So you just moved into a new house, and you have all this space which would look nice with a good sofa in it. Very soon, family and friends will be coming over to check out your new crib. How do you choose the right sofa to fit in into your living quarters and also look befitting of your new status? This article will give some quick and dirty tips for choosing the right sofa.
1. Colour: Buying a sofa is like getting into a long-term relationship. You have to look before you leap. Don’t make the choice simply because it looks colourful. Will you be comfortable with that colour some months or years down the line? If you must go with colourful, restrict that to the throw pillows. Its much easier to change them than to change an entire sofa set.
2. Style: Do you want a modern or traditional look in your home? If you want a contemporary look in your home, then you should go for sofa sets with arms that are at an equal length with the sofa’s back. For a traditional look, go for a sofa with arms curved downwards.
3. Space: It makes no sense buying a sofa set, only to find upon reaching home, that it is a few inches wider than the space you meant it for. Ensure to measure the space you intend to put the sofa, and factor this as make your rounds of furniture stores, online and offline.
4. Furniture Theme: Like literature, your furniture has to have a central theme. If its meant for the sitting room, then the focus of the furniture will be in a semi-circle, focused on the television, with a table in the middle for family games. To create an artificial division in an otherwise open space, you can go with L-shaped sofas. For a dining setting, a sofa set in a circle would be your perfect choice.
