Durability is another factor to be considered while buying a living room sofa. If you are buying a sofa for a formal living room and will be rarely using it, you will most probably prefer the stylish sofa. However, if you are going to extensively use the sofa, then the color and fabric of the sofa is also to be considered. Especially when you have children or pets at home, it is most likely that the sofa will be stained.
Before buying a living room sofa, make sure that you have measured the area of your room where you will be placing your sofa. However, if you have decided to transform your room completely, then it would be helpful to take measurements of the whole living room. You might have an idea of placing the sofa against the wall but what if you change your mind later on? A perfectly sized sofa will adjust itself to any corner of the room. A large over sized sofa will cramp up a small room whereas a small sofa would go unnoticed in a big room.
Now think about what you actually need, and what you might desire to have space for - in other words, separate your needs from your wants. For instance, you might need space for a sofa, TV and music, lighting and a coffee table and sideboard. You might want space for toys and books, DVD and CD storage and your hi-fi speakers. What you can actually fit into your room will depend on the size and shape of the space you have. You may have to be ruthless in your choices - it is important to obtain a balance between the areas taken up with furniture and open areas you use for access around the room.
Modern living room furniture would be absolutely incomplete without a pretty centre table. Do not opt for a huge and heavy wooden table; instead go for a small glass table, big enough to carry trays of food and drinks. Wooden coffee tables also make for great options but make sure you team them up with nice table runners as you don’t want the food or snacks to damage your table. A Christmas table runner can add the much needed pop of colour. You can place a lovely vase in the centre of the table to give it a more sophisticated look.
