Perfectly formed: Our guide to small sofas for small rooms 

Is your living room a little on the small side? If so, it means you’ve got to choose wisely if you want your new sofa to perfectly slot into place.

We know it’s a little frustrating that you can’t choose your next sofa purely based on what it looks like. But you’ll be pleased to hear there are plenty of small-scale sofa choices available to you.


Whether you need a narrow sofa or shallow sofa, we’ve shared some of the best options for you below, so you can spend less time searching around, and more time creating your favourites list!


What is the smallest size sofa?

The smallest size sofa is a two seater sofa. If you want anything smaller than that, then you’re in chair territory. Now two seater sofas aren’t a standard size, their dimensions do vary, depending on the design. Generally speaking, two seater sofas tend to have two large seating cushions, which a maximum of two people can sit on.


Is a corner sofa good for a small room?

Yes, providing the corner sofa doesn’t fill up your entire room, leaving space for nothing else. The beauty of a corner, or L-shaped sofa, is that they tuck right into a corner, making use of space that may not necessarily have been used. Keep an eye out for chaise sofas, they’re the smallest corner sofa choice.


Once you’ve decided on the design, make sure you take the time to thoroughly measure-up. When looking at our sofas online, you’ll find we include a full breakdown of all the dimensions, including height (A), width (B), depth (C), seat height (D), seat depth (E) and arm height (F). 


Don’t just measure your sofa space either, measure the width and height of your doors and hallway; just to be sure the sofa you choose will actually fit in your home! 


Which sofa is best for a small living room?

Having a small room to work with doesn’t mean you have a small amount of sofa choices to select from, not if you’re exploring our extensive sofa ranges.
