Helpful Tips To Buy Sofas In Best Colors
The sofa is the heart of the living room and the way it is upholstered speaks a lot about your personality. A nice sofa-sectional upholstered in vibrant luxury fabric can easily become the focal point of any room.
If you plan to add your sofa to an already decorated room, then choosing the color becomes all the more important. When choosing a new sofa, you will need to decide if the color should be neutral, or if it will take on an accent role in the room’s décor.
While buying a sofa-sectional, keep in mind that it shouldn't become the center of attraction but should complement the other décor of the room. Also, it shouldn't get camouflaged into the wall color. Neutral sofa colors are the most popular and suit a variety of homes.
Light or Dark Sofa
Once you decide whether your sofa would take the center stage in your room’s décor or simply blend into the existing décor, then you need to focus now if it should be in a light or dark shade. The floor color is an important determinant in choosing the right sofa color. Since sofas are upholstered and large, and most fabrics absorb light; they can darken a room considerably.
A dark sofa on a dark floor will ‘disappear’, so focus on other elements to make it visible, like metal or light wood legs, which can create some visual space. A lighter color rug under the sofa can also separate the dark colors and make the sofa color pop.
When it comes to light-colored sofas, the biggest challenge is staining and wear. If you have kids and pets at home, then you would probably not want to put a white sofa in your living room, without some serious retraining.
Color as Per Your Needs
If your sofa isn’t something you need for your visitor's attention, then a neutral color would make a great choice. These colors are easy to decorate, and can easily keep up with your style.
Neutral sofa fabric includes colors like beige, gray, taupe, and cream. A monochromatic one can create interest without adding new colors. Grays look sophisticated, comfortable, and cool. Neutral sofas can easily complement any décor, and still look stylish and attractive.
While buying a sofa, always look for a matching loveseat, or upholstered chairs to complement it. Using chairs over loveseat gives more opportunities to add color from your chosen color palette and more options for furniture placement. Add the perfect finishing touch with accent pillows and throws.
