Get Cosy with Corner Living: A Corner Sofa Buying Guide
A three and a two may be great for most homes but we’re seeing more and more customers purchase a corner sofa for their living room.
People are now looking for an even cosier and personal set-up and a corner or chaise style sofa can do just that. It’s intimate yet spacious enough for the family to get together on.
But is it right for you?
• It’s a myth that a corner sofa is exclusively suited to a larger room, sometimes it can be very space-effective to focus your seating in one area, leaving the rest of your furniture to occupy the rest of the space without getting in the way.
• If you do have a larger living room, this style of sofa can be a great room divider (as they don’t always have to be in the corner), especially if you have a living/kitchen open area.
• Due to a corner sofa being a static piece, it can often mean less flexibility should you want to change up your living room arrangement.
• If you’re going to go for a corner sofa, you need to make sure you position it in the right way for your living room. You don’t want to obscure window views or block walkways around the living room.
How About a Chaise?
A chaise is a normal sofa shape with an extended seat extension at one end. There are many customisable corner sofas that can also have a chaise added to it, to create a ‘U’ shape, like Sits.
They are a happy middle option if you’re looking for extra comfortable seating without the commitment of a corner.
