Buying a couch?

  • How Can I Spot Quality?

    It’s tempting to buy a couch just because you love the way it looks. But not so fast – you’ve also got to make sure you are buying furniture that will last. Metal frames are very durable and so are hardwoods like Victorian Ash and Jarrah; any of these are good options if your couch will be subject to pets or children (or adults who sometimes act like children).

    Seat cushion foam should be a high-density variety. Fabric and leather upholstery both have their pros and cons. Fabrics stain (but some couches come with washable cushion covers) but come in a wider variety of looks; leather is highly durable and easy to clean, but it is typically more expensive.

    You’re going to be doing a lot of living on your couch, so it’s worth the effort to find the right one. Consider what needs you need the couch to fulfil, such as whether you will have overnight guests or want to be able to move the sections of your couch into different arrangements. Deciding on a type of couch and a budget upfront can make your search on sites like Gumtree a little easier.

  • What Type of Couch Should I Buy?

    There is a wide range of couches available, but in general, they fit into a few categories. More traditional couches are basic and functional, and they usually won’t boast any extra features, such as reclining seats.

    Modular or sectional couches come in separate parts that are joined together to form a larger couch. A recliner will offer one or more reclining seats. Sleeper couches or sofa beds are made with foldout frames and mattresses. Nearly any couch can potentially come with extra features such as drink trays or a chaise lounge on one end.

  • So You’re Ready to Buy a Couch…

    Whether you’re furnishing your first flat or just replacing a couch that has seen better days, there are a surprising number of choices to make before whipping out your credit card and placing the order. You’ll need to find a couch that fits into your flat as well as into your budget, and if you’re careful, you should be able to find one that also fits in perfectly with your personal style.

  • What Size Couch Should I Buy?

    Especially if you are working with limited space, the size of your new couch will be one of your top considerations and may prove to be a deal breaker with many of the couches you encounter in your search. Not only does the couch need to be able to fit into the space you have, there also needs to be extra space between the couch and other nearby furniture.

    Exact measurements are vital for getting the right couch. Also measure any doorways the couch will have to go through on its way inside!
