Do you want to create more space in your room?
If so, then small sofas can help to make a room appear less cramped and more spacious, ensuring that the furniture you choose won’t take over your room.On the other hand, there are many distinctive small sofas available that can act as a focal point, particularly if you choose a striking pattern or design.
Have you thought about adding extra sleeping space with sofa beds?
Small sofas are not only ideal for more compact living rooms, but they can be a perfect fit within bedrooms, too.Small sofas that double up as a bed are a great way to maximise space in a larger bedroom, as they can provide the extra sleeping space required for a visiting family to have a comfortable night’s rest. Also, if you need extra seating for guests, it is often easy to move small sofas from other rooms into your lounge.
Have you considered checking out cosy love seats?
Some sofa set ranges include the increasingly popular love seat.In the UK, love seats differ from other small sofas because, although designed to seat two people, they tend to have a single cushion, making them more like an oversized armchair. However, if you are considering small sofas and looking for a colourful statement to put the “wow” factor into a room, particularly where space is a little too restricted for standard sized small sofas, then a love seat could be a perfect addition to your home.
Using colour and pattern to brighten a neutral room…
One example of how to make a statement is to place a brightly coloured or patterned love seat with a fabric cover in a room with plain brown leather furniture.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â So long as the shapes/designs are complementary, the colours in the love seat could pull together other shades from around the room, and provide an opportunity to be creative with accessories such as cushions, footstools, vases and rugs.
Buy what you love…
As with home dÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â©cor in general, personal preference is key.However, it is worth noting that, if you choose to combine a standard 2-seater sofa with a love seat in your room, you risk lowering the impact of each.Instead, where space is too restricted for a larger sofa, it may well be better to opt for a matching pair of either small sofas or love seats, rather than a mix of the two.,/p>
Why not look online for choice and bargains?
If you look online, you will find websites that specialise in small sofas or love seats, where you are guaranteed to find a wide range of fabrics and designs at prices to suit even a smaller budget.
