Top 7 questions that Singaporeans have when choosing a sofa for their home
Selecting the ideal sofa for your home requires plenty of thought, especially when it will become the centrepiece of your living room. As smaller homes become more common, particularly in Singapore, owners of high-rise accommodations will have to take space constraints into consideration as well. Regardless of whether you’re wondering how to go about buying a sofa for your home for the first time or simply replacing your old one, let us help guide you through the right thought process of selecting the one that will complement your lifestyle.
1. How do I choose the right sofa size for my living room?
Always start by measuring the length of the walls. From thereon, go with the two-thirds rule, whereby the sofa should be longer than two-thirds of the length of the wall it is to be placed against. Don’t forget to account for the armrests as well. To get a better idea of the sofa dimensions, visit our showroom to try out your preferred sofa before purchasing. You should also consider how many people your sofa will need to accommodate as they come in several size options ranging from single seater sofas and 2-seater sofas that are perfect for smaller living rooms to 3-seater and 4-seater sofas that are ideal for bigger households.
2. What are the most popular upholstery materials for sofas?
As one of Singapore’s top sofa brands, Comfort Furniture houses a wide selection of upholstery materials, including genuine leather, faux leather, regular fabric, and bouclé fabric. If you’re confused about how to choose a sofa material that will stand the test of time both physically and style-wise, fret not as we’re here to help. When choosing a sofa fabric, it’s important to pick a material that best suits your lifestyle, is durable, and can deliver the comfort you need.
If you live in a place with a more humid climate like Singapore, it’s advisable to choose a sofa material that can withstand moisture and is easy to clean. It’s also crucial to consider the material’s breathability to ensure comfort during hot and humid weather. If you prefer a soft, plush material for a comfy couch that you can simply sink into, fabric upholstery such as bouclé will be your best bet. And if a timeless look is what you’re after, a leather sofa upholstered in either genuine leather or faux leather will be the perfect centrepiece for your home.
3. Can I customise the colour and fabric of my sofa?
At Comfort Furniture — you can. As one of the pioneers of customisable furniture in Singapore, many of our models are customisable, allowing our customers to flex their creativity and realise their dream home. Moreover, we also offer one-on-one consultation and are ready to customise your preferred furniture pieces based on your budget, expectations and timeline.
4. What are some space-saving sofa options for small living rooms?
Space constraints in a smaller home is a common issue faced by many modern homeowners, particularly in Singapore’s many HDB homes. To maximise your space, look for sofas with storage compartments to hide bulky items. And if you often entertain guests, or simply want the option of having a spare bed in the house, a sofa bed will be a great investment. If you have more space to spare, you can also opt for a modular or L-shaped sofa. A modular sofa is perfect for smaller living rooms as you can rearrange the modular parts or remove them whenever space is needed. While they might sound the same, there are several differences between L-shaped sofas and modular sofas, so it really boils down to preference and how much available space you have.
5. How do I clean my sofa?
Sofas are high traffic areas that are likely to get dirty, hence regular cleaning is necessary. For non-fabric sofas such as those made with genuine or faux leather, a gentle wipe with a damp cloth should be sufficient. As for how to clean fabric upholstery, we recommend vacuuming it regularly to remove dirt and dust. You can also spot-clean any stains with a mild detergent and damp cloth. If all of that sounds daunting to you, you’ll be glad to know that some of Comfort Furniture’s fabric-upholstered sofas also come with removable covers for easy cleaning.
6. Should I buy my sofa online or in store?
With convenience being a priority these days, many prefer to buy online where you can easily compare the items on sale without having to even leave your house. That’s why Comfort Furniture’s online store is so easy to use and always up-to-date with the latest products! However, if you prefer to be able to touch and feel everything in-person, you can always visit our showroom and experience our furniture for yourselves.
