Choose The Right Sofa Color For Your Living Room

Last updated on December 17th, 2021

A couch is one of the few big investments in your home and needs your careful consideration. The kind of sofa that you choose will also decide how the rest of the décor fits around it and it’s a decision that you’ll need to live with for years.

If you know the type of sofa that you want, the only other thing remaining to be decided on is the color of your sofa. The color of your sofa can either blend in with the décor of your living room or be chosen to match a few important elements in the room. It can even be something that stands out from the rest of the décor and does not match anything else in the décor.

Let’s have a look at a few different ways the sofa can become a part of the living room décor and enhance its appeal.

1. You can choose the sofa to blend in with the flooring and the rest of the décor if you have wooden flooring and decide to invest in a couch that is a shade of brown. You can vary the scene a little by choosing throw pillows that stand out from the overall décor.

2. Here’s another setting where the sofa blends in seamlessly with the rest of the décor which is done up entirely in different shades of grey. The setting uses bright orange as accents that seem to breathe life into it.

3. You can choose a sofa that stands out from the rest of the décor and complements the accent colors used in the room, which happens to be a dark shade of green in this setting.

4. Another popular trend happens to be to choose a couch that matches the walls and the rest of the neutral décor, and use bright and colorful accent pillows that make the neutral setting vibrant and exciting.

5. You could even choose a minimalist setting where color isn’t big in the overall scheme of things and everything is understated and subtle. In this contemporary setting too, we see the use of a neutral color palette throughout, and even the pillows that are designed to stand out, do so quite subtly. It is interesting to note, how similar colors like grey, brown and beige, all neutral shades, are used here, creating a serene, warm, and inviting space.

6. If you choose a sofa that’s more on the colorful side, it is important to have other items in the living room in the same color that keep the color scheme coherent. In this setting, for instance, the indigo from the couch also finds its way in the other prominent décor elements, making it blend in seamlessly.

7. You can get your simple and plain sofa to stand out by simply placing it against a contrasting background. An area rug can come in really handy in such settings.

8. Last but not least, homes that have the luxury of a great view right outside their windows can match their interiors to the great outdoors using a couch in green. Here’s a setting that pulls it off flawlessly.

Happy decorating, folks!
