Second hand sofas aren't at the pinnacle of interior design. However, it's something that a lot of people have in their homes. This is something that you might have inherited when you first got an apartment. It might have even been in the apartment when you moved in. You can still get a very specific design style just by paying attention to a few design principles.
If you are looking for a sleeper sofa because you don't have a guest room and need the space, but want to accommodate any guests that come over, then you might want to look at the sofa sectional sleeper.
A corner sofa is considered as a good piece of furniture that will compliment the living room. Thanks to its flexibility, you will have no trouble looking for additional furniture pieces to match with it. You can simply add up a vase, coffee table or an ottoman and you will already have a new look to your old 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.
Only keep what's essential for seating. You could just take a basic floral print sofa. Then decide to go with wicker rocking chairs. You can get these quite inexpensively and it could even be outdoor furniture. This allows you to get rid of one of the pieces that you aren't really in love with. This is going to give you a shabby chic kind of feel. You can also bring in more neutral colors of ottomans and end tables. This is going to make your design look intentional instead of like you just inherited a piece of furniture even if you did.
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.
