Before choosing your couch, you should measure the space you want to put it in as well as your doorway. The last thing you want is to find your perfect couch and it won’t even fit through the door. We recommend you measure your space and doorway before visiting our store so that you know exactly which couches to look at and which ones you don’t need to waste your time on. Many couches have been returned to our store because they couldn’t fit through the customer’s door. Don’t make the mistake of others and be prepared with the right measurements before visiting our furniture store.

As a feature that makes couches more expensive, you want to make sure there are no flaws in the way it operates before you commit to it. You want this investment to work best with you and last for a long time. That is why we recommend you repeatedly test the operating mechanisms of recliners and sleepers for any flaws.

The structure and comfort of your couch are important. Couch arms are used as much as the cushions whether it’s for an armrest, pillow, or jungle gym for children. When you are browsing our collection of couches, we recommend that you fully test out the arms to ensure they can withstand the use they will receive in your home. If you plan to take many naps on the couch or have children that see the furniture as a source of adventure, you want to make sure that all parts of the couch are solid and won’t break under a lot of stress. Everyone wants their furniture to last for years to come, so don’t forget the second most used part of the couch when you are buying your next sofa.
