Look at your color. If you have existing carpet, rugs, drapes, or other existing living room furniture in the room, youll want to take that into account so that your new living room furniture matches well. Some furniture stores have you order the furniture so that you are able to take a swatch of the fabric with you to see how it looks with your existing color. Of course, you can always paint a room if youre going for a new look anyway. You can even take photos of what you have now on a digital camera or phone to bring with you when you are buying new living room furniture. Modern or traditional? With so many styles of furniture, it can be a challenge to decide what style of furniture to go with. Modern style is usually described as clean lines, with solid colors, glass and metal, traditional can take a wide range from colorful prints and plaids and lots of wood, and country can be leathers and woods with brass accents. That doesnt mean that modern and traditional dont feature leather or that country doesnt have glass, but those are the typical features.
Once you have a rough idea of the colors involved, and the general period of furniture you will require, you can select that furniture from the large selection available from American furniture companies such as Stickley, Southwood, Sherrill and Simply Amish.Make your selection of furniture, choose rugs to suit your overall decorative theme, and then the lamps, mirrors and other accent pieces. You can put all of these together to create a fabulous living room. A holistic approach to living room furniture involves more than just furnishing, but also an appreciation of accessories an accent pieces such as occasional tables, curio cabinets, rugs and more - but it is well worth the work involved.
A lot depends on the size of your living room. If you are short of space then a sectional sofa is likely better, because you can then use a corner of the room to connect two longer pieces of sofa by means of a wedge. That is making the best use of the space available to you, and avoids cluttering up a small room with large pieces of furniture in the middle of the floor. Also, buy the best quality you can with the budget you are working to. This is where living room furniture sets will pay, because sets are often more economical than purchasing the items individually. You can purchase living room furniture sets comprising two sofas and a connecting corner piece, or a sofa and two lounge or arm chairs. If you have children, a sofa in a hard wearing fabric might be better initially than leather.
