Everyone dreams of having a beautiful corner sofa in their home. Comfortable, large and beautiful to look at, they are always the absolutely star of any living room. However, there is often one big doubt that creeps into our minds when choosing this type of sofa: where should we put it to make the most of our space? Indeed the positioning of a corner sofa is important for enjoying a unique comfort experience and for making the environment in which it is placed harmonious. If you are still not clear on how to position your corner sofa, here are some tips to avoid making mistakes.
Do you love corner sofas but think that it is not possible to have one in a small house because it would take up too much space? Well, you don’t need to give up on the relaxation you desire. In a small living room, you can place a corner sofa on one of the sides of the living room, against the wall, thereby creating a corner and perhaps adding a coffee table, rug and footstool. To customise the dimensions, you could opt for a modular sofa, like the ‘Johnny’ model by Calia Italia.
Obviously in smaller rooms, neutral colours can also help to avoid making the space ‘suffocating’. The ‘Modula’ sofa by Calia Italia, for example, is perfect for combining contemporaneity, comfort and elegance in all homes.
Larger living rooms offer more varied solutions. For instance, you can place a corner sofa on the wall if you want to leave a lot of free space around it or complete the environment with armchairs, footstools, tables and chairs. Alternatively, if the objective is to make the most of your furnishing accessory, you can place the sofa in the centre of the room. The ‘Pralin’ sofa from Calia Italia’s ‘Gourmandise Collection’ is a perfect candidate, as it is completely detachable and modular in multiple versions, making it the ideal star at the centre of the room.
For open spaces, a corner sofa can act as a divider between the various areas of the house, becoming a partition between the kitchen and the living area for example.
In addition to the size of a living room, you should also take into account the infrastructural elements of a house. For example, corner sofas well lit by natural light will be enhanced to the maximum and an excellent solution could be to place one under any windows as long as the back does not cover the light. However, you should avoid placing one in front of a French window as this would detract from the brightness of the room. Finally, if you have a fireplace, you might consider placing a corner sofa near it so you can enjoy the warmth during those long winter days – and the ‘Gianduiotto Jr’ model by Calia Italia (the ‘son’ of the Gianduiotto) is ideal for this position!
