A 2 seater couch is often the focal point of a room, so it is a challenge to choose the perfect one for your decor. Although there is a wide variety of 2 seater sofas available, particularly here at Chaise Sofas, finding the perfect match can be a complicated process. So, here we’ll explore how you can choose one to suit your decor to make your purchase decision a little easier.
Light or Dark?
The first thing you need to consider is whether you want a light or dark sofa. The tone of your sofa matters as it is the focal point of your room and it will draw lots of attention. However, you want your new sofa to stand out for all the right reasons rather than sticking out like a sore thumb. You will need to consider all the other elements in your room to choose whether a light or dark shade would be best suited to your decor. For example, look at the colour of your flooring; if you have darker floors, a lighter sofa is likely to look best. A dark sofa on darker flooring will make the room appear dark. However, you can opt for this combination if you plan to lighten up the room aesthetics with throw rugs and cushions.
Contrasting or Matching?
You also need to consider whether you want to create a contrasting or matching effect. One of the reasons why neutral colours are a popular choice for sofas is that they are easy to contrast with virtually any colour scheme or decor. Neutral shades such as beige, white or grey can work well with bold shades or softer colours, but you do need to take care that the overall look isn’t dull. Fortunately, you can add visual interest by choosing a sofa fabric with some texture.
If you prefer a contrasting look, you can choose a dark sofa to contrast with your lighter colours. You will need to decide on which colours will be the main focus for your decor and look at which shades will provide the best contrast.
Consider Your Lighting
Finally, you need to think about the lighting in your room. If your room has lots of natural light, a light sofa or very delicate pattern can look washed out. However, if your room lacks light, adding a dark sofa can make the room feel even darker. You also need to think about how light exposure will impact your choice of fabric. If your new sofa will be near a window, you need to consider how the sunlight may cause fading, particularly with patterns. You won’t want that bold print to look as new on one end of your sofa while the other end seems washed out and faded. Additionally, you need to think about how your choice of sofa will look after dark when you switch on your lighting, so you can be sure of a consistent look at any time of the day or night.
