Can you fit your Italian Leather Sofa through the door of your house? Or if you live in an apartment block. Will it fit in the lift. Or can the sofa be taken up your stairwell? Will your sofa fit in comfortably with the rest of your furniture arrangements? To get the best sofa possible, it’s important to get the size right.

Strazzia’s L-Shaped Sofas, also known as corner sofas,  bypass these potential issues as they are made up of two to three smaller-sized components, which easily fit together once in the desired space.

How can I make sure my Italian Leather Sofa is the right size?

First and foremost, measure the space that you are planning to place your new sofa. Take into account any awkward spaces or overhangs from window ledges that the sofa may have to fit around. To help visualise the space the sofa will take up, and whether it takes up too much space. Measuring and placing newspaper on the floor in the relevant area is a useful tactic.

Italian Leather Sofas for large spaces

If you have a large, open plan living room, it’s important to choose something that has a higher back like the Lady 3 Seater Sofa. This helps break up the space in the room. In addition, consider questions like: How much space do I want the sofa to take up? Are you looking to furnish with chairs too? Do you want a coffee table?  Depending on your answers to these questions, a three or four seat sofa may be most suitable. Or would a sofa with a slight L shape would be the best fit. If you’re looking for a sofa to be a focal point of the room, a rounder shaped sofa that takes slightly more space would be best.

Just as large sofas are best suited for big spaces. The right sized sofa will enhance a smaller room. For example, a large sofa in a smaller room tends to make a room look small and cramped. On the other hand, smaller sofas, like the Compact 3 Seater Sofa are designed to be smaller and can add a more spacious feel to a room. All Strazzia sofas come in a range of different sizes and configurations.
