We all want to make the most of our living space. Decorating (or redecorating!) your living room or lounge room can feel like the world's most overwhelming game of Tetris - trying to find that perfect sweet spot for your shelves, tables, TV and, most importantly, your couch! Never fear, for half the battle is won when you make your furniture work for you. Gone are days of the old two-seater shoved clunkily against a wall, as your friend the corner suite ushers in a new age of style, convenience, and comfort.
Here are our top three tips for making the most of your space with corner lounge suites:
1. Use Your Corner Couch as a Room Divider.
The first rule of Home Decorating Club: there are no rules. If you've come home with a beautiful new leather corner lounge suite, resist the urge to banish it straight to the corner of your living room, and consider using one arm to divide up larger or open-plan spaces. Corner suites can give gentle definition to spaces without intruding or breaking up an open-plan atmosphere.
2. Go Modular!
With modular corner suites, you can really begin to customise your furniture to suit your space and maximise the floor area of your living room. Their piece-by-piece design means that you can effectively build your own couch tailored to your own home. Measure up your room and get creative with your options - create a snug corner seat for snuggling up, or construct a mighty sofa to seat the whole family at Christmas.
The flexibility of a modular suite will also open up your options for future furniture rethinks. When the time comes, just rearrange your sofa's components and presto! A brand new sofa setup.
3. Chill out on a Chaise.
For the ultimate in comfort, though, you can't beat the chaise. A corner suite with a chaise offers you all the flexibility and style of a corner suite, and then just gives that little something extra so you can really put your feet up at the end of the day. A chaise is the perfect companion to our last two tips. As a room divider, the low profile of a chaise is perfect for subtly dividing your lounge area, and a modular or reversible chaise will help keep your suite looking sweet for years to come!
And don't forget, a smaller sofa with a chaise can always be tucked into a corner to give that corner suite appearance in a smaller space. Plump it up with a few scatter cushions, and you've got yourself a cozy reading nook.
