When you first start shopping for a new sofa it can be easy to get stuck thinking only of traditional pieces. But a sectional sofa can offer you a lot of versatility and many other benefits. It’s important to know the advantages and disadvantages in order to decide whether a sofa or a sectional is the best option for your particular situation. Here are some of the benefits you will find with a sectional sofa.
A sectional can help you make better use of your space and save space in many instances. Some of our sectionals include a reversible chaise which can be positioned in the most convenient, space saving direction. Another useful factor about a sectional is that is can be maneuvered so that it fits into tight corners, or made to fit in smaller rooms. In some houses the sofa might not fit into a single room so the sections can be placed in different rooms of the house. A sectional can also fit better in a smaller room than a sofa and chair combination.
A sectional sofa can provide great versatility and a variety of configurations can be achieved. They can be arranged to fit into small spaces or arranged in a straight line. The removable chaise provides much versatility. Some sectional sofas also come with an ottoman that allows you to relax or nap while your feet are up. Some may come with sofas that also have a pull out bed which adds to their versatility. Just be sure to allow room for these types of features should you prefer a sofa with a bed or a recliner included in its design.
Provide Extra Seating Options
Sectionals can help you define a room’s area much more effectively. If you prefer to create a casual atmosphere, instead of a formal one, a sectional is the perfect choice. It offers a great place for families to gather for a movie night and allows everyone to be in close. It brings everyone together whether you are watching the latest flick, or a favorite team play. This can give a nice surrounding view of the television from a variety of seats.
Easy to Move
One of the basic differences between a sofa and a sectional is that the sofa can be much more difficult to move. A sectional is designed to break apart into pieces which means you are moving smaller sections around. Each of the sections are going to weight a whole lot less than the entire sofa which makes it much easier to transport between rooms if you decide you need to move it. The smaller pieces also fit better through a doorway which can be rather narrow.
