When it comes to picking out sofas there are so many options to choose from: materials, matching sets, colors, cushion types, and so on. To make it even more complicated, there is the added bonus to selecting between regular sofas or sectionals. The idea of a sectional might be appealing to you, but is it the right choice for the space in your home? It might look great in the show room but once you get it home are you going to be equally as happy with it? Here’s some areas to consider when choosing between a regular and a sectional sofa for your home.
Is your home small, with closed off rooms or do you have an open concept living area with lots of room to spare? In the show room, the sectional might not look like it’s that big because it’s in this huge open space, so its measurements might be deceiving. If your home is older and is chopped up into small rooms then a sectional might look like it’s really out of place in that room. On the other hand, if you have an open concept home then a sectional might be perfect for separating one functional area from another.
The really nice thing about sectionals is they can often be customized to fit your home. For example, if the showroom sample has the chaise on the left side but you need it on the right, then often the furniture company can order it like that for you. Sofas, on the other hand, don’t have a lot of options to be customized. This is also due to the fact they can be moved and positioned where you need them in your home much easier than a sectional can be. If you’re looking for a solution that fits right into the structure of your home, though, a sectional is likely the way to go.
Do you do a lot of entertaining at your home? Do your children often have lots of friends over? If you’re finding that there’s a lot of bodies in the space you’re looking to put the sofa then that might sway your choice. Sofas typically fit 3 or 4 people. Sectionals, though, can fit a lot of bodies onto one piece of furniture because they utilize all space available, especially a corner spot where two traditional sofas would come together. You can solve the seating issue with two traditional sofas facing each other to ensure conversation flows and you can easily interact with everyone in the room.
Whether you choose a traditional sofa or a sectional really depends on your lifestyle and the space you have available to you.
