Do you need a new couch, but you're grappling with whether to get a two or three-seater and whether to add an armchair? The problem is that you may discover you've made the wrong choice once you're living with your new sofa. Either the three-seater lounge is too big and takes up too much space, or the two-seater doesn't provide enough seating, and you may have to purchase another couch or chair. You can escape these dilemmas, though, by choosing a modular lounge. Here's how they can help in numerous situations.
Fix Wrong Decisions
A modular sofa comprises various pieces that you can set together however you wish. The couch you select may have armless chairs, corner chairs, and a matching ottoman. Some sofas include a chaise lounge that covers an area of two seats and lets you recline with outstretched legs. You can also purchase end seats with an armrest on the left or right side.
What this means for you is that you can configure the lounge however you wish. You can create a three-seater L-shape. Alternatively, you could set up a couple of two-seater couches facing each other. If you find the sofa is too big, you can move a chaise lounge to your bedroom or a single modular seat to a window nook in the kitchen. You won't be stuck making the wrong decision, as you can adapt the lounge to fit your home.
Not only is this flexibility helpful now, but also in the future. Say you want to totally reorganise the furniture or move the lounge to a different spot in an open living area. A modular sofa will offer endless options for arranging and breaking it up.
Modular sofas let you accommodate a room's unique proportions. If you have a big, expansive space, a substantial modular lounge can work as an anchor and create a focal point in the centre. In a small or long room, you can break the sofa into sections and nudge them into corners or against the wall, so the couch doesn't monopolise the space.
Plus, you can decorate more than one room, as it may be cheaper to buy one modular lounge and use pieces for various rooms rather than buy stand-alone chairs and sofas.
Move Around For the Occasion
A modular lounge also lets you rearrange the pieces differently depending on the occasion. Say you're throwing a party. You could split up a three-seater and an ottoman to create a couple of two-seaters, allowing people to sit and chat in separate groups. To do this, join the ottoman with a corner seat. Then connect an armless and an end seat.
If you're having a film night, you can push all the sofa pieces together to form a long row so everyone can easily watch the movie. Remember, you can use other furniture items in the house to create a harmonious look. For example, place a small table or a large potted plant beside a single corner seat so it looks complete.
