4 Things to Consider Before Purchasing a Sectional Sofa with Recliner

A sectional sofa with recliners offers many advantages that customers find appealing: It’s flexible and customizable to fit your space, it’s comfortable, it’s modern, and it represents a no-fuss way to decorate your living room. But there are some pitfalls to watch out for too. Here are a few things to consider before heading into Colorado furniture stores to shop for a sectional.

Layout

The beauty of a sectional couch is that it is made up of multiple smaller pieces, so you can design it to be just about any way that works in your living room. Want a three-seater couch on one side and a loveseat on the other? Want some pieces to be recliners? Or a chaise lounge on one end? Have in mind what kind of a layout you’re looking for, and pay attention to whether you need the armrests on the right or left side.

Space

Be sure to measure the space where you plan to put the sectional. While the clean lines of a sectional can reduce clutter in a room, a too-big sectional can also make a room look cramped and crowded. You’ll also want to make sure you have space for the setup you want. For instance, if you want recliners, you should make sure there will be enough room for them to recline.

Style

When shopping for a sectional, it’s also important to keep in mind the style of your decor and the look you hope to achieve in your living room. Most sectionals tend to be pretty casual and offer a relaxed look, but some are more upscale or offer special features such as a home theater effect. Have your style in mind when you go shopping.

Fabric vs. Leather

Your lifestyle and budget will dictate the kind of upholstery you want. Fabrics such as microfiber or microsuede are popular and usually represent cost savings, which can

help if you are on a budget. Leather, on the other hand, will last longer and be more durable, but will also cost a little more.

What to Know Before You Buy a Sectional

Once you know things like layout, measurements, style, and upholstery, keep in mind that you still will want to see the furniture in person before making a purchase.
