Why should you choose a sectional sofa?
If you are not sure about getting a sectional sofa, here are three reasons to do so:
01 of 03 Sufficient space is available
One of the biggest reasons why people prefer a sectional sofa is that it offers a lot of space. Compared to regular sofas, they offer more seating space and make people feel comfortable. You can easily put your feet up when lounging. The number of people a sectional sofa can fit strictly depends on the size of the piece. However, it can certainly accommodate a lot more people than regular sofas.
02 of 03 They can be placed anywhere
There is a common misconception that sectional sofas can only be placed in large rooms. However, this is not true. Sectional sofas work great in small rooms as well. This is because sectional sofas do not just look large but also accommodate more people. Hence, you can use it in both large rooms and small rooms if you need a lot of seating space. Place it in a corner for making use of space efficiently.
03 of 03 Helps to create an open floor plan
In modern homes, an open floor plan has become very popular. People love this home design because it makes the interiors appear more spacious and airier. However, creating an open floor plan is harder than it seems. An easy trick to create an open floor plan is by opting for a sectional sofa for the interiors. Its broad size and structural shape help to make the space seem larger.
What are the different types of sectional sofas?
When buying a sectional sofa for your living room interior design, you can feel a little confused. This is because there is a wide variety of sectional sofas available in the market. You will have to very carefully choose which sofa style will match your home interiors and then make the decision. If you are not aware of the various types of sectional sofas, here are a few popular options you can consider:
01 of 06 L-shape
It is very clear from the name that L-shaped sofas are sectional sofas shaped like the letter L. In other words, L-shaped sofas appear as if two separate sofas are joined together at a right angle. Commonly, L-shaped sofas consist of a three-cushion style and a two-cushion style sofa joined together. However, larger L-shaped sofas can come with a four-cushion style and three-cushion style sofa as well.
02 of 06 Chaise
In this type of sectional sofa, an extended ottoman stays attached to one side of the sofa. As a result, the appearance of this living room furniture is similar to an L-shaped sofa. They are considered ideal for smaller spaces.
03 of 06 Curved
If you have a large room and want to choose furniture pieces that will help to enhance the aesthetic beauty of the space, you should consider opting for curved sectional sofas. This type of sofa appears aesthetically more appealing and makes the interiors more elegant and luxurious. However, it is important to keep in mind that they will not look good in small living room interior designs. You will not be able to place it against a wall and hence, you will have to position it somewhere in the middle of the room.
04 of 06 U-shaped
Just like the L-shaped sofa, a U-shaped sofa is the one shaped like the letter U. Compared to other sectional sofa designs, these are larger and occupy more space. However, this living room furniture offers more seating space as well. Instead of having an extension on just one side of the sofa like an L-shaped sofa, the U-shaped sofas have extensions on both sides. It also helps to talk to other people sitting on the sofa as people can face each other when seated.
05 of 06 Sleeper
People add a sofa to the home interiors to create a sitting area. However, sofas are not always used for seating. Sometimes, you can use it for other purposes as well like sleeping. The sleeper is the perfect sectional sofa because it is designed for sitting and sleeping. Hence, you can use this multi-purpose sofa for sleeping when guests visit your home. As a result, the requirement for an additional furniture piece is completely eliminated. This helps to make use of space efficiently in small homes and reduce unnecessary expenses as well.
06 of 06 Modular sofas
In most cases, the sectional sofas that you will buy will be fixed and cannot be configured time and again as per your wish. However, this is not the case when you choose modular sofas for your home. These sofas give you the option to rearrange the pieces as per your wish and decide how the sofa should appear. They may come with as many as five pieces that you can rearrange.
