A great thing to get hold of is a colour card so you can get samples of the other colours you have in your living area and match them against sofas you're interested in to get an idea of how well it will work in the space you have in mind.
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.
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.
A great way to get some idea of what types of colours and shades will perfectly go with the existing decor and lighting of your living room is to take a few photos of your living space in a number of different light settings.
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 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.
