Shopping for Furniture Sofa Set Design and Other Considerations

When shopping for living room furniture sofa set design is the primary consideration of many homeowners. But apart from design, there are a few other important considerations that you need to factor in, in order to achieve the look you are after and prevent buyer’s remorse some time later.

If you are furniture shopping for your living room, here are the important factors that you need to consider.

Size comes first

Before making a trip to your local furniture shop, it is a good idea to evaluate your living room and its size. This will give you a better idea of how much available space you are working with.

For example, if you currently own a few furniture pieces that you want to retain, you will fare better with a simple couch. On the other hand, if you have a large room to fill, you might want to consider sofa sets which have round shapes.

For smaller living rooms, a small couch is a no-brainer. Every available space in the room should be effectively utilized so you need to pick a sofa set that is both stylish and functional.

Sofa set orientation

Once you have narrowed down your choices further, the next important factor that you need to consider is the orientation of the sofa set.

Here, it is a good idea to be guided by the primary function of the living room. For example, if the living room will be primarily used by the members of the household, the couch will be oriented toward the TV set. On the other hand, if you regularly host get-togethers, it is better to orient the sofa set in a semi-circle fashion, with a center table in the middle.

Shape

After determining the primary function of the living room and the sofa set, the next step that you need to undertake is to find a sofa set shape that will help you fulfil the purpose you have in mind.

L-shaped sofa sets, for example, are a good way to divide the living room and the dining area. Round sofa sets, on the other hand, work best in small living rooms which are used to gather people.

If you want to add more tables and chairs in your living room, you might want to consider a daybed or chaise.

Upholstery

In choosing an upholstery material for your new sofa, it is important to consider both style and function. If you are drawn to a particular material, you have to bear in mind a few other factors.

For example, if you have pets and/or small children in your household, you have to consider the fact that they can damage your new sofa set. Instead of choosing a delicate material like suede, consider finding an upholstery material that is resistant to stains and spills.

Style and color

Interior designers recommend choosing a design that you are naturally inclined to. If you have done careful research on the aforementioned factors, then you have more slack when it comes to choosing a furniture design. As for colors, you can be bold and experiment with quirky designs, or if you take a more conservative approach, opt for more conventional colors.
