Top 10 Family-Friendly Sofas

When buying a sofa for a family home, there’s a lot to take into consideration. It’s not just about how it looks – functionality and practicality also have a part to play. With so many things to think about, here are our top 10 family-friendly sofas to help you work out what could work in your home.

1.    Leather Corner Sofa

When you need to maximise space, a corner sofa is always worth considering. And in terms of material, leather is ideal when there are kids, teenagers, adults and pets around! Easy to clean, durable and timeless, a leather corner sofa is a stylish and comfortable option.

2.    4 Seater Sofa

If you have a large living room, then a 4 seater sofa could tick all the boxes. Great for all the family, and wonderful for relaxing on when it’s just the two of you, sofas of this size make a real statement.

3.    Recliner Sofa

Kids (and grown ups) love nothing more than to kick back and watch a movie on a Sunday afternoon and there’s no better sofa for that than a recliner sofa. Available in a wide range of fabrics and sizes, from smaller armchairs to three seaters and corner recliners, these sofas are as stylish as they are comfortable.

4.    Modular Sofa

With family life often requires the need for flexibility, and a modular sofa, which is made bespoke by Darlings of Chelsea, offer just that. Whether you need an L-shape, a U-shape, one with a recliner or a sofa bed, a modular sofa can do it all! And they don’t even need to be the same colour, each block can be different. Modular sofas adapt to fit your lifestyle, which makes them the perfect choice for a growing family.

5.    Fabric Corner Sofa

Leather corner sofas aren’t for everyone, with fabric proving equally as popular a choice. Offering a great level of comfort, with the ability to really stretch out, a fabric corner sofa is available in a wide range of colours and patterns – when it comes to choosing seating for the family, darker shades are always recommended!

6.    3 Seater Sofa

Providing an abundance of space and comfort, a three seater sofa is a family-friendly option. Available in a wide range of styles and materials, it will fit seamlessly into your chosen design and provide enough room for the whole family to sit together.

7.    Chaise Sofa

Offering a similar amount of space to a corner sofa, a chaise sofa is a great choice for a family home. The only thing you may need to factor in is how to stop arguments about who gets the extra leg room!

8.     Sofa Bed

Practicality becomes a part of your decision making when kitting out the family home. Storage is key, as is making each piece of furniture perform its job to the utmost – a sofa bed wins hands down in that department, especially if you don’t have the luxury of spare rooms to offer your guests.

9.    Sofa with Storage

It almost sounds too good to be true – but a sofa with storage does exist. If you’re keen to look at ways to declutter, then this could be the ideal choice, offering space, style and comfort in one.

10.    Patterned Sofa

Where there are children, there tends to be spillages – while an efficient clean-up of any spills will usually do the trick, choosing a patterned sofa may help to hide the more stubborn stains. Alternatively, a darker coloured sofa, such as a charcoal grey is also an option if you’re worried about potential spills.
