So the time has come to get a new sofa. Whether it’s because your old one is threadbare, you’re moving home or redecorating and want something to match your beautiful, new interior. Whatever the reason, take a step backwards and pause for a moment before rushing headlong into IKEA.
A good few questions to ask yourself before making this mammoth commitment are, what style do you want. Which upholstery will best suit the decor of your room. How much do you have to spend and last but by no means least, how long do you want it to last for.
It’s easy be sidelined by the advert with the stunning pink velvet sofa complete with cockapoo puppy that ‘This weekend is half price’. But nine times out of 10 this sofa will have been mass produced using cheap wood and substandard upholstery held together by staples. What you see on the advert has been recoloured, professionally lit and primped to within an inch of its life. Now picture that sofa a few years down the line after the kids have used it as a trampoline, the dogs been sick on it and Aunty Ethel has spilt her tea over the arms. I can bet you it won’t be a pretty site and you’ll be, yet again looking for a new sofa.
So bearing this in mind, isn’t it worth reassessing your budget and maybe considering a made-to-order sofa?
These days made-to-order is no longer just for the Lord of the Manor but also for us mere mortals. The cost of made-to-order furniture has dropped exponentially over the last few years and now there is no reason why it cannot be added to your search. Especially considering the above scenario.
