WHAT YOU SHOULD CONSIDER WHEN CHOOSING A LEATHER COLOUR FOR YOUR COUCH

Whether you’re shopping for a couch that’s going to be the focal point of your living room, you want to add an extra element of comfort to your bedroom, or you’re looking to make your home office more versatile with a two-seater couch, choosing the right colour for your leather couch is incredibly important. The colour of your leather couch can really set the tone of a room, and you’ll want to make sure your chosen furniture item really works with your living space, rather than dominating it.

The difficulty doesn’t stop once you’ve purchased your dream leather couch or leather sofa suite, either. Once you have the perfect leather couch then have to decorate your chosen room in a complementary way to the rest of your home. If you’ve gone for a bold or unusual colour for your leather couch or leather sofa suite, this can be harder than you might expect.

A new leather sofa suite or leather couch is an investment, so you need to ensure you’re going to be happy with your choice for years to come. There are a number of factors you need to consider in order to ensure this is the case. Here, we’re going to take you through the main things you need to think about.
Remember: everyone’s style and preferences are totally different, which means there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to picking out the perfect leather seating option for your home. However, asking yourself these all-important questions should help you to make a decision that’s right for you.
 

DECIDE WHETHER YOU WANT A STATEMENT OR UNDERSTATED PIECE OF FURNITURE

 

If you really don’t know where to start when it comes to choosing the perfect colour for your leather couch or leather sofa suite, try asking yourself whether you’re looking to buy a statement piece of furniture or something more understated that is timeless and classic. This will help you to narrow your options down quite quickly. If you want your leather couch to be bold, opting for a bright colour will work best, while neutrals will give your living space a subtle, but still stylish, look and feel.

The best colour option for a leather sofa suite will depend on your personal style. For example, if you typically go all out when it comes to colour —your wardrobe might be full of fun and quirky pieces that you like to wear every day — sitting on a bright leather couch every day might bring you a lot of joy. But, if you have a more sleek and simple sense of style, don’t feel like you need to move away from this to pick out an interesting leather couch. You can always style up a more neutral piece of leather furniture by adding colourful throws and scatter cushions. When purchasing a leather couch or leather sofa suite, we recommend looking at the colour palette you typically gravitate towards.
 

CONSIDER WHETHER A LIGHT OR DARK SHADE WILL WORK BEST

 

Once you’ve decided whether you’re going to opt for a bright or an understated colour leather couch, you then need to consider whether light or darker hue is going to work best for you. And, there are a number of factors you’ll want to consider.

Firstly, are there any features of your room that you’ve already decided upon? For example, it’s a good idea to contrast a couch or sofa suite with your flooring, as this will help to ensure it works well as a focal point, rather than blending into the background. This means, if you’ve decided to lay down some dark wood flooring, a light-coloured leather sofa suite could be the best choice for your living room. On the other hand, if you’ve picked out cream carpets, a sofa of a similar hue could create too much of a monochrome look, so a darker shade of leather will typically make the best choice.

It’s also a good idea to consider where your leather couch is going to be placed. If you’re going to be positioning your leather sofa suite in front of a window that lets in a lot of natural light, it can often be best to pick out a piece of leather furniture in lighter leather colour. This is because leather couches may become discoloured if they’re exposed to direct sunlight for extended periods of time. If this is something you’re worried about, we would recommend considering a lighter coloured leather sofa suite.
 

THINK ABOUT THE FUTURE

A leather couch is truly an investment, so you want to ensure yours is going to stand the test of time. Not only does this mean that you’ll want to buy a leather sofa suite that is of high quality, but it’s also best to go for a style that you’re sure you’ll love for years. At Leather Gallery, we offer a wide range of leather couches, leather recliners, leather sofa suites as well as leather occasional chairs. All Leather Gallery leather furniture items are issued with a certificate of authenticity, this will give you peace of mind that you are purchasing a quality leather couch that will last for years, unlike many cheap leather couches.
You also need to think about how things might change as time goes on. For example, are you still looking for your forever home? If so, it’s possible you could move in the next couple of years, which means a neutral sofa that will work in lots of different settings might suit you best.
