Tips for Choosing the Right Couch Color
Home Ideas by JustMy | January 29, 2021
There are several ways you can use color to narrow the selection when you are shopping for a new loveseat, sofa, or sectional. Read on to learn more.

A couch sets the tone for the entire room, making the color one of the most important features. This decision is not one you should take lightly. There are a few tips for choosing the right couch color that will help narrow your selection.

Mood of the Room

The sofa is the centerpiece of the room, and you usually decorate around it. What happens when you are trying to establish a specific atmosphere through this piece of furniture? For people who understand color psychology, the solution is finding a color that fits the mood you want to set in the room.

Color psychology is the study of how the hues we see affect our mood. Certain shades of greens and blues can promote tranquility and serenity, while reds and yellows stimulate energy and excitement. When you are shopping for furniture, considering the mood you want to set in the room makes selecting a color much easier.

Consider the Material

The next tip for choosing the right couch color is to think about the material you select. This is because the material of the new couch should also play a role when considering the color. Certain materials, like leather, look better in traditional browns, blacks, and whites. Microfiber and other materials allow you to explore more trendy and modern color options. Consider the décor you already have in your living room and select your sofa’s color and material based on that.

Location of the Sofa

The sofa’s location should also influence the color choice. If you’re putting it in a well-lit room, choose a color capable of hiding stains. If the couch will stay in a room where natural light could flush out the color, white or cream might work best. Think about all of the ways that the couch will be affected by the environment and how the sofa’s color can help.
