The Best Small Sofas for Small Rooms


There’s no denying that compact living is on the up. According to a survey taken in 2018, the average lounge size in new build homes is 32% smaller than the equivalent homes built in the 1970s. Smaller living space doesn’t mean, however, that we have to compromise on style or quality. It just means that the search for our ideal furniture comes with a more specific size requirement.

If you’re looking for the best small sofas for small rooms, here are some ideas which will hopefully help.

Comfortable Small Sofas

When it comes to smaller sofas, a 2 seater sofa immediately stands out as the perfect space saving furniture. Still offering the comfort of a larger sofa, there is a whole range of designs available for you to take advantage of, from 2 seater leather sofas to small sofa beds and small corner sofas.

Even if your room is small, an L-shaped sofa can fit neatly into the corner, utilising the available space and giving you more seating options and the chance to properly spread out and relax!

And if you’ve got guests coming to stay but no extra bedrooms for them, a 2 seater sofa bed gives you the best of both worlds, and doesn’t compromise on comfort or style.

Small Sofa Style

From a design perspective, there are a number of elements to consider when looking at sofas for small spaces. Choosing a sofa with a clean-lined silhouette, no back cushions or an armless style can help to make the length and depth of your sofa slimmer, and make your room feel larger.

It’s also worth considering a mid-century modern sofa. With a style that is all about clean lines and a less-is-more approach, the design of these sofas focuses on simplicity, practicality and minimalism, and with a style that is unlikely to go out of fashion, they’re a real contender for a smaller room and still give you that wow factor.

A small love seat is also a great choice when space is limited. Larger than a chair but smaller than a two seater sofa, it’s a real snuggle sofa and looks great in the corner of a room, potentially leaving space or another small sofa or chair.

Offering a timeless aesthetic to any room, a two seater leather sofa is a worthy addition to your living space. While large leather sofas are available, there is a wealth of choice when it comes to small compact sofas. A classic design, which tends to go with any colour palette, a leather sofa will stand the test of time.

Alternatively, and well worth factoring into your decision making, are small velvet sofas. Beautiful, opulent and adding a real depth of colour to your living space, these statement sofas come in all shapes and sizes, with a plethora of shades to choose from.

Small Sofa on a Budget

The best thing about a small sofa, of course, is that it tends to have a smaller price tag attached to it. Without needing to compromise on quality or style, prices for smaller sofas start from just over £500, with the Stratton Sofa Bed starting from £510.25.
