5 Ways to Customize Your Sofa

5 Ways to Customize Your Sofa

Before you buy a standard sofa from an online retailer, check to see if it can be customized. Custom sofas are often of a higher quality than one you see on the showroom floor because they have been made especially for you. If you customize your sofa, then you know it will be the perfect fit for your space. Here are our top 5 ways to customize your sofa.


1.  The Frame


Start with the frame. If you want a quality piece of furniture, you need a hardwood frame. Frames made from other materials will deteriorate over time, so invest in a quality frame when you customize your sofa.


2. Customize the Seat Height


This is one of the most common ways to customize your sofa, but it is often overlooked in the design process. Deciding whether you want a high or low back for your sofa will affect your room's look and how it feels to sit in your chair. If you are short or of average height, then the height of your sofa's seat will not impact your relaxation. However, if you are tall, we suggest you customize your sofa to have a high back, so you get proper support while you unwind.


3. Take Advantage of Any Wood and Stain Options

You can also customize your sofa's legs. Many sofas have wooden legs that can be stained to any color you like. Staining the legs of your sofa is a great way to add to the color palette of your living room subtly. Match the stain to the color of your coffee table or cabinet to create a cohesive color scheme for your space.


4. Choose a Fabric


Most retailers work with manufacturers with access to hundreds of fabrics, take advantage of this, and customize your sofa using a fabric you love. The type of upholstery you choose for your sofa will significantly affect your living room's atmosphere, so keep this in mind when you narrow down your fabric choices. If you want to create a warm and inviting space, then opt for a cream fabric. If you are buying a sofa for a formal sitting room, then leather would be a good option for you.


5. Don't Throw in the Towel


If you settle on a fabric in a neutral color so you can change up your room's decor theme on a whim, use a throw to inject some color back into your space. A blue or purple throw over a pale sofa can give your room a regal feel. A textured deep forest green throw on a leather sofa can add warmth to your space, and a soft black throw on a lighter colored sofa can add dimension to the seat. If you coordinate your color and fabric choices well, this could be just what you need to complete your living room.
