To keep your living space looking open and light, choose a sofa on legs or on a metal frame, which won't look bulky and overtake your already small space.
Love seats are a great fit for small spaces. Also, be sure to look out for sofas with slim arms and avoid choosing arched arms or overly padded styles, that are a tough squeeze for tight spots.
Bold colours and prints aren't a no-no, just avoid anything too dark that will take over the room. Stores like Loaf and Sofa.com allow you to pick fabrics and finishes, so you can adapt your sofa to suit your taste and space even more.
If you do prefer a more neutral scheme, then why not make a style statement with a chic curved retro frame instead? And you can always add extra splashes of colour and comfort with cosy cushions.
And lastly don't forget: remember to measure up your space and figure out how you'll go about getting your sofa into place before it's delivered.
Here's our pick of the 10 chicest sofas for small spaces. Happy shopping...
