How to Join Modular Couches

Modular couches are a popular furniture choice for many homes. These versatile couches are comprised of separate sections that can be arranged and rearranged to suit different spaces and seating needs. However, a common concern people have about modular couches is that the sections may slide apart while in use. Fortunately, there are some simple solutions to help join the sections more securely. This article will provide useful tips on how to prevent modular couch pieces from separating and introduce a modular couch with non-slip legs.

Do Modular Couches Slide Apart?

Modular couch sections can indeed slide apart, especially if they do not have a sturdy method to join them together. Without a proper connection system, the weight and movement of people sitting on the couch can cause the sections to slowly spread further apart over time. Additionally, if the couch is lightweight and lacks anti-slip measures, this can further contribute to the sections sliding apart. Excessive sliding is not only annoying but can also become a safety hazard if gaps appear between cushioned pieces.

Well, How to Get a Modular Sofa to Stay Together

There are a variety of techniques to reinforce modular couch connections in order to keep sections from sliding:

  1. Select sectionals with built-in joining: Many modular sofa manufacturers now integrate useful features that securely join sections. Look for sectionals with sturdy metal clips, specialty brackets, straps with buckles, or snap buttons hidden underneath.
  2. Add supporting legs and feet: Supplementing a sectional sofa with additional legs or feet in key spots can prevent sagging or slippage where pieces join. Wide, non-slip feet also provide stability.
  3. Attach brackets beneath: For extra security, L-brackets, T-brackets, or angle braces can be discreetly added between couch sections, hidden underneath the scrim cloth cover.
  4. Bridge gaps with boards: Narrow plywood boards cut to lay flat across the backs, bottoms, or underneath modular couch seats can cover gaps and prevent movement. Boards may be screwed in place or held with non-slip pads.
  5. Secure to the floor: As a last reinforcement for stubborn sliding issues between sections against walls, use L-brackets anchored to both the furniture pieces and floor for a tight join.

Why Invest in a Modular Couch with Non-Slip Legs

Investing in a modular couch such as the Kenna 3-Piece Modular Sofa, which features non-slip legs, offers a practical and enduring solution to the common issue of sections sliding apart. Unlike traditional modular sofas, the Kenna's design foregoes metal connectors, relying instead on its sturdy, non-slip legs for stability.
