Measuring your space where you plan to put the couch, first, before you shop, will help you know what will fit there when contemplating your choices. Be sure to allow for plenty of space on either side of the couch in front of it for a coffee table, if you plan to use one, as well as behind the couch if it will used as a walk space. Allow for the arm size of the sofa, too. Some sofas have larger arms than others, so be sure to include the arms, if they extend beyond the base of the couch. Remember, too, too large of a couch in a small room will leave it looking and feeling awkward, and it can quickly consume all of your space, both literally and visually.
When everything is pushed against the wall it can make things look cramped, but when furniture is centered allowing you to walk the exterior it can create the illusion of spaciousness and help the traffic flow if you have guests.
In any interior space natural light is your best friend. If you’re lucky enough to have big windows, leave them uncovered or go for long sheer curtains instead of heavy drapes in order to brighten the space, which can even benefit your health!
This may seem scary to some especially if you have kids or pets, but white walls in conjunction with white furniture and a light colored floor can majorly brighten a space. Pair your whites with other neutral tones for a clean, concise look, or be brave and go full on white by utilizing different textures and shapes to break it up.
