Consider function, fabric and color to make your next wrap around sofa selecting trip a smashing success. Whether you are planning a trip to the store or you are browsing online, shopping for a sofa can be a bit overwhelming. There are lots (and lots!) of choices, and the last thing you want is buyers remorse. But where, oh where should you start? To help make your sofa shopping adventure as stress-free as possible, we have zeroed in on three things to consider: function, fabric and color.
Not all sofa couches are created equal. When it comes to size, sofas can range from around 75 inches long to over 100 inches in length. These metro-sized sofas were designed specifically for tight quarters.
If you find your family torn between a great view of the TV and the warm flicker of the fireplace, this smart setup will keep everyone happy. Not only does it let you float between focal points, but it is conversation friendly, too! A sofa table serves as a nice room divider, and it provides a place to display decorative accents or a table lamp. Alternatively, substitute a sectional for your sofa so everyone has room to stretch out.
The first stage is all about establishing your room foundation with those must-have pieces, like a sofa and loveseat. By opting for a neutral color like almond for your furniture and walls, you will have more decorating options when you begin piecing your room together. And if you want to inject some punch into your space, look to your throw pillows and a few color-coordinated accents.
