The Best Small Space Sofa

Picture 2 of 8

What type of couch is best for a small room?

Sofas are generally made in smaller sizes for smaller rooms. When you are shopping, you want to ask for a “condo” size as opposed to a love seat or a full size. The proportions feel more like a sofa on a condo size. I would suggest that you look for something that has a leg so that you can see as much floor as possible. Make sure there is no roll to the arm or the back of the sofa. The arm and back take up space in the room that you don’t have to spare and those features don’t have a function. Also select a sofa that isnt more than 36 inches deep so that you don't consume space unnecessarily.
