When designing a living room set, we believe in starting with the sofa. It can be an anchor of any room and will make the décor much easier. Not convinced? Here are three reasons why you should design a living room around the sofa, making it the focal point.
The sofa can set the style of the room. Are you planning on creating a classic or modern living room? Do you want to keep things simple or prefer mix and matching different styles? As it is such a big furniture piece, if you choose first, it will help you set the rest of the décor.
If you buy the sofa first, you are able to see how much space in the room you have left. What if you buy every piece of furniture and leave the sofa for the end only to realize it doesn’t fit? Instead, look at your space, decide where in the room you want to put it and how big the sofa can be.
Now that the biggest piece of furniture is out of your way, you can start thinking about the other pieces that will complement it.
Colour plays an important role in the overall look of a living room. What if you do the full décor but then fall in love with a colourful sofa that doesn’t go with it? If you pick a sofa you love, it will then inspire you to create a gorgeous living room furniture set around it.
