There are several determining factors that you will need to consider before you finally make a purchase. And in this post we are sharing with you the best 7 tips to buy the right sofa set for your living room.

1. Your Budget
First things first, the primary factor on which your decision of buying a sofa will depend is your budget. Yes, you will have to set your budget before you actually buy your sofa. Setting a budget in advance will help you make the best purchase that too in your pocket. The prices of sofa sets may vary from INR 10K to INR 50K, it can even go beyond that.
2. Your Requirement
There are myriads of sofa designs available in the market. Probably you will like most of them, but only liking won’t help you in your decision. You will have to see whether the sofa set that you are buying fits into your requirement or not. For instance, if you live in a rented house, then surely you will have to see for a sturdy piece that you can move from one location to another location easily. Besides, in a rented house you always want to have minimal furniture. So definitely you would want to buy a sofa cum bed that you can use as a sofa in the day time and as a bed when some guests will visit you.
On the other hand, if yours is a big bungalow, then you can opt for any design of your choice. Likewise, you will have to figure out your requirements before buying the sofa.
3. The Size
Next important factor before you choose your sofa set is – the size of the sofa. The size will primarily depend on the size and dimensions of your living room. Of course, you cannot go for a bigger sofa set when you have a small living room. Likewise, in case you have a bigger hall, you are privileged to choose any size of your choice. In addition to this, you also need to see whether the sofa will accommodate all your family members or not.
Pro Tip: Your sofa size should not be too big in case your hall is small, as it makes the space look even smaller or compact.
4. The Color
The design of your sofa set will also matter. You cannot buy a sofa because it looks beautiful, you may regret your decision later. While you choose your sofa it is essential that you choose the one that goes well with your living room’s décor. For instance, if the color theme of your living room is coffee brown, then surely you should go for a sofa that matches well with the color scheme of your living room. And if you are looking for some contrasting colors, then brown and yellow go well. You can even try out something in blue, it looks wonderful. Whatever color you go with, make sure it goes well with the entire theme and décor of your living room. Choosing the right color will simply make the whole look of your living room eye-catching.
5. The Style
Another important aspect is the style or design of your sofa set. There will be many styles available in the market, but you have to choose the one that fits your requirement and matches well with your décor. For instance, L-shape sofas go well with the halls thinner in breadth and longer in length. Or if yours is a small room, then loveseats will make for a perfect choice.
6. The Material
The material of the sofa will also determine your purchase. It is important that you decide the material in advance. A sofa can be made of any material from wood to steel, leather to fabric etc. And if you choose wood, then which wood Malabar or Sheesham. Like this you will have to consider material while buying the sofa set.
Pro tips: If you live in a region which is super-hot in summers, then go for a fabric sofa. Leather will be uncomfortable in summer.
7. The Comfort
Last but not least, it may be the last point in the list but it should be one of your primary considerations. Buy a sofa set which is comfortable for you. Looks are still secondary, but you cannot compromise on the comfort. As said earlier, you will spend most of your time on your sofa. So, don’t miss to see the comfort part!
