Just because you want to redecorate your house, does not mean you need to buy new furniture. You can just place things in the right places and keep a center point in the space and you will already be able to achieve a good look for your living room. As always, it is not recommended that you put excessive amounts of embellishments or lots of furniture in your living room. Aside from the fact that they can cause accidents, they are messy to look at.
If you still cannot imagine the position of the sofa, you can draw the plan of the living room and then place the sofa wherever you want it to be. The color of the walls also has to match the sofa sets. This is true for the outdoor sofa set as well, if you are planning to keep them against the exterior walls of the house. After you have decided on the color and the design of the sofa set, you will then have to select the fabric.
Furniture consumers today are fast becoming sophisticated and stylish savvy when it comes to their home furnishings and large international furniture makers and retailers such as IKEA have been cashing in on the trend.
Also you could bring these photos with you when you go sofa hunting as many furniture retailers these days will have an interior stylist on hand so you will be able to provide a graphic example of your living room so you can make full use of the shop floor professional advice.
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.
Putting a designer sofa in your living room also illustrates your neat and high-sense of taste. Sure, there are hundreds of sofas you can choose from various furniture shops but the ones made by designers are exclusive. These sofas and home furnishings are patented so you cannot just see them anywhere. In fact, most furniture designers launch only few pieces of their works to maintain their exclusivity. Plus, their designs are not available all year round. They only make a collection every season, so what you see now may not be available next month.
