From family movie night to catching up with friends, your living room is just as important as the kitchen when it comes to entertaining. You want your living room to be a warm, welcoming environment for friends and family to spend time, and it needs to withstand the rigors of daily use. But with an endless amount of choices, how do you know that what you’re choosing is the right one? Follow our simple tips to find the right living room seating for your space so you can enjoy it for years to come.
- Measure your space - Before you start shopping, we recommend measuring the entire room and the space you want to place your sofa or sectional. You could even draw out where you’d want to place it with painter’s tape for a better visual.
- Keep functionality in mind - If you’re looking for something for your family room, you may want to consider a large sectional with deeper seat depth for lounging. If you’re looking for something more formal, consider a loveseat with elegant touches such as tufting. The entire look and feel of your sofa can differ depending on the intended use.
- Design for durability - This is an essential consideration when choosing any kind of seating, especially if you have pets and/or children. Look for stain-resistant materials and durable fabrics that will stand up to years of use. A sofa is one of the largest and most important pieces of furniture you will buy so you want to make sure it lasts a long time.
