#BuyersGuide: Tips For Buying A Sectional

Sectional buying can be a daunting task if you are new to the game. What size do I need? What If I move ? Do I need to have a huge room for it to fit? We hope this post helps clarify some questions you may have and gives you the nudge you need to make that big decision.

Whether you are  custom ordering from a store in person or ordering online, you will come across terminology that may be confusing. Sectional components mostly consist of Right arm facing (RAF), Left arm facing (LAF), corner pieces, chaises or armless pieces. Right or left arm facing means that when you are looking at the sectional, the arm is on the right or left. An armless piece is useful to connect your LAF or RAF end pieces or add length to your piece and chaise lounges add an L-shaped length without the extra cushions.

Contrary to popular belief. you do not need a huge space for a sectional to work. Actually, a sectional may be the solution to that small awkward space you can’t seem to figure out. A large piece of furniture in a small space can actually anchor the space and help it seem bigger! Eliminating multiple pieces of furniture and using a sectional to accommodate all of your seating needs will make for a cozier, softer space. Here are a couple of examples:

The sectional above features a left arm facing love seat and right arm facing chaise. A sofa with a chaise is a great option for a small space.

This sectional is traditional L-shaped with a RAF love seat and LAF sofa with return.

Before you start shopping, measure your space and draw out a floor plan! You need to know exactly how much room you have to work with, especially because the majority of sectional purchases are special orders and non-returnable. You want to take note of your high traffic areas, point of entrance and all doors and openings. Sectionals are great, but if you are blocking your entrances and flow of traffic, it may not be the best option for your space.

Think you will be moving in a few years? Maybe you should consider a modular sectional. These versatile pieces allow you to add and subtract any number of pieces to fit your space perfectly. See an example of a modular sectional below:

This 8 piece sectional can be modified to be smaller or in a different configuration very easily. See it with all of its pieces here:

Try not to become overwhelmed, find your measurements, and head to Turner’s so a designer can help you find the perfect sectional. We are confident that a sectional can quickly add functionality, comfort, and style that few other furnishings can provide.

August Anniversary Winners

Fortson Turner, $1000 gift certificate winner Laurel Griffith, $5000 gift certificate winner D'Andrea Bridges & Austin Turner

Now in the sixth month of our 100 Year Anniversary campaign, we’ve already given away a total of $60,000 in free furniture and donated $60,000 to local charities!

The August drawing yielded two big winners from Albany. D’Andrea Bridges received $5,000 in free furniture. She along with her fiance and son just moved into a new home and were in need of a new mattress and a few other items. She told us she was very grateful her name was drawn for the $5,000 grand prize. The $1,000 gift certificate winner was Laurel Griffith, who was also excited her name was drawn.

The matching charity donation of 5,000 was presented to Albany Advocacy Resource Center, one of the largest private provider agencies in Georgia that offers quality care and services for people of all ages with physical and/or mental disabilities. They are using the donation to fund their new Kids’ Corner Child Development Center. Receiving the $1,000 donation was Mission Change, a local grass-roots volunteer organization that raises awareness and takes action concerning issues affecting our region from homelessness and food insecurity to under-served inner-city youth and more. They are putting the $1,000 toward The Village, an after school program designed to guide under-served youth into becoming strong stewards of their community.

There was also a $500 winner from Tallahassee and a $500 winner from Thomasville. Congratulations to all of our August winners and charities. See below for a complete listing. To learn more about the $100,000 giveaway, click here.
