Factors to consider when choosing furniture for your living room

by Valerie Flores 31 Aug 2022

Choosing new furniture for your living room is fun and exciting. Whether you have just moved in or just fancy a refresh, thinking about new furniture can get your creative juices flowing. However it is important to plan before you buy because you need to be sure that your new furniture is right for your home.

So let’s take a look at some of the most important factors you need to consider when choosing furniture for your living room.

Size: When it comes to choosing new living room furniture, size really does matter. Check out your available space and most importantly of all, take measurements.

Measure the walls, the door space and the floor space and consider any pieces of furniture that are staying. Once you know how much space you have for your new items, it will help you find them.

If you don’t measure the space you may find that your new living room furniture is just too big to fit into your room. Whether you are shopping online or in store, it is impossible to judge the size if you don’t have accurate measurements.

Color and style: It is a good idea to have a look in mind before you buy. So consider the color of the curtains, the flooring, the wall colors and the overall style you are going for, otherwise you may have to redecorate the whole room in order for your new piece of furniture to fit in.

Even a jumbled kitsch style requires planning so try to keep your look cohesive and don’t be swayed by a fabulous looking furniture piece that is going to clash with everything else.

Comfort:  if you are buying a new sofa or chairs it is important that they are comfortable otherwise nobody will want to even spend time in the living room even if it does look showroom good. The whole point of a living room is that it is a cozy hang out for all the family so comfort is a crucially important factor. If you are buying online check out the materials used in the construction for a better idea of comfort.

All the extras! : When we think of new living room furniture, we tend to imagine sofas and chairs but these are only part of the story. You also need to consider the TV, a TV stand, a place to put down cups such as a coffee table, the lighting and a book case perhaps or a music system?  Whatever your particular requirements make sure you include them in your plans for your living room in order to create your perfect space.

Budget: It is easy to run way over budget if you fail to plan in advance. So make sure you know how much you have to spend on your new living room before you even start shopping. If you don’t, you could end up spending more than you can afford.
