If you are trying to decide between a sofa and a sectional, there are advantages and disadvantages to each. You may want to begin by answering these 3 questions.
1. Is this room a casual family hang out space or a more formal entertaining space?
2. Is your space large enough to a fit a sectional?
3. How many people are you accommodating?
A sectional is a great option to provide lots of seating. However with a sectional, you can be stuck with one layout because of the way the pieces have to be configured in your space. It may only work one way, due to TV viewing, door openings etc. Sectionals are great for watching TV. Everyone loves to pile on them, including the dog and cat. They have that great snuggle-ability factor.
Sofa’s give a more open floorplan, which can be very nice. They don’t block off part of the room and can be very flexible. So if you like to rearrange your furniture often a Sofa would be a great option for you. If you are wanting to mix a variety of fabrics and textures together, having a sofa in one fabric, and a pair of chairs in another fabric can be really fun, and spice up a room.
