The sofa is one of the main elements of the interior, so remember that its design largely determines the style of the room.
It is also one of the items on which you should not save. The truth about this furniture comes out, as a rule, after two years of use: a quality sofa will retain its appearance; Worse sofa will look worn, deformed.
Although many models seem similar at first glance, the quality cannot be faked. Ask the seller what technology the sofa is made of, how upholstered is the upholstery, what guarantee the manufacturer gives.
The currently popular gray sofas are almost perfect to use. Medium shades of gray are recommended, because they do not show slight dirt and dust.
A good choice is melange fabric. It effectively masks the signs of everyday use.
Upholstery made of this fabric is ideal for people who have small children or pets.
Gray has many shades. There are pure shades that can be determined by the ratio of black and white colors.
There are also shades mixed with some other color. Warm - with the addition of yellow, red and green and cold - containing blue or purple.
Combining several elements of gray in the interior, you need to make sure that their shades are similar.
When choosing shades, daylight is necessary, because it is with such lighting, as a rule, we see the interior and its colors.
If you want to pick up a neutral shade, take with you a reference sample - a card with a pure gray tint of paint or a piece of fabric of neutral gray.
If you attach such a sample to another gray version, you can see sometimes imperceptible at first glance differences.
What is the color gray?
Another difficulty is to combine gray with other colors. It is best to take samples of those colors that you would like to compare.
It may be that the cold shade of gray in combination with warm beige does not look very good, and therefore you should choose a warmer shade of gray.
Most of the stores that offer furniture, provides customers with samples of fabrics and leather. Choose colors and take into account all the nuances in this case is much easier.
