What to Consider When Purchasing Luxury Seating
Seating can be the most versatile pieces of furniture in your home. Compared to other items in your living room such as tables, lighting, and even desks, the options for design, structure, size, and utility are much higher. At Carrocel, we have a variety of luxury seating options available to decorate your living space.
Considerations When Purchasing Seating
Whenever you purchase furniture, there are always some considerations to keep in mind. This is especially true in the case of seating, as it will be used frequently in your home. Along with making a note of the space available in the room you are purchasing for, it is important to also consider the following:
- What Is the Seating Capacity Required? – Whether you’re shopping for new dining chairs or sofas for your living room, keep in mind how many people you need to seat regularly. You may fall in love with four dining chairs, but if you have a family of six, this option will not work for you.
- Will It Match the Décor? – Your new piece of furniture should complement the colour scheme of the walls, floors, and other furniture already present in your home. Unless you’re planning on completely remodelling, opt for pieces that fit in nicely with the already established style.
- How Does the Fabric Fit with Your Lifestyle? – Be aware of the maintenance of the fabric before purchase, as well as any special things of note. For example, if you have pets that shed, velvet upholstery will require more maintenance to keep clean than leather. Vintage fabrics and woods may require special cleaning and maintenance as well that come at a higher cost than modern reupholstered furniture.
- Is the Seating an Appropriate Height? – You want to make sure you purchase seating that is an appropriate height for both yourself and those living in your home. Tall individuals may have a harder time comfortably getting into and out of low chairs and sofas, while those on the shorter end will struggle to get onto a tall bench easily.
