Sectional sofas provide maximum comfort and flexibility for seating areas. Get the full movie experience in your entertainment room by opting for a large sectional sofa for lounging or upgrade your living room to accommodate more guests. A sectional sofa works for most homes, as long as you buy or have one custom-made to suit your lifestyle.
Different sections of a sectional sofa may be bought according to your needs and your space limitations. Familiarize yourself with typical sectional sofa terminology. Right arm facing (RAF) sections have an arm on the right, while left arm facing sections (LAF) have the arm on the left. Some sectional sofas also have chaise lounges and foot rests for those who like to prop up their feet. Aside from the usual corner seats, you may also opt for a rounded or wedge-shaped corner seat.
The large scale of a sectional sofa contributes to its comfort level. Sofas with deeper seats and chunkier cushions usually provide more luxury and comfort. Some sectional sofas can be reclined, thus offering a different level of relaxation.
The arrangement of your sectional sofa and the other furniture in the room will largely depend on the size of the room, entry points and where your entertainment system is located. A TV positioned in the corner of a room may benefit from a sectional sofa with a rounded or wedge-shaped corner seat, as this will provide a better view of the screen. Small spaces may be limited to having a section sofa flushed against one or two walls of the room. However, if you have a large space, you could place your sectional sofa in the middle of the roo, as long as there is at least three feet of walking space for the main passageways around the sofa. This can create an airy and luxurious ambiance.
