How to shop for modern sectionals
Whether you’re hosting a dinner party or relaxing and watching TV, sectional sofas have multiple uses with just one piece of furniture. At Revolve Furnishings, our modern sectionals can be customized to fit your unique space and suit your personal taste. When shopping for a sectional sofa:
- Measure the room - Draw a basic floor plan of your space with dimensions. Decide where the sectional will go and measure the position of doorways, walls, windows, fireplaces, media, and other focal points
- Decide on the placement - Sectional sofas can be pushed up against a wall or as a floating piece, depending on the size of the room and the aesthetic you’re trying to achieve. For small spaces, modern sectionals are typically placed against a wall, while in spacious rooms, sectionals can “float” to create an intimate seating area.
- Set the overall style of your space - When shopping for a modern sectional, keep in mind the overall style of your home. Do you want a bright, clean look? An industrial feel? Mid-century modern? Or minimalistic and simple? You can draw inspiration from our showroom at Revolve Furnishings and get the help of our professional designers.
Different sectional sofa configurations
Modern sectionals come in different sizes and configurations, including curved, L-shaped, and U-shaped. The right type depends on the shape and size of your room and how much space you want to cover. With modular sectionals, you have several individual pieces that can be rearranged and still fit together perfectly, allowing a lot of flexibility for configurations that suit any space.
L-shaped sectionals - The most popular L-shaped sectionals consist of a sectional with a chaise. Ideal for smaller spaces, L-shaped sectionals can add style and functionality to a room.
U-Shaped sectionals - Known for ultimate comfort, U-shaped sectionals are perfect if you’re looking for spacious seating, hosting guests, and accommodating a large family.
- Curved sectional - Elegant and fashion-forward, curved sectionals can soften a room’s angles and provide effortless comfort.
