Sectionals: Yea or Nay?

You're in the market for new family room furniture, and you're considering a sectional.  This purchase is going to be a long-term investment, so you want to make sure you don't regret your decision later on.  How can you be sure that you'll be happy with a sectional instead of a sofa?  What it really boils down to is space, lifestyle, and personal preference.






1, 2, 3, 4, 5




While sofas and sectionals both have the same basic function, there are a few important differences you'll want to think about.  Here are the pros and cons of sectionals as I see them- these just might help you decide if a sectional is right up your alley, or if sticking with a traditional sofa is more your style.....




- Sectionals are welcoming, inviting, and relaxing!

- They boast tons of seating.

- Ideal for a large family, entertaining lots of people, and cozy movie nights.  

- Plenty of lounging, snuggling room.

- These days they come in an awesome variety of styles, fabrics, and shapes!



- Sectionals tend to feel bulkier than traditional sofas, and take up a whole lot of room (not always, but we are generalizing here).  

- They are often a big commitment when it comes to room design.  Most of the time they only fit one way, which makes it difficult to do much rearranging.  

- They might limit you to fewer pieces of eclectic furniture in a room. (This might be a pro for some of you.)  

- The seat in the corner can be awkward and annoying for guests. (Where are you supposed to put your legs??)


What did I miss?  I've never actually owned a sectional, so my pros and cons are purely observational.  For those of you who have sectionals, what are your pros and cons?  I'd love to hear your input!
