Choosing a sofa in your living area is more than just a practical choice, as it can also influence the aesthetics of the entire room. This is why it is important for it to have the right color and not just the right size or characteristics. After all, you want to enter a living room that is pleasant and doesn’t look chaotic. Also, considering that you are not buying a sofa too often, you probably want to get the one that suits your needs perfectly and fits into your living you. So, are you tempted to get a sofa with an out-of-the-ordinary design or color? Well, do think well before you make such a choice, as your sofa may soon go out of fashion and you’ll be stuck with it. To avoid this from happening, here are some valuable pieces of advice that will help you choose the right sofa color for your living room.
- What is the current status of your living room?
In other words, are you looking for a sofa to fit in a living room that is already furnished and decorated? Or you have a living room that is like a blank canvas, waiting to receive your creativity? When the room is not furnished and finished, it is easy to get any kind of sofa you like and simply finish the room around it, so everything will look in harmony. But, when the room is already furnished and simply waits for a sofa to complete it, things change a little. In this case, you will need to have in mind the color of the flooring. If you choose a sofa with a different color than the floor of the living room, then you will make the sofa pop out, which is not that great in most cases as it will disturb the balance within the room. For example, if you have flooring with a light color, this Duresta Connaught Medium Sofa in Brianza Velvet Mole would work great.
But, in case you prefer warm colors and have a flooring with a caramel-like color, then seriously consider getting this Cairness – Torino Chestnut. If you have the sofa in a matching color with the flooring, you don’t have to worry about the existing curtains, rugs, or chain in the room, as it doesn’t have to match them as well.
- Think well before choosing the main color of the entire room
If you have to remodel the entire living room, then you will need to seriously consider the main color that will dress this space, as it will also influence the color of the sofa. This is why it is recommended to get your hands on some fabric swatches, so you will have the possibility to imagine how things will look in your living room while you’re there, and not at the shop. Also, don’t hesitate to create a sort of scrapbook with pictures cut from magazines and everything you consider inspiring. Just do your best to envision how your living room will look in the end, with the selected wall color and flooring, and with the furnishing and sofa in their places. In case you are not too adventurous and would like to stay away from color games, you can always opt for neutral colors, like this gorgeous Edward Leather Sofa- Galveston Slate.
Still, if you know exactly how your dream living room would look like and you know what color you prefer, then don’t hesitate to go for it. In this case, make sure to get swatches that are darker and lighter than your favorite color as well, just to make sure that you’ll find the best color shade.
- What kind of room would you like to enjoy?
You need to bear in mind that the colors you will choose will influence the way the living room will look day after day. So, would you like an oasis of calm, a room that appears bigger than it is, or a room full of life and energy? Light colors are ideal if you want to visually enhance the space and make it look bigger. At the same time, light colors give you a feeling of peace and calmness, so they are great if you want to relax in the living after a long and hard day. This Skye Grand Sofa – Harris Tweed Wick Herringbone Silver Darling will not just blend with the rest of the room, but will also create a tranquil atmosphere.
On the other hand, brighter and stronger colors will boost the energy of the room, making the living area ideal for social gatherings and entertainment. In this case, you could spice up things with this Florentina 3 Seater Sofa, which is modern and refined at the same time.
