When trying to increase additional seating space, it’s common to see most homeowners opting for a two seater and a three seater sofa. However, that might make your living room look more cluttered, especially for smaller living rooms. If you have kids at home, it might make it hard for them to move about in the living room too.
With public housing in Singapore becoming increasingly smaller, consider a L-shaped sofa instead which can help to utilize your space better while increasing the seating capacity. No corners are left unused with an L-shaped sofa. Check out these three different layouts for a L-shaped sofa in your house and browse for more furniture online at WIhardja!
Against The Wall
If you only have a single wall, placing the L-shaped sofa against the wall can add additional seating space without taking up too much walking space. Its the perfect solution for small living rooms. Hang some paintings above it to style your living room, creating a focal point. Make sure that the nails are sturdy to avoid any paintings from falling off the wall. Alternatively, you can opt for beautiful wall tapestry as a safer option, especially if you have kids or pets at home.
At A Corner
If you have a corner in your living room, placing an L-shaped sofa can help you fully utilize the space instead of placing a two-seater and three-seater sofa in the corner of the room. If you have a corner in your house like the one in the above image, fill the narrow gap with a standing floor lamp!
If your house is small and having too many items in the living room is making it look cluttered, you can choose a glass coffee table which lessens the visual clutter and provides the surface you need to rest your cup on.
In The Middle
If you have two halls or a large living room, placing a L-shaped sofa in the middle of the living room can help to section the different areas of your house, such as the dining area from the living room. You can also add a console table that is lower than the back of the sofa to define each space too. Display some framed photos or home decorations to add style to your space.
