How to Choose a Sectional
Perfect for family visits and movie nights alike, the right sectional can make all the difference in your living room. The largest available sectional sofas usually seat seven people comfortably and are perfect for full and busy households. Smaller options fit well in apartments while still providing plenty of seating. Since your new wrap-around sofa will be the centerpiece of your living room, you'll want to carefully consider all your options.
Fitting Your Room and Your Budget
Because sectional couches usually take up more space than regular sofas, it's always important to measure the room before browsing. Many homeowners build their living rooms around the distinctive "L" or "U" shape of a typical wrap-around couch. While it may be tempting to choose the biggest, coziest sectional available, you should design your living room based on what's best for the space. Think about which configuration will work best in your room for movie night lounging as well as social visits and family time. Be sure to leave enough room to move about with ease.
Due to their size and functionality, most sectional sofas cost more than standard sofas. The increased cost typically reflects the material, number of seats, and style. While you’ll spend more for the sectional it will offer more seating and take up more space than a sofa so you are likely to need fewer accompanying pieces. Knowing how much you're willing to spend will simplify your search.
Find Your Style
Sectionals come in many styles to suit both modern and traditional decor. Low backs and daring curves are hallmarks of contemporary pieces. Go for a more classic look by choosing leather sectionals with overstuffed cushions. Wrap around sofas are made of many pieces so you can mix and match to build the best shape for your room. Opt for standard accent seating or add a chaise lounge.
Pick the Right Color
Since your sectional couch will be the focal point of your living room, picking the right color is extremely important. Look to more neutral shades like beiges, whites, or tans when you want to create a soft, relaxing feel in your living space. Want a pop of color? Reds, blues, or greens can liven up any area.
The Right Material
Your sectional sofa will receive a lot of use. They are designed to be used more casually than a formal sofa, so you'll want a fabric that balances durability and comfort. Some may want the resilience of microfiber or polyester, while others favor the eye-catching style of cotton or chenille. Additionally, families and pet owners should prioritize fabrics, leather or upholstery that's stain-resistant and easy to clean.
