How a Corner Sofa Can Help Use Space Smartly

The way people view and use their home is changing and nothing reflects this more than the growing popularity of corner sofas. They are the perfect solution for families, those that frequently have guests and those who just cannot resist stretching out - a corner settee provides a host of options.

Corner sofas are a smart solution to a host of design dilemmas. In cases where space is limited, corner settees can be used to maximise the seating area without the room feeling over crowded. On the other hand, with open plan rooms, corner sofas can be used to define zones. Open plan interiors are the essence of contemporary living, with a light and airy feel, but without well thought out zones they can be confusing and stressful. A corner sofa helps divide up areas to create order and accentuate the ease and comfort of open plan living.

Available in a multitude of colours and designs, cloth fabric covered settees are the most popular choice and can help create a contemporary look and feel; however leather corner units are also gaining popularity providing a stylish option with the benefits of a durable and easily maintained fabric.

A corner sofa usually comes in a sectional style and therefore there is a choice of 2 seater and 3 seater sofas, meaning they can be as small or large as the room requires. When it comes to decorating a living space, many design choices are influenced by the furniture in the room, a corner sofa can create a dramatic stylish talking point whilst creating fine use of the free space available.
