Deciding on the right sofa for your home can be like putting a puzzle together. There are many questions to ask yourself: What upholstery? What colors? How comfortable? But for this article, we’re only going to focus on answering one question: Should I buy a two or three cushion sofa?
How is this sofa primarily going to be used? Is it going in the study to serve as a relaxing environment for reading? Are the kids going to use it for watching TV and playing video games? Is it for hosting cocktail parties? Different answers require different solutions.
Let’s say you enjoy holding events at your home and want to provide the most seating possible. A large two-cushion couch may be the way to go—since most are designed to fit two people per cushion.
If it’s simply seating for a reading nook, a small two-cushion piece seems the logical choice.
However, do you or someone in your family enjoy sleeping on the sofa? If the answer is yes, the choice between a two or three cushion couch is subject to some debate. Some couch-nappers complain that the middle cushion on a three-cushion couch gets flattened out faster, much to their disapproval. But the prevailing voice seems to be on the other side of the aisle. Many people who use their two-cushion couch to nap complain about the discomfort of their rear end lying directly on the crack between the cushions. Whichever you choose, you’ll want to get something long and wide enough so you can stretch out!
The question of whether you should buy a two or three cushion sofa can also come down to simple math. Basically, how many people do want to comfortably sit in the room? Three-cushion couches are perfect for—you guessed it—seating three. While the two-cushion sofas get can be two or four seaters, generally speaking, it’s unlikely someone would sit between guests on a two-cushion couch. Once again, the crack between the cushions is a deterrent.
But perhaps most importantly, where the sofa is going will help you make your final decision. In smaller properties, a petite two-cushion couch is often best. But if space is not a concern, large families can probably get the most out of a larger two-cushion sofa designed to seat four. Regardless, check the dimensions of the couch before buying. A great way to get a feel of how the space is going to feel with your new couch is to cut out a template of your potential couch out of paper and place it on the floor in the intended room. This lets you “preview” the couch in your space before buying.

Everyone has a unique body—which also means they have unique sleeping needs. For people who are overweight, a quality mattress can be the difference between a restful and healthy night’s sleep and feeling tired and lethargic throughout the day. To make sure you have the right mattress for your size, what should you look for in the ideal mattress? Here’s what to look for in the best mattress for heavy people.
According to a survey, 74% of us sleep on our sides, yet only 65% of us say we get a “restful night’s sleep” three times per week. Why the discrepancy?
