With the arrival of the colder months, it’s only natural to want to make your space cozier. Think about it: rain, snow, and chilly nights are coming, and is there anything more appealing than staying in with family and friends watching a movie together? To cozy up your space and create singular compositions in your loft or living room, choose a practical L shaped sectional.

While U shaped sectionals are generally apt for bigger spaces, an L shaped sectional can transform even the tiniest apartment. Its generous yet compact shape fits into a variety of interiors, creating beautiful and unique compositions within your space.

Furthermore, our L shaped sectionals and all our upholstery pieces are family and pet friendly.

Our StainGard™ fabrics repel dirt, oil, water, and other liquids to prevent unsightly blemishes. No more worrying about stains and dirt; you can enjoy stress-free movie nights and eat and drink as you please. 

Even though L shaped sectionals are perfect for smaller homes, they are equally gorgeous in a bigger place. Regardless of the size of your home, you can set up a wonderful living room with an L shaped sectional. From choosing the right positioning to maximizing light and decorating, we’re here to give you all the advice you’ll need. Read along to learn how to set up your living room in a cozy and functional way and enjoy chilly nights in the comfort of your home. 

Let There Be Light

First of all, let’s talk about light. Natural light is truly magical and it can transform any place. Needless to say this applies to your living room as well. A bright living room has so much more to offer than a dark room. Many people use their living rooms for much more than watching shows and movies on TV. If you’re a reader or if you have family board game days, you’ll want to make most of the daylight while you can. 

Natural light is invigorating and energizing, and it has the ability to change your mood for the better. People who work in bright environments filled with natural light are prone to increased productivity and better mood — no coincidence there. Natural light truly has a wonderful effect on us, whether we are working or simply relaxing. 

Try to maximize light in your space as much as possible. You can do so by placing your L shaped sectional in a bright spot, being careful not to place it in a way that would make watching TV bothersome and too bright. A great idea to fix this problem would be adding blackout curtains. They obscure the place whenever the sun rays are shining excessively, but they can also help us stay protected from the sun. Even when we spend all day indoors, it’s important to get adequate sun protection, since UV rays are quite strong and harmful even with windows in between.

Furthermore, plants in the living room would definitely love having some natural light. While some thrive in indirect light, some natural light is still essential to their overall health and well-being. 

If you don’t have enough natural light in your place, you can make some adjustments thanks to artificial light. We recommend using exposed vintage light bulbs or dimmable lights to achieve a cozy and relaxing feel. Try to avoid bright white lights — they are usually used in hospitals or schools, and they don’t add a very relaxing touch to the room, especially while watching TV or resting.

Position Your L Shaped Sectional Strategically

Another important factor in setting up your living room is the positioning of your L shaped sectional. While bigger homes offer limitless possibilities, small places need to be maximized in a clever way.

An L shaped sectional is perfect for any space. Its shape allows you to create beautiful compositions and even divide the room in two should you have a big hybrid room with living room and kitchen. Furthermore, some apartments only have one big open-concept space, effectively merging the bedroom, living room, and kitchen all in one. In such places, an L shaped sectional can do wonders in reorganizing and dividing the place. 

You can either position your L shaped sectional in a corner to optimize space to the fullest, or position it at the center to create a singular arrangement in your living room space. Both options work, it all depends on how you feel your space should be divided. 

Tucking your couch into the corner will maximize space, since corners usually remain idle in most homes. This way, the center of your room will be free, and you can complete the look of your living room with other furniture. A coffee table, for example, is a great idea to have a surface for drinks and food and some storage for smaller items. 

Similarly, an ottoman can be useful, especially in the coldest months. You can use our Stockton Ottoman to store blankets, textiles, and other objects you want to keep out of sight. Also, it provides a sturdy and comfortable surface that can be used as a footrest.

Don’t Forget to Decorate

Decor is certainly essential to any proper living room. Even if you’re into modern and minimalist styles, there are a few touches you can add to your place to make it extra welcoming and unique. 

Plants, as we mentioned before, are a great addition to your home. They are relaxing and invigorating, and they have a uniquely calming effect on people. Rooms filled with plants can aid relieve anxiety and stress, and that is the reason many commercial spaces and even hospitals use them. 

In addition to plants, you can also invest in art or a beautiful floor lamp. Lamps not only add light to the room, but they also provide the opportunity to add a singular piece of decor at the same time. Similarly, a great rug can definitely change the feel and look of your whole space. Pair yours with your choice of L shaped sectional, and your room will look cozy and beautifully coordinated.
