It is crucial that you measure your space and work out the ideal size that your sofa needs to be. Think about how many people you need to seat regularly and where the best placement in the room would be (keeping in mind doorways and other furniture pieces). It's a great idea to measure your current sofa to get an idea or alternatively, measure out on the ground with masking tape or newspaper different sizes. This will help you visualise the item in the room and how you move around it. Secondly, even though it may fit within your required space the overall proportion will impact the look within the room. A sofa with chunkier or heavier overall proportions will appear larger in the room, whilst a sofa that is raised from the floor and has slim arms and seat proportions will appear lighter and visually consume less space. Use this to your advantage, look for heavier styles if you are looking to fill a large room and vice versa, and be aware of the impact the showroom has on the look of the sofa, in general showrooms will be very open and have high ceilings, making all sofas look smaller than they are.
Sectional sofas can actually save you money in the long run. Many people that go with a standard sofa end up needing to add a chair or loveseat to fill out their living room. Sectionals can sometimes eliminate the need for that extra loveseat or chair, depending upon the size of the space. Sectional sofas are very dynamic options in this way, because they can totally fill up a room or space.
The sofa you choose is one of the most important pieces of furniture you can own. This piece of furniture has been one of the most important pieces of furniture humanity has had for many centuries. In fact it is said that even the Romans had some time of sofa, although this piece of furniture has certainly evolved since it first came out. I don't think the Romans would have ever thought that their idea would eventually become the sofa sectional sleeper we now have.
