Sectionals are funny. They are something that a lot of people want but they’re not quite sure why they want it. I love a good sectional but they are certainly not the best solution for the majority of spaces.
Since I always look at function first, my preference is to place them in casual rooms that only family and close friends will be using. They are perfect for movie night!
It’s important to ensure that traffic in and out of the room is not impeded, and you have to be able to get into the sectional easily. If it’s going into a basement, it’s best to measure all the pieces diagonally to make sure they fit down the stairs. It’s not fun to find that out the hard way!
