The Best Couches For Every Room in the House

Finding the right couch is never easy. Not only do you have to consider your budget and design preferences, but you also have to figure out the right piece for the room you’re furnishing. And, of course, it has to be comfortable,

So, whether you’re looking for a new couch for your living room or are wanting to find something for the kids’ playroom, here are the best couches for every room in the house.

Slipcover Couch

If your home has a farmhouse feel (or the room your furnishing does), a slipcovered sofa is a great option. Not only is it extremely comfortable and inviting, but it also fits well with the overall look of the room. Plus, because it has a slipcover, it is easy to clean should there be any messes.

Mid-Century Couch

Go with a mid-century couch if you’re looking for a piece of furniture that won’t take up too much space. The mid-century look is all about clean lines and tailoring, so these couches look great in tight spaces or in areas that don’t require a lot of extra seating. If you’re looking for a couch to put in a side room or bedroom, this may be the way to go.

Wicker Couch

Wicker couches are a great option if you need indoor-outdoor furniture. Whether you’re looking to add seating to your screened-in porch, patio, or front porch, a wicker sofa is an excellent option. To protect it even more from the elements, make sure your couch cushions are made from outdoor fabrics.

Sectional Couch

If you have a very big family — or have a big space to fill — it’s time to commit to the sectional sofa. Yes, sectionals take up a lot of space, but they’re very comfortable and give you the opportunity to seat many people at once. They’re a great option for a family room or even a basement, especially if it’s a space where people gather to watch TV or movies. Go for one in a neutral color, as you can easily spice it up with throw pillows or blankets.

Leather Couch

Are you looking for a couch to put in your den or office space? If so, a leather couch is a solid choice. It adds texture and color to a room and often goes well with wood furniture. Leather sofas can be on the expensive side, but they often get better with time and last forever.
