Investing in a large furniture piece can be daunting, but it doesn't have to be. With a few simple steps you will be on your way to buying the perfect sofa.
1. Consider the Setting.
Is this sofa going to live in this place for a while? If yes, customize the couch to the space. If not, keep the size and shape under control.
2. Ponder the Purpose.
Sectional sofas are informal and suitable for a family room or lounging space, while a couple of couches are a better choice for a formal living room. In a pinch a well-selected sectional can do double duty pulled apart. Consider whether the chesterfield will be used as an extra sleeping spot.
3. Pick a Colour and Material.
Light, colourful, or dark? It depends if you want a bold pop of bright in the room, or something more versatile like a washable white or a darker, more forgiving tone. Greys are always a safe choice.
4. Ace the Base.
Stainless steel reads as modern and industrial, while wood is classic and warm. Keeping your base simple will allow it to stay current and remain on trend.
5. Keep it Simple Silly.
When in doubt, choose a piece with right angles. The simpler the sofa, the less chance for regret. Take your time, go with your gut, and spend a little extra if it gets you what you want. Quality shouldn't be compromised for the sake of saving a few dollars in the short term.
