One of the biggest home design myths is about large furniture. People often believe large furniture can't be used in smaller spaces. That simply isn't true! In fact, sectional sofas can make a room more inviting and even seem bigger! By comparison choosing, smaller sofas mean buying other pieces of furniture. This can be costly and can easily clutter a room. Sectionals provide all the necessary seating while defining your space.
How to Make Your Sectional Work for Your Space
Choose a Proper Position - Sectional sofas can be large, so positioning is key. It must work with the flow of your space but not be overwhelming. Pushing the sofa against a wall or into the corner of a room won't block entry points or exits. Utilizing corners won't constrict your space, and you will be able to move around freely. Placing your sectional near focal points like windows, fireplaces, or televisions can also bring attention to those items rather than the sofa itself.
Spread the Sofa Out - Sectional sofas aren't always one single piece. Separate the sofa into functional pieces that are more manageable for your space. It won't clutter the room because it makes use of the original couch rather than multiple chairs or loveseats. Separating the sofa will feel less intimidating and won't block necessary free space.
Bring Your Style Up a Notch - Darker sofas can make a room feel closed in. Utilize light colored throw pillows to make the room feel more open and inviting. Throw pillows add contrast that reinvents the appearance of sectional sofas. Bring natural light in through windows and use mirrors to reflect that light. They can make the room feel larger. Accent pieces can make your space feel lived in, warm, and be inviting but don't go overboard.
Scale Down Other Pieces - Bare sectional sofas make a room appear unfinished. Of course, you'll want to add other pieces, like coffee tables, for function and comfort. A large coffee table won't fit the room and take up much-needed space not to mention look unsightly. A small coffee table, on the other hand, can get lost next to a larger sofa. The key is choosing objects of a similar size. This goes for all accent pieces like area rugs and anything placed near the sectional sofa.
