If you do get a sectional, make sure it's a decent size. The sectional we have looks big... but it's unrealistic when we have people over. Everyone is squished on it. And also make sure it has like.... extra legs? between the legs. I don't know how to explain it LOL. But our support beams snapped because there was no actual support from the couch to the floor in the middle of the sectional.
You see the black legs right there? The only place those are located are on each end, and then at the corner. But the part of the couch between the corner and the end have no support.. so if a kid is gonna jump or flop on the couch, it may snap (ours did).
