How to style a corner sofa

Corner sofas are a staple for comfort in your living room. Big enough for your whole family to fit on for a movie night or the perfect length to lie down and relax, there’s just no negatives to a corner sofa! But how do you style one in your home?

Our #myscshome customers have it covered. These pictures have been sent in by our customers, showcasing how they have styled their sofas. From adding colour to the room to rugs, we’ve got all the tricks to style your corner sofa in your home.

A Splash of Colour

A great way to style your sofa is by adding some colour to the room. Pantones colours of the year are yellow and grey. These two colours are a match made in heaven!

 Accessorise your sofa with yellow cushions and throws that match a wall or another feature in your room. You don’t have to limit yourself to these colours exclusively – You can try out different colours too!

Bright and Airy

Adding more light to your sofa can give off the impression that the room is bigger than it actually is. To do this, a floor lamp to illuminate the dark corners of the room. 

Positioning your sofa in front of a window will also allow natural light to come in and bathe the sofa and the rest of the room. Having raised legs on your sofa is also a tip to help add more light in!

Rug it up

Adding a rug will really compliment the room and add an extra dash of cosiness. There are many different rugs to choose from, including geometric rugs, fuzzy rugs and Persian rugs. Try matching with the main pieces in your room to create a cohesive look.

Accessorise the Room

Adding pieces to your room can change the room completely. Try adding pieces such as mirrors above your sofa to help bring more natural light into the room. Having a mirror in your room can actually give you the illusion that the room is bigger than it actually is, so this is a great thing to do if you’re planning on having a corner sofa in a small living room.

Adding in a coffee table with small items, such as a vase with flowers in, will also give the room a subtle dash of colour.

To finish, try positioning pillows with space in between – This is so people can fit straight into the spaces provided, and there will be no arguing about who gets which cushions!
