Buying a sofa can be a tiring and trying experience, but it can also be a pleasurable one. If you are new in this, it can be daunting – terrifying even – because there are so many options! But the two most important things to keep in mind are the place where you will put your new acquisition, and the style you’re going for.
Make it three things, because budget is on the top of the considerations.
Buying a sofa on a $300 budget
Sofas can range from $50 for an old piece found in a garage sale or a flea market, to over $10K if you are into luxurious pieces of furniture. If you have the money for a deluxe sofa, by all means, go for it! But if your budget is somewhat restricted and you want something more affordable, finding a great sofa under $300 is not impossible.
As we mentioned in another article about sofa under $200, the best time to hunt for bargains is February-March because stores are clearing showrooms to make space for new collections so you might find awesome pieces with huge discounts. And there are also websites where you can browse and “window-shop” until you find that perfect sofa.
