If you own a modular sectional sofa or L-Shaped sofa and you are wondering how to install covers for it, the best way to go about this task is to split the couch into different parts and use multiple one-piece and two-piece covers to build out your sectional.
Since modular sofas like the L-Shaped variety are made of more than one piece, it's best to consider each removable section as it's own sofa, for the sake of applying sofa covers to it.
Choose covers based on each sectional's size and apply them separately before reattaching at the end. Otherwise, the instructions are exactly the same as previously mentioned above.
