What is a Sectional Sofa?

A sectional sofa is a type of couch that consists of multiple pieces. Sectionals may be arranged in a wide variety of orientations and include options such as chaise lounges, sleeper sofas, armless chairs, storage and more. This type of couch is customizable according to your needs.

Should I Buy a Sectional Couch or a Sofa?

This all depends on the size of your space and design preferences. Sectional sofas are a small living room idea that work in compact rooms and apartments as well as large rooms and basements. Be sure to measure your space before shopping for your sectional couch. Also, if you are considering a sectional that has a chaise, make sure there is enough room in between your TV stand and coffee table to walk around.

Sectional couches offer many features similar to sofas, such as sleeper sectional sofas and a wide range of upholstery options. Some sectionals have storage under cushions for blankets and throws. Storage is not commonly found in traditional sofas but is available with the addition of a storage ottoman.

Styles of Sectional Sofa

Sectionals are also featured in a variety of configurations (2-piece, 3-piece sectional couches etc) and styles including U-shaped and L-shaped sectionals. If you want the ability to play around with the piece's layout, opt for a modular sectional sofa. Separate the pieces so that guests can mingle more easily during parties, or push them together for group seating during a movie. Reversible sectionals also allow you to change the design, switching between left-arm and right-arm setups. Try using your sectional as a room divider in an open concept living room. They define the seating area and make a large room feel cozier.

Complete your family room with coffee tables, side tables, a rug and lamps to make the space comfortable for conversation and TV watching. Sectional furniture is typically more casual than sofas and is not normally found in formal living rooms. They are ideal for basements and family rooms where you spend most of your time relaxing, playing games, watching movies and enjoying time with company.

Other Types of Sectional Sofas

There are additional types of sofas to consider for your home. Outdoor sectionals are great for lounging around a firepit and providing seating for large groups. Look for fabrics that don't fade and are easy to clean if your lounge sectional is kept outside.

Performance fabrics hold up to kids and pets. Washable sectional slipcovers are another good option for active families that want an easy to clean option. Two cushion types are common for sectional furniture: down and down alternative. Depending on your preference, each looks good for many years with proper cushion rotation. Plus, fabrics come in different shades to best suit your other furniture and decor. Black, white or grey sectional sofas have a minimalist appeal, while brighter shades are bold and eye-catching. Leather sectionals are popular for a clean look and are very durable. As leather ages, it develops a fine patina that withstands the test of time.

Beyond the number of seats, consider the style of cushions. Are you looking for something that has a deep seat for laying down or do you prefer an option where your feet touch the floor?

No matter what style your home decor is, a sectional adds seating for many people and is sure to be the focal point of your room. Pair it with floor lamps, end tables and console tables for a space that is beautiful and functional.
