A sofa not only creates an atmosphere of coziness and comfort in the living room.
A sofa in the living room interior: location
Where should the sofa be put? There is no single answer to this question is. It all depends on the room size, location of windows, doors, TVs and many other factors. Again, there is no single recipe, but there are some universal tips.
In a large living room:
A large corner sofa in the living room is a perfect solution! It is not only convenient and comfortable but shows a consistency of the owner and smoothes the corners of the room. In addition, many models are equipped with folding and coffee tables, shelves and various other items. And you can put the sofa in the middle of the room in front of TV. This option, of course, takes more useful space, but it looks more interesting than in traditional arrangement. Just keep in mind that back part of the sofas usually are not upholstered and you will not be able to put them in the center of the living room because of it.
In a small living room
It is better to put an ordinary small sofa along the wall. And if it is a convertible sofa, it can be used as an extra bed. By the way, some sofa models have niches for storage. This will also help to save space.
If you want to put a coffee table in a small living room, it had better be glass. It will look almost weightless.
Color and material
If the walls and furniture in the room will be the same color, they will merge into a mess. If they are strongly contrasted, nothing good will come of it. However, the latter option is suitable for the black-and-white interior. A sofa traditional colors will perfectly fit in a living room with soothing shades– blue, black, brown and beige. White is suitable for pastel-colored rooms.
On the contrary, you can make the sofa a bright spot, choosing a red, yellow or green color.
Making something interesting……
Materials should be chosen as carefully as the color. There is always going to be a lot of people in the living room, so the sofa, or more precisely, the materials from which it is made, shall be resistant.
Leather looks luxurious but also costs money. A synthetic leather is cheaper, but in no way inferior in performance qualities.
Velour, tapestry, flock are popular. But they are quite short-lived. Jacquard and chenille will last much longer, although their price is virtually identical.
It is possible to combine several materials in a single couch and make the seat and backrest from chenille and armrests from leatherette. There are lots of combinations!
When choosing a sofa, it is worth remembering that it won’t be replaced soon. Therefore, we must carefully choose a color, shape, materials, and its location.
