they look like. It is indeed the frame that determines longevity and if the piece will retain its shape after years of use. The best frames are made using kiln-dried hardwood, which removes all moisture and improves stability. Joints must be screwed and glued for extra support and strength.

3. CUSHION FILLING

For a very luxurious feel and look it is important to choose a lavish filling, that will increase comfort levels and provide a good seating experience. Down used in combination with other materials proves to be one of the best options. Pads made out of a Dacron polyester fibre and feather and down are wrapped around high-density foam to help retain the shape.
