Sofa is one important element in our homes.Generally, we use sofa in a fairly long period of time between 5 to 10 years. Because of the price is not cheap and use a fairly long time, then we should choose the right sofa according to the theme and design of the room and in accordance with our personality. Here are a few things to consider to choose the right sofa.
  1. Selection of the sofa should be tailored to the function room. Sofa that accommodates the needs of the living room, with 2 or 3 pieces. As for the family room, it can be chosen in the form of single pieces, more spacious, without dividers, perfect for creating intimacy between family members.
  2. Size of the sofa should be adjusted to the size of the room, if you have narrow space just use small-sized sofa / small with a simple form. Because if you forced to use a large sofa, it will reduce the space of the room so that the other furniture had to be removed. Make sure you have measured the room where the sofa will be placed. Do not forget to leave a space around the couch if you want to put a small table (side table). 60cm wide space provided for this corner desk.
  3. Before buying the sofa, make sure the sofa is fitted with the theme of the interior or even a theme / style of architecture of your home. If the room has been existed then you should follow the existing color theme and the room. Meanwhile, if the sofa is made for a new room so you can more freely choose a theme and color of the room. For example if your house has ultra modern contemporary or minimalist style, the selection of sofas with leather and wood composites may not be suitable for your room. Meanwhile, if your house has a modern homage to art deco, Mediterranean or Victorian style then you can use a large sofa, with a mixture of various materials, and glossy dark-colored so it gives the impression of luxury.
  4. The color of the sofa usually depends on the owner's taste, as a material consideration in choosing a color of the sofa is: color sofa white or bright colors such as red is usually quickly look dull or dirty, while a dark color like dark brown or black may not be eye catching but more obscured than dirt. But in general, it is recommended to choose neutral colors like white, black, beige, khaki, or gray, because the colors are very easily paired with other colors in the room. These colors are also last a long time against the trends that come and go.
  5. The quality of materials should be your priority, some sofas are made with genuine leather material or synthetic material as well. In general, fabric sofa can be divided into two kinds. Some are made from cotton or materials also chennyle. Chennyle material is a material that is currently the trend. Unlike the usual cotton and polyester, materials chennyle has velvety soft fur. This material has many beautiful patterns pihan. Note also the quality of springs and foam rubber to avoid your sofa "oversize" at a later date.
