4 Options for Sectional Placement

Sectional couches can be a great piece of furniture in a living room. They provide a large amount of seating for the space they take up, can be stylish as well as functional, and often offer more functionality since you can lounge or sleep in them. However, if you've never had a sectional, you may wonder how it will fit in with your current home decor and where it will fit in your room. Below are just a few options for you to consider. 

Against Two Walls 

If you have a small living room, you may want to position your sectional against two walls. This can save space while increasing the amount and type of seating a small room can offer. If your only wall options involve a wall with windows, you should be sure to get a sectional with a low back so you can preserve your view. 

Use Your Sectional to Zone a Room 

If you have a large room or an open living plan, a sectional can be a good piece to divide the room into smaller, more intimate sections. Don't be afraid to float the sectional away from the wall if you have space for it. A large area rug positioned partially beneath the sectional can help define a cozy space within a large room. A U-shaped sectional can be particularly good at sectioning off a small area, as it closes it in on three sides. 

Direct Household Flow 

Usually, it is a good idea to have the sectional positioned so that its front faces the entrance to a room. This makes a room more inviting. However, you can also have the back face an entrance for several reasons including creating a sense of privacy or slowing children as they maneuver through the house. For an in-between feeling, you can have the backless lounge part of an L-shaped sectional face the opening. This breaks the flow of the space while not blocking it off completely. 

It's important to remember that while many sectionals are larger than couches, they tend to be more compact than furniture combinations like couch and sofa or couch and chair. They provide more seating while taking up less space overall, which can make them a helpful part of your home decor. Finding the perfect sectional for your living room can transform your space, making it more intimate and cozy.
