How to Pick the Right Sofas for Your Living Space
Buying a sofa is just a part of expressing yourself in your home. The problem with this of course is knowing what to buy. National Furniture Liquidators has a huge selection of sofas to choose from. Before going to shop, think about the size, shape and where the sofas will go in the home.
Think About Size
Knowing the size you want and the size you can have are two very different things. This may seem like an obvious thing to know, but so often, the furniture looks right in the store, but ends up being too big or too small. This is not because you could not tell, but because when you see the piece in a show room, it seems a different size. This happens because of the size of the room combined with the space the sofas are apart from each other. The best way to avoid such a mishap, is to bring a tape measure with you. First measure the space you have. Then compare that to the size of the couch you are interested in. if the measurements match, you are good to go.
Think of shape When Searching for Sofas
Depending on what kind of room you want the piece for, there are specific shapes that will work better than others. For large open rooms, an oblong or curved couch can work nicely. This is because the room will feel spacy and let the people sitting on the couch feel free. This shape does not work for small rooms with low ceilings or a single entryway. This is because the couch will likely take up all the space and make the occupants feel crowded. For small low ceiling rooms, consider love seats or a single full size.
Decide Where the Couch Will Go
Besides knowing the room that you need the piece for, you should also decide where it is going to go in the room. This means thinking about angles, placement and what other furniture is going to go in the room. One way to clearly see this is to place pieces of newspaper in the assigned positions. This is great way to visually see what the room will like when completed. If you are replacing a couch, then you want to think about color scheme as well. You want to make sure the couch you pick will match with the room décor. Another note is to be careful of dark colors for rooms with little to no lighting. This will make the room seem drab and depressing. On the other hand bright colors in a likewise brightly lit room can make it too bright and uncomfortable.
