The Drawbacks of Owning a Small Sofa

Do you love coming home after a long day of work and plopping yourself down on the sofa? Could you lay there for hours (wife permitting) and watch your favorite television show while drinking a nice cold beer? Chances are pretty good that this is exactly the case. Your sofa is almost as familiar with your rear-end as a monkey is familiar with bananas. The majority of your time at home is spent on the sofa relaxing, watching television, or chatting with friends. As delightful as your sofa may seem, there are a few setbacks that you either have experienced already or are going to experience in the future. If you have yet to purchase a sofa, these facts just may give you a different view on your sofa-preferences. Make sure you take special note of the benefits and drawbacks involved when purchasing a small sofa compared to that of purchasing a large sofa.

If you have yet to purchase a sofa, these facts just may give you a different view on your sofa-preferences. Make sure you take special note of the benefits and drawbacks involved when purchasing a small sofa compared to that of purchasing a large sofa.

     Although a small sofa is going to be cheaper, lighter, and easier to move, and smaller in terms of taking up less room than a large sofa, there a quite a few drawbacks to this small piece of furniture. The smaller a sofa is, the less structurally sound it is going to be. The sofa is going to have a smaller frame, resulting in poor structure and a weak support system. This means that after a round of high-fives during the big game, you may plump your bottom down onto your petite sofa only to hear a loud crack as you crush the frame of the sofa. This is just one of the negative aspects of not purchasing a large sofa.

     Along with the poor structure and weak support system, your sofa is going to contribute to a great deal of back pain. Smaller cushions and less back support are not something you want to deal with. Having a smaller place to sit and relax may result in poor posture. Also, a small sofa is going to offer less room for you to relax, which is exactly what you are trying to do when lounging after a long day of work.

     Physical setbacks are not the only negative aspects of going small when it comes to sofas. A large sofa will offer plenty of room and seats for guests (if you have any). On the other hand, a smaller sofa is going to offer less seating in the event that your friends come over. This may result in awkward situations where some of your friends end up sitting on the floor. If your friends have to sit on the floor, they may decide to stop coming over to your house. They may even stop being your friend period. In conclusion, this basically means that owning a tiny sofa will result in the loss of friends.
