Can I add a chaise to my sofa?

What is a chaise

This item of furniture is also referred to as a chaise lounge. A chaise lounge can be described as an upholstered sofa that takes the form of a long chair, which provides enough space for you to prop your legs up. This term is an original word of French interior design descent, meaning “long chair.” This piece is currently one of the most popular furniture and home decor items. It offers you additional versatility in the angles to rest on the sofa. Everyone who buys a sectional sofa must buy a chaise to match.

Why you may want to add it to a sofa

Many people purchase a chaise lounge because it can provide them with a higher comfort level, especially when sitting upright. Typically, a single person can utilize one section of the couch to stretch. This benefit makes them optimal for days you wish to spend relaxing, reading, and sleeping. Fortunately, they come with a backrest at the end, and this can provide you with additional structural support for your back.

Difference between a chaise and a sofa

A chaise is designed to allow you to stretch out your legs fully. They are traditionally longer and are designed for one occupant to use. This action means you will be able to recline and have your feet off the ground thoroughly. Sofas are usually designed to allow two or three people to occupy the same couch. They promote sitting upright and are not as versatile as a chaise. Therefore, if you wish to purchase valuable furniture in group situations, you will not buy a chaise.

How to use a chaise

Lounge Chair Addition

A method you can consider for developing your chaise lounge is to use it when balancing out the other items of furniture that you possess, like a smaller sofa. It is a valuable method that people use to balance out small rooms. If you have additional guests coming through and require more space, balancing your lounge chair with a chaise is a good alternative.

Use as an alternative to a sofa. 

If you are dealing with a smaller space, such as a Home Office, it is an excellent idea to consider using a chaise sofa to provide yourself with additional space. It is very commonly used in smaller living spaces because it allows the user to stretch even in a limited area.

Use it in combination with another sofa.

If you have a sofa that requires additional space, it is nice to complement this with a chaise. If the current sofa you have does not fill out the room in a manner that makes you happy, you would consider adding this to supply you with more space for any additional guests you have.

Use in a sectional

The most common way to use a chaise is within a sectional sofa. Fortunately, these items or furniture are designed so that they will easily connect with other furniture items. This benefit will allow you to create a custom sectional, which is an excellent way to balance out a small space.

How to choose a chaise?

Figuring out which option is the best will come down to the décor situation within your home. Most commonly, people plan for a contemporary and modern style. Take care to use bright colors if you need a somber feel in the space.

Tips for adding a chaise to your sofa

Depending on whether the chaise you have purchased connects directly with the sectional sofa, all you will have to do is click them by pushing them next to each other. To prevent the sectional from separating once you have connected the pieces, it is good to use a standard method to hold the pieces together. An action that you can try is to connect them with zip ties. They are easy to find and will be helpful to tie together the legs of different sectional parts. 

Where to put a chaise lounge

A chaise lounge will generally take the form of an L shape. Therefore, you can put it in the corner. The corner will fit the sofa in a proportionally aesthetic way. It is also good to place this sofa on the corner of the room with minor traffic. Many people go this route because it can offer you additional airflow in the room.

Add it to a sectional sofa. 

A chaise lounge piece is always an excellent addition to consider adding to your sectional sofa. You will find that it is quite a common feature in a sectional article. You will surely enjoy this piece because it offers you some versatility in how you can rest on the sofa. With this option, you should be able to stretch your legs against the sofa’s back and sit with your body upright at the same time.

What does a chaise add on?

This is a practical way to extend the sofa seat into something more comfortable for people with long legs. Taller people will enjoy this more because it will allow them to stretch their legs while remaining off the ground. You will be able to add a chaise quite comfortably in any way you wish.

It will fit in any home and in any room whatsoever but you just have to make sure that the setting in the room will match the chaise. 

This French-style settee or chaise as they call it is perfect if you like resting and cozying down on a Friday night with a blanket. Plus its size allows it to be the perfect piece you can lay down on and wake up the next morning to do some cleaning. 

It is also a great piece if you have just recently moved into a small space but you still want to maintain class. It can be used in any room, whether it is the lounge, living room, or even the bedroom. With luxury and style, I am sure you’d want to show it off.

The sofa is generally made from solid wood and has some soft cushioning around it to make the sofa a bit soft with a warm firm edge. One thing you can be sure of is that you are not going to drown in a cushion when you sit down on this chaise but you also won’t feel as if you are sitting on some cold hard brick.

Durability and Price

When it comes to durability apart from being comfortable this chaise actually has a lot more to offer you. Being made with fabric upholstery it may not be the easiest to deal with if you have a slight case of OCD, as it is not waterproof or stain resistant. 

The sofa’s frame is however very balanced and made from strong solid wood which doesn’t give in easily. So you are certain that this sofa already carries a few years of its life. What to really worry about is the look of the sofa and if you will be able to keep it clean and unstained.

Feel

When it comes to comfort such a beautiful piece could never disappoint. I mean it looks amazing, why would it not feel just as great. So this simple chaise here is quite soft on the skin depending on which material you decide to get. 

I mean if you get yourself a denim line then of course it will not be as soft as the line ones but it is definitely worth it on both materials. Though the fabrics are not the softest nor are they the smoothest this chaise is just comfortable in any form it comes in. 

Let us just say that its visual appeal will definitely just give you comfort in your home and in your mind. It’s like mind control, this simple chaise though simple certainly doesn’t feel as simple.

It also has an easy slipcover design with down & feather or synthetic cushions that provide you with that comfort but are also very strong. 

The slipcovers are machine washable and you don’t have to worry about then fading away. However, when it comes to the pricing you may want to take a very deep breath because you need very deep pockets to be able to get this chaise. It comes at a very high price that you might just need to sell your sofa and your bed for this to work out.

Verdict

In conclusion, let’s just say that this chaise is very comfortable, durable, and very expensive at the same time. The pricing is definitely a test of wills as you will have to make up your mind if you really want this chaise because I bet you can get yourself a full-on luxurious sofa set in trade for this simple chaise.
