As homes get smaller, storage becomes more and more important, and people are starting to use every available bit of space to display their trinkets and treasures. Shelving placed above a sofa can be a great way to solve a storage issue and creatively display your accessories. Floating shelves are a great option, as are shelves with attractive brackets. Just make sure they’re installed correctly so they don't fall on anyone sitting on the couch!
Going to such expense is only be worthwhile under a few conditions, and here they are: If the sofa has been in your family for a while and has been a prized possession with a history and special sentimental value, you may want to hold on to it. There are certain things which are irreplaceable, and you cannot put a monetary value on them.
Test many different styles, and make sure to try them out in a way you would use a sofa at home. Do you like to sit with your legs curled up? Do you like to lie down on it? Do you feel happiest sitting in the center? Consider the height and depth of the seat. For taller people, it is best to have deeper seats. If you find it hard to rise from a seated position, try a shallower seat.
