If you’re unsure which sofa is best for your space, there are a few things to consider that might help you narrow down your options. First, it’s important to consider the size of your space to ensure your chosen sofa can fit, and then you can think about which design, colour, and style works best with the rest of your interior. It’s all about finding a balance of practicality and aesthetics.

Start by measuring your room to ensure the sofa fits proportionally and allows for comfortable movement. If you’re unsure how to measure for a sofa, our Furniture Measuring Guide provides step-by-step instructions to help you get accurate measurements.

Once you’ve ensured your sofa can fit in your space, consider the design, and colour scheme of your interior. Opt for a sofa that complements your existing décor, whether it matches for a cohesive look or contrasts for added visual interest. Our Idris range offers a variety of designs, from simplistic plains to bolder prints, ensuring there's something to suit every style. To help tie everything together, go for a matching armchair or think about incorporating sofa cushions and throws into your seating arrangement. For helpful tips and tricks, take a look at our guides on How to Arrange Sofa Cushions and How to Match Cushions to Your Sofa.

Ultimately, the best sofa is one that not only fits your space but also reflects your personal style and enhances the overall ambience of your home.
