How to Choose the Right Sofa for Your Apartment: 4 Things to Consider

The Scale of Your Room

So, what size sofa is best for a small apartment? The answer isn't always straightforward. While it may be tempting to go as big as you can fit, it's important to consider the scale of the room and the functionality of the sofa. A sofa that is too large can overwhelm a small space and make it feel cramped — especially if you also have a coffee table and other pieces of living room furniture like accent chairs and TV stands to include in the space. On the other hand, a sofa that is too small may not provide enough seating for you and your guests. Keely Smith suggests finding a sofa that fits the scale of the room while meeting your seating needs.

“One popular option for small apartments is a loveseat or apartment-sized sofa,” says Smith. “These smaller sofas typically measure around 60 inches in length, making them a perfect fit for a small living room.” Smith also recommends a modular sofa, “which allows you to customize the size and shape to fit your space.”

Style of the Sofa

When shopping for the perfect sofa for your space, consider how the sofa’s style works with the rest of the space. Keely Smith recommends “choosing a sofa that compliments the overall aesthetic of the room without overpowering it,” such as neutral colors and streamlined designs.

What You Need from the Sofa

It’s no secret that the sofa is a household staple. The piece works hard to accommodate our variety of needs– whether it's entertaining guests, spending time with our families, or hopping on a work call in a makeshift home office.

Thus, it’s important to take into account what you need from the sofa. “Thinking about the practicality of the sofa will help you narrow down your options and choose a piece that meets your needs,” says Keely Smith.

High Quality Construction

When you have a small space, you really want to make each piece of furniture count. When you don't have much space to work with, it’s important to prioritize quality, since the sofa is likely to be heavily used.

Jamie Gasparovic recommends “researching the frame, the cushion composition, and the springs” when searching for the right sofa.

How We Picked These Sofas

To create this guide, we consulted our team of reviewers– who test furniture and accessories first-hand all year long. We also chatted with Keely Smith, the lead interior designer at JD Elite Interiors and Jamie Gasparovic of Studio Gaspo about how they advise their clients to choose the perfect sofa for smaller spaces.
