Purchasing perfect home furniture is not an easy task. Especially when it’s about selecting a sofa, it can surely give your head a spin because a lot of things need to be considered such as its material, shape, fabric, color, etc.
But there’s one way you can make this process a little easier: Whatever else you do, go with gray. Here are our top ten reasons as to why going gray is the safest bet you can make.
GRAY IS THE PERFECT NEUTRAL
Not too light like an ivory or white sofa, and not too dark like a black or navy sofa, it is the perfect neutral color to mix and match your style around it over the years. Gray can fit in with every style from contemporary to traditional too.
CONNECTS THE COLORS
Gray would work because when it’s gray, you don’t have to concentrate much on the color combination themes of your room. This hue has the power of connecting different hues.
COMFY AND LAVISH
Gray color would comfortably fit with any color or kind of your room interior. It would look comfortable to your eyes. Not only this, but it would endow the room ambiance with a luxurious feel.
ESSENTIAL FOR COOL COLORS
For those who like a cool contemporary palette (and are scared of the upkeep of clean white), a gray sofa is a must-have.
IT WORKS WITH HOT HUES
It’s worth stressing that although we may think of gray as “cold,” a true gray is not warm but also not cold either, so it also suits hot hues, like red, orange, yellow and pink.
IT DRESSES UP SIMPLE FORMS
Gray has an inherently sophisticated quality especially in dark and moody shades, so even the simplest sofa shape will look high end dressed in a stark gray fabric.
IT CAN BE SOFT
Despite not being an inherently warm color, gray has a warm sensibility. Think of it like tofu, which takes on the flavor of anything you mix it with.
IT ALSO CAN BE SHARP
For those who prefer a sleeker and more tailored look, gray is the perfect complement to graphic patterns or glam accessories. Ultimately, it is the choice of accessories that defines the mood, be it contemporary, traditional, eclectic or something else.
BE A FEATURE
In a subdued neutral palette, a gray sofa adds weight to balance out airy whites or creams, and emphasizes the subtle undertones in the surrounding neutrals.
IT CAN GROW WITH YOU
A gray sofa isn’t just an easy choice for your look right now; it’s a smart investment in your future. If taken care of, a quality gray couch can be the most grown-up piece in your first apartment.
If you cannot decide the color, then choose a grey one without confusing yourself again and again because it’s the color that suits almost all other colors. And you wouldn’t have to think much if it would suit your room interior.
