Are you struggling to find the correct furniture for your living space? It seems the struggle with finding chairs and lounges that are well designed are quite common when decorating a room. You may find that some furniture simply doesn’t go with the aesthetics you’re going for.
That’s why we are here to help you find the perfect lounges for your living space. Find out about leather recliner chairs and more by reading our complete guide. It may give you ideas of what features to look for when buying couches for your house.
Style of the Lounger
There are various couch and lounger designs to pick from that are either one, two or three seaters. You have to decide whether you want single-seaters such as arm chairs or long elaborate couches for your living room. Some people opt for a combination of sizes.
The design of the chair you pick will make a huge impact on your décor options for the rest of the room. So it’s important to select the style of chair that will complement your space.
Big Luxurious Loungers
If you’re going for a cosy look, pick a couch that’s bulky with a lot of cushioning. This style of lounger fits well in larger living rooms. Bigger couches allow you to add layers of accents such as throws and scatter cushions.
Streamlined Arm Chairs
For modern or contemporary homes, sleek armchairs are the ideal choice. These types of chairs are chosen for their aesthetics and not for their comfort. A streamlined armchair is perfect for smaller apartments with minimal décor.
Big Comfortable Leather Recliners
Leather recliners are quite popular because of their aesthetics and comfort. A recliner chair is a single-seater that allows you to push the backrest into a semi-horizontal position and it provides a section to rest your legs & feet.
This style of chair is ideal for entertainment areas such as gaming or TV rooms. The seating is soft and they have low armrests. The backrest is high so it supports the neck. The leg rest is long to accommodate your height.
When getting off the recliner you can push the leg and footrest in so that it becomes a compact chair again.
What Colour Will Go Well with Your Living Space?
It’s important to select loungers with colours that won’t clash with the decor. Loungers come in many different shades. Some of them are solid colours and others have multicoloured patterns woven together.
The most common shades people pick for couches are neutral tones such as black and grey or warmer tones namely beige, dark brown & cream. This is because these colours go well with brighter cool tones so people use accents to create a contrast between two shades. For example:
- A cream couch looks stunning in a coastal style home because light blue cushions pair well with the tone of the lounger.
- Darker chairs go well with lighter shades.
- Black loungers are ideal for living spaces that have white backgrounds and accents.
However, if you’re quirky and you love bright colours there are loungers that come in neon blues, pinks & rich red tones. It all depends on what decor style you’re creating.
Selecting a Chair with Fabric You’ll Love
Another important aspect to consider when picking out couches is what fabric they’re made from. The fabric should be comfortable to sit on and it should be extremely durable. You don’t want a couch that will wear within the first year.
The most durable fabrics loungers are made from are:
If you have children or pets, pick a fabric that is smooth and easy to clean. Velvet might be a luxurious fabric for couches but it’s extremely difficult to clean especially if animal fur gets onto it. Leather is ideal because you can simply wipe down the area with a damp cloth to clean it.
4 Types of Loungers to Pick From
1. Futon Couches
A futon couch is highly convenient because it can be turned into a bed for guests. Futons are aesthetically pleasing so it doesn’t affect the décor of your living room. These couches are streamlined and easy to move around.
2. Chesterfield Lounges
Chesterfield lounges are made from smooth leather with deep buttoned upholstery, rounded armrests and equal arm & backrest height.
3. Chaise Lounges
A chaise lounge is a long reclining chair designed to support the legs. It has one armrest with equal height to the backrest and it’s typically made with plush fabrics such as suede or velvet.
4. Wing Chairs
Winged chairs have a high rise backrest with winged shaped accents mounted to the sides of the couch that stretches down to the armrests.
We hope our guide helped you find the lounger you’re looking for. But if all else fails, opt for a recliner chair. It’s a stylish, comfortable and compact chair that you can sink into whenever you need to relax.
