3 Considerations For Buying A New Sectional Couch For Your Home

Blog

If you're looking for the perfect couch for your living room or family room, consider a sectional couch. These typically seat more people than a standard couch due to the way they're designed. This makes a sectional ideal for snuggling as a family to watch movies or for entertaining guests. Here are some tips for buying a sectional couch for your home.

1. Choose The Style

These couches come in several different styles and sizes. This allows you to find a couch that fits your space and decor. You might want an L-shaped couch for a small living room so you can push it in the corner and maximize your seating space. A large U-shaped sectional couch might be ideal for a large family room.

You can also buy a sleeper sectional sofa or a modular unit that allows you to change the way the pieces fit together. Be sure to measure the space in the room and take the measurements with you to the furniture store so you know for sure the couch you select will fit perfectly.

2. Compare Seat Sizes

Seat size is an important consideration in a sectional sofa. If you plan to use it for lounging, you may prefer a couch that's low to the ground with deep seats so you can curl your legs up or stretch out while watching movies. You may want a couch with seats higher off the ground for a living room that guests might use since it's easier to sit up straight when seats are shallower and higher.

3. Consider The Fabric

One of the most difficult decisions you'll make is the fabric for the new couch. You could choose a solid color or pattern. You might even want leather, and you may know before you start shopping the exact color and type of fabric or leather you want. If you don't know, consider the decor of your home as well as how you intend to use the couch. If kids and pets will play and sleep on the couch, you want a fabric that's durable and easy to clean.

Consider how your choice of a new sectional couch will coordinate with the rest of the room. Think about how the color or pattern will match the carpet, drapes, side chairs, and tables in the room. On the other hand, you may want the couch to be the focal point of the room and update the rest of the decor and furnishings to complement your new couch.
