Return of the Loveseat: Why a Loveseat May Be a Better Choice

Posted by

For many years, the loveseat was a household staple and a piece of furniture that could fit in a variety of spaces, making it a popular option for large and small homes alike. It then fell out of popularity as large couches became the norm – but today, with the rise of minimalism, it’s making a comeback. A loveseat is a great sofa alternative for tight spaces, whether you’re furnishing a small apartment or a larger house that already has a lot of furniture present. Here are just a few reasons why you may want to consider a loveseat instead of a sofa when furnishing your living room.

A Loveseat Makes Small Spaces Feel Larger

If you live in a tiny, cramped apartment with barely enough room for a kitchen table, a full-sized sofa could leave your living room bursting at the seams. Even larger living rooms can feel crowded if the furniture is just a bit too large or if there are just a few too many pieces. The great advantage that a loveseat brings is that it makes smaller spaces feel – and look – much larger than they actually are. This can improve your décor by giving you more space to play with, and you might discover a few new places where you can set accent tables or artwork.

More Versatile Than a Sofa – It Can Double as a Banquette

Sofas can be large and unwieldy, and moving them is an awkward ordeal. They’re also not very good dining room pieces. Sofas are usually extremely soft – which means when you sit on one, you’re likely to get swallowed up. That makes it difficult to position a sofa near a kitchen table or coffee table. Loveseats, in contrast, are much easier to move when necessary, and they’re usually quite firm. This makes them great for creating banquettes – all you need to do is push the loveseat against the wall and pull up a table.

Loveseats Fit Perfectly in Most Alcoves

So you have an alcove or a nook that you don’t know what to do with. It’s too small for a table, but it’s too large for a simple chair. It’s sitting empty and barren, and you know you could be putting the space to much better use. A loveseat is the perfect size to fit in an alcove and add that critical aesthetic element that your alcove has been missing. You can position it window-facing to enjoy the view, or set it interior-facing if you’d like to maximize utility. A loveseat is a great way to spruce up a boring alcove – which is something a full-size sofa could never do.

Sofas and loveseats are both great furnishing options, but they’re intended for different uses. A loveseat can create a sense of space in a smaller apartment, act as a banquette in a kitchen, or make an alcove more visually interesting. Find the perfect loveseat for your home today and try it out in your home – you might be surprised at how well it can accent a room.
