How to choose the right sofa for your home

How to choose the right sofa for your home

At Websters Furniture, our in-house interior design team are one of the most recognised and experienced in the Brighouse and surrounding Yorkshire areas. That’s because we are one of the longest family-run furniture stores still left in the region.


Because of that, we are regularly tasked in helping our customers select the right furniture pieces for their home- with one of the most popular questions being ‘what sort of sofa should we get for our living room?’


Well you’re in luck- here’s our experienced advice on choosing the right sofa for your Yorkshire home.


1)    Test different styles and take your time – don’t make rash decisions, there are so many sofas on the market, therefore it’s important you look at different styles (e.g. do you want a two-seater or an ‘L’ shaped sofa? Or maybe just a chair!)

2)    Test different fills to see which you find comfortable – do you prefer sofas that you can fall into or do you prefer them a little firmer?

3)    Try different fabrics – this will affect the overall feel of your new sofa, you might like the look of something, but do you like how it feels? This is very important as it might shift your decision drastically!


We strongly recommend when choosing your new sofa that you come into a store like Websters to sit and try them out. This is really the only way in which you can 100% test a new sofa.
