Buying a sofa is one of the most significant investments you make in your home. It’s likely to be the centrepiece of your living room and will undoubtedly affect some of your décor choices too. So, choosing a sofa colour is a big decision. Here are a few ideas to help you get it right.
The first thing to consider is the what kind of project are you taking on. Are you designing a brand-new room from scratch – new sofa, painting the walls, new curtains, the works. If you are, you’ll have more freedom to explore different sofa colour combinations. On the other hand, if you’re simply choosing a new sofa to complement an already decorated room, then it’s more a case of choosing a sofa colour that suits the space.
Secondly, you need to be honest about yourself – are you the kind of person who changes their mind easily? If so, you might want to consider choosing a sofa colour that you won’t get bored of quickly.
Sofa colour combinations: a general rule of thumb
The sofa colours you’re drawn towards should work with the colour choices you make for your interior décor. Broadly speaking, you’ll be choosing between a neutral or accent sofa colour. Neutrals are popular sofa colours, as they are easy to tie in with a range of palettes – or if you decide to switch up your décor later down the line. This French Connection Marl grey sofa, from our sofa partner DFS, fits perfectly with the warm tones of reds, pinks or oranges. Featured below we have Soft Stone, a warm neutral with delicate pink undertones.
