Buying a sectional can be a little intimidating when you see all the options available on the market. Driving from one store to another can be time-consuming when making price comparisons. However, online shopping makes it easy to find and compare the pieces that meet your lifestyle needs.
Before choosing a cross section, it’s a good idea to get to know the traffic pattern of the room. That’s especially needed for L or U-shaped cross-sections. The chaise longue is the long section that extends from the rest of the design.
Therefore it needs to be placed on the side of the room that does not interfere with walking. Otherwise, you may end up with a recliner that blocks the path to the tv, or is difficult to navigate.
Reversible sections are another option that gives you the versatility to move your recliner from left to right, depending on your preferences or room needs. It’s a great choice if you decide to move or place the cross-section in a new space. Switching the recliner to the other side means it fits in any space.
The U-shaped cross-section has chaises at both ends. Tall guests and household members will want a longer recliner, so their feet don’t hang over the edge of the piece. The curved section stays off the wall and provides a free-floating design that will impress guests.
The modular section consists of freestanding seats, making it easy to configure the design to suit the space.
Most large sections have individual seats, but cannot be used as standalone sections. However, consoles can be placed anywhere. Consoles usually provide cup holders and a tray to keep the items you need within arm’s reach.
Consider the design style you want in your home. Is it traditional or modern? You may want a traditional sofa in a formal space, like the living room. However, if the cross section is moved to the basement, a more relaxed casual style will be more regular.
The color palette you choose will also contribute to the atmosphere created in the space. Rich, warm colors give off a comfortable vibe, while bright, cool colors brighten and liven up any environment.
Due to the size of the sections, prints and patterns may be too much for the area. They tend to distract from the scene, so work in a neutral tone. You can then add bold colors with accent pieces such as pillows and blankets.
Mixing textures and tones will add depth and character to a room. Leather and microfiber give a room a refined, classy feel. They are also the easiest to clean. Fabric is a great option if you want more variety in your choices.
They are also the perfect place to lie down after a hard day’s work. Many of them come pre-treated with stain repellents, so you don’t have to worry about guests doing too much damage after a few drinks.
