Bassett Has the Best Small Sofas for Small Spaces

Creating a comfortable, cozy sitting nook in a small space doesn't have to be complicated. You can make any small room into your personal oasis of calm and relaxation with the right small sofa. Why should big rooms have all the fun? Make the very best use of the space that you have.

Our Small Sofa Collections

We carry a range of small sofas collections sure to match any style. Bassett's MODERN collection features clean lines, luxe accents, and a relaxed, comfortable feel. Or, discover something more natural and traditional like the Thames collection, with small sofas offering casual style with a moderately-scaled weltless track arm and including a waterfall skirt for a slipcovered look. Some of these collections are also featured in our small sleeper sofa selection.

Small Sofas Come in Different Styles & Sizes

Just because spatial constraints may limit you doesn't mean you're short on options when shopping for a great small sofa. Choose from many different types of upholstery, cushions, arm styles, leg height, seating height, and seating depth. There are plenty of ways to sprinkle your own unique style into your small sofa.

Average Small Sofa Dimensions

An apartment-sized sectional sofa could be as small as 80 inches wide by 35 inches deep. Loveseats and chaise lounges are naturally good options for smaller spaces, with standard styles measuring around 60 inches wide by 35 inches deep.

Your average small or "apartment-sized" sofa could be as small as 60" inches wide by 30" inches deep. However, because of various styles such as lounges, loveseats, and sectionals, small sofas can be as large as 80" inches wide and 45" inches deep. The depth of a small sofa changes depending on the seating style. For something with a more upright seating position, you'll typically see 19" inches to 21" inches and up to 27" inches for lounge-style seating.

Small Sofa vs. Regular-Size Sofa

There are many reasons why a small sofa can make more sense than a regular-size sofa. If your living room can't accommodate a full-size sofa, a small sofa is a perfect solution.

But nowadays, sofas aren't just limited to use in living rooms, and they're found everywhere from your home or business office to your bedroom, kids' playroom, and sunroom. A regular-size sofa may unnecessarily dominate smaller rooms, whereas a small sofa can fit in seamlessly.

When a loveseat is too small, and a regular-sized sofa is too much, your solution is a small sofa designed for small spaces. The small sofa is the Goldilocks of apartment seating options.

Customize Your Small Sofa to Your Liking

At Bassett Furniture, you can design your perfect small sofa to fit your style and preferences. From upholstery, cushions, and accent pillows to arm styles, seat depth, and trim, you get to decide precisely how your small sofa will look.

To get started with your very own small sofa design, schedule an in-person appointment with our design consultants at your nearest Bassett Furniture store. If you decide customizing is the way you should go, you need to consider several aspects. First, as mentioned above, seat depth is very important to ensure all guests are comfortable when sitting on your small space sofa. You can read more about the depth of a sofa in our blog to maximize the comfortability of your design. Second, you need to make sure you choose the right fabric or leather that will stand the test of time and messes. You can also read about what makes the most durable sofa in our blog.

Available Small Sofa Materials

The type of material you pick for your sofa matters as much as the color of the hardware. Not only does the material you choose have a significant impact on your small sofa's looks, but maybe more importantly, it changes how your piece feels. For example, a leather sofa with metal accents would have a colder and more modern feel when compared to something like fabric or wood, which can project a warmer feeling in your space.

Small Living Space Sofas FAQs

What are some different types of sofas for small spaces?

Bassett Furniture's selection of small space sofas includes leather and fabric options to fit anyone's taste. Most designs feature armrests, but some do not for those instances where every inch matters. We also understand that patios, decks, and sunrooms have space limitations as well, and that's why our inventory also includes small modern sofas for outdoor use.

What is the smallest size sofa?

The most petite small space sofa Bassett features in its selection is the BenchMade Custom Upholstery Armless Stand Alone Sofa. With only two seats and no armrests, its 66-inch wide solid wood frame can fit in the smallest living rooms and apartments.

How small can a sofa be?

As far as modern sofas go, the smallest a sofa can be is two seats, and even by that point, it is considered a loveseat. Any seating furniture with less than two seats would be viewed as a chair and a half or a recliner.

Which sofa is best for a small living room?

A compact or small space sofa is typically the best seating option for a small living room. Comfortable compact sofas feature two seats or three narrow seats at the most. They have a small frame to minimize their footprint on the limited available floor space. Many of our customers have also said compact sofas with removable cushions are convenient for cleaning and maintenance purposes.

What is the difference between a small sofa and a loveseat?

A standard loveseat typically comes in at 52 inches wide. That's definitely small enough to fit inside your apartment. But, will a loveseat make the most of the space you have available? A small sofa can give you a bit more wiggle room while still maintaining a smaller footprint than a regular-size sofa or sectional. The best sofas for small spaces offer between 72 and 78 inches of width and maintain a comfortable depth. Some even stretch out to 84 inches to help you maximize your seating space.
