The shape, size and style of your sofas and armchairs will have a huge impact on what your room looks and feels like. Take a look at the size of your room – including the height of the ceiling – then think about what you want to put in there. For example, two small sofas will look different to one large sofa with an accent chair.
Getting the right sized sofa for your room
- Check the width, height, and depth of the sofa you would like and create a flat form out of newspaper. Alternatively, mark out the area where you would like the furniture to go using masking tape.
- When marking out where the sofa will go, remember to leave adequate space around it.
- To make sure there aren’t any “It won’t fit through the door!” moments, measure where you’re going to bring the sofa in through, as well as any staircases or hallways it will have to fit through.
