Sofa Picks For Modern Home Designs
Is your living room stuck in the past? Are you looking for a way to blast your living room design into the 21st Century? Getting modern with your living room means taking a turn toward minimalism in design. Of course even the most minimally designed rooms still need the right furniture. You just can’t have a living room without a couch. Streamlined and sparse are the goals when going modern or post-modern in your design plans. Here are some tips to get you moving in the right direction.
One of the big design mistakes that people make when going for a more modern approach is to sacrifice comfort for style. There is no need to get this drastic. Keep comfort as a main priority. Think about how much time you spend on your couch before you jump into any purchase. Think soft, clean, and comfortable. The sofa is one piece of furniture that you don’t want to skimp on. For smaller, more cramped living rooms, a two-seat couch or love-seat may be the right way to go. No matter if you go for a sectional or a love-seat, buy for comfort and looks.
Keeping comfort squarely in mind, consider style. Modern designs should feature cool, attractive patterns and clean, pleasing lines. Stay with a neutral colour. Many people gravitate toward floral designs or pastel colours for couch choices. You are trying to develop a look that screams functionality and comfort.
Leather furniture is the one holdover from classic designs that still works well in modern designs. Leather is a classic for sofas; easy to clean, comfortable and tame colours make leather a good choice nearly every time. It is more expensive, but since your sofa is the focal point of your living room, spend the extra money to make it great.
A deep, dark leather couch is the perfect start to a modern living room design. You don’t have to go with leather for every piece of furniture, just work from the sofa colour and develop a pleasing, somewhat neutral colour scheme. Dark colours are especially attractive and tend to make people feel more relaxed and at home. Comfort and clean lines along with functionality makes a leather couch the perfect start for your modern living room redesign.
