When looking at new sofas for your lounge room, don't overlook the option of a modular sofa. These sofa designs provide more versatility compared to a standard model.

1. Customisable Configurations

The main attraction of a modular sofa is that it can be configured to fit your space needs. Keep in mind that there are two types of modular sofa. Fixed modulars are designed to be set up in a certain configuration, often with a lounger on one side to create an L shape. Although you can break the sofa up into individual pieces, fixed sofas only fit together in one configuration. Customisable sofas have armrests that slide out and similar features that allow you to completely change the configuration to fit your needs and design preferences.

2. Fit Smaller Spaces

It can be difficult to fit a standard size sofa into a small room or into a room with wasted space in the corners. Modular sofas come in a variety of sizes, so you can find a design that tucks neatly into a corner nook or that will wrap around a small space to maximise its use. Just make sure to shop for your sofa with a measuring tape in hand. Take down the measurements of the room before shopping, then measure each sofa you look at. Take into account armrest and backrest overhang so you can be sure that it will fit your space.

3. Increased Seating Capacity

If you need extra seating in your lounge room but don't want or have the room for multiple sofas, then a modular sofa is the better solution. Since these sofas are designed to wrap around a space, you end up with both forward-facing and side seating. An L-shaped modular nearly doubles the seating capacity over a standard model, while a U-shaped sofa nearly triples the number of seats. Plus, the configuration is cosy and encourages conversation and interaction.

4. Adaptable to New Rooms

For those that have new homes in the future, a modular sofa provides another benefit — it will likely be able to fit into the layout of your next home. Having the ability to configure the sofa to fit the space combined with the option of removing parts of the sofa that no longer fit with your design means that a modular sofa can move and grow with your family.

If you are shopping for a new sofa, look into an Aussie made modular sofa. You will enjoy all the benefits listed above, while also supporting Australian business and lowering the environmental footprint of shipping a larger item to your home.
