Customizing Modular Sofas, Sectional Sofas & Couches

Lend a personalized touch to your living room or sitting area with modular sofas, sectional sofas & couches. These classic pieces of furniture are designed to let you get involved in the design. With modular and sectional furnishings, you select more than just the color or texture of your leather or upholstery. The entire layout is up to you when you shop a set of options that combine to create the arrangement that works best for your home. With this kind of control, you can customize modular sofas, sectional sofas & couches for large or compact areas, privacy or entertaining and whatever other furnishings you already own and love.

How Modular Sofa Customization Works

Create your own modular sofas, sectional sofas & couches by selecting different elements to fit together. The end result is similar to any other sofa you might choose, but modular or sectional sofas often wrap around to include perpendicular seating or extend on one side with a chaise.

  • Start with a seating element that looks a lot like a traditional couch or love seat. This may have an arm on one side if it's the end of the sectional on that side.
  • Add the side pieces by selecting a corner element if you want your seating to wrap into an L-shape. Beyond your corner element, you'll choose another seating piece with an arm.
  • If you're interested in a chaise lounge as one side of the modular sofa, pick whether you want it on the left or right. The other side of the couch is where the arm will be, while the chaise terminates beyond the depth of the main seating area.

Choosing Sectional Elements for Your Home

Figure out which modular sofas, sectional sofas & couches look best in your home by following these simple tips.

  • In a large room or a home with an open floor plan, place your sectional in an area that helps define the space, like by an entertainment center, fireplace or other gathering spot.
  • If you entertain frequently, you may want a modular couch that lets guests face each other during conversations and enjoy refreshments from a centrally-placed coffee table.
  • For those who love to stretch out while relaxing, a combination of chaises, ottomans and poufs makes room for everyone to put their feet up.

Since this is a substantial and eye-catching piece of furniture, you may want to design the rest of the room around your selection. Pick an area rug that shows off the silhouette or coffee and end tables that flow with everyone's favorite seat. Then, get ready to spend all your free time lounging here.
