Maximizing Space With A Living Room Sofa


Room SofaA sofa in a room is a great way to occupy space for a special purpose. The main purpose of any sofa unit has been to not just to provide seating, but create an environment where the homeowner and his family can enjoy moments of togetherness. That’s why sofas come in a variety of shapes and sizes. In most cases, sofa units come into a category of number of seats.

Three seats in a row, two seats in a row (commonly called a love seat) and a single seat sofa are available today in the furniture market. Also, the special designer sofas for placing in the corner of the family room are also popular. These designer sofas are in the shape of a letter L, with the longer side, including the back rest with three seats in a row.

The most accepted arrangement of sofas in a room is utilizing oneĀ  three seat sofa and two single seat sofa having an end table between them. A living room set is also available for customers. This living room set contains a three seat sofa, a love seat, a single seat sofa, end table and a coffee table.

Depending upon the design, and volume of the living room, various combinations of sofas can be used to utilize space. While deciding the arrangement of the sofas, keep one thing in mind, that as soon as you arrange a sofa layout, the volume of space occupied by the sofas and surroundings immediately becomes the focus of attention. For example, if the sofas have been arranged around the TV unit, see that the rest of the space gets enough attention or it will look unoccupied. Also, make use of small elements such as end tables and coffee table of various shapes to create some interest in the living room.

Before defining a living room furniture layout, first finalize your main activity of interest in a living room. What does this mean? What I mean is why do you use the living room most. Is it for reading, watching TV, sleeping, home office in a with a computer, etc. Answering this question first is very important because living room furniture layouts play a major role. Since sofas are the heaviest furniture elements you cannot move or shift them every other day for a different layout. I’m not saying you can never change the layout once it’s done, but if you arrange the sofas around a TV unit, naturally watching television becomes your primary activity then.

However in the event that you place them round the exit to patio, then naturally you can spend lots of time watching nature and birds in the exterior garden.
