As a center of home comforts, the living room is of course the ideal place for a sofa. But which sofa should it be, with all the different shapes and materials?
Set The Sofa Diagonally
Yes, you need a large living room if you want to set your sofa diagonally. But if you have an appropriate space, such a positioning always seems casual and generous. You can either move your sofa diagonally in front of a corner or place it in the middle of the room. In the corner variant, you should make sure to leave enough space between the sofa and the corner. The resulting space behind it can be used for a plant, a basket with blankets or an arc lamp. Or you put a narrow console or a small shelf on the back of the sofa, then it does not seem so massive. Especially with combined dining and living rooms creates a practical room divider. Attention: do not block sidewalks.
The Classic Combination Of Sofa And Armchairs
A few years ago, the advertising agencies found out in a study that in most living rooms there is an ensemble of a sofa and one or two armchairs. Why? Because this combination is both flexible and practical. Ideally, the sofa stands against the widest wall – the TV set, if you like watching TV. So you use the existing space best. If possible, avoid putting your sofa right in front of the window. On the one hand, high backrests and cushions darken the room. On the other hand, we feel uncomfortable when we can not see what is happening behind us. As for the armchairs do not choose models from the same program. If you want a stool for your feet, but have little space: A upholstered stool with tablet is quite uncomplicated to a mobile coffee table.
What Should Be Behind The Sofa?
You can use the room behind your sofa for a bookshelf. Or you build a wide shelf on the backrest height between the sofa and the wall. The space underneath can be used as storage space and the pages as shelf. Even an unloved radiator fits with some distance behind your sofa.
