For most of us, the luxury of a large living room just isn’t a reality. This can be a little tricky when it comes to buying a sofa as this is often one of the biggest pieces we’ll buy for our homes. When given the challenge of a smaller living room, don’t fret. There are now plenty of smaller sofas on the market to deliver maximum comfort in the smallest of spaces. A compact, corner, or snuggler sofa can be just the ticket, and here, we’ve compiled our best space-saving sofas to suit all budgets.
You can’t beat a compact corner sofa to save on space. A corner sofa is always a practical choice when you want to maximise your comfortable sitting space, but take up minimal floor space. Ideal for both contemporary and traditional homes, they can be pushed back against the wall to fill this area of the room. This Arlo & Jacob corner sofa pictured below is ideal for saving space in your living room, and what’s more, they have plenty more compact sofas to choose from.
The slim proportions of the Oslo sofa from Dwell is perfect for anyone looking to save space and introduce some modern style. By lifting the sofa off the floor, it gives the illusion of more space and allows light to pass underneath, plus the metal legs give a lighter, more modern feel compared to traditional wooden legs. The slim chaise adds comfort and length, without taking up too much room – plus, at under £500, it’s a bit of a steal.
This is a bit of a genius design if ever we saw one. Designed by Tom Dixon in partnership with Ikea, the Delaktig is a multiconfigurational sofa and sofa bed designed to maximise space while offering various uses. Available in a whole variety of configurations, you can add side tables, back cushions, arms, or simply remove all modular pieces to convert it into a bed. It’s a fantastic, affordable option for studios, one-bed apartments and student flats.
If you’re still a bit of traditionalist at heart and modern design doesn’t tickle your fancy, then worry not – there are still plenty of traditional style sofas that can work in your small space. If traditional is your taste, why not consider a snuggler sofa or loveseat? They have all the same traditional style elements found in classic grand-sized sofas but on a minute scale. This cute option from Rose & Grey has all the traditional features, like a buttoned back and castor legs, delivered on a teeny tiny scale.
