And what if we told you that shopping for a new modular sofa is actually a lot easier than you think? To get started, we'll show you how to shop for a new modular sofa and find the perfect one for your home.

What is a modular sofa?

A modular sofa is a type of couch that is composed of multiple sections or modules. These modules can be rearranged to create different shapes and configurations, making them very versatile and adaptable. Today, they're available in a wide range of styles, from sleek and modern to cozy and traditional, and can be customised with a variety of fabrics, cushions, and other accessories. So whether you need extra seating for a large gathering or want to create a cozy nook for two, a modular sofa is a great choice!

Consider the 'facing'

Before you buy a modular sofa, it's important to consider the 'facing'. This is the direction that the sofa is facing in relation to the room – for example, if you have a large window at one end of the room, you might want to choose a modular sofa with a left-facing chaise. This will allow you to take full advantage of the natural light and create a bright and airy space. 

Alternatively, if you have a fireplace in the room, you might want to choose a right-facing modular sofa, which will create a cosy and inviting atmosphere, perfect for relaxing in front of the fire on those chilly winter evenings.

Find the perfect size

Most people have a general idea of the size of sofa they need for their living space. But what many don't realise is that there are now more options than ever when it comes to finding the perfect size sofa. Modular sofas, for example, are available in a wide range of sizes and configurations. This means that you can easily find a modular sofa that will fit perfectly into your living space, regardless of its size or shape. In addition, modular sofas can be easily customised to meet your specific needs.

Think about the fabric

Modular sofas are a great way to add seating to your home without having to worry about the exact dimensions of your space. However, with so many different fabric options available, it can be difficult to know which one is right for you. Here are a few things to keep in mind when choosing a fabric for your modular sofa:

Durability: Modular sofas see a lot of use, so it's important to choose a fabric that can stand up to wear and tear. Look for fabrics that are easy to clean and resistant to stains.

Comfort: Modular sofas are meant for lounging, so you'll want to choose a fabric that is soft and comfortable. Plush fabrics like velvet or microfibre are ideal for this purpose.

Style: Modular sofas can be used in a variety of ways, so you'll want to choose a fabric that fits your personal style. If you prefer a more traditional look, opt for a classic fabric like leather or tweed. If you're looking for something more contemporary, go for something bolder, like patterned or brightly-coloured fabric.
