In the world of urban living, small living spaces have become a reality for many. But that doesn't mean you have to compromise on style and comfort.
With the right furniture, you can transform your cosy abode into a functional and inviting haven that still makes a big impact.
In this comprehensive guide, we’ll explore the best living room sets for small spaces, ensuring that you make the most of every square foot in your home.
Small living rooms can be tricky to decorate as you can easily overwhelm the space. Here are some tips to make the most out of your small living room:
Modular sofas are the undisputed champions when it comes to optimising space in a small living room.
Modular sofas consist of individual pieces that can be arranged and rearranged to create any seating configuration. This customisation allows you to easily adapt the sofa to the layout and size of your space.
For example, the Ethan Collection has several sofa units to choose from, such as a right arm chaise and a left arm 2-seater sofa.
Whether it’s arranged as an L-shape, U-shape, or as individual seating units, the versatile design makes this a perfect option for compact spaces. Pair the modular sofa with a coffee table with hidden storage, like the Andre Coffee Table, for an uncluttered look.
These pieces are designed to be proportionate to smaller rooms. They offer a comfortable seating solution without overwhelming the space with their size. As they don't take up as much floor space, this leaves more room for other furniture or creates a sense of openness.
Opt for 2-seater sofas with sleek designs and slender armrests and legs to create an illusion of spaciousness. Pair these compact sofas with a small side table to provide additional surface and storage space in the living room.
Without the luxury of space, you might want to skip having a coffee table. But, coffee tables are essential to help anchor the main seating area and provide more functionality in the living room.
So, instead of a bulky centre table, go for nesting coffee tables like the Vincent Coffee Table Set. When not in use, the smaller table can be neatly tucked under the larger one, occupying minimal floor space.
Alternatively, you can use ottomans to double up as a coffee table and seating space. When not being used as a table, they provide comfortable and versatile seating options, making them ideal for gatherings. Opt for an ottoman that matches your sofa so that it blends in seamlessly, making it look like a spacious sectional sofa.
It's common for small living spaces to have an open floor plan - which also means that the dining area often shares the same space as the living room.
To ensure that you don’t overcrowd the space, opt for drop-leaf tables (or extendable dining tables).
These dining tables can be expanded when needed and folded down when not in use. Pair them with benches for more seating space, or folding chairs that can be easily tucked away when not in use. This setup allows you to have an inviting dining area without sacrificing the precious living room space.
Small living spaces can be just as stylish and functional as larger ones with the right furniture choices. From modular sofas to compact coffee tables, there are numerous options available to maximise your small living room's potential. By carefully selecting living room furniture for small spaces, you can create a comfortable and inviting environment that you'll love to call home.
