Choosing the right home sofa is not an easy decision! In theory, everyone wants their couch to be comfortable and beautiful, but is it easy to make these choices today, when there is so much abundance, and information pours from all sides, including online? Our team is here to help you make the right decision. Here are five tips to help you clarify exactly what you want (and what you need) before you go hunting for upholstered furniture.
- Take into consideration the size of the room. If your living room is spacious and large, you have to decide exactly how much space you would like the sofa to occupy. Do you only want a sofa, or would you also like an armchair with it? Maybe even a coffee table or a couple of additional small ones? If the answer to all three questions is positive, you need a simplistic "L" shaped sofa. If you are looking for a sofa that will serve as an accent in the room, you could choose upholstered furniture with rounded shapes that will create a cozy environment and allow more people to get together.
In case you do not have much space, the choice is definitely the straight, two- or three-seated sofa! Because of the limited space, it will surely be the accent in the living room, so it is important to choose practical but bold designer sofa that will complete the rest of the interior. The latest fashion trends embrace "levitating" sofas that are separated from the floor by having wooden or metal feet.
- Decide how you will position your sofa. To make the right decision, you need to analyze your lifestyle. What do you do most often in your living room? Do you like sitting in front of the fireplace or the TV? Then the sofa must be facing them. However, it’s really not necessary for the sofa’s back to be against the wall! A very suitable and modern solution is the loosely positioned sofa, and if you worry that you will see its back, you can always make an elegant library, tightly fitted to its back. Does your family love to rest in the living room with a book in hand or with a glass of wine? If that’s the case, you can spread around cushions on the couch and around it, and then add extra chairs, thus increasing the number of places for quality relaxation.
