What Is an Apartment Sofa?

Finding furniture for small spaces, either an apartment, condo, or sitting room in your master bedroom can be a challenge. Especially since an apartment or condo-sized sofa may not be labeled as such.

When shopping for an apartment sofa, knowing a little bit about the dimensions of your room and the dimensions of the furniture will help you get the right-sized seating for your space.

It's All about the Size of Your Sofa

Measuring up to 84 inches in width, apartment sofas are generally smaller than a full-sized sofa. The width measurement for sofas includes the arms, so keep that in mind when sizing up your space.

Rowe Nantucket Queen Sofa Sleeper

For instance, this Rowe Nantucket Queen Sofa Sleeper creates a casual vibe in your family room. The softly rolled arms give it a clean, sophisticated look, and the accent pillows, available in several fabric options, add a special touch.

Apartment size couches often feature lower profiles with smaller arms to take up less visual as well as actual space.

Sleek and chic, this apartment sofa is also a power recliner, so you get comfort and style in one compact package.

What’s Love(seats) Got to Do with It?

Ranging from 45-72 inches wide, loveseats are another option for small spaces. At 76 inches, this Natuzzi Editions B806 Contemporary 2-Seat Love Seat is a fashionable and comfortable addition to any small space, whether it be a living room, man cave, den, or reading nook. It gives you everything you need to relax in style, including plush pillow arms, a tufted back, and an elastic webbing system that creates a resilient lounging experience. Available in multiple color options, this piece goes with any dècor to create a warm, inviting atmosphere.

Some Things to Think About

Since the family room tends to be the most used space in a home, your sofa will be one of the most used pieces of furniture. It is crucial to the activity and vibe of the room. Be sure your family room furniture placement leaves plenty of room to move around the other pieces of furniture in the space.

For instance, leaving 12-18 inches between a sofa and coffee table is ideal. You want to be able to move around it comfortably but also easily reach any items you place on it. In addition, seating arrangements should keep your guests close enough to speak to each other without shouting.

This may seem like a lot to think about, but a little planning upfront will make the process of finding a new smaller-sized sofa easier and more enjoyable. When you shop armed with this knowledge, you know you will get the perfect piece for your space.
