Elevate your Living Room with the L Shaped Sofa

The L shaped sofa - everyone wants one! And you’ll see it in almost every home. Also known as a sectional sofa or corner sofa, it’s one of the most trending furniture.

Everyone wants it but it’s important to consider many factors before you bring it in your home. In this blog, we’ll look at those factors and things to keep in mind before you buy an L shaped sofa for your home.


But first, the different types of L shaped sofas

L shaped sofa with a chaise lounge

This type of L shaped sofa has three components:

  • A 3 seater sofa
  • Two chaise lounge seats, one at either end

Wondering what a chaise lounge seat is? It’s a sofa with a backrest and a seat that stretches out on which you can rest your legs. This makes the chaise lounge longer, similar to what a diwan looks like.


Check out this L shaped sofa with a chaise lounge. It is made of kiln dried solid wood frame and has fabric upholstery on the back and the seat. It allows you to place the lounger on the left hand side or the right hand side of the sofa. You can create a perfect set up with this sofa and a coffee table in your living room.


L shaped sofa with a corner table

The other type of L shaped sofa is the one with a corner table. This table is either attached with the sofa or is moveable. The corner table can be used as a table to keep knicknacks, books, a lampshade, flowers, etc. You can either have a sectional sofa with a corner table or with a chaise lounge chair. This type of L shaped sofa is perfect when placed in front of the TV unit - a sofa and a table in front of the television.

L shaped sofa with an ottoman

The other type of L shaped sofa is the sofa with an ottoman. Don’t know what an ottoman is? It’s a low upholstered seat. It’s mostly square or circular. The purpose of an ottoman is to rest legs. However, it can be used as a separate chair or even as a small table.

In L sofa sets with an ottoman, you can move the ottoman wherever you want to place it. The best part - you can buy a 3 seater sofa and an ottoman separately and create your own L shaped sofa. You don’t necessarily have to buy it as a set.


How to buy a L shaped sofa?

Is your living room size and layout good for an L shaped sofa?

The first thing to do when choosing an L shaped sofa is to assess the space you have in your living room. Is the space enough to fit such a sofa? Will the layout of your living room allow you to place an L shaped sofa in it?

Look for the following features:

  • L shaped sofas that are similar on both ends -- both the left and the right side are long.
  • If you go for an L shaped sofa with a movable ottomon, a moveable side table, a movable chaise lounge, you can choose whichever side you want to place it.


Look at this L shaped sofa - with fabric upholstery and a frame constructed with solid wood and plywood, its left hand side and right hand side can be interchanged.


How many people do you want to accommodate?

Now, you’ll find L shaped sofas come in different sizes - 3 seater, 4 seater, etc. First, you’ll have to decide how many people you want to accommodate in your living room? If you’re looking to host a lot of people frequently, then a 3 seater or 4 seater sofa set would be more suitable to your needs. Similarly, if you have a large family, a sectional sofa would work better for you as it can accommodate more people and you can also move the portable parts around.
