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 to highlight your corner sofa, you can simply put plain and basic accessories so that the area surrounding it will be furnished. If you choose to put a vase, you can place it on one of the side tables which are beside the end of the sofa. In order to add color to the room, you can put in simple flowers like tulips on these vases. However, you should not choose elegant flower arrangements as these will not match the simplicity of your corner sofa.
The style of your sofa should complement the style of your house and your existing furniture. It should also function in a way that suits your lifestyle and functions for you. Buying a low-line, sleek sofa that looks great in the showroom amongst contemporary furniture is great if you have a modern home. But if you really prefer a comfy, cushioned seat that you can sink into, keep looking for the one that will suit you and your home. For configurations, will a simple 2 or 3 seater work in your space or can it take a larger corner or chaise lounge? Do you move house regularly? Chaise lounges are a great solution for many modern apartments, but if you move around a lot, the chaise is fixed on that side, so it may not work in your next home, a 3 seater & an ottoman would be a better choice. It's best to decide before hitting the shops and being swayed by what's on display. In most cases, every sofa design is available in a range of various sizes and configurations to suit your needs.
If you are living in small apartment or condominium, a corner sofa is a good choice to ramp up your living room. Since you can configure its sections, you can place its chaise end near the window for better relaxation. The closed sofa, however, can be placed in front of the television just like your ordinary sofa. A corner sofa is a great piece of furniture to maximize the space in your living room.
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.
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.
