If you don’t have a lot of space but you still want a couch, consider modern sectional sofas for small spaces. Sectional sofas allow you to save room by adjusting the separate modules to fit the space available. Not all sectional sofas are designed for large rooms, in fact one of their great advantages is that they are capable of providing all your seating in one small area, even a corner.
Sectional sofas will fit any room because you can alter their shape to suit your own requirements. This way, you design your furniture to fit your living space, you do not design your living space to fit around your furniture.
The sofa modules are easily configured into almost any required shape, don’t think you can only fit them in right-angled corners. Modern units will work in any angle, you can even buy curved sectional sofas these days. Of course, you can also put sectional sofas in the middle of the room, don’t lock yourself into corners only.
Contemporary sectional sofas have very flexible seating patterns. You need only buy the pieces you want, so there’s no waste and expenditure is kept down. The sofas are also expandable if you move, in that you can scale them up to larger spaces or even scale them down if your next place is smaller. You can also scale them up where you are now, if you find the need. For example, you could buy another sofa module or even an armchair to match.
The best sectional sofas have a great choice of styles and fabrics. You can choose from leather, cloth, microfiber, nylon and vinyl. Changing color is as easy as changing the covers. That’s really useful if you change the style of your room or even if you just get tired of the old decor.
Sectional sofas have become high fashion once more as people downsize their living space or see what else they can squeeze into their present accommodation instead of moving house. The modern sectional sofas, though, are far better than many of the ones that were around 30 years ago and more. Technology and design has made tremendous advances since then.
Buying modular units allows you to put together something unique at a low price. No longer will you visit a friend’s home and find that they have the same furniture as you. You can arrange (and rearrange) the seating to your heart’s desire.
Don’t forget, you can usually find covers to match if you add new seats, have a spillage of coffee or even just feel like a change.
Comfortable sectional sofas are essential but you’ll find that most of them are just as comfortable as conventional chairs and couches. You won’t have any trouble finding seating that’s suitable for big people, either. The cushions can be of foam rubber, internally sprung or even filled with down. If you want, you can have different types of cushion to suit different family members.
Speaking of the family, sectional sofas can allow you to seat five people where you used to sit three. Families and friends find it easier to talk when seated closer together instead of calling across the room and often facing away from each other.
Togetherness makes for great home theater, too! You don’t have to fight for a place on one small couch, everyone gets their own cinema seat.
Many people like to recline when they relax, whether it’s to read a book, listen to music or watch television. Sectional sofas, even in small spaces, can have an added recliner and also built-in drink holders and magazine racks.
The recliner could be an added chaise end or simply an ottoman in front where you can put your feet up and relax. Ottomans allow you to move the chaise part to either end of the sofa, or even the middle if required. Alternatively, you could get one long ottoman that everyone can share. Some ottomans are part coffee table and part footrest. Many even have hidden storage space inside.
As well as having recliners, you could go the whole nine yards and add a sleeper sofa unit for extra versatility. You could use the sleeper sofa for overnight guests or even as your own bed if you live in a studio apartment or a small loft.
The greatest thing about modern sectional sofas for small spaces is that you can usually find an arrangement that is perfect for you. However, in the event of real difficulty, you don’t have to buy your sofa ready made, you can have one custom built to your requirements.
When your sectional sofa is delivered, you will probably find it easy to assemble but it’s also possible to have it assembled for you on delivery. That last option often costs more but you may be able to negotiate a discount.
