Why Is So Hard To Choose Colours For Your New Modular Sofa? And How To Make It Dead Simple?

Deciding on the colour for your new modular sofa is an important decision and one you will have to live with for some time. It is best not to rush into it or be unduly swayed by the latest fashionable colours on display as they may seem dated within a year or two.

If you go for this year’s trendy colour it may not look quite so good this time next year. Why not choose a neutral colour for your sofa and then add colour accents with throws and cushions in brighter colours? You should bear in mind that if the sofa is going to get a lot of use you will be better off with a tweed or multi-pattern that won’t show stains so easily. A pale cream fabric, for example, may look stunning when new, but, one coffee stain could ruin the whole effect.

If you want some bright, cheerful colours then you can jazz up things with warm throws or scatter cushions. These are not expensive so can be replaced from time to time, or maybe you can just replace the cushion covers.

If your lounge walls are light in colour, then often a darker sofa is a good choice. It can make more of a statement and look less washed out than a light colour that’s very similar in tone to the walls. You need to take into account the overall colour scheme carefully so that the walls and soft furnishings are in harmony and that the colour scheme works to the best advantage. A rich vibrant colour on the walls for example can be exciting, but not exactly restful. Also it can make a room seem smaller and more claustrophobic

You can get a good idea of colours from paint charts. Often they show colours which complement each other, or which can be used to affect a contrast, depending on whether you want a low-key look or something bolder.

Selecting a lighter, plainer material for your sofa can give you a broader range of options when it comes to accessories and cushions. They can be brighter, darker, or patterned to add interest and your own personal touch to the scheme.

Your sofa’s style should reflect the overall style that you are trying to achieve. If you have minimalist dcor, for example, then a black leather sofa always looks good. For a more traditional feel you could try a brown or cream leather sofa. Leather may not be quite as soft and comfy as some other materials but it ages well and is less likely to need replacing in a few years. A leather sofa can be a solid investment.

If your sofa is a solid uniform hue you may want to cover your other chairs to match. If buying slip-on covers you need to make sure you can take them back and change them if necessary as colours can look different in different lighting conditions.

If you are buying a ready-made slip-over for your sofa to blend with other pieces of furniture you may have similar problems with solid plain colours. You can however, look for flecks of colour or accents in the fabric designs in the room. If, for example you have chairs of brown velour with some red and gold weave then you can use one or both of these colours in your cover for your sofa. This will have the effect of uniting the separate pieces of furniture to give a coherent look.

Another option is to find another accent colour from somewhere else in the room, say the carpet or curtains. A burnt orange fleck may be noticeable enough to use in a matching sofa slipover and add to the effect. The tint could even be further highlighted by adding in a table lamp or coffee table centrepiece with the same bold hue. This can increase the overall dramatic effect.
