Are you thinking about updating your décor? Is it time to redecorate, or have you moved and need to design a new space? If so, you may want to add a chaise lounge to your design ideas if you haven’t already considered the option. But, before you head to the store and make a purchase, there are a few things you want to keep in mind as you browse.
First, what room is the chaise lounge occupying? There are a few aspects to consider if it is the living room. They are comfort, style, and function. A sofa chaise offers all three of those features in one piece.
The sofa is surely one of the most important pieces of furniture in any home. Sofas are large in size and take up a lot of floor space in one of the home’s most high-traffic areas. That means they get plenty of use and are seen by guests that drop by for a visit. Therefore you will want to invest in a quality sofa chaise that is durable and looks good.
Chaise lounge means long chair to the French, which introduced this lovely piece of furniture to the world. They were popular among the upper class and found a home in many palaces. Historically they have been linked to a high comfort level for those who want to stretch out and lounge.
In modern times, chaise lounges are available to everyone, and there’s one for every budget. The various materials used in their design ensure a variety of styles to choose from. Their design is typically pretty standard, and the shapes are similar. There will be small variations from one lounge to another depending on the brand.
Shopping online can present challenges when determining the quality and features the chaise has to offer, but looking at the chaises reviews will help a great deal. Here are a few standard things you should know about the chaise sofa.
The design usually consists of a conventional sofa with one end being longer than the other. That end breaks the rectangular shape and forms an L-shaped sofa. This elongated section is the built-in chaise lounge and provides a place to put your feet up. The dual sofa gives you a section to sit and another to lounge.
Chaise lounges can also be purchased separately and serve as a sofa and lounge in one. This style is less expensive than the L-shaped design and much easier to include in your living room, so don’t shy away from the option.
The material used to drape the chaise are important since it comes into direct contact with your skin. Choosing low-quality fabrics shouldn’t be an option as it will cost you more in the long run.
Leather is a high-quality and extremely durable material. But, for the budget-conscious, it may not be in their range. Luckily, there are many fabric options, like microsuede, that are also durable and easy to clean and maintain.
