The first question you want to ask is: Where is your Australia sofa going to go? In Australia, it is not uncommon to have the couch outside, under a canopy. Outdoor furniture is very common in Australia as the weather is usually quite sunny. If you are going to have a couch outside then it is recommended to buy a fabric sofa over a leather sofa. A leather sofa would become very hot and sweaty in summer, compared to a fabric sofa. If the couch is going indoors then you need to think about the size of the room it is going into. A large room will preferably need a chair and two sofas. In a smaller room, a modular chair might be the better option. For quite a square room, usually two settees of the same size work quite well. For a more narrow room, one long settee and two armchairs work quite well. The armchairs do not necessarily have to match, but should suit the shape of the sofa.
The second question you should ask is: how will your Australia sofa be used? People have preference of how they spend their free time: some people prefer to curl up and watch movies and some people prefer to read books. If there are people in the household who enjoy stretching out to watch TV, then it is recommended to buy a couch that has plenty of room. Maybe a chaise or ottoman would suit this household. If you entertain guests often, you should consider investing in a sofa bed so guests can sleep over.
The third question you should ask is: how much space is there? This is probably one of the most important questions to ask. You should measure the area the settee will go in and check with the dimensions of your chosen settee prior to buying. You should also measure doorways, to ensure the new couch will fit into your house. If you buy an online sofa, it is possible to find all the dimensions on the Internet. Buying an online sofa is usually recommended as they are generally much better value for money. Browsing for your online sofa is usually much less effort than walking around buying show rooms.
The couch should match the rest of the room. A fabric sofa can usually be customised to suit the colours of the room, compared with a leather sofa. It is even possible to purchase readymade curtains to match the fabric of your chair.
