Sofas should fit your lifestyle – they come in all shapes and sizes, sometimes iconic in design – you may have already fallen in love with one. However, it is worth taking a little time to consider if your dream sofa will also fit your lifestyle.
When choosing sofas think about where you plan to put them and what they will be used for. Is the sofa for your living room, playroom or home office? If you need one for the playroom, it may be preferable to opt for a 4 Seater Sofas that can withstand a bit of rough and tumble, while one for the home office may need to be more of a showpiece.
Sofas Sizes and Shapes
Fancy a big comfy sofa for the living room? Well, there are lots of different sizes of sofas, from the smaller two-seater sofas up to four-seater sofas and the more extravagant corner sofa. The size you need really depends on the space you have, so measure up your room before anything else – you can also mark out the floor with paper to see just how much room a sofa might take up.
For smaller rooms, it is best to go for a smaller 2 seater sofa with either a second small sofa or an elegant armchair. Avoid sofas that are too big, as they will dominate the room and make it feel cluttered and small.
Equally if you have a large living room, a small sofa will feel lost and out of place, consider a suite or perhaps add more statement chairs like a leather recliner?
On a more practical note – it is important to check if your new sofa will fit through the door when it’s delivered and measure doorways, simple but could ultimately effect your final decision on the size of sofa you get.
