First Home Essentials: Choosing a Sofa and Dining Table

Designing your first home? Start with the pillars of a great living and entertaining space: the sofa and the dining table. 

Here's a quick guide to help you make the best choice for your home.


Selecting the Right Sofa

Measure Your Space: 

Ensure your sofa fits comfortably without overwhelming the room. Measure the dimensions of your space and consider the sofa's size. Does the sofa have broad arms? Does it reach all the way to the floor? Remember also, the sofa’s depth and height will make as much visual impact as its width.


Style and Function:

Decide on the sofa's primary use. For lounging and movie nights, opt for a deep, cushy sectional. For a formal living room, a sleek, stylish settee may be better.


Material Matters:

Choose materials based on your lifestyle. Leather offers a sophisticated look and is easier to clean, while darker or even speckled fabric options help to conceal any marks from a busy family lifestyle.

     

     

    Picking the Right Dining Table

    Consider the Space:

    Measure the dining area, leaving enough room for chairs and movement. Oval tables offer a compromise between entertainment capability and space-efficiency, as the rounded corners make space for ease of movement.

     


    Material and Durability:

    Choose a material that fits your lifestyle. Wood offers a timeless, sturdy option, while marble makes an incredible statement in your entertainment space and requires a little more care to maintain its beauty.


    Mixed Elements:

    Don’t be afraid to contrast a dining table with your chairs and surrounding elements. Mixed materials add depth to your design aesthetic. Pair a wood dining table with boucle chairs for a contemporary but cosy look.

     


      Keeping these tips in mind, you can select the perfect sofa and dining table to enhance your living space, combining style, comfort, and functionality seamlessly.
