If you are living in small apartment or condominium, a corner sofa is a good choice to ramp up your living room. Since you can configure its sections, you can place its chaise end near the window for better relaxation. The closed sofa, however, can be placed in front of the television just like your ordinary sofa. A corner sofa is a great piece of furniture to maximize the space in your living room.
Buying a sofa in the wrong size & proportion: It is crucial that you measure your space and work out the ideal size that your sofa needs to be. Think about how many people you need to seat regularly and where the best placement in the room would be (keeping in mind doorways and other furniture pieces). It‘s a great idea to measure your current sofa to get an idea or alternatively, measure out on the ground with masking tape or newspaper different sizes. This will help you visualise the item in the room and how you move around it. Secondly, even though it may fit within your required space the overall proportion will impact the look within the room. A sofa with chunkier or heavier overall proportions will appear larger in the room, whilst a sofa that is raised from the floor and has slim arms and seat proportions will appear lighter and visually consume less space. Use this to your advantage, look for heavier styles if you are looking to fill a large room and vice versa, and be aware of the impact the showroom has on the look of the sofa, in general showrooms will be very open and have high ceilings, making all sofas look smaller than they are.
Modular sofas generally come sold in separate sections which can then be assembled to form one unit which can be adjusted regularly to form new configurations. This is a great option for those who tire of traditional sofas and are aiming for more variety in their seating arrangements. Usually these are pretty easy to assemble and will come with instructions for set up. However, if you are unsure how to build your modular sofa unit you can always look up an instructional video on YouTube or search the internet for some helpful tips and tricks. Modular units are designed for convenience and practicality so should not be hard to set up.
When it comes to style and materials, make sure to choose sofas that reflect your lifestyle and the people who live in your home. That white suede couch might look chic and elegant, but it can be a poor choice if you have pets or children who can easily stain and damage it. Leather on the other hand, is a popular choice among new homeowners because it‘s easy to clean and continues to look good as the years go by.
Analyze your lifestyle: Organizing your furniture and deciding where your sofas will go will depend entirely on the way you live. Does your family like gathering around the TV or fireplace during cold months? Make sure the couch faces that direction. Do you use the living room to read or unwind after a stressful day at work? Put several bookshelves, chairs, cushions, or even an ottoman around the sofa so the area can be enjoyed individually or by the whole family.
