Buying a sectional can be a bit intimidating when you see all of the options available on the market. Driving from store to store can be time-consuming when it’s time to make price comparisons. However, shopping online has made it easy to find and compare sectionals that meet your lifestyle needs.
Before choosing a sectional, it’s a good idea to become acquainted with the room’s traffic patterns. That is especially needed for L or U-shaped sectionals. The chaise lounge is a long piece that extends from the rest of the design.
Therefore it needs to be placed on a side of the room where it won’t interfere with walking around. If not, you may end up with a chaise that blocks the path to the tv, or is difficult to navigate.
Reversible sectionals are another option that gives you the versatility to move the chaise from the left to right side, depending on your preference or the room’s need. That is a great option if you decide to move or place the sectional in a new space. Switching the chaise to the other side means it will fit nicely in any space.
U-shaped sectionals have a chaise on both ends. Tall guests and household members will want a longer chaise, so their feet don’t hang off the sectional’s edge. A curved sectional doesn’t hug the wall and provides a free-floating design that will impress guests.
Modular sectionals are made up of standalone seating, making it simple to configure a design to fit the space.
Most large sectionals have individual seating, but they cannot be used as standalone pieces. However, the consoles can be placed anywhere. Consoles typically provide cup holders and trays to keep items you need within arm’s reach.
Consider the design style you want in the home. Is it traditional or modern? You may want a traditional sofa in a formal space, like the living area. However, if the sectional moves into the basement, a more relaxed casual style is in order.
The color palette you choose will also contribute to the mood created in the space. Rich, warm colors give off a cozy vibe, while vibrant, cooler colors brighten and liven up the environment.
Because of the sectional’s size, prints and patterns may be too overwhelming for the area. They tend to distract from the ambiance, so work with neutral tones instead. You can then add bold colors with accent pieces like pillows and blankets.
Mixing textures and tones will add depth and character to the room. Leather and microfiber give the room a polished and classy feel. They are also easiest to clean. Fabrics are a great option if you want more variety in choices.
They‘re also the perfect place to stretch out after a long day of work. Many of them come pre-treated with stain repellents, so you don’t have to worry about guests doing too much harm after a few drinks.
