The Best Sofas for Small Spaces

There’s nothing more adult than buying a couch of your very own, in my opinion. However, most “starter” homes and apartments won’t fit the giant, plush sectional of your dreams just yet. If you still want a place to lounge and entertain, you have to find a sofa that works for the space. But don’t let a small living room get you down! Here are some amazing options for kicking back in a small spaces.


If you’re going for a classic, toned-down look, we recommended a simple, squishy sofa or loveseat in neutral colors.
