The lounge is the hero piece of your living room. It’s also one of the most used pieces of furniture in your entire home.

Whether you’re buying your first sofa, replacing an old one, or upgrading for a growing family, finding the perfect sofa can be a long and tiring process. But it doesn’t have to be!

Stylish and versatile, find out why a modular sofa could be the right choice for your home.

What is a modular lounge?

A modular lounge is made up of several pieces, or modules, to create a complete sofa. The pieces can be rearranged into different configurations to suit different spaces. Modular lounges can come with a chaise for putting your feet up, a recliner for kicking back, and several other features. They can be as simple or have as many bells and whistles as you like!

While the sections of a module lounge can be arranged to make whatever shape you like, U shape and L shape (or corner lounge) looks are the most popular.

 

You can personalise your modular lounge to suit you

Want to kick back and put your feet up after a long day? Or maybe you’d like to have your friends over to watch the big game? Whatever your needs and preferences, your modular lounge gives you the freedom to choose the configuration that suits you. Possible features of a modular lounge might be:

Our favourite thing about the modular lounge is the control to tailor it to be a perfect fit for your space and lifestyle. Because cookie-cutter furniture doesn’t always work for everyone.

TOP TIP: Consider how you plan to use your couch to help decide which features best suit you. Deliberate factors such as how often it will be used, who will be using it, and whether you like to sit or lie down.

 

They don’t go out of style

Modular lounges are designed to look good in any home. They have a stylish yet timeless look that complements both modern and traditional décor.

Sure, we love a good trend as much as the next guy, but modular lounges are a sure-thing if you don’t want to replace your sofa as the fads come and go. Whether you prefer classic leather or modern linen, these versatile lounges will stay in style, year after year.

TOP TIP: Have kids or indoor pets? While that white linen modular sofa may be beautiful, you might want to consider something that’s easier to clean, like leather or bonded leather.

 

They come in a range of sizes

While modular sofas are known for being expansive and roomy, they also come in compact sizes for smaller lounge rooms. Whether you’re spreading out with the whole family or it’s just you, your cat, and Netflix, modular lounges range from:

Filling a generous lounge room won’t be a problem, and neither will finding a comfy modular lounge for a smaller home. Your cat will thank you.

TOP TIP: Think your home is too small for a modular lounge? As it’s just one piece of seamless furniture, a modular lounge will actually take up less space than a set. Measure your space and take your measuring tape shopping. Don’t forget to measure your doorframe to ensure your new sofa will fit inside!

 

They work better in small spaces

Because modular lounges tend to take up less room than a set of lounges for the same amount of seating, they create a more open space in your living room. This makes them easier to position with your other furniture, like side tables, rugs, accent chairs, and other decorative items.

This gives you the freedom to style the space however you like without worrying about crowding around a bulky set of 2 or 3-seater couches.

TOP TIP: Place your modular sofa away from the wall for a more open feel. Use a large rug to anchor the space and create a more intimate atmosphere.

 

They can change as your needs change

Forget having to buy a brand new lounge when your family grows or you move home. The versatility of your modular lounge means you’ll never have to say goodbye should your circumstances change.

Simply add a modular chair piece or ottoman to extend it and accommodate another person, or rearrange the pieces into a different configuration to suit your new living room.

This ability to be easily altered also means you’ll always be able to change things up to create your favourite look, no matter how many times you move house.

TOP TIP: Speaking of moving home, modular sofas come in sections, making them a lot easier to carry and relocate to your new pad. Your back will thank you!

 

They’re multi-functional

Have you ever tried taking a nap on a regular 2 or 3-seater sofa? How about when a guest drops by and needs somewhere to crash? It’s not the most comfortable experience, especially for taller people!

With the option to add a chaise, recliner, sofa bed, or all 3, modular lounges are more than just a comfy spot for watching your favourite show. They’re also perfect for those afternoon naps and unexpected guests.

TOP TIP: Some modular lounges even come with storage, so you can keep your bed linen at the ready for those last-minute sleepovers.

 

They’re comfortable

Sure, modular lounges are beautiful, but when it comes to choosing the perfect sofa, you need to focus on one thing: comfort. Luckily, the modular lounge is by far one of the most comfortable couches you can add to your home!

Whether you prefer to sit up straight, lay back, or put your feet up, you’ll find yourself getting comfy in no time. Unlike regular sofas, modular lounges don’t limit your positioning, so you can enjoy binge-watching your favourite TV series without wriggling about trying to get comfortable!

TOP TIP: Stock up on your Cushions for an even comfier couch experience.

 

They create a more intimate atmosphere

Don’t have a wall where you wish you did? Open-plan living is great for a lot of things, but noise and privacy can become an issue. No one wants to listen to the sound of bacon sizzling when they’re trying to watch the season finale of their favourite series.

Modular lounges are great space dividers in open-plan living spaces. They create separation and a bit of privacy from other zones in the house, and help make things feel cosy and inviting when you’re chatting with guests on the couch.

TOP TIP: Add a couple of side tables within arm’s reach of your modular sofa to ensure guests can rest their coffee mug (or wine glass!). These are also handy when you feel like enjoying your meal in front of the TV.
