One of the more exciting things to do when moving into a new home is furniture shopping. There are many different types of couches and sofas which can make shopping for a sofa a daunting task. With having to make the decision between a sectional sofa, lawson style sofa or that adorable love seat, you may feel exhausted after your first trip to the store.
One thing I love to do is to look through different furniture store catalogs, or better yet, go to the many stores available so you can see which style draws your attention the most. This is the exact reason why my Ikea trips turn into adventures that are hours long.
Also, there is no better way to confirm your choice than to sit on your future couch and make sure it is as comfortable as you imagined. The worse feeling is going to sit on a sofa that looks incredibly soft, only to bruise your tailbone when it feels like you just plopped down on cement.
