Time to dispel myths – furniture stores offer a variety of stylish couches to decorate your home. In addition to the decor, this is also a high functionality. Comfortable, compact, fashionable. Someone jokingly called the couch the dream of a lazy person, and partly there is some rational grain in this..
Sofa-couch in the kitchen: varieties
The couch itself resembles a narrow sofa, not bulky, not visually heavy, but, it seems, even lightweight. There are samples of couches made of wood, there are models of plastic. Well, the upholstery will always be soft. Either genuine leather or eco leather or leatherette.
In fact, there are many types of couches. And they differ not only in whether they are equipped with a berth or not, and in the degree to which this furniture looks like a sofa..

Couches for the kitchen with a berth: features and functionality
Twin couches are not yet mass-produced, but a single couch may be sufficient. During the day it is an ordinary sofa, small-sized, stylish, interestingly decorated. And at night you can sleep on such a couch. Sleeper models are really comfortable. As the sellers themselves say, such furniture is often chosen by the owners of large kitchens. In order not to overload other rooms with sofas, they put a couch in the kitchen.

- It can be a corner model that does not require so much space – it looks nice and will very convincingly fit into the interior;
- With a berth, there can also be a model without armrests, which has only a rear back;
- It is used at normal times as a sofa, on which you can sit, chatting with family and friends (in fact, such a couch has an additional role – to make the kitchen a branch of the living room).

Kitchen couches are narrow: space saving
From French the word “couch” is translated as “little bed”. Not everyone understands why such furniture should be in the kitchen. But the kitchen space has long been no longer associated only with a strict stove and sink. This is a modern cooking room, as well as delicious dinners, family gatherings and even receptions..
Therefore, the decor of such a space is very often complemented by a small sofa or more elegant furniture, which can be said about the couch. They are often decorated in an exquisite and original way. Some models came to our homes just from the screens of Western films. There, kitchen sofas with niches for baskets of their twigs can be found in the house of every second hero. Moreover, the design of such couches, on the one hand, was not intricate, on the other hand, every detail was thought out.
A narrow couch will find a place in a narrow kitchen, and the comfort in the room will immediately add
On days when you spend a lot of time in the kitchen, such comfortable furniture helps out a lot – there is where to sit and even lie down a little..
For night owls, this is also an option, you can sit on a couch with a book – and it is convenient for you, and you don’t bother others.
Folding couch for kitchen
Folding models of couches are in great demand. Firstly, because they have a sleeping place, and secondly, because of their compactness.
Such models are preferred by young families who live in a one-room apartment, and it is sometimes inconvenient for everyone to huddle in one room. For example, dad fell ill, you need to move him somewhere, but not sleep on the floor. So you have to sleep on the couch, but if it has a folding mechanism, it is more than convenient.
The folding sofa couch is in special demand due to its ergonomics and functionality: during the day these are seats in the dining area, and at night – a bed
And in many other cases, there is no substitute for the couch..
In addition, folding couches in the kitchen can:
- Replace the couch or hard corner sofa;
- Close one of the empty zones;
- Make the room more comfortable;
- Take care of an extra bed for those staying behind;
- Provide leisurely teas with family.
In a word, such furniture is an excellent option for the kitchen. And if you do not consider the couch as an additional sofa, but would like to tastefully furnish the kitchen space, you can take a closer look at the retro models with wooden backs and armrests..
