What a Couch Says About a Room – Furniture Selection Tips

Some interior designers in Winter Park will design an entire room, or even an entire home around a couch. They’ll use it as their center stage, the piece that everything else will be tied to in order to create a desired look.

There’s a lot to say about that. You could assume that this is just because the couch is typically the largest piece in the room, but there is a lot that goes into selecting a couch.

Let’s take a look about what a couch says about a room, and how to select the one that’s right for your space.

Buying a sofa is a major investment, especially if you want to buy a sofa that will last long and keep it;s style!

Why is A Couch An Important Part of Your Home Furniture

Because the couch is often the centerpiece from which everything else is built around, it often draws the eye. But what does it say after it’s captured a gaze?

For one, it speaks to your style- whether you like simple, sleek lines with little clutter, or more organized and fun chaos with a bohemian look.

How to Choose a Couch That Reflects Your Style:

There are several things you want to consider when selecting a couch. After all, it’s a large investment, and the rest of the room depends on the right selection.

First, consider space.

How much space are you trying to fill? How much space is even available. You’ll want to take careful measurements before you even start looking.

Next, think about design.

What is your style. Do you want patterns? Color? Or something modern? Try to narrow it down, because it will help you in your search.

Other major considerations are:

  • Comfort
  • Sectional or standalone?
  • No arms? Tall arms?
  • What kind of filling?
  • Seat depth
  • Fabric (cotton velvet is a fail safe)

Pro Tip for Choosing a Couch

We always recommend that you shop for your comfort. When you visit the furniture store try out the couch, even lie on it. When you choose a couch you want to make sure you are always comfortable.

Shop around, get quotes and play stores off each other, but stay loyal to one salesperson. Make them feel important and they will reward you. Ask for them by name and even go so far as to make appointments with them. Let them show you around and be open with them about what you want, but never gush over anything. Sales people resent rejection and it’s important to treat them with respect. That’s the difference between good interior decorators and great interior decorators in Central Florida.
