The weekend has come! This means plenty of time for the series and movies you can watch after a hard working week. Make yourself comfortable, prepare a bowl of popcorn and let it fall into the soft cushions of your couch. Here you can relax and feel comfortable. What are the different sofas and couches, which design matches your lifestyle, see this guide that will tell you all.
Sofas for sitting, lying and relaxing
With a sofa, you bring more comfort to your home, watch TV, read or just relax in peace. The large sitting and lying area invite you to take a seat and stretch your legs. Unlike armchairs, long sofas can also easily be converted into sleeping accommodation for guests.
Tip: Set up in the middle of the room, a sofa with a high back makes a good room divider, with which you can visually divide your apartment into different areas.
What do you need from a couch, for what do you want to use sofas for most of part? Depending on the purpose, different models are suitable for you. Here you get an overview of some of the sofa types.
Corner sofas: space-saving for small rooms
Characteristic of corner sofas is the lateral extension, through which the L-shaped sofa protrudes a little way into the room. This additional cushion usually has no backrest. On a corner sofa, more guests have space than on a classic single sofa and you can make yourselves at the TV end at will. With its corner shape, the couch also fills in unused niches in the room, so that you do not unnecessarily give away space in a small apartment.
Tip: You can usually decide when buying whether the longer side panel should be left or right. So you can customize the corner sofa individually to your space.
Boxspringsofas: comfortable with back problems
In terms of comfort, box spring sofas are far ahead. They have double suspension and extra-firm cushions that provide comfortable support while sitting and make getting up easier. Especially the elderly or people with joint problems and back problems find the increased seating position very comfortable. So you automatically assume a healthy upright posture and protect your knees. The massive upholstered sofas are also sturdy and stable.
Tip: A thick boxspringsofa seems less powerful when it stands on visible feet.
Sofa beds: convenient for overnight guests
If you often have overnight guests, it is worth investing in a sofa bed. These models have an integrated sleep function. With some sofa beds, you can simply fold down the backrest to double the bed area. Other sofas instead have a pull-out seat. If the sleeping space is no longer needed, the guest bed can be transformed back into a sofa with a few simple steps. So you stay flexible and are always well prepared.
Tip: If you mean it especially well with your guests, you reach for a sofa bed with built-in slatted frame and own mattress.
Couch garnitur: multipart with lounge-flair
Couches are made to fill a large living room with life. These are multi-part sets that are visually matched to each other and create a harmonious impression. Often the trimmings consist of two single sofas, which are placed over the corner. Equally popular are combinations of a multi-seater and a matching armchair. Here you can usually decide between a two-seater or a three-seater. In the middle of the sofa group, you have room for a nice coffee table.
Tip: For a cool lounge atmosphere, you can also set up two sofas opposite each other. This also animates the communication, because all your guests have a good view and no one feels excluded.
XXL sofas: spacious for families
Do you have a big family, many roommates or often visitors? Then an XXL sofa could be the right thing for you. These mega sofas are extra large and have a deep seat so you can make yourself comfortable with your loved ones. In addition to spacious single sofas, there are also living areas in spacious U-shape. Unlike an Upholstered Corner, both sides are extended so that there is room for two guests.
Tip: So that the room remains freely accessible and has a nice relaxed appearance, you should leave some space to the sides and, if possible, do not put your living area directly in front of a room wall.
