Sectional or Sofa? We Help you Decide.

March 22nd, 2018 Paul Dekker

The living room is the central focus of your home, a place where family and friends gather to enjoy each other’s company. The design and layout of your furniture sets the tone for the type of atmosphere you wish your living room to convey. A major part of creating that atmosphere involves the placement of a sectional or sofa, where your family and guests will spend most of their time.

If tradition and comfort are your top priorities, go with the age-old sofa. Sofas offer limitless possibilities when it comes to decorating. Sofas allow you to fit multiple types of seating in your living room and provide the option to set up seating in various ways, creating new atmospheres in your room when you push your couch to different sides.

By choosing a sofa, the smaller of the two options, you’ll create more space for other accent furniture and home decoration. Sofas offer personal space for guests and leave exposed space in your living room, creating nice transitions for open floor plans.

Sectionals work well for rooms of all sizes; typically, sectionals come in multiple pieces that you can arrange according to need. Sectionals prove perfect for hosting parties or lazing about with the entire family. For the most use, find options with pullout beds, fold-down storage, cup holders, and more.

The most important thing about choosing a sectional is to have a plan for where you will put it. Unlike sofas, sectionals are typically more difficult to move around once they’re put into place.
