Buying a settee can be a challenge, because there are so many good looking settees to choose from. Supermarkets, malls and online retail outlets have dozens of settees in various colors, sizes and styles. These can either be purchased individually or in sets of two or three.
Following are some things one should take into consideration when buying a settee:
• Cost: One should never spend more than he or she can truly afford. If a particular settee sofa is very expensive, one should see if another retailer has a better price, purchase the sofa secondhand or find another suitable sofa or sofa set.
• Aesthetics: A sofa should look good in the room where it is placed. It should match in color and in style with the other furnishings in the room.
• Practicalities: The settee should be the right size for the room. It should be reasonably easy to assemble and keep clean. A settee that is purchased for the porch or garden should be impervious to rain and the elements. Any settee, no matter where it is placed, should be comfortable to sit on.
What are the Options?
Those who are looking for an outdoor settee will find that a settee bench is an excellent option. Some of these have back and seat cushions but many of these benches are made only from wood or metal. Bench settees without cushions are not particularly comfortable but are ideal for a garden, while benches with cushions are perfect for the porch.
A person who is purchasing a settee for the living room may want to consider a leather settee sofa. Such a sofa can be a bit pricey, but one may be able to find a good deal online. Leather settees can be either formal or contemporary in style and come in various colors. They are easy to keep clean and maintain and are quite durable.
Settees can also be made using fabric. Fabric sofas are cheaper than leather ones and can be quite comfortable. These can be either solid in color or printed. Bed settees are yet another good option; these can be made from either fabric or leather and unfold into a bed when needed. A bed settee is particularly handy to have if there are no guest rooms in a house.
Those who live in a small apartment or condo may want to consider a corner settee. A sofa of this nature provides plenty of room for people to sit but does not take up much space in the living room. Corner sofas can set anywhere from three to five or six people and can be made from fabric or leather.
