But let’s keep in mind that a sofa can also be put in other spaces apart from the living room. For example, a small sofa can be a lovely accent piece for a bedroom in which case a splash of color is a welcomed detail.
If you like to sit upright in your sofa, choose a shorter seat depth. The exact number will vary depending on your height, but 20 to 22 inches tends to be a good range for most people to sit up comfortably. To figure out the seat depth you prefer, sit in a few different sofas and measure the one that works best for you.
