Choosing the Right Sofa for Your Home
There are several decisions to make when it comes selecting the perfect couch for your house. Be sure to mull over all your options as you decide what type of seating will work best for you.
- Size: The first step in buying a new sofa is to measure your room to see how large a couch you need. As you do so, don’t forget to take into account space for foot traffic around the furniture so your room isn’t overcrowded.
- Upholstery: Next, the overall look of your furniture will be dictated by its covering. Choose leather for luxurious durability, or pick a solid or patterned fabric for a more casual look. Patterned upholstery will command attention as a focal point in the room while solids or neutral colors will help your sofa blend in with existing furniture.
- Accents: Don’t forget to take into account the legs of the furniture. If they are exposed, you’ll want the wood tone or color of the metal to blend well with other accents in your color scheme. You’ll also need to decide on matching or contrasting fabric for toss pillows in customizable options. All accents should work together in a harmonious whole for your decor.
