Three Tips for Choosing the Right Contemporary Couches for Sale

Looking to embrace the modern world with a striking, contemporary couch? Whether you want to admit it or not, the couch is the most important piece of living room furniture. Not only is it the focal point of your living room space, but it’s also an indicator of your style and values. But let’s be honest, choosing a couch today is not easy. With so many different styles, where does one start? To get the best couch for your buck, follow these three steps.

#1 Room Size Matters

Usually, the size of your couch will depend on the size of your room. So, first and foremost, start with your room’s size and shape. If it is large and you plan to include additional chairs, a coffee table, and maybe a side table or two, then an L-shape sectional might be the best fit. On the other hand, if the space is small, you can’t go wrong with a mid-century two- to three-seater.

#2 Will it be Leather, Vinyl, or Fabric?

Investing in a couch is a big deal; not only is it expensive, but it’s that one piece of furniture where you really want to make the right statement, which is why you really need to get the upholstery right. Will it be leather, vinyl, or fabric? To answer this, you’ll need to consider your lifestyle, your design style, and the amount of traffic your couch is going to see each day. Whereas leather is expensive, it is a material that can easily last 30 years if looked after properly. However, should you be on a limited budget, vinyl is a brilliant replica of leather and it costs a fraction of the price. When it comes to art-deco textiles, the market is flooded with an endless variety of colours, textures, and patterns. Should you be concerned about the effects of dogs and children, consider choosing a darker colour fabric with removable covers. Ultimately, when all is said and done, what it really comes down to is personal preference.

#3 Choose a Style that Complements Your Personality and Lifestyle

Now that you’ve determined the room size and upholstery of choice, it’s time to make a decision on the style. If you’re a young executive or a couple on the go, then a two- or three-seater mid-century loveseat or Chesterfield may be just perfect for you. However, should you have a big family, a modular L-sectional should make a brilliant choice.
