A great way to upgrade your next couch is to choose a sectional next, and if you are looking for more seating space, this is undoubtedly the choice for you. A sectional is all the seating options in one, from a loveseat to a sofa to an ottoman and a chaise. Sectional sofas often turn 90-degrees and have a corner configuration together with the other cushioned seat.
If you want to maximize seating space, just make sure that you measure the area correctly, and a sectional will be perfect for your room!
Sectionals are composed of many individual pieces of cushioned seats that can be rearranged no matter how you want them. If you are looking for seating bigger than a three or four-seater sofa, then a sectional is the most suitable for you.
A 6-piece sectional has a left-facing chaise, armless loveseat, corner wedge, armless recliner, and a right-side recliner with the addition of a console that can also include storage. They offer comfort but still you should be mindful of the limited floor space.
A 3-piece is slightly more prominent and the most commonly used in typical size homes. 4-piece to 6-piece sectionals are perfect for entertaining and bigger families, so if you are fond of the former and a part of the latter, then this size range will be what you want to begin with on your search. For a 2-piece sectional with plush cushioning, padded arms, and a pillowed back, the height is usually 37 inches or 94 centimeters. This height will increase slightly for a 3-piece sofa at 40 inches or 102 centimeters.
Remember that the height of a sofa will be all over the place and would depend entirely on the style. A 6 piece sectional, on the other hand, has a height of 40 inches or 102 centimeters. Now that you have decided what sectional couch to purchase for your home, it’s time to think about decorating it.
The most apparent thing to do is buy a bunch of throw pillows and add a rug underneath the sectional. Buying a living room rug is easy; all you need to know is your sectional’s width and depth. Visit our guide to rug placement under living room sectional sofa here.
For medium sectional, around 96 to 120 inches in width with a length of 120 centimeters, a rug that is 9×12 or 8×10 will be appropriate for this size. Leave at least 24 inches or 61 centimeters of space around the seat unless pushed on the wall on one side.
