Living Room / October 13, 2018 / Giuliana Bundy.
When you decide to give your living room a new look, the easiest way to do this is by changing the furniture. If you don’t have the budget to change everything, then probably the best way to create an impact is to improve the sofa and armchairs for a new collection of seating. Moreover, these are the most used pieces of furniture in the room, so will probably be most in need of an update.
Fortunately, there are multiple selections of sofas to choose from today, whether you buy online or on the high street. Also, there are always plenty of sofa sales on, too, so it’s possible to pick up a bargain any time of year.
If you’re looking for a leather sofa, you won’t have to go to a specialist supplier like in the old days. It’s sometimes harder to find fabric sofas as leather sofas are now so popular. The reason for their appeal is apparent. Leather sofas hold their shape well and always look smart. The leather can be wiped down with a damp cloth if anything gets spilled on it or if the children leave sticky finger marks on it and it rarely stains.
However, that doesn’t mean to say you should avoid fabric sofas. Many of the fabric sofas in today’s shops have been pre-treated to be stain-resistant. The only thing you might decide to do is to avoid a light colored fabric, which could potentially be ruined by one glass of red wine.
Decide on which seating you are going to have first, and then pick a color that will complement your furniture in the living room. If you have chosen a bold color for your sofa, then it’s probably wise to pick a neutral shade for the walls. Too many strong colors in the room will make it less of a relaxing place to be.
