Lets all be honest, a 2-seater sofa is a good compromise for rooms that are tight on space, although some 2-seater sofas can be longer than others, which means it is possible to have a decent kip on one if you look hard enough.
This little morsel of info is just as relevant when buying a 3-seater sofa so let the Price Detective share some tips with you. First things first, measure up at home to see what will reasonably fit into your available space and then take your tape measure with you when you go browsing as a sofa can look much smaller in the showroom than it will at home.
If you have kids or animals then look for sofas with detachable covers which can easily be put in to the washing machine once they are a bit grubby. If style is your thing then leather works well.
If you are looking for the ultimate in comfort then I would suggest a coil sprung sofa, (but as is the case these tend to be more expensive than cheaper web sprung sofas) combined with feather filled cushions. If functionality and robustness is your main concern then look for a well sprung sofa with foam or fibre filled cushions which has a bit of weight to it. PI tip...try picking one corner of the sofa up with one hand when viewing.
If you are after a traditional leather 2-seater sofa may we suggest the Clarendon Leather 2-Seater
If you need that uber cool New York loft apartment look then look no further than this Bronx Leather 2-Seater which is also available as a 2.5 seater model as well.
PriceInspector's #1 tip however is to try a few out, test them to the full and most of all, buy what makes you happy! Most of the popular coloured 2-seater sofas people look for are usually brown, black, cream as well as patterned fabric and other extravagant colours such as red, green and blue - make sure your lounge fits with these vibrant colours though!
