The fabric of the sofa also plays a very important role in its selection. You have to decide whether your sofa will be used for formal occasions or will be used very regularly. Leather recliners can be great but may pinch your pockets slightly harder. If you have kids, the sofa will get some roughing up frequently. Children tend to drop food, juices and other junk on the sofa. The sofa, in such cases must be very simple and practical. It may have busy prints to hide the stains and dark colors to keep people from noticing the little \"accidents\", as the best detergents and dry cleaners may not be able to remove them completely.
The last piece you see with some sectional sofas are large ottomans. Since my experience shows that most people like to stretch out on a sofa, an ottoman allows this without taking up any more room on the sofa itself. This is a great way to expand the sitting space to seat more people.
A leather sofa is affordable. Beginning models are similarly priced to upholstered couches and go up from there, but they tend to last much longer. Depending on how you look at it, it could be argued that a leather sofa is actually less expensive over time than other options. You can find a basic leather love seat for under a thousand dollars. Of course, you can spend much more. A large sectional that includes love seat, sofa, and maybe a recliner or two can be thousands. From my experiences selling furniture I can say that the idea of a leather sofa is something many people are attached to, but tend to think of as too expensive. Most are pleasantly surprised when they learn the real benefit and value of leather.
Sometimes, instead of a traditional couch, a recliner couch is used for the primary piece of the sectional. It is interesting, a couch is normally designed to sit three people, but in our family, when we watch a movie together, one person will call the couch and then lay down on it. Sometimes a younger sibling will get \"permission\" to curl up at the other end or will lean on their older brother or sister. This usually works fairly well, but three people NEVER sit on the couch to watch TV. A recliner couch helps solve this problem. With a recliner on one end of the couch, one person can fully lay back and relax and leave plenty of room for others. Some recliner couches will have a couple of recliners. Some sectional sofas will even have a small pull-down arm rest between the two recliners that have cup holders in them to hold your drink.
If, on the other hand, you've got a pillow-back sofa, you should stick with either the same number or a single cushion for the seating. In other words, if the back as three pillow sections, use either one or three cushions on the seat base. Anything else will give the sofa an oddly unbalanced feeling.
