The color of a fabric sofa is important, it can make a difference in your overall room style. The following article tells you how to choose the color of a fabric sofa.

How to Choose Sofa Color?
If you're starting a decorating project from scratch, start by choosing a fabric sofa so you can decorate around it. A model sofa for room inspiration, it can be upholstered in vibrant luxurious fabrics or covered in colorful prints. It is the focal point of the room.

If you're adding a sofa to an already decorated room, or you want the sofa to play a supporting role, choosing color becomes important. Choosing a new sofa for an existing color palette means you have to decide whether the sofa will be neutral or if it will be an accent.

Some designers prefer sofas that match the color of the walls to unify the room and make it appear larger. This is an idea for a harmonious color scheme. Changing the wall color in the future can be complicated if you're buying a sofa that matches the color of the wall.

The most common way to do this is to buy a sofa that complements the rest of the decor, neither the center of attention nor a sofa masquerading as the color of the wall. That's why neutral sofa colors are the most popular in most homes. 

Light or dark sofa

Once you have decided whether your sofa is an accent color or a neutral color, you need to decide whether your sofa will be light or dark. Your floor color has a big impact on choosing the right sofa color. If you're considering a potential sofa on the floor, will it float over a sea of dark wood floors or rugs, or will it blend in? Since sofas are traditionally large and upholstered, and most fabrics absorb light, they can significantly darken a room.

If you put a dark sofa on a dark floor, it seems to disappear into the room. If you want a dark sofa on a dark floor, you should try to make it more visible. Dark sofas with metal or light wood legs can create visual space between the sofa and the floor. Using a lighter rug under the front of the sofa can separate the dark colors and make the sofa color pop. Light wood or metal coffee table can also help define the sofa from the floor. 

Light-colored sofas present different challenges than dark-colored sofas. The biggest challenges with lightweight sofas are staining and wear. Before choosing a white or light-colored sofa, consider how the room is being used now, not how you want it to be used. If your dog likes to lie on the couch, you probably don't want to have a white couch in the living room without serious training. If your sofa is kid-friendly and pet-friendly, and you still love the idea of a lightweight sofa, a washable sofa cover is a stylish compromise. 

Color options to suit your needs

Once you've considered light and shade for your new sofa, it's time to think about color. If you're not using a display sofa, then a neutral-colored sofa is a popular choice. A neutral sofa is easy to decorate around and can easily keep up with your changing style over the years. 

Neutral sofa fabrics include beige, grey, taupe, and cream. Matte beige sofa fabrics may appear dull around other colors, but textured beige fabrics with monochromatic flecks can create interest without adding new color. Gray sofas can range in color from light to charcoal. Grey is considered a chameleon of style, it can be sophisticated, cozy, cool or crisp. A neutral sofa can quietly complement the rest of your decor, yet still, be stylish and charming. 

A sofa in any color can blend beautifully into your space if you consider it another color in your color scheme. This means adding accessories or prints in the same color as the sofa to spread the color throughout the room. A sofa is a large piece of fabric that balances your room by repeating pops of the same color as the accent.

Finishing touches

When you buy a new sofa, there is no need to buy a matching loveseat. A more flexible style option is to choose a set of upholstered chairs to complement your new sofa. The chair doesn't have to match the sofa exactly, but the color of the sofa can be incorporated into the pattern or texture. Using a set of chairs instead of a matching loveseat gives you more opportunities to add color to your palette and more options for furniture placement.

Don't forget accent pillows and blankets as the finishing touches when it comes to coordinating your new sofa with the room decor. These little pops of color make your living room look coordinated.
