In recent years corners sofas have become the go-to option when it comes to modern interior design. It doesn’t, of course, mean that regular sofas are not worth considering, but the choice between the two definitely shouldn’t be made without careful consideration. But in order to decide whether a corner sofa is a good addition to your living room, it’s important to learn more about all the pros and cons of choosing this solution.
Consider the layout of your living room
Creating a functional layout should be your main concern during any redecoration project – after all, your living room is the most visited room in your house, and using it should always be comfortable. Make sure to place your furniture in a way that gives a lot of room to move around freely – it’s impossible to overstate the importance of traffic flow in a room. A beautiful black corner sofa may stylistically fit in perfectly with the rest of the design, but unless you have enough space for it going with a smaller regular sofa may be a better idea. But in general, it’s possible to place a corner sofa in a small living room without making it feel cramped, but you can also use it to divide your open space living room into two separate sections.
Invest in your own comfort
Corner sofas may be more expensive than other types of sofas, but they offer you a comfortable place not only to sit but also to lay down after a hard day at work. They simply offer more space. And of course, it’s always good to think about your interior design in terms of its visual appeal and style when choosing new furniture, but nothing should be more important than your own comfort. So instead of focusing on what’s in fashion, look for sofas that will suit your needs. If you want to be able to lie down comfortably on your sofa while watching TV, investing in a corner sofa is definitely a good idea, but if you don’t spend too much time there and the only time your sofa is used is when you’re entertaining guests – going with a cheaper, regular sofa may be a better option.
Gain more seats without using too much floor space
One of the biggest advantages of a corner sofa is the fact that it can simply seat more people than standard sofas – especially when you count in the amount of floor space they use. For this reason, they are a great option for you if you have a small living room, but you often have guests. Placing such a sofa in one corner of a room gives you plenty of room for everyone to sit down comfortably without having to look for additional chairs. And at the same time, the layout of the room stays open optically enlarging your living room.
But while a corner sofa has a lot to offer when it comes to your comfort and overall visual appeal of your living room, there’s one specific disadvantage that you need to keep in mind. You can easily move a regular sofa around the room whenever you want to redecorate, but finding a different place for a corner sofa may pose a bit of an issue – especially in smaller living rooms. So it’s definitely something to consider before making your final decision.
