Despite the fact that large sectional sofas are the best alternatives to traditional sofas for families, they still create a rift in room designing. There are those who love them while others won’t have time for them. Adding the polarizing fact to the wide range of options and configurations available in the markets, you are sure to get the worst mind-blowing case of design. Despite all that, to be honest, sectionals are the best that you can have for your family.
Finding one can be much easier when you familiarize yourself with terms associated with them. Here are two important factors about selecting large sectional sofas.
Get the proper-facing arm
Getting the proper facing arm is crucial because the placement of the arm will define whether the sectional sofa is suitable for your room or not since you will be joining some pieces. Right-arm facing (RAF) simply means that when you are seated while facing the sectional, the right-arm will be on your right hand side. The left-arm facing (LAF) sectional has its arm to your left hand side.
Large sectional sofas are usually made up of either two or more pieces. Generally, the price correlates to the number of pieces used to create a sectional. The fewer the pieces, the more reasonable will the price be.
Check your available space
If you have a space which can only accommodate a one-seat armless portion at the center, think twice about using a sectional. Even though large sectional sofas are an excellent solution in terms of space, if there’s no arm nearby, anyone seated at that position will squirm. Instead, a better solution would be to use a short chaise or a love seat.
