If you would rather not have a sofa in your living room, you’ll be happy to know that there are other options as well. For example, you can replace the sofa with a daybed of small dimensions and also add a couple of individual armchairs. Put a coffee table in the middle and you’ll get a cozy and chic décor.
Perhaps this should be the first step when choosing a sofa. Decide where the sofa will be placed so you know what to look for. If you usually enjoy sitting in front of the TV then that’s where you should place the sofa. But perhaps you enjoy entertaining guests and chatting with them in which case you should create a cozy lounge area in front of the fireplace or facing the bar. Be careful however because placing a sofa parallel to the fireplace in a long and narrow room can make the room even narrower.
When deciding on the size of the sofa, you need to take into consideration a variety of aspects. For example, look at the whole room and figure out how much space are you willing to let the sofa occupy and whether or not there are other pieces of furniture that you need to include there. Perhaps you’d also like to have a couch in the room or a coffee table.
The sofa is the center of any living room, the furniture piece around which the whole décor is being created. It’s why it has to perfectly integrate in the room. The color is very important. The color you choose for the sofa can either match the rest of the décor in its general lines or it can coordinate with certain key elements. It can also be the one piece that stands out without having to match anything. But let’s take a look at some examples of sofas and living rooms to better picture this image.
