Things to Consider When Buying a Sectional Sofa
With so many options to choose from, it’s important to keep a few key things that we recommend keeping in mind when shopping for a sectional sofa:
Size and Dimensions
Take measurements of the room you plan to place the sectional in. Make sure to measure length, width, ceiling height, and entryway dimensions. This will help you select a sectional that properly fits the space without overwhelming or underwhelming the room. Scale drawings can assist with visualizing different arrangements, to help ensure a quality interior design and layout.
Fabric and leather are the most common upholstery materials used on sectionals. Leather provides a smooth, sleek look that is easy to clean and wears well over time. Fabric sectionals come in a wide range of textures, patterns, and colors to match any decor. Microfiber is an affordable, pet/kid-friendly option that you can opt for if it suits your needs.
Consider features that will enhance home functionality based on your needs:
- Reclining seats allow you to kick back and relax.
- Sleepers with mattresses provide extra accommodations for overnight guests.
- Wedge pieces can fill awkward angles and optimize seating capacity.
- Chaise lounge sections are great for stretching out and reading.
- Storage compartments offer concealed space to tuck away blankets, pillows, books and anything else you can think of!
Arranging your sectional properly within the room is key for comfort and visual appeal. Typically sectionals are placed opposite/alongside the television or entertainment space, which serves as the room’s focal point. Avoid blocking entrances and traffic paths when possible; lighting should also be flexible to accommodate various seating areas and to control highlights and shadows.
Sectional sofas span a wide range of budgets from a few hundred to several thousand dollars. Prices vary based on size, configuration, features, upholstery, and quality of materials/construction. Have a budget in mind and choose the best quality you can afford.

Styling Your Sectional Sofa
Once you’ve selected the perfect sectional, it’s time to consider how to style the sofa within your living space for a pulled-together, welcoming look.
Sectional Sofa Placement
A properly placed sectional can make all the difference in your room. Arrange it to promote conversation, TV viewing, and traffic flow. Typically sectionals are placed opposite the TV, an open entertainment space, or a focal wall. In the event that there isn’t a television to use as the focal anchor point, float your sectional sofa in the center of the room.
Toss pillows come in complementary colors and patterns that instantly liven up a sectional. Solid pillows in leather or velvet provide contrast to patterned sofas. Choose printed and textured pillows to match patterns and colors already in the room.
Throws and Blankets
Throws, which are small blankets or covers, can be a quality addition. Layer them over the back and armrests of a sectional create a cozy, welcoming feel with an accent piece to complement the room’s design. Texture provides contrast and helps define seating areas.
Accent Furniture: Comfortable Aesthetics
Accent chairs, side tables, and ottomans round out the sectional seating area. Place an accent chair or chaise lounge perpendicular to the sectional to define the space. Side tables provide convenient space for table lamps, books, and beverages, while Ottomans act as both extra seating and footrests.
Area Rugs: Anchor the Room’s Design
Area rugs anchor sectionals and define seating arrangements. Make sure it's large enough for front legs to fit. The pattern, color, and shape can complement the sectional style—rugs that are a lighter colour can make small spaces appear larger.
Properly positioned floor lamps, table lamps, and overhead lighting illuminate seating areas for reading while avoiding glare on TV screens. Swing arm wall lamps save floor space. Install overhead fixtures with dimmers to adjust brightness according to your preferred ambience/mood.
Hang appropriately sized artwork behind the sectional to balance out the size and color. Include coordinating accent pillows and throws in the colors of the artwork. Select pieces with cool blues, greens, and grays for relaxing spaces and vibrant warm tones for high energy rooms.
Frequently Asked Questions About Sectional Sofas
How is a sectional sofa delivered?
Sectional sofas are delivered in pieces and assembled onsite. For larger configurations, delivery teams will make multiple trips to carry in each section individually through doorways and hallways. Pieces are then assembled and joined inside of the room.
What is required for assembly?
Minimal assembly is required. Delivery teams will connect modular pieces and lock them into place. Legs or feet may need to be attached but this is quick and easy. Having two people helps navigate the pieces, and assembly takes 30-60 minutes depending on the size of your sectional sofa.
How can I arrange my sectional?
Modular pieces allow for numerous arrangements. Typically an L-shape fits well along walls. A U-shape facilitates conversation in an area you’d like to relax with guests. Measure to visualize placement of each part and remove your furniture legs/feet to make rearranging easier.
What’s the best way to clean a sectional sofa?
Refer to manufacturer recommendations. For fabric, vacuum regularly using an upholstery attachment. Spot clean stains immediately with a mild detergent, and you may need to use leather cleaner and conditioner to maintain leather sectionals—washable covers make cleaning easier.
