How to design a custom sofa to fit your space

If you have been looking for a sofa but can’t seem to find one that fits your space perfectly, then a custom sofa is the way to go! While the idea of ordering a custom sofa might seem complicated, the actual process is much simpler than you might think. You might have a pinterest image or have seen a sofa on instagram that you love but need a little help deciding on dimensions and finishes. StyleNations specializes in custom furniture, so read on for a simple guide to designing your custom sofa.

1. Decide on your custom sofa budget

When ordering a custom sofa, you should consider the budget that you want to spend. Custom sofas can range from $2000 to upwards of $6,000 depending on size, materials and finishes. You will need to figure out what features and benefits you want on your new purchase and work your budget around that.

Alternatively, if you have a set budget that you want to stick to, use your fixed budget price to decide what type of custom sofa is the best fit for you! There are a decent amount of custom sofas available at prices that won’t break your bank.

2. Find The Size You Want

Now to get started with the sofa, apart from the two, three, and four cushion configurations, there are several other options for customizing the size and depth.

You can opt for a sofa for small and large spaces; however, you may resort to sectionals for filling in a larger space or the added degree of comfort. Depending on the layout of the room, you may choose a left chaise, right chaise, or corner sectional.

3. Find your perfect custom sofa frame

Now that size and pricing are out of the way, it’s time to look at the frame style you want. Frames are the wood or fibreboard bases to furniture that the cushioning and upholstery cover. Sofa frames are available in a wide variety of custom styles, from simple to elegant.

Perhaps you are interested in a more Mid-century Modern style sofa with clean lines and raised wooden legs. Or maybe you prefer the classic button-back sofa style, complete with nailhead trim. Whatever your style, you will have options available that fit it perfectly.

4. Pick Your Fabric or Leather

Now for the fun part! There’s leather, velvet, linens, twills, and more when it comes to choosing upholstery. The fabric you choose can transform the sofa and the aesthetics of your space in its truest sense. However, you will want to consider how you’ll be using the sofa — for example, spills are easier to clean off leather than velvet.

The vast majority of StyleNations’ custom furniture range is entirely customizable. This allows you to select your own fabric for upholstering to ensure you can create a unique look and connection, specific to your bar, hotel or restaurant space. Many of the different aspects of the custom furniture on StyleNations site can be tailored to the needs of the buyer, including materials, colors, and finishes.
