Choose the perfect sofa for your needs

Sofas and armchairs are among the most used – and most expensive – pieces in the living room so make sure you choose a fabric and colour that’s right for you

Measure the space you’ll use for seating, as well as any openings they’ll need to squeeze through, so you don’t get stuck getting them in.

While a three-seater and armchair suits most homes, you may prefer a couple of compact two-seaters, and a sofabed is a good idea if you have regular guests.

Families with young children should consider dark fabrics and removable, machine washable covers to quickly get rid of mess and stains. Brightly coloured materials can go out of fashion quickly so stick to classic shades or a traditional stripe design.
