When purchasing a sofa for your home, one of the many things you need to consider is the colour! What colour will work for your home and your needs?
Firstly think about who will be using the sofa. Who is there in your family? For example, if you have young children or pets in your family who are known to be fairly messy, a light colour sofa may not be the best option for you. Choosing something darker that can hide any stains that cannot be removed may be best.
You should also think about your interior. You ideally want to choose a sofa colour that will go well with the interior of your home. You should also consider a colour that is likely to go with multiple interior choices, as you are likely to change the interior of your home more than your sofa.
If you do decide to go for a light coloured sofa, it may be worth purchasing a large blanket to cover it and keep it protected until you are comfortable with the thought of stains.
