Top tips for adding a sectional to your office space

More and more professionals are moving their business operations into their homes. This has been a growing trend over the last decade, but the pandemic pushed it to new heights. Now that people are deciding to stay home indefinitely, many are remodeling rooms or building an add-on for a real home office.

If you want to be able to meet clients in your home office, you should make sure that it is either accessible from the outside or is near the front of the home. You should also make sure that the furnishings and decor you choose are somewhat professional in nature.

However, what was once considered unprofessional, like tattoos and multi-colored hair, are no longer taboo. In the same way, what decor and furnishings should be in a professional setting is also changing. Creating a more intimate atmosphere in a home office, while still using professional materials and styles, is highly favored.

A sectional is a perfect solution for these spaces. Here are a few tips for adding a comfortable sectional to your home office.

Choose a smaller design

A sectional gives you a nice spot for conversing with clients in a more personal way. But you don’t want to let it take up the entire room or crowd the other furniture either. Going with a traditional L-shaped design, or one with a chaise on one end will be more suitable for a smaller room or home office. Check the measurements carefully, and don’t forget to consider the depth measurement, as well as leaving space for maneuvering around the bulky furniture.

Consider a modular sofa

A modular sofa is adaptable to your needs. Many modular sectionals have several cube seat shapes so that you can design the sofa specifically for your office space. It can also cut down on how much furniture you need in the office because you can move seats in front of the desk if needed.

Choose a professional sectional design

The goal of adding a sectional for your home office is to create a cozy atmosphere for your clients but choose professionalism over comfort. Overstuffed cotton or microfiber sectional doesn’t fit the executive theme, but leather or faux leather sectional can be just as comfortable.

Place against a wall or in a corner

In a living room, you want to place the sectional in the middle of the room, leaving the walls open to give the room a larger appearance in spite of the bulky sofa. But a home office is different. Placing the sectional against a wall or in a corner opens up the majority of the floor space for other important furniture like an executive or L-shaped desk, executive desk chair, slim armchairs at the desk for clients, and/or small dining with round table and chairs for reviewing paperwork or to use as an added workspace.
