Is it time for a new sofa? But, what style should you go for? What shape should you choose? All of these questions need to be answered before you purchase your new sofa.

Once you’ve decided on the material and style you’d like, we recommend measuring your living room before visiting a store or browsing online. Once you know how much space you have to work with, we can offer you much better advice on choosing the right sized sofa for your home.

Here is some useful advice on how to choose the right size for your home:

Three seater sofas

The three seater sofa has been the go to option for households for decades, as their size means they fit in most living rooms. Three seater sofas usually measure between 200cm and 230cm in width, and we advise checking the measurements of each sofa against the size of your living room before purchasing. The full measurements of each sofa can be found on our website.

Two seater sofas

Two seater sofas offer many of the same features of a three seater, except for the obvious – they have one less seat. If you struggle for space in your home, this compact option can be work wonders. Two seater sofas range between 140cm and 190cm in width meaning you are likely a size to suit even the most compact of spaces.

Corner sofas

Corner sofas offer two very different solutions, in that they work in both large and small living rooms. For larger living rooms, a corner sofa can be paired with a two or three seater sofa (as seen below). In smaller spaces, a corner sofa, a chair and a footstool may be more of an appropriate option. When measuring for a corner sofa, be sure to measure the length and the width carefully, and check whether you need a left hand facing or right hand facing sofa. (Click here for more information)

Curve sofas

Curve sofas are a relative newcomer to the world of sofas, making for a stylish mid-way option between a three seater and a corner sofa. Curve sofas generally come in a four seater option, and it’s important to measure both the width, the depth and the space between the arms and your walls to ensure it will fit in your home.
