I usually recommend starting with the largest and most expensive item, which, in the case of a living room or family room, is usually the sofa.

It's important to chose the right sofa style and size for your design.

One of the downsides of IKEA products is that, unless you want to spend more on IKEA‘s furniture building service, you must assemble it yourself.

The cushions come vacuum sealed and require two to three days to inflate fully before they can be used and the sofa cover must be ironed which is no small task.

Take a deep breath and know it´s all for the greater good of your home. With so many options available, spending time on your search is the best way to ensure you love the couch you choose — and prevent settling. The worst part of buying a couch online: taking a chance on your comfort. If possible, it never hurts to take a trip to the showroom for a quick lay-down on the sofa you‘ve selected. But for most online retailers, there‘s no showroom.

Make sure that you are getting high-density foam because lesser-quality foam can start breaking down pretty quickly, causing sags, and the fabric does not stay taut when that happens. If you want a really soft seat, consider down cushions. These are considered to be the premium choice, and as you might imagine they are also among the most expensive. High-quality cushions have down-proof ticking under the upholstery fabric to prevent feathers from poking through. Cushions filled just with down are high-maintenance and can need daily attention.

A sofa of any color can be beautifully integrated into your space if you treat it as another color from your color scheme. This means adding accessories or prints in the same color as the sofa, to spread the color around the room. A sofa is a large expanse of fabric, by repeating pops of the same color as an accent, it can balance your room.

These events are often centered around major holidays or long weekends and can dramatically decrease the price you pay. Stores frequently hold smaller sales, too: once you've got all the details picked out, consider pausing your purchase and checking the site´s homepage on a daily basis. You may just find a fantastic deal.

Mirrors are important decorative tools.They reflect light, they open up spaces, and they just make rooms look better in general. Above a sofa can be a great place to hang a large mirror, but keep in mind that whenever possible mirrors should be hung across from windows or something else that‘s visually appealing.

As a general rule, you don’t want to place a sofa in front of a door because you don’t want to block it, and you don't want people to walk into the back of the sofa. However, if there's enough space and the back of the sofa has nice upholstery, this look can work very well. But it´s imperative that there be enough space to still have a comfortable traffic path. You also want to make sure to minimize any potential of visual obstructions. So if there´s any doubt, don‘t do it.
