How to buy a sofa
While spending more time at home we are all looking at our homes and sitting rooms differently and are looking for change.
When it comes to updating your sofa you not only want the correct colour and style you also want it to last and of course to be value for money. When we opened our doors over 20 years ago we sold sofas to customers who are only just returning to buy a new one and it is not because their sofa has worn out, it’s because they want a change!
So how to do you start to plan for your new sofa, chair, corner group? Firstly look at the space you have, if you live in a modern, open plan home you may wish to create areas in which you can cook, relax, dine, work or play. Sofas can double up as room dividers and create complete flexibility to any living space. Think about where you TV and fire source are and what you wish to look at – the garden maybe? Once you have made these initial decisions it’s time to think about the style and fabric of your sofa. Traditional sofas work well in traditional homes, brands such as Parker Knoll and GPlan offer a wide variety of two and three seater sofas and are available in many fabric and leather options. If your look is more contemporary you may wish to consider a corner or modular sofa. These are less easy to move around as, by nature, they fit into a corner of your home but they offer much more flexibility with seating options – perfect for a large family. Again, they are available in a wide variety of fabric, leather and colour options, SITS have an extensive range of corner sofas and covering choices.
You may also wish to make your sofa buying decision thinking about your pets, you may need a sofa covered in a fabric, which is easy to clean and will not tear or scratch. We can help by treating your sofa with a protective spray, which carries a guarantee against spills and marks – offering you peace of mind.
At Russell Francis we have a very extensive range of modern and traditional 2 and 3 seater sofas as well as corner sofas with matching chairs and love seats (large chairs which can sit 2 children or allow 1 person to relax).
