How Corner Sofas Can Help Transform Any Living Room

  in  The Living Room
Corner sofas are a fantastically stylish alternative to the standard two seater or three seater sofa. These sofas typically have enough room for at least four people to sit on. You can buy corner sofas to take advantage of a small amount of living space, to maximise on seating capacity, or to eliminate the need for a sofa suite. You can even take advantage of the shape and size of these sofas and use them instead as static recliners.

Having a small home or living room shouldn't stop you from entertaining. Trying to cram a three-piece-suite into your lounge can leave you with very little room to manoeuvre around in. If you like to recline you can by positioning your self at the sofas corner. The benefit of this over an actual reclining sofa is that you can use this seat, whereas recliner sofas don't offer you the same option. These sofas aren't just great space saving pieces of furniture, they're stylish too. You can easily add a modern twist to your room by placing one or two of these in a corner. If you want to make a statement you could also place the sofa in the middle of your room instead.

Corner sofas don't come in one standard style. You can also buy chaise corner sofas and modular sofas. Chaise corner sofas usually have one extended seat that is used for putting your legs up whilst you relax, the extended seat doesn't always have a full side to it, and may not be considered to be a corner sofa by all. Modular sofas are really interesting. Instead of buying a fixed sofa, you buy sections of one. These sections are then fixed together to create the perfect seating arrangement for you. You can also turn these into U-shaped sofas to make the most out of narrow rooms.

Like standard sofas, corner sofas can be made of a variety of fabrics and colours too. You can buy the typical fabric or leather corner sofas or you could experiment and go with the lesser used but nonetheless interesting materials like corduroy, suede or velvet. Colour choices should be made to compliment your room's current decor. If you enjoy relaxing with a lot of cushions, you could buy a scatter cushion corner sofa instead. These sofas don't have solid cushioned backs instead they come with a number of cushions that can be arranged according to your style preference.

These sofas don't have to just go into a living room. There are a number of special corner sofas on the market that may be better suited to other rooms in your home. You can buy corner sofa beds for your spare room, to turn it into a multi purpose living space, or if you're a film lover you may be interested in the cinema corner sofas that can be used to turn your spare room into a movie theatre. These sofas come with built-in DVD players and memory banks to play your favourite films. There's a corner sofa choice available to suit all budgets and all tastes.
