If you've ever tried to find the proper fit for a couch, you know how tricky it can be. If you have a small space in your living room, finding the right size can seem impossible. If it's a large living space, it can be a challenge to fill the room.
That's where customizable sectional couches come in. Allform's customizable sectionals are available so you can decide what style of sofa best fits your home by picking and choosing each piece, right down to the seat and back cushions.
What is a sectional sofa?
Sectional sofas are a popular choice with several different styles to choose from. Typically, they consist of two or three "sections" that connect together to make a whole sofa. While many traditional sectionals are L-shaped with a seat portion and chaise lounge (chaise sectionals), there are many different styles around to choose from. For example, some sectionals include a reclining sofa, or a sleeper sofa.
L-shaped sectional vs. U-shaped sectional
An L-shaped sectional is a two-piece sectional that fit together in one corner. You can place the chaise lounge on either side to make sure it fits your room.
A U-shaped sectional is not recommended for a small space, but can look to be an excellent choice for those with large living spaces. U-shaped sectionals consist of one large piece in the center with two chaises on each end.
A chaise lounge is a long seat on the side of a chaise sectional or standard sofa that is used for putting your feet up while sitting. A chaise can attach to one side of the sofa to give You can get a sofa that attaches on one side to the chaise, giving it a proper L-shape.
Modular Sectional Sofas
Another popular type of sofa is the modular, which comes in individual pieces that can be put together to form a whole sofa. Modular sofas are ideal for those with small spaces as they can be assembled in any formation with as few or many pieces as you wish. This differs from sectional sofas, which typically combine 1 to 3 large pieces and can be more difficult to fit.
Of course, since modular sofas are fully customizable, they also are ideal for bigger spaces as you can add as many pieces as you wish. Flexibility makes modular sofas one of the most sought after sofa options out there.
The loveseat is a smaller sofa -- ideal for small spaces -- that usually only consists of two seats. Loveseats come in all different shapes, sizes and arm styles as some include arm rests or track arms and some have armless chairs. Then there are settees, which are bench-style, one-seat cushion loveseats.
If your living room can't fit a traditional sectional sofa, a loveseat is an excellent choice.
A reclining sectional sofa is exactly what it sounds like. It's a sofa that reclines when the individual lowers the sofa's back and raises the front. Rather than using a chaise to rest one's feet, the occupant can simply extend the footrest by means of a lever on the side of the sofa.
Sleeper sofas or sleeper sectionals are convenient for couples who want a traditional-looking couch that can also serve as a bed. Sleeper sofas serve as an ideal option for those who plan to have long-term visitors.
Sofa beds are similar to sleeper sofas in the sense that both can be converted to a bed for comfortable sleeping. However, sofa beds are ideal for small spaces like a studio apartment or a small room. Single sleepers may prefer a sofa bed while couples prefer sleeper sofas.
