A sectional sofa is a perfect addition for anyone's living room. It is the perfect place to feel cozy and comfortable around friends while watching a movie or a football match. Since their popularity has increased in the recent years, so is their diversity. Picking the right sectional may be a matter of taste, but there are several general guidelines to follow. Stick with them and you will soon relax in the sectional you always wanted.
The first thing to do is to determine the size and shape of the sectional. Basically there are three sectional shapes available: the U-shape, the semi-circular shape and the L-shape. Pick the shape you like the most. But this is only the first step. Sectionals are modular and can include 3, 4 or even more sections. Ordering customized sofas may allow you to add multiple modules. Of course, the cost will be higher. It is recommended to draw a floor plan of the room where you want to place the sectional. Next, add the shape and size and see which configuration suits you most. For example, you may want a larger side of a sectional, in order to cover more space to the walls.
Consider the use and the object placement of the room. For example, if the TV sits across a corner of the room, a sectional is the best solution. In this case the rounded corner provides lots of seating, and everybody can easily watch the screen. The only problem with semicircular sectional is that it takes a lot of space. Measure the room exactly before placing an order. If you choose an L-shaped sectional rather than a rounded one, beware the disadvantages of the one-cushion square corner. It will be the very last seat people want. It is now the time to remind you that reversible sectionals offer the freedom of change, allowing you to switch the placement of the chaise whenever you want. This provides a better space management.
When you buy a sofa, comfort is everything. And comfort is largely dependent of the fabric used to make the furniture. Fabrics with natural fibers like cotton, linen and flax are breathable, are comfy and get softer with use. Similarly, go natural with leather for a timeless look and soft, buttery feel. Personal style should also be a priority. You can opt for vintage, classical sofas and for modern sofas, as well. You just have to browse the internet and find the style and colors that appeals you the most.
