Choose the Correct Size – 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.
One of the most beautiful living rooms I have ever been in had a bright red, large, rectangular area rug in the middle of the golden oak floor. The red rug was stunning and simple, but brought energy to an otherwise nondescript room. Utilizing color on your living room floor will change the way your living room feels.

You may find that the rug provides a base of an entire decorating scheme, or perhaps you already have a decorating theme that you love and a colored rug will finish off the room. In the room I remembered with the bright red rug, they built the decorations around the red rug. Patriotic decor hung on the walls and red pillows sat on darker couches. They even found a coordinating oversized red chair that they bought to go along with the rug. The brightly colored rug freed them to make other bold choices in a room that was not structurally special but because of the decorating theme became visually spectacular.
Comfort and Style – We have yet to mention comfort, and it is debatable when discussing living room furniture whether style or comfort is the more important. It is likely the latter, but with style a close second which makes the choice harder. You often have to visit a showroom to try a couch by sitting in it, although many do successfully purchase sofas online. As you are likely aware, sofas come in many styles, fabrics, materials and colors, and you consequently have a wide range from which to choose the one that suits you the best. Before you even get that far you first have to decide on what type of sofa or couch you want.
The point being made here is that when choosing living room sofas for your lounge, or any other room for that matter, you have to have an eye for design and what would go well with your existing furniture. People purchase dining room sets and sets of bedroom furniture, but not living room sets as such. So keep that in mind as you read, and particularly when the time comes for you to purchase a new living room sofa or even a chair.
