A very popular style of sofas nowadays are sectional sofas. One of the main reasons being the versatility in design and function a sectional sofa provides. Not only will they work in any home décor, they are comfortable to sit in as well. On top of that, they can accommodate seating more people than a traditional 3 seater sofa and at most traditional sofas may seat 4 people.
A L-shaped sectional sofa can seat as many as 6 people as a basic offering. They are a good choice for large families or folks who like to entertain on a regular basis. Sectional sofas typically can be arranged in an assortment of layouts in relation to where you need it located.
Furniture is a very subjective thing. No one can necessarily tell you any piece of furniture is better than another piece of furniture. However, there are some factors in determining whether or not a piece of furniture, as with a sectional sofa, is better for you.
Some deciding factors include sturdy building materials and components, preference towards color or design, and a set budget or brand preference. Ideally, sectional sofas should provide an adequate amount of comfort because, at the end of the day, you will want to sit and rest your weary bones in a comfortable sofa.
Sectional sofas, along with furniture in general, come in two major styles: traditional or contemporary. Briefly speaking, traditional styled furniture is a timeless classic look while contemporary furniture utilizes modern shapes, lines and influences in design.
Style of Sectional Sofas
This style and look for a sectional sofa will appear in the form of a letter L with two lines of seating forming a 90° right angle. A standard L-shape sectional is among the most common type of sectional sofa being offered.
Similar to a L-shape, but typically with an additional row of seating. A U-shaped sectional sofa includes three lines of seating. Some offer a chaise lounge as a third extension instead of another section of seating.
As the name implies, a semi-circle sectional sofa is curved in appearance. A slight deviation from more common linear offerings, a semi-circle sectional sofa is something different in look.
A popular addition nowadays, a chaise [sheyz] lounge is a common name given to the extension on a sofa intended for lying down or resting your feet. An alternative in having an ottoman, but some designs include a modular chaise lounge addition.
Purchasing a New Sectional Sofa
Like with most large purchases, the price you spend is based off of affordability. Certain contributing factors will depend on brand name and materials used to build a sectional sofa.
Size & Color
Color plays a big role deciding whether or not a piece of furniture will fit into your overall designs scheme of your living area. In the same regard, size also plays an important part because there is a practical approach in determining if you have enough space to accommodate a sectional sofa.
