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.
A sectional sofa is one that is usually one piece of furniture. They do come in all sizes and different shapes but you can find many of these sectional sofas for small spaces specifically.
A corner sofa with closed sofa and an open chaise end can allow more seating space. Plus, you can comfortably lift your legs or feet while you rest or sit on it. This type of sofa is a good choice of furniture because it saves space and money. When you use different arrangements, you can bring more people sit around in the same amount of space. You can allow five people to sit on a sofa which normally fits three if you attach or detach some parts. This allows you to gather, meet and talk to your guests easier.
Curved Sofas have increased in popularity over recent years as many people become more adventurous and creative with how they dress their homes with furniture.
Although you may be tempted by large sofas, stop yourself from buying the first L-shaped leather couch you see. Consider the size of the living room first; do you want to eventually fill it with other sofas, chairs and possibly a stylish coffee table? If so, then it might not be a good idea to get a piece that takes up too much room.
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.
