10 Steps on How to Choose the Perfect Sofa for Your Living Space

  1. Measure the size of your room
  2. Measure the size of all openings and doorways to get into that room
  3. Bring your measurements to Smitty’s staff. They will create a room plan to find the best size sofa for your room and your family’s needs.
  4. Smitty’s can arrange for a free check measure if there is any doubt whether the sofa you  fall in love with will fit through your doors and halls.
  5. Think about how you use your sofa – do you sit formally with your feet on the ground or do you lay out and lounge? Don’t be shy - Make sure you try out any potential sofa the same way you would use it at home.
  6. Think about your style of the room – rounded arms are more casual, track arms are more contemporary.
  7. Think about your budget and time of investment – find a manufacturer that matches the quality and price point that meets your budget. There are more options then you can imagine.
  8. Take into account your family’s lifestyle and match the quality and type of fabric to your family’s needs. Canadian manufacturer’s offer a wide variety of choices to meet your needs.
  9. Sight lines are an important consideration when choosing the height of your sofa.
  10. Sectionals are not just for larger rooms. Sometimes a sectional is perfect to maximize the space in small rooms. Make sure you discuss this option with your sales consultant.
