Tips for Choosing a Sectional

Tips for Choosing a Sectional

 

A sectional is a great option in a living area for so many reasons. It provides a lot of seating, it creates definition of the space, and it can be customized to suit the space and layout of the room. There are however many factors to consider before you purchase a sectional. It isn’t complicated, it’s just a matter of understanding a few key factors about your space and how you’re going to use it. So before you go out and buy that new sectional, you should know how to answer these questions.

It’s always important to know the size of a space. In order to decide how big the sectional should be, you have to know how much room you’re working with. Know the length of each wall as well as the size of doorways and windows. Don’t forget architectural elements such as a staircase or fireplace. If you don’t have a wall long enough to accommodate a sectional then consider floating it out in the room. This will create “zones” and walkways in the space.

Sectionals work even in small spaces but there’s no reason to place a large, oversized sectional in a space that doesn’t need a lot of seating. A keeping room or a second living area that isn’t used as often might only require a small sectional and a chair or two.

Knowing how the space will function makes all the difference in knowing what type of sectional you should use. In a casual space such as a game room or movie room you can go with a more relaxed look. A reclining sectional complete with cup holders will give you a real movie theater experience even at home.

Think about how often you’ve made changes in your home in the last few years. Do you rearrange the furniture a lot? Add and remove items often? Sectionals aren’t quite as versatile as a sofa and a couple of chairs. However, if a sectional is something you’ve always wanted and it makes the space more functional, then you may not feel the need to keep making changes.

Choose a style that works with the overall look of your home. In a more modern home with clean lines and contemporary textures such as brushed nickel or stainless steel, choose something sleek and tailored like this one that has high legs and a little bit of curves. In a more casual space with a traditional look you could opt for something with a skirt or even with built in recliners.

Following these tips will help you choose a sectional that will work with your home and function well for you and your family. However, you never have to go it alone! All you have to do is visit our design center and we’ll help you every step of the way.

Add Style with Light Fixtures

Add Style with Light Fixtures

 

Lighting is more than just a necessity. Light fixtures can blend right into the existing decor or they can be pieces that help tell the story of your home. Skip the standards and incorporate light fixtures that not only work with the style of your home but make it unique. Check out some of our favorites for almost every room in the house.

We can’t say enough about first impressions. The entry sets the tone for your entire home. If you could choose only one place to make a statement in your home it should be the entry. Choose a light fixture that will reflect your style and the look of your home but don’t be afraid to try something different. These are both great options because of their size, they’re neutral enough to work with most looks, and they have enough interesting details that will take your space beyond ordinary.

Bring the drama in your dining space. A chandelier over a dining table provides mood lighting while you’re dining but it’s also a chance to add some serious designer style. An oblong chandelier works best over a rectangular shaped table while a round one works well over a square or round table. We love these stylish options because they’re sure to add a dramatic flair to your dining space.

Pendants are perfect for the kitchen. Hang one over a sink by a window or hang them in a row of two or three over an island. Kitchens are often overlooked when it comes to the design in the details. Your beautiful new marble countertops and tile backsplash need accessorizing too. Add interest, not clutter, to the kitchen by accessorizing with stylish light fixtures. These are great options for the kitchen because they have some serious style without being too elaborate.

A bathroom doesn’t always need a vanity light, especially if it has overhead lighting. Wall sconces are great because they take up little space, add architectural interest, and provide soft lighting. Flanking the mirror with a pair of sconces also adds symmetry to the space. These sconces would work well with most existing fixtures while adding a polished look to this hard working room.

There are so many options for the bedroom. Just think about the overall style of the space before you choose. Is your bedroom more traditional with ornate pieces? Go with a crystal chandelier. Is it more rustic with weathered wood pieces? Choose something that combines materials such as metal with wood or rope. Chandeliers are better options than flush mounted fixtures when you want to create a custom look. We love these two options because of their soft shapes and the mix of textures.

Lighting may be a necessity but it can also be beautiful. Just be sure to choose light fixtures that are the right size for the space, work with the style of your home, and reflect your personality. All light fixtures seen here are from Uttermost and are available here at EF Brannon Furniture.
