Tips for Choosing Between a Sectional and Couch

Modern Sectionals and Sofas

Looking for some tips for choosing between a sectional and a couch? Here are the questions you should ask yourself:

How will you use the space?

A sectional may be a better choice for a cozy den where you and your family will cheer on your favorite teams and squeeze in together to watch a movie. However, if you’re using the room as an elegant space to welcome guests, you may want to choose a couch. A couch plus a couple of armchairs will give people who are less familiar with one another plenty of personal space.

How much room do you have?

A large sectional can overwhelm a smaller room, whereas a couch would look just right. If you’ve got a large space, a sectional in the middle of the room can help establish definition.

How much flexibility do you want?

Sectionals typically have just one configuration, and you’re committing to a lot of the same fabric. If you choose to mix a couple of couches with armchairs, you’ll be able to reconfigure your space more easily and vary upholstery fabric and colors.
