He does not spend time with him. It resists the latest trends without losing a bit of style, adapts with versatility to the changes and is also in perfect condition, almost as if it were the first day. We are referring to the sofa.
An indispensable piece of furniture in any living room. And that, therefore, we must choose with great care. Do you want a sofa for a lifetime?
Do you have room for that sofa?
Before you begin to think about style and color, the first thing of all will be to consider the size . So take the subway and start measuring your living room. To get right with your choice, you will need to add a few extra meters to the size of the sofa. So you will have space around this piece of furniture to pass in comfort.
But, in addition, it is important to leave some space around the furniture to avoid that the decoration is a little overwhelming. In other words, however much we like that sofa we just discovered, if it comes a little “right” does not make much sense.
Keep in mind also the volume of the furniture . Some sofas look small, but when we see them in the living room they look bigger. So in addition to paying attention to the measures, it also monitors the visual volume occupied by the piece.
How many are you at home?
Another question you should ask yourself before purchasing the sofa is the number of people you are at home. If you are too many, you can always choose to accompany the sofa with an armchair, armchair or a pouf if you do not have enough space.
It is about that all the members of the house can enjoy a comfortable seat when sharing the hall. If you find it difficult to get it, perhaps a good option is to plan another type of distribution of the room. In this sense, it is also important to take into account the use we make of this piece of furniture. If we use it a lot, resistance and comfort are priority requirements.
How is the room decorated?
Of course, another aspect that we should consider when choosing the sofa is the style . If the decoration of our living room is classic, a French style and romantic style, with round lines, soft tone, high backs and large armrests is a good choice. But if your decor is more contemporary and contemporary, nothing better than a modern sofa, straight lines, neutral tones and low back. Do not lose sight of the small details of your sofa: upholstery, metal studs … All these details put the final touch of style to our sofa.
In this sense, we must take into account whether or not we want to highlight the sofa . That is to say, if we want to integrate the furniture inside the decoration, the ideal is a design in harmony with the environment so that it does not disentangle. Maybe something discreet. But if we want this piece of furniture to be the protagonist, then we can opt for a design with a lot of personality.
A smooth or stamped design?
Finally, we should consider the color of the sofa. Sleek or stamped? There is a standard in decoration that says that the more neutral the sofa, the easier it will be to fit it in the living room. We can give the touch of style with the help of cushions, plaids and even we can place a sling.
As far as color is concerned, attention must also be paid to the tone. Light tones bring light and breadth. While dark colors absorb light, this makes the room look smaller than it actually is. As for the printed designs , they are recommended in spacious rooms and in poorly decorated environments. Otherwise, the final decoration can be a bit excessive and overloaded.
