Differentiating Between RHS and LHS Sectional Sofa


A sectional sofa is one of the most comfortable sofas available in the market. The reason is that these sofas incorporate a lounger in their design. What this means is that unlike traditional sofas, which are all majorly of the same design language allowing a person to sit comfortably, an  LHS L shape sofa  or an  RHS sectional sofa  has an additional lounger that juts out at the end of the couch. This lounger allows a person to extend their legs and recline against the back support of the sofa. This additional feature of an  L shape sofa  provides more comfort and relaxation to you. An  LHS L shape sofa  is one wherein the lounger is on your left when sitting on the couch. Similarly, an  RHS sectional sofa,  like the  Nilkamal Protean Plus Corner Right Hand Side Sofa (Brown),  is one where the lounger is on your right when sitting on the sofa.

Choosing the right  sectional sofa  can seem like a challenging task. However, you can decide between an LHS or  RHS sectional sofa  based on your room layout and personal preferences. To help you further understand how to place  corner sofas,  you can follow this little trick. The short end of your sofa should be aligned with the short wall of your room. Similarly, the long end of yoursectional sofa should be aligned with the longer wall of your room. Following these tips will help you find the right  L shape sofa  for your house.
