Clarice Lamattina January 3, 2020 Sofas & Couches
Buying a sofa, couch, or furniture suite is a major investment, so take more than just looks into account. Give size, comfort, construction, and the type of covering careful consideration, too.
If you are looking for a more formal feeling for your living room, the standard three person sofa is one way to go. These sofas typically have a more traditional look to them. However, you can still have the seating capacity of a sectional. Pair your sofa up with a loveseat or a second sofa. Depending on how formal you want your living room, you may not have a television. But if you have a fireplace, you want your main sofa facing it. Arrange your loveseat or second sofa off to its side moving towards the fireplace. If you do not have a fireplace, you have the opportunity to design the perfect area for friends and family to gather and catch up with each other. Placing your two sofas directly opposite each other crates a nice warm gathering spot. For some, however, this may seem a little stuffy and old fashioned. If so, you can place a second sofa running diagonally on one side and other chairs or loveseat on the other side running diagonally as well. Do this so you create a triangle instead of a square, with your sofa table in the middle. This way, you can get a formal look yet contemporary feel at the same time.
Couch covers are not just incredibly simple to change, they are affordable too, so if you are looking to give your room a makeover without blowing your budget on new furniture, fitted slipcovers could be the solution! Many people like to buy more than one set of slipcovers, so they can change the image of their room to suit the occasion or to match the seasons. Furniture covers come in a huge variety of colors and patterns, from classic floral designs to bright and bold modern prints, so there is something to complement all kinds of decor.
Consider the proportions of the room in relation to the height and depth of the sofa. There is a lot of variation in the height of different sofas according to their style, and if the ceilings are low, a high-backed sofa may dwarf the space just as much as a sofa that is too large.
The discomfort of sitting on a worn or badly made sofa or armchair is all too familiar. A sofa with broken springs or seat cushions that have so little padding you feel as if you are sitting directly on the base is uncomfortable and, if you sit in it for any length of time, can lead to troublesome aches and pains.
You can look for a re-upholsterer near you (always an option), but you may be surprised to find that even your sofa can be renewed online. Fabric manufacturers now make their custom sewing work available through online web retail stores, particularly sellers of futon covers and bedding collections. Some of our finest American fabric manufacturers collectively offer thousands of fabrics from which to choose, including fabrics from top designers, at pretty reasonable prices.
