Understanding Left & Right Corner Sofas

Imagine your corner sofa facing you. The side with the longer section extending outwards determines its designation.  If the longer section juts out to your left, it's a left-sided sofa; if it extends to your right, it's a right-sided one.

Choosing Your Champion: Factors to Consider

Here's a battle plan to help you decide which corner sofa will reign supreme in your living room:


The Room Layout: This is the ultimate battleground! Measure your living space and sketch a potential layout. Consider doorways, windows, and how traffic flows through the room. Visualize where the TV or fireplace might be positioned. This will help you determine which side of the room can accommodate the longer section of the sofa for optimal space utilization.

Focal Point Power: What's the centerpiece of your living room? Is it a stunning view out a window, a grand fireplace, or a cherished entertainment unit? Position the longer section of your corner sofa facing this focal point to create a natural conversation area and enhance the flow of the space.

Traffic Flow Tactics: Imagine the flow of movement in your living room. Will the longer section of the sofa block entryways or create congested pathways? Choose a configuration that allows for smooth traffic flow without sacrificing comfort.

Seating Strategies: How many people do you typically entertain? If you need to maximize seating, opt for a corner sofa where the longer section faces the open space in your living room. This allows for more people to gather comfortably.
