Sofas come in an extensive range of colours and styles; so, whether you like the feel of leather or the warmth of fabric; there is a sofa for everyone. However, if you live in a smaller property, a flat or a townhouse, one issue which can prove particularly tricky is whether the sofa you desire will potentially fit in your lounge, through your front door or up the stairs – which is where ‘Sofa in a Box’ is a practical solution to an everyday problem.
With houses getting considerably smaller since the 1970s; it is reported that the average British house now has just 2.95 bedrooms and a living room that is nearly a third smaller. The research, by LABC Warranty, which provides warranties for new-build homes, found that the average living room in a house built since 2010 was 17.1 square metres (184 sq ft), compared with 24.9 sq m (268 sq ft) in the 1970s. This is therefore, a 32% reduction and means living room space has shrunk to levels last seen over 80 years ago.
Land is at a premium with new houses being built on a smaller footprint and therefore, townhouses have become one way of solving this problem as they are built up rather than out to try and retain living space. However, Townhouses are generally designed with the living room on the first floor; so, not only do you need to get any furniture through the front door, but you also have to negotiate the stairs and any tight angles. Terraced houses can also prove challenging if they have no side access or alternatively you may live in a flat with space and access both a big issue.
This is where ‘Sofa in a Box’ really comes into its own and can be delivered as a flatpack and taken to any room in your home, unboxed and assembled in under 5 minutes with no tools. The sections fits together with an easy-lock in mechanism that features a tapered design with hard nylon edges keeping the model rigid.
