Why You Need a Loveseat

If you are decorating, you may be wondering if you need to buy a loveseat. Some rooms will benefit greatly from the addition of this piece of furniture. Here are a few decorating dilemmas where a loveseat is the answer.

Why Buy a Loveseat:

  1. Because you need to create a conversation area: If you already have a sofa, but you need seating across from it, then consider a loveseat. This will complete the seating area in a way that allows a group of people to relax and talk. You could do a pair of armchairs, but a loveseat creates a cozier arrangement.

  2. Because a sofa won't fit: Sometimes a loveseat takes the place of a regular couch. If you don't have enough room for a full-size couch, then try a loveseat. Smaller and more compact than a traditional sofa, a loveseat will add additional seating without taking up too much room. Loveseats are usually around 63 inches long, while sofas are sometimes 80 inches or more. Take a measurement of your space to see which will fill the space while still allowing you to walk around comfortably.

  3. Because you need a splash of color: If you bought a sofa in a neutral color, add a bit of color to the room with a brightly patterned loveseat. They often come in more colors and fabrics than standard sofas, so this is your time to find a piece that will make a statement.

  4. Because you're fitting a sitting area into a smaller room: If you want to add a small sitting area to a bedroom, an enclosed porch, or home office, try pairing a loveseat with a small accent chair. With those two pieces, you'll be able to create a conversation area without overwhelming the room.

  5. Because you don't want to use a bench: A bench is often used at the foot of a bed or in a foyer, but if there aren't any benches that appeal to you, start looking at loveseats. A small one will take up about the same amount of space, and the addition of a back will make it that much more comfortable. Similarly, you could use a structured loveseat as a banquette at your dining table.
