What size should the sofa be?

One of the first factors to have in consideration in the moment of choosing is the size of the sofa. This choice and of the model itself might change the perception you have of your living room dimension.

The size of your living room space will be a factor of great importance in your choice. If you are considering buying a large sofa you will need the space of your living room to be equally wide. However, this choice is not that simple and there are other matters to have in consideration.

In addition to having to measure the available space it is also important to think about the layout of the room. You have to consider whether you want to combine the sofa with other furniture pieces, as coffee tables, armchairs or even if you want to have more than one sofa.

You must ensure that you have enough space to move around and that the ambience is not too crowded and that you can establish a harmonious relationship with the rest of the furniture in your living room.

Is your living room small? A compact and practical model might be a great solution.

Is your living room of big dimensions? If it is you can opt for a big sofa, with chaise longue, curved or even combine different models.

What is the best colour and fabric for the sofa?

Have you already chosen the ideal sofa size for you? Great! Now let’s think about the points that are quite often directly related: colour and fabric.

Your taste here is very important. A sofa of genuine leather is a classic! It always gives a refined look to your interior decoration of any home. We know that this material is a bit cold unlike velvet, suede or even chamois, which are smoother and softer. That is, there is no wrong choice! The perfect choice is the one you like best, that goes along with the comfort you are seeking and also meets the functionality you need for you daily life.

Regarding colour, neutral tones are without a doubt the safest choice. You can always mix it with other colourful elements like decorative pillows, jars, vases, amongst others.  This is a great low cost solution for those who like to stay up to date with the latest trends.

Nevertheless, you can always be bold and choose a colour for your sofa that conveys energy to the space, bringing life into your living room! Especially if we are talking about a space whose interior decoration already has a predominance of neutral tones.

Living room style

Another factor to have in consideration is how your sofa flows with the already existing interior decoration of your home and of your living room. Once the sofa is the element that stand out the most it must be in harmony with all decoration.

Whether it is a sofa of classic style or with a design more related to the contemporary style the important point is that you like it and that it feels harmonious with all the ambience.
