Sofas For Small Living Rooms

Just because you're short on square-footage, doesn't mean you can't create your dream living space. Whether you want to make a snug or study more cosy, or your main living room is a hard shape to work with, we've got petite sofas that will make the perfect fit.


Here are our tips for finding the perfect style for your room...

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 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.
