Small Living Room Furniture to Enhance Your Cozy Space

You don't have to sacrifice style because you're short on interior space. Condos, apartments and homes with cozy living rooms simply need furnishings to match - including small sofas, loungers, coffee tables and console tables. With the right small living room furniture, you can transform your space into a spectacular place to relax, entertain and spend your time.

Small Sofas, Loungers and Accent Chairs

When you're choosing a sofa, lounger or accent chairs for a small space, plan to leave at least 18 inches of clearance between seating and tables, as well as at least 3.5 feet between your sofa and chairs. With these rules of thumb in mind, you can choose a seating arrangement that doesn't overwhelm your space.

Small sofas and loveseats are typically between 66 and 86 inches wide with enough room to comfortably seat two adults. If you're adding a lounger or accent chairs to your living room, you can choose a smaller sofa.

Pro Tip: If the rest of your space is a little tight, too, invest in a twin- or queen-sized sleeper sofa or a small sectional with an ottoman - that way, you have extra room for guests.

Coffee Tables Made for Small Spaces

The best coffee tables for small spaces have plenty of room for storage, either by way of surface space or on shelves. Some coffee tables are built for storage - simply lift the lid and there's ample room inside for books, magazines, remote controls and more. These pop-up coffee tables are the ideal solution in cozy spaces where you don't have room for side tables. Storage ottomans are great choices, too, because they pack a powerful style punch and provide surface space, as well.

Side Tables

In small spaces, you can forego the coffee table in favor of side tables. Look for a drink table - one with a smaller surface - or a side table designed with built-in power outlets and USB sockets so you can charge your phone, laptop and tablet without having to leave your relaxation station.

Console Tables

Console tables are designed to provide style and storage, which means they're the perfect choice when you're buying small living room furniture. Narrow console tables that include shelves, cubbies and drawers are ideal for placing up against an ordinarily unused wall or behind a sofa that you're using to define a space. Media consoles that are designed to hold your television, stereo and other living room electronics are a great solution when you can't wall-mount your TV or you have multiple entertainment devices you need to stash away.

Choosing the right small living room furniture can help your space appear larger. You don't have to sacrifice comfort, either - the right furnishings can create balance and harmony in your home.
