While many people may deliberate about buying a new car, they often rush into buying a lounge suite. However, both of these items are long term purchases and need to be carefully considered. Although it is tempting to impulse buy, here are five factors you should consider when making your purchase decision.
Perhaps the most important consideration of modular lounges is the quality. After all, if you buy a substandard item, you are likely to find yourself shopping again in no time at all. Although the initial cost is usually an important factor, it is a good idea to take a long term value approach. While a $3,000 modular sofa may seem like a great deal, if it only lasts three years, it is nowhere near as good value as the $5,000 model that will last ten years.
Your Preferred Style:
This is another factor that can affect the longevity of your new leather modular lounge. There are modular lounges available in a variety of styles and designs from traditional to contemporary. Although your new lounge should work with your existing furniture, it also needs to stand the test of time alone. If you are thinking of upgrading your entire room in the coming years, your new lounge needs to complement both styles.
The Comfort Level:
While there are some excellent sofas and lounges around that look fantastic, they are not always the most comfortable. Therefore, you need to ensure that you find the piece offers the comfort level you prefer and need. If you are going to be sat for prolonged periods reading or watching tv, does it offer adequate support? Do you like to curl up and watch a movie in the evening? Can you do this comfortably on this lounge?
One of the great features of a modular lounge is that you can add new sections later if you need them. This removes much of the uncertainty about whether you will need to upgrade later if your needs change. However, you will still need to take your basic measurements and ensure that the lounge can comfortably fit in your room. Some lounge models are far deeper compared to others. Don’t assume that the basic size of the lounge will be “roughly” the same. Take measurements and confirm that the sizing is correct for your home.
Choice of Colour:
Finally, you need to consider colour. Many consumers prefer to keep their lounge neutral. This is a sensible approach as you can add splashes of colour with accessories such as cushions or on your walls. However, there are some bold colour choices around that can create a striking look. When choosing a colour, don’t just consider the current trends but think about how well it date. The difficulty with being bang on trend is that you can find yourself out of fashion in only a few months.
