A piece this important should be comfortable and speak to your unique style. Luckily, Raymour & Flanigan has a wide range of sofas to help you find exactly what you’re looking for.
Finding the perfect sofa style
A few characteristics that differ between sofa styles are:
- Shape and height of arms
- Wooden leg styles
- Attached or loose cushions
In addition to these features, you have a whole range of fabrics available for your couch upholstery that can customize your look even more. Keeping these elements in mind, it’s easy to start narrowing down the sofa that best fits your home.
How to choose the right size sofa
You also want to consider how the size of a sofa will affect the balance of your room. Large pieces that block windows or stick out past a wall will make a space feel cramped. As a general rule, your sofa shouldn’t take up an entire wall. Aim for around 18″ on either side of your sofa to help your living room look its best.
If you’re decorating a small apartment, you might decide your space can’t handle a full-size sofa. Consider substituting a loveseat and a few accent chairs to get the same amount of seating with a smaller footprint.
Kid- and pet-friendly fabrics
Leather sofas are also good for pets because dirt and hair can easily be wiped up. However, you do have to be wary of your pet’s claws potentially scratching the leather. In a rustic style living room, a few scratches could enhance a leather sofa’s weathered look, but it’s something to keep in mind when you’re furniture shopping.
Finding the right sofa doesn’t have to be hard. With plenty of choices online or in a Raymour & Flanigan showroom, we’re sure to have just the couch you’re looking for. Take a look today and you’ll soon be lounging in style for your next movie marathon!
