Sectional sofas are the type of seats you either love or hate. If you have a big family, you may want to love them.

Let’s demystify sectional sofas and give you 5 reasons they might be perfect for your living space.
5. Different Configurations
Sectional sofas can best be categorized into two: Right arm Facing (RAF) or Left arm Facing (LAF). Right arm Facing simply means that the sofa’s arm is on the right. An LAF sectional sofa has the arm side on the left. Out of these two categories, you can find a wide variety of sofas to suit your needs. Some sectional sofas come with a chaise that can accommodate 2 people, some 3. Some come with a love seat, some don’t.
