There are so many types from which to choose, and the many selections can be overwhelming. Before shopping, it's best to have an idea of the types of sofas that your space and pocketbook will suit.
A corner sofa usually fits into most spaces and allows more spaces for your other furniture. You just have to search for the most comfortable and functional sofa to compliment your room or lounge. Since corner sofas are made up of several parts, you can purchase only the components you want for your room. However, buying the whole set is also good because you can put the other components to various parts of the house. This type of sofa is versatile so it can give your space many different looks and styles.
Another good tip is to measure your living area and even roughly draw a scaled floor plan of your living area so when you spot that perfect curved sofa, it's just a matter measuring the dimensions of the sofa to get an accurate idea if you have plenty of space to showcase your beautiful new sofa in your living room as well as having a good idea if the shape of the curved sofa that you have just fell in love with compliments the shape of your living room.
It is crucial that you measure your space and work out the ideal size that your sofa needs to be. Think about how many people you need to seat regularly and where the best placement in the room would be (keeping in mind doorways and other furniture pieces). It's a great idea to measure your current sofa to get an idea or alternatively, measure out on the ground with masking tape or newspaper different sizes. This will help you visualise the item in the room and how you move around it. Secondly, even though it may fit within your required space the overall proportion will impact the look within the room. A sofa with chunkier or heavier overall proportions will appear larger in the room, whilst a sofa that is raised from the floor and has slim arms and seat proportions will appear lighter and visually consume less space. Use this to your advantage, look for heavier styles if you are looking to fill a large room and vice versa, and be aware of the impact the showroom has on the look of the sofa, in general showrooms will be very open and have high ceilings, making all sofas look smaller than they are.
Don't be afraid to choose sofas with funky prints or bright colors. They can add a fun, quirky look to your living room and draw more people to it. If you're too nervous to invest in brightly-colored furniture, you can always get sofas in a neutral color then have vibrantly-colored slipcovers made for them.
If your corner sofa is made from real leather or synthetic leather materials, it is a good idea to place a glass center table so that it will be highlighted. You can also choose a wooden center table that has side tables so that you can create a homey feel for your living room.
