A lounge is a major investment and, because we spend so much time and value lounges for relaxation, it is well worth choosing a sofa that meets the needs of the household. Five steps can be followed to help with the choice of a good lounge:
Pay attention to the frame
The more sturdy and robust the frame, the longer your lounge is likely to last. Some low-cost materials, including pine, are at risk of wobbling or warping after only a few years. Check that the legs are part of the frame of the lounge or attached with screws or dowels. Legs should not be attached only with glue.
Inquire about joinery
A lounge that features solid construction will have a frame that has joints connected by: single or double wooden dowels, metal screws, brackets or wooden dowels. Lounges connected only by nails, glue or staples should be avoided.
Check the springs
Take the time to feel the springs of the lounge through its upholstery. Springs should be firm and positioned close together.
Find out about fillings
Different types of fillings come at different costs. One comfortable, long-lasting foam is high-resilient foam.
Think about textiles
Choose a lounge with a fabric appropriate for use. If you have children or know the sofa will be subjected to hard wear, choose a durable fabric.
