Talk To A Designer

7351851298

Big drawing-room takes a lot of strength and dedication from your brain, your body and from your pocket evenly.

You just can’t leave some space empty in your drawing-room, after all, it tells your guests how well maintained you are.

When you design your guest room or drawing-room, the sofa is an attraction itself along with the curtains. We will talk about them some other day.

The best thing in my living room is the Sofa. When we were designing our drawing-room. It just fitted in and filled all the empty space like it was the only missing piece in our room gallery.

TIP: Please never put a cover on your modern sofa, they are meant to be coverless.

What did I do?

I took Ideas from the western home decor.

They were filled with nice wall artwork along with a cool peaceful paint color. A center table with a showpiece on it, carpet on the floor. While a light lamp in one corner and a showpiece in another.

These were just ideas until we decided to implement them.

The first step was to buy a sofa, believe me, curtains impress very little. 

We have a big drawing-room which was very hard to fill but the sofa I chose was L shaped sectional sofa.

Perfect for any gathering, be it a small one with 2-3 people or be it a party with 9-10 people, it could fit everyone anytime.

Before moving further to select the best, I want to tell my readers what sectional sofa is exactly.

A sectional sofa is also known as L shaped sofa which has separate cushions for every person. Since not all sectional sofa has this so don’t be confused when you see a sectional sofa with one plain cushion or two cushions. 

Look at the pictures below to understand better.

Examples of sectional sofa:

3 seater sectional sofa with 3 separate seats or 2 separate seats


4 seater sectional sofa with 3 separate seats, 2 separate seats


6 seater sectional sofa without seats and with seats


Types of sectional sofa

Left-hand facing sectional sofa: they have an extra seat or section on the left-hand side.
Right-hand facing sectional sofa: they have an extra seat or section on the right-hand side.


Maintenance/Care

This is different for every type of material of the sofa.

Wooden Sofa

Wooden sofa is quite delicate when it comes to keeping it fresh as new. It has to be cleaned daily to keep the polish shine so as to add the beauty to your room like it is supposed to.

The best way I suggest is never using water or wet cloth, just using a dry cloth to rub gently once a day.

Fiber Sofa

Nothing works better than a vacuum cleaner when it comes to dealing with fiber sofa. Though Vacuum cleaner is the only best option because dust is filled inside the pores of the fabric which if not cleaned thoroughly then can cause a certain smell or odor.

Steaming is also an option which is not that much considered in India.

When a fiber sofa is cleaned from the outside with dry cloth but not vacuumed, it can become pale in looks thus degrading its own charm with that of the place where it is kept.

Leather Or Leatherette Sofa

They are the easiest to clean sofa ever existed, want to know how? Just take a piece of cloth wet or dry and clean the sofa not once a day or once a week but whenever you feel it needs to be clean. Remember, it needs to be clean.

Leather Sofa can be scratched, unlike fiber sofa.

Scared of buying a white sofa? Buy a vacuum cleaner to help maintain your fiber sofa and make your home dust-free with ease altogether. (link)


How to decide which sectional sofa to buy?

TIP: If you are planning to shift in the near future then Sofa is the best recommendation by me for you. Sectional L shaped sofa is big and hard to assemble yourself.

Stand inside your drawing-room, guest room or in the lobby wherever you plan to place your sofa and look at the color of your walls. Always keep it simple and no fancy colors. 

Light-colored sofa like white, light grey is evergreen so try to keep it simple and sober which reflects your mindset through the walls and the sofa you choose.

The interior designer recommends white or lighter shades of color since it reflects calmness and welcomes your guest.

Brighter shades of pink, red, green, yellow are out fashioned and are harsh to the human eye while on a bright sunny day. You will feel more heat just by looking at your sofa Since according to psychologist colors can change the way you react to certain things.

At last, the sofa you choose depends on the size and dimension of your room.
