Many designers consider the sofa to be the center of the living room, so its location should be given special attention. First of all, it is necessary to take into account the area of the room, as well as the type of sofa itself. For example, if the sofa has an angular design, then it can be located only in the corner of the room. Such furniture can not be placed in the middle of the room or along the wall, as this will not only not look harmonious, but interfere with its incorrect location.
The same applies to sofas with a U-shape. They are completely unsuitable for central placement or along the wall. U-shaped sofa occupies three sides of the "guest zone", or one wall, and also partially affects the other two. In the same way, you can arrange a sofa with two armchairs, thus creating a zone for conversations.
The place where the sofa will be placed, you must choose before buying it. It is necessary to think in advance how to make the most rational use of space, while doing this so that the furniture fits perfectly into the design of the room. Not every sofa can be correctly placed in a particular room, this should be considered when choosing the type of its design.
It is not recommended to buy an oversized sofa if the area of the room is small. In this case, it will not be possible to choose a suitable place, since in any case the room will be cluttered. The sofa will block the walkways, so it will be inconvenient to use it. A correctly selected sofa size is an important stage for its most competent placement.
If the room is medium or small in size, do not place the sofa in the center, even if its shape provides such an opportunity. It is best if the sofa will be along the wall, or in the corner. In a very narrow room, it is best to choose a U-shaped sofa, as visually it can soften the room. In a very spacious room, it is not recommended to place the sofa in the corners or against the wall, as this creates a feeling of emptiness. In such rooms, island-type sofas look most appropriate.
The sofa can be located not only in the living room, but also in any other room. For example, in the nursery or in the kitchen. Moreover, the rules for its placement are exactly the same. The correct arrangement of the sofa helps to adjust the appearance of the room and make its design the most attractive.
