Interior Design Tip #1: Corner Lounges

Buyers Guide / January 6,2014

Corner lounges are a great way to provide more seating in a small living room without sacrificing a lot of usable surface areas. They are also perfect for cat naps in the afternoon. When choosing the right corner lounge for your home, there are several things you should take into consideration.

 

MATERIAL

The material that you choose can have a huge impact on how much you use your lounge. For example, if you have a corner lounge that is covered with a scratchy, coarse or sticky material you are far less likely to relax while sitting on it, and will avoid using it on a day to day basis. Also, you have to take into consideration cleaning as well. If your couch cushions are impossible to clean properly you will always be stressed about stains. Leather corner lounges are a great choice in this respect, as leather is super easy to wipe down if something is spilled and can handle the wear and tear of constant use.

 

 

SIZE

It's essential that before you buy a corner lounge you carefully measure the space that it will be going into. There's nothing worse than having your brand new lounge delivered and realising that it doesn't fit in the room you had intended it for. Also, when measuring the space, you should measure the entry points of the room to make sure that your corner lounge will make it through the door!

 

 

COLOUR

When choosing the colour of your corner lounge, you should always take into account that you lounge may last longer than your current decor. It's best to choose a colour that you know will always suit any possible colour arrangements that you may have in the future. For example, neutrals are always a safe bet but if there's a colour that you love, such as cranberry, then you should make sure that the rest of the decor is neutral. This will make the colour of your lounge really stand out.

 

 

QUALITY

The higher the quality of your corner lounge, the better it's going to look after a few months of constant use. We recommend that if you're planning on getting a leather corner lounge you make sure that the leather is 100% top grain cow hide.

 

By following these tips you're guaranteed to end up with a corner lounge that will look and feel great in your home.
