Sectional sofas are much more than just another dull piece of furniture to fill up your living spaces. You probably haven't given them much thought. At first flush, they may seem pretty boring actually. In fact, they actually solve some typical problems faced by families all over this great land. So let's get to it and see what I am talking about.
- Sectional sofas tend to be large. If you have ever tried to watch a movie with the kids sprawled out on the floor, or had company over and not had enough seats for everyone, then you understand what it is like to not have enough space for people to sit. Granted, many kids prefer to sit on the floor, but many times,if they had the option, they would rather be up on a seat . Sectional sofas simply give more seating space. This means more people can be up off the floor, where they would probably rather be anyway. And that's how they solve the first problem, which is not enough seating.
- The second problem sectional sofas solve is that most living room furniture is boring. Think about the typical living room set up. A couch dutifully sitting there with an end table at each end, table lamps just so. Then across the room, and a little at an angle, is an easy chair or recliner. For the daring, there's the classic sofa and love seat combo. Yippee! At least these can be arranged in the exciting L shape, or separated. Sectional sofas go beyond what this normal blather allows. Some of these even come configured with built-in recliners, sofas, love seats, tables, corner pieces, ottomans, and even hide-a-beds. Sometimes these can be rearranged in a variety of ways to do away with the boredom.
- Most normal furniture isn't very multifunctional, but sectional sofas easily solve this problem. When you sit on a couch, what do you do? You sit there. You can try to really live it up and pull one of your legs up under you. You could even sit at an angle in the corner. If you're really lucky and don't have to share, you can lie down. I know, exciting, huh? Let's face it, furniture normally isn't very multifunctional. With sectional sofas you really do get variety. Take, for example, the ones that appear to be simple sofas, but are in fact built-in recliners. These are great. If you want to you can just sit there as you are accustomed to, but if you really want to live it up you can recline! Grab your favorite drink, recline back, set your drink in the integrated drink holder, and hit play.
Along these same lines, some sectional sofas spice things up by having beds that are built-in. This is great for when you have overnight visitors. When not being used as a bed, you have a fully functional couch, but then viola! When needed, you have a bed. Can a normal couch do that? Not even close. Furniture multifunction at its best.
