Sofas not too close to the ground
Sofas closer to the ground often create an illusion of a busy and dense space, which can become claustrophobic.
Sofas with high legs gives the illusion of the sofa appearing light, elegant and proportionate to the space. In addition, depending on the type of sofa, this also give you the chance to use that as further storage.
Lounge chairs are a great addition to a living space, as it adds further character to the room, and you have additional sitting space.
You can use mirrors
Mirrors are one of the best ways of giving the illusion of making a small space much bigger.
However, most importantly the shape of your mirrors helps emphasize the space.
One of the top trends right now are tall mirrors, for example our very own Bell mirror from Camerich.
Slim & Modular Sofas
When you’re looking for a sofa for a small space, sofas with slim narrow armrests and backrests are perfect. The slim armrest and backrest help to utilize as much seating space.
Alternatively, modular sofas are also a great choice. This is because, modular pieces are available in separated pieces and often in different lengths, which gives you vast choice of configuration.
Nevertheless, the seat depth is also a huge factor on your sofa choice. Narrow sofas are imperative to small spaces. Sometimes, we overestimate how big the sofa will be, and make the mistake of going for deeps sofas, which ends up taking up too much of the room.
This why you want to focus around seat depts under 100cm (this length from the back to the front of the sofa).
The Elan sofa is a great addition to any small space as the range is modular, it also has a narrow depth of 100cm so is ideal for a small space. In addition to this, the Elan sofa also has storage options as part of some of the modules making it the perfect option.
