Does your new media room seem to be lacking something essential? If you can’t quite put your finger on what your rec room is missing, consider the furnishings you have chosen first. Many people buy new furniture for their living room and move that older furniture to the media or entertainment room. It makes sense when you consider that any furniture you place in that room is likely to become stained with spills.
But the furniture you used in your living room might not be right for your family room. Your seating should allow for comfortable conversation, easy viewing of the big-screen television, and access to gaming consoles, controllers, and accessories. Instead of adding a ton of storage and extra chairs to clutter up the space, consider a sectional to meet all of these needs with one versatile piece of furniture.
When you consider that the sectional you would buy today will last around 15 years, getting a new piece of furniture that is perfect for your media center does not seem like an extravagant expense. In addition, thanks to online furniture stores, you can find sectional couches for sale that meet all of the following criteria at bargain prices. Check on 1SB for the latest styles.
The age of the modular sofa
Even sofas of traditional size with three to four seats are now being designed as modular sofas. The biggest benefit to modular sofas is that each seat, or cube, can be moved individually to make it easier to move from room to room or home to home. In a society in which the average family moves every 10 years, it makes sense to want a sofa that can be moved easily rather than discarded.
Modular sofas have also given us another blast from the past – conversation pits. Except unlike the conversation pits of the 70s, these modular sectional sofas can also be rearranged at a whim to meet whatever other needs you have, such as theater-style seating or changing from an O shape to a U shape during the entertainment.
There is no need to clutter your rec room with drawers, crates, and other loose storage, even if you have a lot of board games, card games, or multiple gaming consoles. Today’s sectionals almost always offer storage hidden beneath the cushion, much like storage ottomans that have already been popular for several years.
Versatile tech features
If you’re furnishing a den with digital entertainment, you are probably fairly tech-savvy. When the average person uses at least 2 smart devices per day, it is not surprising that everyone wants new ways to charge their smartphones. Now that we have the technology to charge phones by placing them on a charging surface, sectionals that can charge smart devices are becoming more common.
You may also want to look for additional features such as built-in LED reading lights that could also be used to light crafts such as crochet or quilting.
