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.
When you buy a sofa, you expect it to last a number of years. In order for this to happen, you must make sure you are purchasing a good quality product. This will also save you money in the long run as you won't need to replace parts or the whole sofa. Don't be afraid to ask questions about a sofa's quality when shopping. Make sure every part of it (internal and external) has a warranty and that there are no shortcuts such as real leather on the seats but artificial leather on the back of the sofa. If they are taking shortcuts on the outside, you don't know what shortcuts they've taken on the inside.
Designing your lounge and choosing the right designer sofa are based on personal choices. If you are thinking of having a minimalist living room, you need to choose a simple yet multipurpose sofa. However, a soft and fluffy designer sofa is perfect if you want to create a homey living room. Fabrics, colors and designs are some vital factors that you also need to consider. Your living room is an extension of your personality so choose according to your heart's content.
Another consideration when selecting a new sofa is height, especially when your new sofa is going to be placed in front of an entertainment system, having a sofa which is the correct height not only in respect to your own body's dimensions but also the height of your flat panel television is vital consideration.
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.
For living rooms that are more formal and not used for every day leisure, leather sofas are a classic choice and can be a beautiful addition, blending with almost any décor. If you're investing a good amount of money into a sofa that will last for many years, a leather sofa may be the best choice. A brown or black leather sofa can be easily assimilated to conform to any changes you make in the colour combinations or design of the room over the years, unlike fabric upholstered sofas that may have colours that may pre-define and limit your choices should you want to change carpet or wall colours.
