Your home should be a place of comfort and relaxation, and at the end of a long day, there’s nothing better than kicking off your shoes and sinking into a comfortable sofa or sectional.
Whether you are reading a good book or catching up on your latest Netflix show, finding the right furniture to relax in is the key to ultimate relaxation.
So, which piece of furniture is right for your home? Should you buy a sectional or a sofa?
First, there is no set rule to determine if a sectional or a sofa is right for your space. In fact, it might just come down to your preference and design choices.
Here are some factors to consider before you go shopping for your new furniture.
How many seats do you want?
If you only need two to three seats, a sofa would be a great option. If you want to add a few more seats, you could consider a sofa and a loveseat, or a larger sectional.
If you have two separate sofas or a sofa and loveseat, make sure you measure the space to determine that two separate pieces can fit in the area you want.
If you need more seats, a sectional provides that option. In addition, sectionals come in a variety of configurations, so you can determine which one is right for you.
How will you use them?
Are you looking for formal living room furniture that won’t be used as often? Perhaps you’re looking for everyday furniture that you can sink into every night to relax in after a good meal in the dining room.
Do you like to entertain guests, family and friends? Do you need extra seating space and multiple seating options? Do you think you might need a conversation area, one for watching TV, and another for personal space?
The great thing about home furnishings from Broadway Furniture is that there are so many options and customizable features. Whether it’s standard sofas and chairs, chaise sectionals for the family room, or shaped sectionals with matching sofas facing each other, the possibilities are vast.
Sofas and sectionals come in different styles, but most of the time sofas come in more formal designs. Sectionals are usually more casual.
You don’t need to be an interior designer; just create a living space that feels like home. Next, determine what kind of entertaining you plan to do in the room that the sofa or sectional will be in, and go from there.
What size is your room?
If you have a small space, a traditional sofa is probably the best option. Sectionals tend to be large and spacious. However, if you can strategically place your sectional, it could work well. You want to try to avoid cluttering the space with big furniture, so make sure you try to visualize how the furniture will look.
