A sofa is the focal point of your living room; therefore, you want to make sure you get the right one. It can be a very daunting task to go to a furniture store such as TJ Hughes and pick one out. However, if you go armed with some know-how you will make the right choice.
Questions to Ask Yourself before You Hit the Stores:
- What is your budget? Since a sofa can make or break your space you do not want to scrimp in this particular area. It is best viewed as an investment. If you take care of your sofa it will last you a lifetime.
- How will you use your sofa? This may seem like an obvious question, but you want to find one that is suitable for the room it will be in. Will kids are jumping around on it in the den, or will it be used for more formal occasions in the living room?
- How do you want to feel when you sit on the sofa? Will you be a couch potato or want to feel regal sipping your afternoon tea?
- How much space do you have for the sofa? Will you want end tables on either side? Make sure to take the measurements of the space to the store with you.
- Once you have asked yourself these questions, as well as, know the answers you can begin to think about the style of the sofa you want.

If you got to the store and see something you like, but don’t like the color remember that sofas are offered in a variety of fabrics and colors. The most important thing is to have all the information you need to make an informed decision. You don’t want to buy something you don’t like a month later, or something your significant other hated from the first moment and didn’t want to say anything.
