For many homes, the sofa in their living room is a focal point. Enough so that you want to make sure you are choosing the right one when you buy a new one. There are several things that you should think about to ensure you are choosing the right sofa for your home that include the color, fabric, style and size. Carpet Care 2000 is here to share some pointers that will you guide in the search for the perfect sofa for your home.
Furniture Scale to Room Size
Choosing the right sized sofa for your living room can be tricky. Of course, you want to be as comfortable as possible, but you may want to put scale at the top of the list of things to consider right there with comfort. It may be tempting to choose that sofa that is oversized and offers so much comfort, but you will likely regret it in the end if it takes over the space in your living room. You don’t want your sofa to eat up too much space. Generally speaking, you want to have 18 inches of space on either side of the sofa to move around.
Select the Right Size & Shape of Your Sofa
You shouldn’t have a sofa that just seems to float out into the middle of the room. You want the sofa to fit into the space you have for it. There are several different variations to the way that homes are laid out in today’s world. Many people like to live in a home that has an open floorplan. This is where you may want to consider a sectional sofa that can give shape to your space as well as separation.
Circulation & Traffic Space Around Upholstered Furniture
Something that many people forget as they are shopping for the perfect sofa for their space is the traffic flow that is alive in that space. Having a piece of furniture that impedes on the natural path of traffic in and out of a room can have a big impact on the overall feel of the space. You don’t want your couch to interrupt the energy that naturally flows through the room as well as physically get in the way of traffic.
Uses of Sofa
It may sound fun to say that you plan to entertain on your sofa, but you need to be honest. How often do you really have people over? Are you planning to use this sofa as a place to curl up with your next favorite book or are you planning on falling asleep on it as you watch your favorite show? If you entertain often, you may want a larger sofa, but if you’re in reality, only going to be using it with you and your significant other, choose the one that fits the space better.
