Sofas come in many sizes and shapes. A large sofa set can look great if it is placed in the right place in your living room. Two seater sofa come in many different styles, colors and materials so choosing the right one can be difficult. There are four main types: U-shape (L-shape), L-shape (U-shape), Love Seat, and Two-Seater Sofas. Before you go shopping to buy a new sofa, it is important to understand the dimensions of each type.
Below are the four different kinds of sofas:
L-shape – L-shape couches are ideal for small rooms. They can comfortably seat two people in a shared living room with enough space to allow them to stand up. L-shaped sofas are not required to be placed on a separate table because they are large. Some L-shape couches have open armrests that allow for free arm movement. L-shape sofas are great for families with growing children. A single long sofa is too narrow for small children.
U-shape: These couches are great for medium-sized rooms. They offer enough seating for two. The seating area is longer than it is wide, which makes them perfect for a family with two or more children. If parents place a few chairs at either the front or back of a sofa, small children can comfortably sit on the ground. U-shape couches are available in many fabrics and styles including leather, fabric, and faux leather. Most U-shape sofas offer the same number of seats as do standard sofas of the same size.
Corner sofas: These sofas are often found in a corner of a living room. Because they are small, they can create a cozy atmosphere in a living space. A corner sofa allows you to use one or more of your other rooms, without having to knock other furniture out of the way. Most corner sofas have the same amount of seating area as a standard sofa of the same size, but they are much smaller.
Mini sofas They are often referred to as throwers. These sofas are ideal for a small apartment or dorm room, as they take up very little space. A standard sofa with a 32-square-foot maximum seating area can usually fit into a small corner. A mini sofa can be perfectly positioned in that space.
