Are you sitting comfortably?

Are you sitting comfortably?

A sofa is arguably one of the most important pieces of furniture for your home. It's not only a place we can sit, unwind, watch films, cuddle, and sometimes even sleep but it's also a style statement! So it’s important that your sofa is right for you.

In terms of looks, it can vary from your classic cottagey sofa in a traditional fabric, turned legs and brass castors, to a sleek modern suite with clean lines and chrome feet.

Getting the right sofa size is key, as it can compliment greatly the space you have and even lack of space you have! Sofas generally come in 3 or 4 sizes including loveseats, armchairs and smaller accent chairs (also available for those tighter spaces!) A hugely popular option are corner sofas, some of which can be readjusted to suit and fit any room shape or size.

Choosing colours and fabrics can often be the most daunting aspect of a sofa purchase. Maybe you want to create a statement in your room with bold colours and geometric patterns, or keep things fresh and simple with grey tones which are still so popular. Not to worry! With our range of fabric books we can help narrow down all the choices to find the perfect sofa for you. 

Our in store experts will be more than happy to help you choose and if you're stumped over what fabric to go for we can order free samples to your house to help you decide!

Comfort is another big thing to think about. Will your sofa serve purely as a thing of beauty or as something to sink into and have an afternoon snooze on? Ask yourself what your sofa needs to do for you. Is it long enough to lie on? Is it supportive enough for your bad back? Try everything properly and see what works best for you. Just try not to fall asleep in our showroom!

While you're trying out our sofas you can keep your car in our free car park round the back of our store. So you can relax and not worry about running out of time. We also offer a Reward Card scheme where you can earn points when you spend with us. If you've forgotten your mask don't worry, for a pound donation in our charity box you can buy one meaning you can continue your shop protecting yourself and us. Or buy one of our funky 'Dock & Bay' face masks!

Don’t forget, Barretts offer a free, no obligation access check service for sofas (as well as dining furniture, bedroom furniture and rugs). This means we can bring an item of furniture from our showroom, and position it in your room so you can be 100% sure before your purchase!
