Are you thinking of updating your new sofa? If so here are our top tips when searching for that new seating area…
1. Try before you buy…
The average sofa has a seat depth of at least 60cm, which gives plenty of room to manoeuvre if you have long legs, and allows you to tuck them under if you’re shorter. But seat depths do vary, so try out different styles to ensure you get good back support. There’s no right or wrong height so try before you buy to make sure it suits the whole family. Finally, check the total width, excluding armrests, if you like to stretch out. You can visit your nearest showroom by searching for it here > https://www.oakfurnitureland.co.uk/showrooms/
Get out the tape measure and make sure you’re certain of the maximum sofa dimensions that will fit, and suit, your space. Also, check the dimensions of any doors and stairways the sofa will have to pass through on delivery.
Seat cushions should be firm and resilient and fit snugly within the sofa frame. The cushions should regain their shape after you press down and let go. A cushion that stays put when you press down will be flattened in no time, end up looking unsightly and feel uncomfortable when you sit on it. Cushions that do not fit snugly will also lose their shape quickly and the edges will start looking unsightly. Oak Furniture Land include their cushions within your purchase!
