Eight Stylish Sofas for Under $800 (and Three Features to Avoid)

Stylish sofas for under $800!

In my opinion, you can’t go wrong with any of the above sofas!

Just like with everything, there are common sofa-buying mistakes that are more common than you’d think.

Buying the Wrong Size Sofa

It’s so easy to buy a sofa that’s too big or too small for your space. When you’re in the showroom, sofas can look deceivingly small. 

Before buying, make sure you measure your space to ensure you find a piece that fits your space well.

Choosing the Wrong Color 

Often, we’ll be attracted to a sofa in a trendy color, and then hate it a couple years later. 

Personally, I only buy large pieces of furniture in neutral colors. I then add color with throws, pillows and other accessories. 

Buying a Poor Quality Piece

I know not everyone can afford a $1500 sofa, but you’d be surprised at the quality you can buy if you just do a little research beforehand. A sofa that will fall apart in two years will not save you any money in the long run.
