Here are five important benefits of having a corner sofa at home

If it’s time to throw out your old, dilapidated two-seater, you’re contemplating buying a new corner sofa for your home, but you’re not quite sure whether or not to make the purchase.

It is normal to be apprehensive about the unknown and if you’re not used to having corner sofas in your home, then it is totally understandable why you might be hesitant. The first thing you’ll notice is that they’re big and taking up a lot of floor space can be overwhelming.

Even so, there are a multitude of reasons why a corner sofa is a great idea for the living room. In this article, you will discover the many benefits of corner sofas and how they can fit into any living space.

With a corner sofa at home, you can seat more people

So let’s get the obvious one out of the way first. Having a corner sofa at home provides plenty of room for everyone and even additional seating for any guests who may be visiting.

When you have guests visiting, a corner sofa at home, such as our stunning Newport Corner Sofa, can accommodate around six people, or on a quiet night, you can comfortably seat three people with plenty of personal space for each person.

You may not need all those extra seats in your house, so you may think a corner sofa is excessive, which is a valid point. Still, if you’re the type of person who likes to kick your feet up or nap in the lounge, a corner sofa would still be a smart investment.


Even though corner sofas seem counterintuitive, they can actually save you space on your floor. In spite of the fact that you may think that l-shaped and u-shaped sofas are bulky and overbearing at first, they’re actually incredibly efficient in terms of space usage. When it comes to small spaces, corner sofas are a good choice.

As you can imagine, having two separate sofas would take up a lot of space in a small living room. In your home, a corner sofa will fit neatly into your room layout without leaving any annoying gaps.

Promotes social interaction

As corner sofas offer more seating space than ordinary sofas, it is only logical that they would encourage more socializing than ordinary couches.

Unlike a regular sofa where everybody is crammed together and looking in the same direction, the angled nature of a u-shaped or l-shaped sofa allows you and your guests to socialize. There’s no fighting over who gets to sit on the sofa and who has to sit on the less comfortable extra seating. It’s a win-win situation for everyone.

A superbly stylish outfit

It’s inevitable that a corner sofa will be the focal point of the room if it’s located in a corner. As a result of their size, they become the focal point of your room design and ultimately stand out from the rest.

Corner sofas have a wide range of distinctive styles to choose from. Aside from L-shaped and U-shaped corner sofas, 

As well as chaise sofas, such as the Hadley Corner Chaise Sofa from our Hadley Collection, you can also find corner sofas with armrests on both ends for a more formal look.

Comfort at its best

The same warmth and inviting comfort you get from a quality corner sofa won’t be found in any other sofa. Their size alone allows you to stretch out and relax in any direction you like. After all, they’re designed for lounging!
