Color. Be sure to find a color that fits and compliments your room. Sofas come in a great variety of colors and patterns and you should choose very wisely. You will most probably not find a perfect match for the material of your other furniture, but they should coordinate and look good together. When choosing a color for you sofa, think practical. Your new couch could look disastrous after a few months if you chose a white sofa and your little one wipes his chocolate fingers on it or your puppy jumps on it with muddy paws. Black or very dark colors are not recommended if you have animals living on the couch and leaving their hair behind. So, think about who and what the sofa will be used for before choosing a color.
Seating. If you buy a microfiber sofa for your home and you want it for the comfort of yourself and your family, look for a two or three seater. If you need more seats, you might consider a microfiber sectional sofa instead, seating many people at once.
Fitting into Your Home. The most important factor to take into consideration is the size of the sofa and the space you have available for it in your living room or the area where it would be standing, especially the width and the depth. Start by measuring the room and remember to also measure the doorframes and staircases your sofa should fit through when you bring your sofa home.
Leather Sofas. Most people automatically gravitate towards a leather sofa when they are concerned about ease of cleaning. Leather sofas are usually easy to clean when it comes to wiping up spills and can be kept looking new by treating the leather with a leather conditioner on a regular basis. While a leather sofa is a good option for those who expect the occasional spill, those with small children or pets may be better off with a washable microfiber sofa fabric, since leather can be easily punctured by claws and playing children, and pets can leave odors on leather sofa fabric. However, if you order your leather sofa through a company that offers replacement leather sofa fabrics, this becomes a non-issue.
Multi Pillow Back or Scatter Back corner sofas. Multi Pillow Back sofas, also called Scatter Back sofas, have more back pillows than seat pillows. These sofas tend to sit softly and are often deeper than other designs. The back pillows can be arranged to accommodate people of varying heights. The pillows are tossed randomly across the back for a more casual look. Other choices of a primarily decorative nature include the base and arm designs. Base treatments include skirted, upholstered leg, plinth base and bun feet.
When purchasing a sofa for your home, there is more to fabric selection than simply picking a color and pattern that matches your decor, or a texture that your family is sure to find cozy and comfortable. You should also consider the difficulty in cleaning the sofa fabric you choose. While most sofas can be chemically treated for stain resistance, that may not be enough to keep your sofa looking clean and new after years - or even just months - of regular use. And this is particularly true if you share your home with children or pets. The three obvious choices for a sofa that allows for easy cleaning are microfiber sofas, leather sofas and sofas with machine washable fabrics.
