Yours truly is remembering a hallway-like common area that she and two roommates shared in New York City, in which an armchair was so crushed up next to a couch that they overlapped at the arms, the corner between them occupied by a side table that could fit a lamp and nothing else (and that was so crammed into the space you couldn't even see the legs of it, let alone clean it). But a sectional—the right size sectional—could have added one more seat to that corner, relaxing the cramped nature of the room we'd so poorly devised.
It's not humanly possible to get cozy on a love seat and you know it. So what's a tiny living room to do? Try the exact opposite, actually. The best sofas for small rooms turn out to be the biggest: sectionals! We realize this is a counterintuitive suggestion—Won't my itsy-bitsy room look totally cramped with a massive sectional in it?—but the best ideas so often are. "Sometimes using several small pieces can make a room feel cluttered," says Ashley Darryl, speaking about the sofa-chair-table cluster that's almost instinctive in a small living room.
So we completely redid the fireplace and created a bookcase nook for the tv (you can read all about that project here), which realigned the room much more logically. But even with the addition of a wingback chair, we could still only seat 5 people really comfortably. Since we are now a family of 6, that proves to be rather disappointing.
6. Match the color of your U shaped sectional couch with the color of the room where you are going to place it. If the walls of your room is colorful; choose soft color U shaped couch and combine it with dark couch pillows. If the walls are in white; you are able to pick dark U shaped couch with additional couch pillows in bright colors.
