White Leather Sectionals Add A Distinctly Modern Look to Your Room
Are you considering adding a white leather sectional to a room in your home? White leather sectionals are very distinct pieces of furniture and therefore should be carefully chosen in order to create the best aesthetically pleasing look in your room.
Although sectionals come in a number of colors, for an ultra modern look you want to consider only the colors of sectionals that bring a very distinctive look to your home. Due to its size, your sectional should be the centerpiece of the room and instantly attract the attention of anyone that enters the room.
Breaking Up the Portions of a Sectional
A sectional is designed exclusively so that the pieces of the furniture can be separated from one another, however in order to get the greatest appeal from this piece of furniture, you should design your room so that all of the pieces can remain adjacent to one another. If you are trying to decide how this would work in your room, consider designing your room so that the open ends of the sectional are not on top of the other pieces of furniture in your room.
Another option would be to place pieces of furniture within the interior space of the sectional especially if the section forms a semi-circle. However this could make sitting on the sectional feel crowded and uncomfortable in certain situations.
However, if you plan to have guests in your room over on a regular basis, placing a small table within the sectional might be a good idea as it would allow guests to sit and relax. You could also just incorporate the table as a design aspect with some decorative items such as a vase, books or small sculpture.
The key to design an ultra modern space is to give your room lots of breathable space so that you can enjoy the minimal nature of the room and not feel overwhelmed by items crowding the space.
When used properly a white leather sectional brings a clean and inviting look to your room. The selection of leather combined with the construction details of the sectional will determine how you should best decorate your room. Colors should be carefully chosen and used minimally along with a combination of textures such as woods and metals for contrast.
Selecting a Color Palette
Start with a monochrome palette which includes several different shades of white. You could start by choosing to paint the walls a very soft white and add accessory items such as a rug, lamps or tables that are also white but a slightly different shade. To add contrast you can incorporate some metallic items that are either silver, gold, or brass. Incorporating some woods in rich, deep colors will add depth to the room and make the white stand out even more. If you are feeling adventurous, you could even throw in a hint of color with some colored or patterned accent pillows.
A white leather sectional works best when you can contrast it with the flooring. Consider using this type of sectional in a room that features dark colored hardwood flooring. Natural woods with only a glossy finish are the best option. You can soften the contrast by adding some rugs or tapestries about the room. Glass furniture can also help to add a softer touch to the room by adding contrast without adding additional color to the room.
Placement of the Furniture
Due to its large size, placement of the sectional is crucial to maintaining the balance of the room. Your sectional should be placed in a position so that it does not disrupt the flow of the room. If you plan to make use of your room often, it is very important that your sectional does not block entranceways, windows or access to other furniture items in your room.
Also, if you are going to be purchasing a sectional that has a reclining section, make sure that you plan to position your sectional so that the reclining portion is in a position that makes it easy for you to relax and watch TV or read.
At the end of the day, it is very important that you plan your room carefully and try out a number of different scenarios before making a final decision on decorating your room with a sectional.
