Layout trends come and go, but the L-shaped sofa setting remains forever timeless. It’s an extremely versatile setting that optimizes the layout to the fullest no matter the size or the scale of a space. If you’ve got a living room that needs to be furnished, here are all the reasons why you should consider the L-shaped sofa formation:
1. Can be used in all room sizes
The L-shaped setting is extremely versatile. It is perfectly suited for both large as well as small spaces. It looks natural in all settings and doesn’t take away from the quality of a space. If you look at this image, you’ll see how the L-shaped layout easily makes sense of the larger than average space with ease. Similarly, it can complement small spaces just as well.
2. Has a good tail ending
Not many people are aware of this, but one thumb rule of furnishing homes is that your furniture must have a nice tail end – a metaphorical full-stop of sorts – to make sense of the space. It’s usually introduced in the form of an end table in most living room set ups, but an L-shaped sectional can be naturally arranged in a format that acts as an inherent full-stop element!
3. Utilizes small corners well
One of the greatest advantages of the L-shaped sofa layouts is that it is really great at utilizing corners that would otherwise seem quite empty. This is especially relevant for inverted L-shaped sectionals that are furnished in small corners. They fit snugly within the space and complement the context seamlessly. The one featured in this image is a pretty great example.
4. Can be executed in diverse furniture types
Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to invest in a large L-shaped sectional to get the L-shaped layout in your living rooms. In fact, it’s one of the best choices because it’s very versatile in execution and can be carried out with a number of furniture choices. You can make it with a chesterfield and a loveseat in large homes. Similarly, you can also use lateral ottomans and 2-seaters in a small home.
5. Can be easily accented
Another great quality of the L-shaped layout is that it can be easily accented with all sorts of interior design elements. You can complement it with an accent wingback chair, or you can opt for a more elaborate bar-unit with stools – it totally depends on the size and visual quality of your spaces.
