Getting a sofa requires careful thinking because it can make or break the beauty of your living room. A perfect designer sofa is something that adds life and beauty to your living room. Besides, what is a living room without a sofa? It's true that you pay good money for a designer sofa. But you know what? Its exclusivity and quality are even priceless.
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.
Like everything else in today's era of endless choices, there seems to be infinite possibilities when it comes to choosing the perfect living room sofas for your new home. You might have an idea of what you're looking for, but as soon as you enter your local furniture store or browse through an online catalogue, the various designs, fabrics and shapes of sofas can become truly overwhelming.
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.
Modular sofas are a fantastic way to optimise space and infuse some variety into your living room arrangement. Ideal for larger spaces, they usually come in several pieces which can be configured in a variety of arrangements. This makes them more flexible than the conventional sofa and easier to adjust and customise in accordance with your specific requirements. Although predominantly available in contemporary styles, modular sofa units can be upholstered in a wide range of fabrics and with optional details and finishes which can make them both luxurious and unique furniture pieces.
