The 5 best ways to style a grey sofa

14th June 2022

There’s so much you can do with a neutral tone like grey. It’s the perfect colour if you’re looking for something that’s both versatile and perennially chic. Due to its versatile nature, grey sofas can effectively blend in with any kind of design.

Whether you prefer a calming, minimalist style, a tonal and sophisticated blend, or something a bit more bright and breezy, a grey sofa is a perfect way to anchor any living room design.

We love the sheer multitude of options that a grey sofa can afford you here at Cover My Furniture; which is why we offer a vast range of exquisite sofa and chair covers in a variety of grey tones that we’re sure you’ll love browsing. Here are a few of our favourite styling options that you can use to elevate the mood of your grey sofa.

Contemporary minimalism

Keep it simple with Scandinavian styling. When using your grey sofa to achieve this popular design style, we’d recommend opting for a light colour palette on your walls, and adding a few warm textures like throws and pillows to keep your space feeling cosy. In the mood for something a bit more bold and daring? Try injecting some contrasting pops of black throughout your living room, like a monochrome coffee table, or a couple of decorative ceramic vases to add depth to your lounge’s aesthetic.

Dark and dramatic

Talking of bold and daring, a darker colour scheme is a great way of adding drama and allure to your living room. For example, a grey fabric sofa looks positively amazing in a lush green living room, and can really give it an element of cosy invitation. Dark colours are nothing to be afraid of, and a grey sofa is a great way of bridging the gap between a dark colour scheme on your wall, and a lighter wooden floor or carpet. Give it a try!

Cosy comfort

There’s something about grey that’s immediately reassuring and relaxing to look at. It’s not quite as dramatic as black, and no way near as high-maintenance as white, so it lends itself very nicely to a cosy living room design. You can complement your grey sofa with lots of cushions and a warm throw, and you’ve got yourself a comfy space that’s just begging you to settle down with a refreshing drink and a book.

Complete luxury

If you’re looking to add a sense of glamour to your living room, then a grey sofa is the perfect platform from which to build your sophisticated living room style. A deep grey sofa always evokes a sense of classical luxury, and you can complement this elegance with metallic finishes like gold coffee tables and standing lamps to really emphasise the indulgence of the this regal design choice. Still not quite satisfied? Consider adding some fresh flowers as an extra cherry on top.

Bright and breezy

Believe it or not, you’re perfectly able to work a grey sofa into a colourful living room design, without taking away from its vibrant atmosphere. In a busy space with lots of vibrant shades and prints, a grey sofa works as a neutral anchor which adds a lived-in, comfortable feel to your space.

These are just a few of the ways in which you can style your living room around your gorgeous grey sofa. Not currently in possession of a grey sofa? No problem! With our fantastic range of grey loose sofa covers, you can give your sofa a refreshing new look, without having to pay a new sofa price!
