A sectional sofa is one of those highly family-friendly furniture pieces – so much room! – and today’s version is seriously stylish to boot. If you’re picturing those reclining jobs with the built-in cupholders, we can’t wait to show you what you’re missing. Here’s what to know when you’re shopping for sectional sofas, and where you can find the right sectional sofa for your home (hint – if you’re in Reno, it’s at The Find!).

The perfect sectional sofa for your home starts with the right size and configuration. Here’s a tip – bring a sketch of your space, including dimensions, with you when you head out to shop. Here at The Find, that’s all we need to make recommendations for a sectional that will fit your space and your style. It’s important to leave enough space around the sectional (across its entire length and around open ends), so you should include doorways and other large pieces of furniture you already have in your drawing.¬†Another tip – measure the doorways your sectional will need to move through on its way to its final destination to ensure you can get it where it needs to go.

the-find-reno-holiday-decorBuying a sectional sofa means making size and configuration decisions about L-shapes, U-shapes, stationary or modular, features like a chaise on one end, left or right facing details, and more. And once you’ve narrowed these choices down, you¬†can start thinking about material. At The Find here in Reno, we have some amazing performance fabrics that look as great as they perform. Some of our most sumptuous, stylish options are some of the most durable, which is a life-saver for homes with kids or pets. Plus, our sectionals come with a generous pillow count – the perfect place to incorporate some of those fancier fabrics (we love the leather and faux fur combo!) while you play it safe with the sectional fabric choice.

Here’s a tip – if you’re opting for something that isn’t a performance fabric, a higher double rub count is often a sign of a heavier duty fabric that’s reasonably serviceable.

Quality Counts

While you can count on quality when you buy a sectional sofa here at The Find, that’s not always true in every furniture store. Keep in mind these general indicators of quality:

  • Made in the USA with a hardwood frame (no particle board or soft woods)
  • Double-dowled, blocked joints on corners
  • Eight-way hand-tied springs
  • Heavy-duty metal connectors that are easy to connect and disconnect
  • Fair warranty
