Building out your own space in a new home is one of the most satisfyingly creative things in life. From working out the ideal placements for furniture to bringing together a wealth of art and design touches that really make the atmosphere feel personal, there are so many chances for us to bring out the absolute best in an area if we have the right tools to do so.
For many new homeowners and renters, modular and sectional sofas have become the go-to choice for living room bliss. With that said, while the topic gets thrown around a lot, there are still a lot of buyers out there that come to us with questions about what a modular or sectional sofa is, and that’s what we here at Hybreeze Furniture are here to answer today.
In this piece, we will go through the basics of what a modular/sectional sofa is, and why they’ve become such a hit with renters and buyers. So, let’s get into it!
What is a Sectional Sofa?
As the name suggests, a sectional sofa is a sofa that comes in an array of different large upholstered sections. These sections are generally quite a bit bigger than those found on a modular sofa, and in turn, they are fantastic for those with lots of space to rest and relax. Most sectional sofas that you’ll find on the market break down into three different shapes:
- L-Sectional Sofas
- Chaise Sectional Sofas
- Bumper Chaise Sectional Sofas
Each is different in its shape and each will be suited to a different type of room. So, when you start hunting down a beautiful new sofa of your own, it’s important to know what you’ll be looking for.
What is a Modular Sofa?
Similar to a sectional sofa, the modular sofa is also broken down into several smaller pieces. The main difference between the two, however, is the size of those smaller pieces, and the level of customisation available. Modular sofas don’t tend to have the large connecting pieces that must be placed in a specific order, and can instead be adjusted and customised more easily than the sectional, making them a favourite when it comes to small homes and apartments.
Why Have Sectional & Modular Sofas Become So Popular?
As we mentioned earlier, if you walk into most modern homes and apartments in 2023, there’s a very good chance that you’ll be faced with either a modular or sectional sofa. There is a number of reasons for this, but the main ones tend to break down to a few major points in their favour:
Especially with modular sofas, the ability to tweak and adjust these sofas to match a space makes them perfect for renters who may be moving the couch from place to place. It’s also great for those that enjoy spicing up their interior decor every once in a while and rearranging their rooms.
Ease of Handling
Unlike larger solid-body couches that come in one large piece, a modular or sectional sofa is far easier to move thanks to its ability to break up into smaller pieces. For those that have ever tried to move a large couch upstairs into an apartment, they’ll know just how amazing the ability to break up a sofa into smaller, more manageable pieces can be.
Especially when you get a really high-quality sofa, like the ones found through Hybreeze Furniture, modular and sectional sofas are just extremely comfortable, and each is fantastic in its own way. Because of the large number of different forms modular and sectional sofas can take, you can find one that is perfectly suited to your needs and preferences; what could be better?
Ease of Replacement
In cases where a piece of the couch is damaged beyond repair, it will be significantly cheaper and easier to find a part that matches the couch than it would be to buy a brand-new couch. This is especially true if you’ve bought directly from a manufacturer, who should be able to help you find the perfect fit to replace it.
All of this doesn’t even mention the fact that modular and sectional sofas are just truly beautiful pieces of furniture. A well-designed sectional can bring such a depth of texture and comfort to a room, and it makes them a fantastic choice for those that want modern interiors without giving up the softness and comfort of a fantastic sofa.
