Pick the perfect sofa

We’ll help you make the right choice when looking for the best seat in the house

Buying a new sofa is a major investment that’s going to be used by all the family for many years, so you’ve got to get it right. Not only will you be opting for good looks, comfort and price, but you’ll also need to be considering the space and size of your room too. You’ll be splashing out a fair amount of cash so don’t be lured just by looks. Make sure the joints are strong, the springs don’t squeak and cushions are plump and supportive. We’ve done the homework, so all you need to do is plan your outing to test out your favourite models.

FILLINGS GOOD

Cushions can be made with various fillings, including foam, polyester fibre and goose and duck feathers. Some sort of combination is often used for maximum comfort at minimum cost. This super stylish sofa has fibre-filled back cushions for comfort and foam-filled seat cushions to help keep their shape. Ask about warranties, exchange and refund policies

Top tip!

Lisa Broad, Head of Buying Upholstery at Harveys, says: ‘Selecting the perfect style to match your lifestyle and décor is an important step in choosing the right sofa. Analyse the style of the property, consider whether it’s a period home or a contemporary modern property. Decide whether you’re trying to match or contrast the existing style or go one step bolder and opt for a contemporary classic style.’

About Your Home Magazine

Now that the nights are long and there’s a definite nip in the air, it’s time to make sure your home is as comfy and cosy as it can be, as we’ll be spending a lot more time indoors over the next few months. Our trend alert on p.20 this month is inspired by misty moors and the rich colours are perfect for giving your home a warm and welcoming feel. And if you’re thinking of getting a new sofa before your family and friends arrive for Christmas, then make sure you read our expert guide on p.36 for all the information and inspiration you need to pick your perfect settee. We also take a look at the latest ovens which are big on style and features, but kind to your pocket – ideal for cooking your Christmas dinner (p.48). If you’re thinking of moving home in the New Year, then turn to p.106 to find out how to discover where the latest property hotspots are in your area. Bonfire night is a great excuse to have a get-together before we all get too busy in the run-up to the festive season. On p.100 we’ve got some fantastic recipe ideas for you to try at your fireworks party – I particularly love the spectacular bonfire cake, it’s a real showstopper that will definitely ‘wow’ your guests! As always we’ve got some stunning makeovers, including kitchen diner revamps packed with clever ideas (p.24), plus some gorgeous reader homes that I know you’ll find inspiring (p.73).
