If it’s time to replace your sofa, don’t rush out and buy the first one you like. Instead, take your time deciding which sofa would be best for your home, since it’s a big investment in terms of furniture. Keep the following tips in mind when you start shopping for your next sofa.
Determine the Right Size
Sofas come in different sizes, and you don’t want to end up getting one that won’t fit in your living room. Measure the room your sofa will be going in, and use that measurement to figure out what size sofa you should get. A sofa that’s too big will make your living room feel overcrowded and cluttered, while a sofa that’s too small will make the room look too bare and sparse.
Select a Material
The type of material you get should go well with the rest of your living room decor. You might also want to take practical concerns into consideration, especially if you have small children or any pets. For example, a suede sofa in a lighter color might not be a good choice if you have pets or kids, but a leather one that’s easy to clean should work better.
Choose a Style
The style of sofa you get should be based on the overall style of your home decor. Choose a sleek, contemporary style of a sofa to match a more modern home design, or go with a vintage sofa if your design tastes are more eclectic. If your home decor might change from time to time, choose a traditional sofa in neutral tones.
Decide on a Color
The color of your sofa should complement the surrounding decor or add a touch of contrast without being too harsh. You can choose a neutral tone and spruce it up with colored accent pillows if you already have a lot of color in your living room, or go with a brighter sofa to add color to a room that mainly has neutral walls and decor.
