LONDON, August 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
To celebrate the launch of a new flagship store at the Lakeside Retail Park in Thurrock, CSL has today released their top tips for finding the perfect sofa for your home.
Whether you're planning to visit one of CSL's friendly nationwide stores, order online or browse sofas on the move with the new CSL App, firstly take a look at our quick sofa buying guide to make sure you'll be sitting pretty on your new furniture.
Before you start sofa shopping, you need to work out the exact size of your living space and how many people may be sitting at one time. Most large sofas will seat three adults comfortably, whilst a smaller sofa may only be suitable for two people. It's also important to work out the safe distance from a sofa to a radiator to prevent the risk of fire. You should also gauge whether a new sofa will fit through a tight doorway or space.
If you're short on space or have low ceilings, consider choosing a sofa with a low back to create the illusion of more room. Modular sofas are also a great flexible option for open-plan rooms or smaller spaces.
Leather or fabric has become one of the biggest dilemmas when it comes to buying a sofa. Plain leather sofas are a fantastic way to add a contemporary feel to a home, whilst fabric furniture offers a greater range of colours and patterns. A CSL leather sofa is a great choice if you would like your furniture to age over time, becoming part of the family as the years go by. A fabric sofa with washable loose covers, on the other hand, is perfect for anyone with young children or pets.
The filling of a sofa determines its level of support and appearance. Foam-filled sofas offer a structured look and provide firm support for anyone with limited mobility. Fibre upholstery offers a more relaxed finish with a softer sit, whilst feather-filled upholstery needs to be plumped up regularly, but ideal for anyone who loves to curl up on the sofa for hours on end. And CSL's first-ever Lifetime Guarantee now provides peace of mind that your sofa's spring and framework systems will be protected for years to come.
