Styling a corner sofa well, even in small spaces
A corner sofa can be one of the most adaptable items of furniture, with plenty of space for guests in addition to providing the perfect spot to lounge on as you wind down after a busy day. Rather than resorting to choosing a sofa that simply fits in best with the current style of your living space, it is important to choose a piece that you really love, can envisage as part of your interior for a long time, and really want to invest in.
If you are working with a smaller space, you will find that you can still easily incorporate the comfortable corner sofa of your dreams into your design with a few careful design choices. Opting for a piece that is raised from the floor with elegant legs will ensure that eyes are not immediately drawn to a heavy-looking piece of furniture that overwhelms the space.
Placing your sofa so that you can fully maximise the rest of the floor space available is incredibly important. Cutting off a large portion of your space with the chaise end will make your room feel cramped and cluttered; however, balancing out the non-chaise side with a stylish side table or matching moveable foot stool will ensure your space remains balanced, allowing the eye to be drawn around the room and appreciate each piece individually.
If your space does not benefit from a lot of natural light, placing a stylish floor lamp beside or just behind your sofa will provide some much-needed additional illumination and help to create a light, airy atmosphere. Even if your room benefits from large windows, a few well-placed lamps will always ensure your living space feel cosy and comfortable, even during those long winter nights.
Adding a few plump, well-designed cushions and a cosy throw blanket will elevate your sofa from straight-out-of-the-showroom chic to an ultra-personal spot that you will look forward to spending some of your down-time enjoying. Soft furnishings can really tie a space together, ensuring each individual element - from your curtains and wall colour to your choice of flooring - feels like they all belong to one, cohesive space.
A sofa is rarely complete without a functional and elegant coffee table. Opting for a clear glass design will look sleek without making the room feel smaller or taking anything away from the visual impact of your sofa. Dress with a few magazines, an elegant floral arrangement or anything that reflects your personality for the perfect finishing touch to one of the most-loved spaces in your home.
