There are a few factors you will need to take into account if you are considering buying a modular unit for your home. These include the spatial restrictions of your living room as well as the size, style and your existing interior design theme. You will need to carefully measure the space you would like your new modular unit to sit in and consider the colour scheme and style of the room in order to determine what will be the best fit. Bear in mind that you will want enough space for your unit to be completely adjustable in its full range of configurations. You will then need to determine what type of fabric you want your sofa to be upholstered in, bearing in mind how easy it is to clean.
For living rooms that are more formal and not used for every day leisure, leather sofas are a classic choice and can be a beautiful addition, blending with almost any décor. If you're investing a good amount of money into a sofa that will last for many years, a leather sofa may be the best choice. A brown or black leather sofa can be easily assimilated to conform to any changes you make in the colour combinations or design of the room over the years, unlike fabric upholstered sofas that may have colours that may pre-define and limit your choices should you want to change carpet or wall colours.
A great thing to get hold of is a colour card so you can get samples of the other colours you have in your living area and match them against sofas you're interested in to get an idea of how well it will work in the space you have in mind.
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.
If you want better style, you will have to extend your budget. If you want cheaper sofas, you will have to forget the best styles. If you have very limited space in the house, you may have to buy a smaller sofa or a dual purpose sofa. When you are buying your sofa, you will have to give deep thought to the style of the living room. If the sofa does not match the style of the living room, people will not appreciate the beauty of the living room.
Another way you can design the room is to put simple curtains in the room. But still, you don't want to lose focus on your corner sofa. This is why you need to choose curtains which are solid and neutral colored. If you do this, you will be the envy of your guests as you have been able to create a room welcoming enough yet simple to the eye.
