1. Corner Sofas: These family‐friendly designs offer flexible seating options. Stretch out‐in comfort on a sofa with a chaise end or select one with a matching footstool that can be moved around as needed. Modular sofas with individual left–also right–hand pieces corners as well as armless sections could be rearranged as you wish or separated to be used as chairs. Opting for different fabric covers for the discrete sections could look stunning.
To check that the sofa isn't too large and won´t block your way through the room or interfere with the opening of a door. Cut out plus tape together a newspaper template of the form of the sofa with lay it on the floor. But bear in mind that this won‘t give a true idea of the sofa’s bulk.
If you're shopping for a version with a sofa bed option, test the mechanism in store to make sure it´s easy to operate together with that. When it‘s closed you can’t feel the bed frame through the seat cushions. If you intend to provide your own fabric check its suitability with your furniture‐supplier first.
2. Footstools: Go for contrast. An upholstered footstool is great for adding pattern in-conjunction with colour to a neutral scheme. Unlike a sofa is easy to re―cover or replace if you want a change. To "obtain" extra storage choose an ottoman and which is simply a footstool with a lid or hollow interior.
A design with legs would have an elegant look that's great for smaller rooms. Solid legs suit a rustic and country feel also while turned legs with castors are classic also stylish as are X‐frame supports. Metal legs have contemporary appeal. A large footstool could double up as a coffee table as well as is an perfect option for using with L–shaped sofas.
3. Small Sofas: Even when buying a small sofa and consider the access to your living room. Measure the height plus width of doorways with note any "tricky" turns in passageways or on stairs. Some styles come with removable‐arms or legs that could be attached once delivered and which helps if the access is tight. Take correct measurements together with if in any doubt and show photos of the space to the salesperson in store.
