How to Pick The Right Seating For Your Living Room

by Waverly Wilde

The cush your tush sits on is important.

No matter if you or your family are watching movies, playing video games, reading your favorite novellas, or binging the latest season of “Orange is the New Black,” you don’t want your leisure time in your living room interrupted by uncomfortable cushions or hard-as-asphalt seating.

As your family grows, your seating needs going to change, as well. We’re here to guide you through the process of picking out living room seating, and to help you decide which is best for your unique scenario.


Size and Spacing

If you are living by yourself in a smaller apartment, your living room seating needs are going to be much, much different than a family of four with a spacious living room and kids bouncing off the walls.

The first thing you want to consider when it comes time to think about your backside’s needs is space. If you don’t have a lot of space you may want to opt for smaller living room furniture, and if you live alone you might be able to get by with a one-person recliner or smaller love seat – of course with optional folding chairs or storable seats for when you have company over.

If you have to consider the seating needs of your whole family, though, you want to make sure to get something that can seat everybody comfortably. Larger sectionals can be a better option here and can give everybody room to sit comfortably all at the same time.


Cushioned Comfort

What’s one of the worst things that can happen when it comes to shopping for new living room furniture? Picking out something you love, getting it home, then testing out your seat ... only to find out that the piece you were in love with in the store isn’t nearly as comfortable at home.

The easiest way to combat this is to make sure that you try out any furniture before bringing it home. Give it a test spin. Recline. Sit. Get comfy. And most of all, make sure you actually enjoying sitting on it.   


Do Your Door Diligence

OK, there’s one thing that’s worse than getting home with your new furniture and finding out that it isn’t that comfortable: Getting your new furniture home and finding out that it won’t fit in your home.

Before you bring any piece of furniture home, no matter how big or small, you want to measure any doorways the furniture will have to travel through, and make sure that it is going to fit.
