How to choose the perfect sofa for your home
When you choose a sofa you want to know that it’ll still look great in ten years time, but you also need to make sure it fits the style you currently have in your home.
If you want to pick the ideal sofa for your space then follow these tips to find the perfect sofa style for you:
Choosing a sofa
A quick look online will show you that there are thousands of different sofas to choose from out there, but it can be hard to know where to start.
The most important thing about any sofa is how it will be used, so consider the type of use your sofa is likely to get before beginning your search.
For active families
If you have a busy family life then a big, comfy couch is a must. You want the whole family to be able to sit together comfortably, so pick something you can sink into easily.
Corner sofas are great for families because they provide plenty of seating and you can find lots of easily cleanable fabrics like leather so you won’t have to worry about spills.
Or you could choose sofas with removable covers so they can be easily washed. You can even change the covers to match the seasons.
For guest rooms
A sofa bed is a great option for guest rooms because it can be used when needed, meaning your room can be used for another purpose when you don’t have guests.
For contemporary tastes
If you like to be at the cutting edge of fashion and practicality, then a sectional sofa could be the perfect choice. You can take your seating apart and arrange it any way you like, offering you the highest level of versatility.
For those with modern homes, sectional sofas in bold colours are a great choice and look great in contemporary spaces.
The traditional look
If you want your sofa to be comfortable but still inject some character into your living room, then choose a traditional design like a Davenport or Chesterfield style sofa.
Traditional sofas work well in modern homes and you can bring them up-to-date by choosing a neutral colour. This will make the space seem bigger and you can use cushions and throws to inject colour if desired.
If you want to create the ultimate space for kicking back and watching TV, then a reclining sofa is the only option. They’re easy to use and the ideal spot to watch movies on your widescreen TV.
Choose a luxurious leather design to give your room style and practicality and make sure it is positioned so that the reclining function can be used to the best of its ability.
Once you’ve considered how you want your sofa to be used, it’s easy to narrow down your search for the perfect seating. You can find a great range of Harveys sofas with styles and sizes to suit every room, so take some time to shop around before you make your final decision.Follow @CaerphillyObsvr
