How to plan your room for a Maker&Son sofa

How to plan your room for a Maker&Son sofa

October 17, 2019

When choosing your new sofa there are a variety of factors to consider. Sitting (no pun intended) at the heart of your room, your sofa has to complement and combine with the various aspects of your home, from the colour scheme to the actual placement of the furniture to suit the needs of you and your family. Here at Maker&Son, we understand, selecting a sofa is more complicated than one often thinks, and we are here to help streamline the process for you, with extra guidance to ensure everything is perfectly suited to your needs. We are passionate about matching your lifestyle with the best designed and made furniture and, as such, we offer many extra services to make the experience of investing in a Maker&Son sofa a joy. 



Particularly useful when moving into a new space or relocating, we can help configure the best possible placement for your furniture. It can be rather overwhelming and tricky to work out the dimensions and how to get the most out of your space. From maximising small spaces, working with odd-shaped rooms or simply figuring out how to accommodate the needs of the whole family in one living room can be challenging. At Maker&Son our team would be more than happy to help with this, our floor planning service can help solve any problems and ensure the process is simple and effective for you. Please do send us floor plans if you have them, or a few photos of the room will suffice, then all we will need is the length and width of the space and a quick phone conversation to discuss how your investment can help create your ideal room. We can create alternate plans with different furniture configurations, so you can select which size suits you best — simple!

Interior design

If you are undergoing a renovation project or just simply refreshing what you already have in your home, our interior design service is here to provide inspiration and advice. Our experienced team will work with you to select proposed colour schemes to the particular fabric - whatever aspect you need assistance with! We take pride in our furniture and want it to look it’s finest, by creating the right individual environment for you to get maximum enjoyment from it.

Augmented reality app

We have a rather fancy app! Using slick augmented reality, download our app for free on both the Apple Store and Google Play. This helps you plan by visualising our furniture in your home all via your phone or tablet. Test out different placements and explore our colour range - all from the comfort of your own home. 


Bespoke services

We can adapt our designs to suit your needs, from creating an L-shape sofa to fit your space to raising the height, all of our measurements can be adjusted so you can maximise your comfort and space. To enquire and read more about our bespoke services please visit here

We are regretfully putting a temporary hold on production and deliveries of our furniture in the UK.

We are delighted to say we are still receiving orders, but would like to let you know that our lead time is likely to be between 8-12 weeks.

We are a family business, and we remain committed to building and delivering beautiful pieces to last a lifetime.
