Selecting Your Perfect Game Day Sectional

Fall is finally here and with it, football season. If you haven’t already, it’s time to make sure your entertainment room is ready for game day with furniture that offers enough seating and the right features to suit everyone’s comfort!

Whether you’re by yourself, with your family, or the whole gang is coming over for the game, a sectional is perfect for any occasion!

Here are some of the reasons why sectionals are an excellent asset to have during football season, followed by some tips to help you find your perfect game day sectional!

Creating a Game Day Mood

Sectionals: The Ideal Choice for Game Day!

A sectional is a less formal form of living room furniture. It immediately cultivates a laid-back vibe, which is exactly the mood you want to create on game day!

A sectional also creates a centralized location for everyone to gather. This intensifies the sense of camaraderie that football fans already have on game day. You’ll feel more connected with those around you because you’ll share not only a common goal, but a common space!

Perfect for Lounging

Sectionals: The Ideal Choice for Game Day!

If you like to lay out and lounge comfortably, a sectional is your best friend! You’ll have lots of room to stretch out and get comfortable. You can also migrate to different areas of the sofa to find the best view!

Again, a sectional creates a more casual feel, so you’ll definitely feel comfortable sprawling out and relaxing. Sectionals come in all shapes and sizes, so you can find the perfect option for your space. You can get your sectional in whatever size and configuration best suits your lounging needs!

For example, If you like to put your feet out while you watch the game, a sectional with a chaise or matching ottoman may be a good choice. If you like to tuck your feet underneath you, a sectional with a cuddler may be the option for you! There are also reclining options available.

Accommodating Party Guests

When you decide to have a game day party, a sectional can provide all of the space you’ll need to accommodate your friends and family!

It can often be frustrating trying to make sure that you’ll have enough room for everyone, but a sectional allows you to have plenty of space without having to rearrange your entire living room. Since more people can fit in one area of the room, it opens up the space and you will also be able to accommodate more guests if need be!

Finding Your Perfect Game Day Sectional – Tips for Success!

If you’re ready to start your search for the perfect sectional this season, here are some tips to help you get started!

Tip #1: Measure your space

We can’t emphasize this enough! As earlier discussed, one of the main benefits of owning a sectional is the extra seating – but it’s a big piece of furniture! Your goal should be to select one that fits within the dimensions of the room and offers the additional seating you’re looking for without overcrowding your space.

Tip #2: Get the right shape for your space

Getting the correct configuration is also important: similar to tetris, it’s important that you find the right shape to fit within the room so that you are getting the best use out of the available space.

Tip #3: Choose the right material for both form and function

Some sectional covers will stain and wear much easier than others. If you plan on entertaining often, a sectional covered with a more durable material is recommended. Leather is an excellent choice for durability, OR you may want to consider a stain-resistant fabric! That way you can rest easy knowing your new sectional is easily cleanable if any drinks or beer dip accidentally gets spilled.

Tip #4: Think about what extra features you would like

Sectionals continue to become more innovative in what they offer for comfort and convenience. Many now offer cubby spaces for storage (so you can stow away blankets, pillows, snacks, etc), cup holders for your game day beverages, and even places to charge your phone! Features like these are awesome to have during football season and year round. We recommend you think about what importance level these features have for you, and what specifically would make your lounging experience superior!

Tip #5: Think about whether you want power recline or a stationary sectional

Power reclining options allow you to reach your perfect comfort position with the push of a button, BUT when you’re laid all the way back, it makes it harder to jump up quickly (whether you need to pay the pizza delivery guy or jump up and cheer when your team scores a touchdown.) Reclining seats and cuddlers / chaises are both viable options, it just comes downs to what your comfort preferences are and what type of experience you’re looking for. We recommend trying out both options before you buy to help you decide which is the best fit for you!
