The living room is where the family gathers to play games, watch TV and movies, and catch up on each other’s lives. The couch is often the center of the room, where everyone finds a cozy spot before the movie starts or where you nestle in before watching several episodes of your favorite show on Netflix. Having the right couch can make your living room the comfortable, inviting space you want it to be, and the wrong one can make it difficult to spend a prolonged period of time in there. At Wettstein’s in La Crosse, we can help you choose the best sofa for your home.
What Size Do You Need?
This is perhaps the most important thing to think about when choosing a new couch, as one that’s too big can overwhelm the room and one that’s too small may not provide enough seating. Once you’ve measured your living room, think about what else you want in the space besides the couch. Will have you a few chairs or a coffee table? The size of your new couch can dictate what other furniture will fit in the room, and if you want a large sectional with plush cushions, you may have to get rid of an end table or two.
Where Will the Couch Be Placed?
Once you know what size and configuration of couch you want, it’s time to decide where it will be placed in the room. Will it sit against the wall or will it divide the room in half? Will it help form a seating area around a coffee table or artistic centerpiece? If it’s going to be facing the TV on the wall, make sure you can position it far enough away for optimal viewing angles.
By this time you most likely know what color and type of fabric your couch will be, and if you do, you can begin picking out accents such as throw pillows and blankets. If your couch will primarily be for sitting on while watching TV, adding a few pillows and blankets can make it that much more comfortable. If your living room will be used for get togethers, you may want to keep the pillows and blankets to a minimum so you can maximize your seating and people won’t have to move things out of the way in order to sit on the couch.
