Understanding Pull-Out Sofa Designs
It is good to consider the décor and layout of your room when choosing the kind of furniture that would expand and contract dramatically in your space.
Best size and shape.
When choosing your pull-out sofas you should firstly consider their sizes and shapes. They can be fitted in your living room, office rooms or even family room. They have a double functions and can serve as a couch then later a bed. Bearing this in mind, you should know just how it can fit in a designated area to be used as a sofa. Large rooms will require that you get optimal seating and a sectional arrangement. As for a small or tight room, a love
seat may be what you need. You should also evaluate the size of the mattress that you will need for the day and for your guests during the night hours. A queen-sized pull-out sofa brings with it versatility and is the beat for both day and night hours. They could be used by your family and guests too. They are huge enough to even serve more than two guests at the same time.
Etched somewhere in the mind is comfort. The comfort of your couch should assure you of its sleeping setup. If the couch is comfortable for seating, it could as well be for sleeping under the pull-out contraption just underneath it. When the cushions are made thicker, then they are good enough. The piece of furniture may have been made using metal. Therefore you need to protect yourself and the guests too, from the metal bars. A firm fabric helps do the magic for you.
You may be wondering where to store extra blankets, pillows and sheets in the guest room, while still maintaining the a good décor. The pull-out furniture supplies these storage feature, thus keeping your room from being packed.
As usual, you can play around with lighting in order to bring a good feel in the room, and lighting where there is good enough furniture is just a brilliant idea. Arc floor lamps are the ideal all-purpose choice for sofas, sleeper sectionals and loveseats. They are designed to particularly to fit behind a couch or the chair. They have an arched neck which maximizes on the area which the illumination will cover. They also have an overhead design which makes it easy to convert it into a nighttime lamp fro reading, especially for those who are tucked in the pull-out.
You can use a number of accessories to decorate.
Balance and Traffic pattern.
When many visually heavy things or furniture are placed in one side, the space looks very packed and unbalanced. You therefore should place a few chair across in order to balance out the sofa which is on one side of the room.
Movement around the living room should not be impeded by any object. Usually, a traffic flow is created when you place a big sofa in the living room. You should position the sofa in such a way that there is an open path where people can walk.
Ideal sofa placements.
There are ideal places within the living room where you can place your sofa, and achieve both décor and good traffic flow.
In front of a window.
When you have sofas with relatively low backs, you can place them in front of the window. Although some may think that it is not a good idea, you can leave a small gap between the window and the sofa in order to facilitate window treatments.
Across from a window.
A good view of natural architecture outside your home can be enhanced when you place your sofa across the window. At the comfort of your living room, you can enjoy this view, while enjoying a good drink.
Across from another sofa.
Visual balance is very vital. When you have a big sofa across the room, you should place another sofa directly opposite in order to achieve balance.
Facing the mantel.
Most rooms have a mantel, which is the focal point. Placing a sofa facing the focal point is a good idea.
In front of a door.
You don’t want to block the door, by placing a sofa in front of it. You also don’t want people to be walking behind a sofa just to get into the living room. You can however place a sofa in front of the door, and still have enough spacing. Ensure that you have a comfortable traffic path.
In the middle of your room.
If you have a very large room, you can place a sofa in the middle of your room. It is a perfect way of breaking up the room and even creating a conversation area.
Use of accessories.
You can use simple accessories and add them to your pull-out sofas. Throw pillows and fur pillows can also come in handy to achieve a good room design, while at the same time providing the comfort and warmth that you need when using the sofa. Floor pillows can also be placed in front of the pull-out sofas during the day for you to place your legs on. When you get the floor pillows covered with fur, whether it is Mongolian fur or faux fur, they can help bring a cozy feel and supply comfort when being used. Bedcovers or blankets that have been made with fur go a long way to bring out a decorative effect on the pull-out sofas especially at night.
