Organizing your furniture and deciding where your sofas will go will depend entirely on the way you live. Does your family like gathering around the TV or fireplace during cold months? Make sure the couch faces that direction. Do you use the living room to read or unwind after a stressful day at work? Put several bookshelves, chairs, cushions, or even an ottoman around the sofa so the area can be enjoyed individually or by the whole family.
When purchasing a sofa, it is easy to get confused or frustrated at the sheer range of colours, materials and styles, not to mention the various levels of quality and pricing. Be careful not to make a decision on impulse or out of frustration. Here are a few tips to make the process simple and ensure that you don't end up regretting your purchase.
When you head out to showrooms to look for your new sofa, you can be hit with all kinds of questions about the kind of thing you're after and if you don't know the answers you can easily end up being persuaded to buy a sofa you're not sure about. To avoid this catastrophe, here is the knowledge you need.
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.
Once you're at the sofa showroom ask as many questions as you can about the materials, the design, the ordering and the delivery process. If you don't get the answers you want there and then ask them to find out and get back to you. Its best to know absolutely everything about the sofa before you make any investment.
Not many people collect antique sofas - or have sofas of older styles custom designed. I don't think it is a bad idea, actually. If one were to decorate one's home with an antique theme - with beautiful furniture, accessories and other decor, a lounge similar to the designs used in ancient Rome may be extremely beautiful. The distinct look of such a motif would be incredibly impressive to your guests, as well as an elegant environment for you and your family.
