When you are designing your living room, make sure you don’t overlook the benefits of an I shape sofa. These pieces of furniture might seem ostentatious at times, but there are actually some excellent benefits that you could take advantage of if only you understood them.
Obviously, the most immediate benefit to a corner sofa is that you can put it in the corner of any room you could desire. As a matter of fact, l-shaped sofas seem to magically fit in the corner of whatever living room you are trying to outfit. Sure, that is somewhat inconspicuous but, lets be honest, that is really good use of space; and since it seems like living space is getting smaller and smaller these days, you should take whatever you can get.
But using corners wisely is not the only way that corner sofas can benefit your spatial arrangement. If you think about the sofa as a focal point of entertaining company, for example, an l-shaped one actually makes the most sense. These pieces can actually accommodate more people than the average couch and love seat combination. As a matter of fact you might still be able to fit a love seat—or, at least, a couple of recliners—in the same space. Some are even detachable—or sectional—which gives you even more options.
Some l-shaped sofas are so well-designed that they provide storage options in the back, for example. Still yet, others are so spacious that they might also house a pull out bed. Indeed, there are many storage options you can take advantage of when you fashion your living room with a corner—or “l-shaped”—couch.
