Sofas Buying Guide

Picking the right sofa

Whether you're replacing a sofa or getting a sofa for your new home, we can help. It's a big purchase — and you'll want to consider all the details before you buy. Here are a few things to consider if you're in the market for a new couch.

Make sure to measure

Before you choose a sofa, you'll need to think about the size of your room. Here's how to size things up before you buy.

Plan your room's arrangement

Before you start the sofa search, think about the room you'll be putting it in. Is it going in your living room? Or will it be in your finished basement? Visualize where you think the sofa will go and make sure it works with your other furniture. If you can't figure it out, try sketching the furniture layout. This will help you finalize the best place for your new sofa.

Measure the room

After you have a general idea of where you want the sofa to go, measure the spot. Make sure you measure how wide and how deep the couch can be. Then, compare these measurements with the product dimensions on our website or in our stores.

Sectional or sofa set?

We offer sofa sets as well as sectionals for your living room. Each has its own benefits, so you'll need to go with the one that works best for your lifestyle and your home.

sectionals furniture


A sectional is a couch that makes an "L" shape and can either be used in the corner of your living room or out in the open. When used in the open, a sectional does a great job of dividing up open floor plans. In more traditional living rooms, placing them in the corner can save space and simplify your furniture layout.

  • Lots of seating
  • Fits well in corners
  • Break up large rooms

reclining sofa lifestyle


Reclining sofas generally have a bit more padding and comfort features that a standard sofa — especially with the added ability to recline. These are great for watching movies with the family or watching the big game with friends. They do tend to be more traditional in styling and take up a bit more space in your living room. If you are considering a reclining purchase, make sure there’s room for the chair to recline! One should keep 6-8 inches from the wall to the back of the chair.
