Choosing living room sofas is not the same sort of task as choosing dining room furniture or bedroom furniture. The fundamental reason for this is that people tend to purchase sofas individually, while bedroom and dining room furniture tend to be purchased in sets - so they match!
The higher end luxury sectional sofa beds have been designed for larger areas. There are from three to five pieces in these sectional sofas. The shapes range from a standard rectangle with ottomans, to a circular sofa that, when all pieces are together, forms a perfect circle. At the mid and low range of affordability is the 'L' shape sofa. These sofa is still a favorite for small rooms or apartments where they serve the dual function of sofa and bed on a daily basis.
It is crucial that you measure your space and work out the ideal size that your sofa needs to be. Think about how many people you need to seat regularly and where the best placement in the room would be (keeping in mind doorways and other furniture pieces). It's a great idea to measure your current sofa to get an idea or alternatively, measure out on the ground with masking tape or newspaper different sizes. This will help you visualise the item in the room and how you move around it. Secondly, even though it may fit within your required space the overall proportion will impact the look within the room. A sofa with chunkier or heavier overall proportions will appear larger in the room, whilst a sofa that is raised from the floor and has slim arms and seat proportions will appear lighter and visually consume less space. Use this to your advantage, look for heavier styles if you are looking to fill a large room and vice versa, and be aware of the impact the showroom has on the look of the sofa, in general showrooms will be very open and have high ceilings, making all sofas look smaller than they are.
