How To Create Your Dream Sofa
When you set your heart on creating the perfect seating option for the living room, you can soon get lost in a seemingly never-ending world of choice and options.

The answer is to break it down, and keep it simple. Take a look at our top 5 tips to get you started.
Size Matters: Create a floor plan
Space is the main limitation when it comes to created the sofa you have always dreamed of. It’s no use aspiring to a 10 seater corner sofa if you only have room for a 3 seater recliner. Be realistic about what you can fit into your chosen space, and use it to inform your decisions. That way you’ll be well on your way to creating something that you’ll love to lie down and relax on for years to come.
Look For Inspiration: Get googling
You’re creating something bespoke, so accept that you’re unlikely to find exactly what you want on Amazon or eBay. Instead get googling and find ideas for fabric, new looks for leather, and some comfortable layouts that will get your mind thinking and those creative juices flowing.
Make A Mood Board: Ever heard of Pinterest?
Mood boards are great for exercising your inner creative. By pinning everything that takes your fancy to one place you can give your imagination the fuel that it needs to really get loose and creative. Don’t worry about getting it perfect, you’ll gradually zone in on what you really want the more you look around and then reflect on the board that stands in front of you.
Think Colour: What are you trying to achieve?
Are you looking to have your new sofa set the tone for the rest of your room? Or are you looking for something that fits seamlessly into the urban oasis that you have spent weeks and months painting and decorating? It doesn’t matter which way around you do it, and when you decide you’ll have taken a major step in pinning down your custom build.
