WHAT IS A SECTIONAL COUCH?

When it comes to a couch, there are many do’s and don’ts. Once you have chosen the perfect corner sofa for your home, the challenging part is really where to place it and how to go about styling it. Corner couches are really a great option for your living room if you are looking for a couch with some extra seating space. Corner sofas also have a canny way of adding comfort to your living room and makes it feel warm and inviting. We have put together a few things to consider before purchasing a corner couch.
 
First things first, let’s start with the basics, what is a sectional sofa? A sectional sofa or sectional couch is a couch that is composed of two or more pieces that are put together to create one couch or sofa. Most sectional couches are created from two to as many as six separate pieces, these pieces can either be fixed, meaning they fit together in only one configuration, or modular, which means they can be combined together in a number of different ways. Generally speaking, the more pieces, the more expensive the sectional couch will be, though having reclining features on your corner couch and certain upholstery options can also increase the price of your sectional couch.
 

LEFT-FACING SECTIONAL 

Different sectional couch pieces are typically described as either left facing or right facing, depending on their orientation. To determine whether a chaise couch is left or right facing, stand facing your sectional couch. If the sofa arm is on the left, you’re looking at a left facing chaise sectional piece.

 

RIGHT-FACING SECTIONAL 

To determine whether a sectional sofa piece is left facing or right facing, stand facing the sofa piece in your livening room or furniture shop if you are still shopping for the perfect sectional couch. If the sofa arm is on the right side, you’re looking at a right-facing sectional piece. In modular sectionals, some pieces of sofa might not have arms and would not be described as either left or right facing.

STEP 1: PREPARATION

It is very important to measure your space before ordering your corner couch, this will ensure that your brand new corner sofa will be the right fit for your livening room. Make sure to know the exact measurements for all of the walls in your living room. Sectional couches are typically great in the corner of your living room, up against two walls.
 
Create a basic floor plan with the corner couch you have in mind. Lay out the style, shape and size of the corner couch to help you visualize what it will look like in your living room. Doing this will also help you decide where to place the rest of the furniture items in your livening room such as your coffee table or side tables.
 
If you are looking for a sectional sofa for your living room, consider where your TV currently is. The placement of your TV will need to be considered when purchasing a corner couch. Make sure that the design and layout of the corner sofa allows for laid back lounging, most importantly make sure that every seat has a good view of the TV.
 

STEP 2: UPHOLSTERY OPTIONS

Decisions, decisions, decisions — when it comes to upholstery, the endless number of upholstery choices can make picking the right fabric quite daunting. Pattern or solid? Bold colour or neutral? Fabric or leather? There are infinite possibilities to express yourself while setting the tone of a room with upholstery.
