Corner lounge suites have become a popular option in recent years, and this has led to a massive choice in stores and online. Buying corner lounges are an investment in your home, so before you make a purchase decision, you need to follow these golden rules.
Trying Before Buying
Although it is possible to buy online and get a fantastic corner lounge, where possible trying before buying is preferable. Average sofas have seat depths of 60 centimetres or more, which provides lots of room to get comfortable. However, the depths of corner lounges can vary greatly, so you need to know that you’ll have plenty of room to tuck your legs under you or stretch out. You will also need to consider the seat height. Most models offer between 45 and 50 centimetres, but again, this will depend on your family’s needs. If it is not possible to try a lounge before you buy, use your current sofa as a guideline to determine your preferences.
Always Invest in Good Frames
Although the fabric and design are the characteristics we see immediately, these factors pale in comparison to choosing a good frame. Regardless of the style and fabric of lounge you choose, if your chosen model has a poor frame, it is not likely to last. Therefore, it is essential to spend as much as affordable on a good quality frame. This will see you comfortable through years of lounging. Before making a purchase decision, take note of any guarantees or manufacturer assurances, so you can have confidence in the quality of the frame.
Check Under the Surface
Just like the frame, it is essential to check what filling has been used on any corner lounges. The filling inside your lounge is just as important as the outer fabric. Feather cushions provide a high comfort level but will require plumping regularly. Fibre or foam fillings are more allergy friendly but can flatten or lose shape over time.
Focus on the Fabric
Regardless of whether you’re looking for a bold pattern and colour or a more neutral look, your choice of fabric will have a massive impact on your room. Don’t just be dazzled by a particular pattern or colour, look for a fabric that will fit with your overall scheme. Bear in mind that natural materials are vulnerable to fading in strong sunlight, so if your new lounge will be near windows, it may be better to opt for a synthetic fabric. If you have a car or dog, or have a busy family home, you’ll need a fabric that is easy to clean. If you have concerns about keeping your new lounge looking great, look for models with loose covers that can be removed for washing and cleaning.
Measure, Measure and Measure Some More
Finally, don’t just rely on one set of measurements, as you need to be sure of the dimensions. Measure the available space, but also the dimensions of stairways and doors that may impede access.
