Usually, chairs are bought together with a new sofa. If the furniture sits, the cover is no longer beautiful or the time for change in the living room comes, but the good part also wants to buy individually. There are many choices and at first glance, they all look the same – cheap offers and quality products are often difficult to distinguish from the outside. These 6 tips will help you find new seats.
1. How much space is available for new seats?
First, you have to measure the space available correctly. This ensures that the new chair really fits the room, because even in a furniture store even large armchairs are usually much smaller. For example, lay out a newspaper in a floor space that will be used as a new chair. So, you can imagine better the space that is controlled later.
2. How do I recognize good quality?
Of course, optics are an important criterion when buying a chair, but the quality of a chair is usually only seen after years. Pay attention to construction, interior and cover material. If the manufacturer then offers a warranty that goes far beyond the legal guarantee period, this is a sure sign of high quality materials and good workmanship. Norwegian manufacturer, Stressless, for example, provides a ten-year guarantee for the comfortable functions of its seats, including all related components such as rotating mechanisms, steel frames and suspensions.
3. How to find an ergonomic chair?
Make sure the width and height of the seat are in accordance with your physical. The chair must be so deep that there is room for about two fingers between the seat and the back of the knee. As for petite people, 50 cm wide seats are sufficient, people should pay attention to chairs with a width of more than 60 cm. The armchair is very back-friendly if you have an adjustable backrest, neck brace, pull footwear, or a separate bench.
4. Fabric or leather – which is better?
Whether you choose for skin, synthetic fiber or natural fiber is not just a matter of taste. Children in the household who spill something from time to time or pets that distribute hair at home and furniture must be considered here. The skin is usually less sensitive, but also the cloth cover is now easier to clean. To do this, check the manufacturer’s details carefully.
5. How do I find the right chair for the sofa?
It becomes a little tricky if the newly purchased chair is to match the rest of the set. Use the color chart and fabric and leather pattern of the manufacturer to match colors as precisely as possible. If you can’t find the right color, the contrast color chosen deliberately can be an attractive alternative.
6. Buy a chair online or locally?
Of course, even if today’s online purchases are very fast and easy, the final decision for a new seat must always fall during the trial. After all, we spend an average of three to four hours a day on pillows.
