Should I Buy a Sectional Sofa?

There are several options on the market today for sofas, but sectionals continue to be a popular choice for many because of their versatility and comfortability. Depending on your needs, a sectional can be used at full size or shrunk down to fit the layout of your room.

Here are a few benefits of having a sectional sofa in your home to give you a better understanding of if it is the right choice for you and your unique space!

Room Divider

A sectional can be a good way to divide the living area from the dining area in a large open-concept room. This is often seen in contemporary architectural style photos in city lofts with floor-to-ceiling windows. Be cautious of using a reclining sofa for this purpose as the outside backs of most motion furniture are not sleek and clean but allow for that reclining function.

It is also important to consider the floor the sectional will go on and ensure the furniture won’t move around, causing damage to your floors, especially if they are wood.

Maximum Seating

Whether hosting a large party or having a small family movie night, having enough seating is always at the top of your priority list. Sectionals are suitable for formal and informal gatherings, and you’ll always have enough seating for everyone.

It’s important to note that a sectional will occupy about the same space as a sofa and a loveseat. When two people want to recline, one gets the loveseat. There is almost always room for two to stretch out on with a sectional, which is a major plus!

Flexibility within the Space  

Modular sectionals can be put in rooms with difficult access as they come in smaller pieces and assemble to make the larger piece. If you get a modular sectional where all sides are finished, each piece can stand as its own piece of furniture. This also allows you to change configurations for fun and function, like making room for your Christmas tree!

Conversely, a larger sectional with only three pieces will require that configuration. The size might not always work out if you want to put it in a different room.
