Sofas and chairs would be the stock components of a full time income room. Sofas in particular come in many different varieties, ranging from double to four-seaters with no particular functionality to sofas with reclining features, slides and even sofa beds that are useful for unexpected overnight guests. If you elect to include them, each of these kinds of functionality involves a supplementary cost, so you should choose wisely. If you have a few extra bedrooms for guests, and why purchase a recliner if you never use it, for instance, there is little need for a sleeper. Not all people like a footrest or even to recline back when sitting, so the type of living room furniture you want to purchase should be determined first by your own specific needs.
