Choosing the right sofa for your new home or your redecorating project can be dizzying. Its because there are just so many choices. Have you been in a furniture store recently? They are the size of football fields and have miles, and miles of sofa selections you can make. But in reality there are only three types of sofas, and these three types may use combinations of the other.
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.
It is not easy to renovate or redesigns the living room. An indoor sofa set is different from an outdoor sofa set, like the wicker outdoor sofa set. You need to know the differences between the two types of furniture types. People generally feel that the outdoor furniture and the indoor furniture can be the same. In fact, the outdoor furniture is generally the heavy duty furniture with a lot of difference. You will get several redesigning concepts on the internet. You may want to use the idea directly or indirectly.
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.
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.
Is space an issue? Get a smaller but brightly-colored piece instead, and make sure that it complements other furniture pieces you currently own.
