The best corner sofas for small living rooms

Corner sofas are an incredibly popular sofa choice, particularly for small living rooms as they offer the luxury of lounging and more legroom without taking up any more floor space than a standard sofa (lengthways at least!)


When it comes to picking the right corner sofa for you, there are several factors you need to consider to help find your perfect match.

Why choose a corner sofa? 

Style meets functionality when it comes to corner sofas, making it easy to see why they’re such a household favourite.


Naturally, they can be pushed into the corner of any room or used as a room divider in open plan living.


Rather than having multiple seats or sofas, you can get the best of both worlds with a comfortable and cost-effective corner sofa. 


If you do have a smaller sized living room, corner sofas are loved for their space-enhancing effect.


Now, why wouldn’t you want to make your lounge look and feel bigger?! Creating a sense of space and comfort is simple when you invest in a corner or l-shaped sofa.


Whether you’re looking for some room layout inspiration or just want to know more about corner sofas (also known as a ‘modular sofa’) we’ve got a helpful guide that should tell you everything you need to know. 


Modular sofas are a fantastically flexible option as they offer you the freedom to move parts of the sofa around, so you can tweak the layout to suit. After all, convenience is key.  

Things to consider with corner sofas 

Whilst corner sofas are a great solution for many homes, they won’t be the best choice for every living room for varying reasons.


For starters, some room layouts don’t lend themselves to a corner sofa, possibly because of the room shape or even awkward doorways that prevent a corner sofa from working in those spaces.


This is also why it’s essential to measure correctly – both your space available and of course the sofa you’re looking to purchase!
