Brown leather sofas will instantly add warmth to a room and are available in many different shades, tones and finishes making them a versatile piece of furniture that would be suitable for almost every home. A brown leather suite alone won’t create the perfect interior instead it is the combined effect of all the aspects of a room that will make a room complete. With infinite options in terms of other items of furniture, wall colourings / coverings, soft furnishings and accessories it can be difficult to achieve ‘the look’. Below are a few decorating and interior design tips that can be used as a basic guide when brown leather sofas are used in a room.
Cushions are an affordable and easy way to add a splash of colour to your interior as well as draw attention to your prized leather sofa. Try using different textures such as cotton and velvet to give a different dimension to your brown leather sofas.
Carpets and rugs
A lighter coloured carpet will help make your sofas stand out. Darker coloured carpets alongside a dark brown leather sofa can overpower a room giving a heavy presence. Again try and play with different textures, a lighter coloured, textured carpet will go well with the smooth finish of a leather sofa. If you have a wooden or tiled floor in your lounge a rug in a similar style can also create the same effect as well as giving a more cosy and warm feel.
Wall coverings / colours
A lighter wall colour will soften a room’s atmosphere. Darkly coloured sofas can feel a bit masculine, this can be countered by adding a softer tone to the wall with either a cream or ivory paint or a wallpaper using a similar palette. Lighter coloured walls will create a lighter more airy feel to an interior and again give focus to your contrasting brown leather sofa. You can always grab paint tester pots and off-cuts of different wallpapers to ensure you get the right match.
Other items of furniture
You need to decide whether you furnish the room with items that are a similar shade of brown or contrasting colours. By using different colours you can add different points of interest, moving away from a uniform appearance. If you are intending on buying a brown leather suite to match your existing interior then its always a good idea to obtain a swatch or material sample to ensure that the sofas are the exact shade and finish that you require.
With so many different furnishing and interior design options available you can really put your own stamp on your interior making it an extension of your personality and style. Have a look online at images of similar room settings, taking the best aspects from each. Buy your brown leather sofas with confidence and have fun creating your perfect interior.
Buying a brown leather suite can be more complicated than you first think, with so many different shades and finishes of brown leather sofas available it can be difficult to choose one over another. The upholstery on a brown leather sofa can range from a light tan colour to a rich dark brown with many variances in between. As with any major purchase for the home there are a few considerations to bear in mind before making your purchase. With a little thought and planning you can ensure you purchase the perfect brown leather suite.
Who will be using the leather suite?
Its always a good idea to ask yourself who will be using the new sofas, children, adults, pets? If the brown leather suite is likely to get use from children and pets it may be better to opt for a darker coloured leather as these will not show marks as much as a lighter coloured equivalent.
Matching your suite with existing furniture
You must be careful when trying to match your new brown leather suite with any existing brown leather furniture. Even if two items are a couple of shades different they will stand out like a sore thumb! Obtaining a sample of the leather from the outlet from which you are buying your suite is a good move and means you can ensure you get an exact match rather than taking the risk.
Where to buy suites?
There are many outlets from where you can purchase a brown leather suite either from a high street store or online. Great deals can be had when buying over the internet but you do not have the advantage of being able to see and try out the furniture beforehand so in many ways you are ‘buying blind’. You do have this benefit when buying in a physical store but the chances are you will be paying for the privilege. If possible try and get the best of both worlds by shopping on the high street and buying online, this way you can try the sofas out beforehand and get the best price.
Will my new brown leather suite fit?
Careful measuring before making a purchase can save you serious time, money and hassle in the long run. You will need to make sure your brown leather suite will physically fit into the property, so any doorways, tight turns and awkward access points need to be considered. Sales staff should be able to advise whether any potential sofas are likely to fit. Some sofas are also available with removable feet and removable backs for easier deliveries. As well as fitting into the property, you will also need to ensure that once in the room of your choice the sofas aren’t too big for the room and overpower the interior or worse, block doorways and accesses.
With so many different models available there should be sofas out there to suit everyone, with a little bit of shopping around and careful planning you can find and purchase the perfect brown leather suite.
