Couch considerations

Regardless of what your lounging habits are, there’s more to picking a couch than simply relying on its good looks.

How large is your space? In general, your couch should never take up more than 30% of floor space in your living room, so choose wisely. Placement of your couch also plays into how ergonomic your interior design is at the end; push the couch all the way up to the wall if you’re short in space, and consider the distance between the couch and your television to ensure the optimum viewing experience.
