Once you decide if your sofa will be an accent or neutral color, you'll need to decide if your sofa will be light or dark. Your floor color has a big effect on choosing the right sofa color. If you´re considering a potential sofa sitting on your floor, will it float on a sea of dark wood flooring or carpet or will it blend into it? Since a sofa is traditionally large and upholstered, and most fabric absorbs light, it can darken a room considerably.
Don´t forget accent pillows and throws as the finishing touches when coordinating your new sofa with your room decor. These little pops of color give your living room that pulled-together look. A sofa is made up of many different parts. And all these different parts can vary from sofa to sofa, giving each a distinct look and feel.
However, before you even go shopping for a sofa, think about your own personal style and what would be a good match for your home. Consider size and scale, and never forget to measure. Color and fabric selection matters a lot, and choosing the right color, texture, pattern are all parts of fabric selection. After all, most sofa selections are made on the basis of fabric alone.
