Buying the Perfect Sofa Set
Many people have bought new sofa sets which they thought would be great only to reach home and find that it was a total waste. To get the best out of your purchase of a sofa set, more factors need to be considered other than enhancing the sitting experience in your living room. Here are a few tips to help you purchase the right sofa set that will complement your living rooms in terms of décor and functionality-:
Available space in your living room
The size of your living room should not necessarily reflect the size of the sofa you to buy. Consider choosing an ideal size that will allow you room to add other furniture like coffee tables, other types of couches, side tables etc. You also need to leave ample space for movement in the room. Don’t just fill up the whole room with just one sofa.
The orientation of the sofa
The orientation adopted by your sofa should complement the kind of activities that goes on most of the time in your living room. For instance, if you like to wind down in front of a TV, then your sofa should be oriented facing the position of the television and so you must consider this when choosing your set. But if you use the living room with the whole family to lounge or host games, then a semi circle or a full circle sofa with cushions around it would be ideal.
Choose the right upholstery material
Just as the aesthetics of your sofa are important, so is the functionality. Take note of the upholstery of the particular set you are choosing and be sure it will fit your lifestyle. For instance, suede will be a poor choice if you have pets or small children while plush white leather will require too much attention to keep clean and attractive.
The style should complement your home décor
It may be a bit tricky to get it right the first time but strive to choose a couch that will blend seamlessly with your current interior décor. The last thing you want is a sofa that is beautiful but completely out of tune with the rest of your décor.
