Sectional may not fit!? Help!
katygirl
January 10, 2013
I just remodeled this bonus room above my garage. I added a door at the top/landing of the stairs, to keep the noise from traveling down to my main level. Good idea, I THOUGHT!? I didn't consider the door opening/space at the time. Now I want a fairly good sized sectional to go under these windows, that would consist of a chaise on the left, and two other parts under the window and wrapping around on the right, to form a "U" shape. Unfortunately, even if I take the door off at the top of the stairs, I only have 31.5 inches. Wouldn't be so bad if the door was closer to the inside of the room to I could "twist" the sections in, but it is a straight wall at the landing and not possible. (Hope this pics help!?) Any suggestions???

You would be best off with a sectional that:
(a) has a low back (removable cushions can be higher)
(b) has removable legs
(c) comes in short sections that clip together

These are the guidelines I always use when I specify furniture for basements which often have a staircase with a turn at the bottom and/or the top.

Can you temporarily take out the windows and hoist the furniture up and through them? That is how the Dutch solve this problem.

Gosh! There's no need for such drastic action! I brought a sectional into my client's home recently, and we only had 27" clearance! I would be happy to supply a suitable sectional that would easily come up those stairs!

Many sofa's these days come with the back completely removable so just make sure you ask how it is assembled when you go looking!

We had very similar situation so sectional ended up going to the livingroom instead of family room.It was 2 piece sectional but once we brought longer piece it in the stairs landing there was not enough height to rotate it. So take that into account as well.

That's why you need a sectional made in narrower sections.
