Sofa is one of the most important assets you are likely to invest for your home. It delivers an irreplaceable statement in your living room. It is where you lounge, read, enjoy your cup of red tea, catch up with family and friends, watch your Netflix drama, conquer your Playstation games and even where you likely to take a powerful nap on. Thus, you should not only choose a sofa that matches your living space but also one that matches your daily lifestyle.
Sofas with legs are easier to access and maintain, as one does not need to stoop their body low to sit in it. They are raised well above the floor which requires less cleaning and overall maintenance to take care of since they do not collect as much dust and dirt. For individuals who prefer leaning and lounging while watching films, sofa with arms and low back are better for you while sofas with minimal or no arms are more suitable for individuals sitting in etiquette entertaining guests with a coffee table in front.
When we mention cosiness, most people may think of the inner sofa cushioning, and neglect the frame of the sofa, in which the back height, seat depth and sofa dimension constitute overall comfort. Low back height and deep seat depth allow individuals to lounge and rest their heads, exuding a relaxing and informal feel. High back with average seat depth on the other hand offer greater back support and portrait formal feel. Deeper seat depth gives you a larger sofa which can be your perfect soul mate when you need a power nap in the living space. Based on our interior designer’s advice, the optimal sofa dimension should have seat depth between 600mm-700mm and seat height of 400-450mm.
