help! ADVICE NEEDED AND QUICKLY!! what size sofa for my room?
March 20, 2014 in Design Dilemma
I am moving into a house in a couple of days and have had to buy a new sofa however I think I might have bought one that's too big. the room is a tiny 10 ft wide x 12 ft long (I hadn't realized how much trouble a small space can be!!). Basically I bought a sofa today which measure 236 cms to go along the back wall to go with an accent chair and footstool. I was originally going to get a corner sofa but that would mean partially blocking a window which I decided I wasn't happy to do and the smaller corners sofas just aren't comfy enough! The problem I have is that having done a plan on a floor planner app it seems the big sofa wont allow me any flexibility if I want to change the room around.as well as potentially not allowing me to open the sideboard door even. also the accent chair will have to sit where it is and never move. but if I get the small sofa, I'm worried it wont be enough for me and the 2 kids and when guests come around. Please can you tell me the "rule of thumb when it comes to this sort of thing and if I have bought the wrong sofa I can change my order, but Ive got to be quick! Am I panicking too much? or should I go with the smaller sofa? Heres some pics I have from the room plan (to scale) I have done. the first is of the small sofa option the second the bigger sofa option.. the small sofa measures 201 cms.
