Small Sofa Buying Guide
Why buy a small sofa?
Equally, if you are creating a spot for seating in a basement, or perhaps a loft conversion, again it makes sense to be as economical with space as you possibly can with a small sofa. At the same time, these items of furniture are ideal for making a lovely spot where you can unwind with a drink and a book in front of a bay window.
Additionally, a smaller sofa can be very useful if you are the sort of household that likes to entertain a lot, or has a large extended family, with frequent visitors. An occasional use small sofas is a great way of ensuring that all your guests always have somewhere to sit down comfortably. Small really can be beautiful!

How small can it be?
And with our money-back guarantee, you can't lose. We're so sure you'll love your order that we'll change your seating product or offer you a refund if you're not sitting comfortably - meaning you can shop with us with complete confidence.
To get down to brass tacks, our smallest model measures 114cm across on a model with no arms, or if you go for our narrowest arms on both sides of the sofa (you can select an arm on just one side) the width we offer is 142cm, of course an alternative here if space is really tight is to go for a wide seat armchair which measures just 114cm across, the standard depth on all our sofas is 97cm.
With arms - 142cm
Without arms - 114cm
We also have a 'design your own' tool which you can use to look at different options of seat sizes, so that you get a sofa which fits the space you want to have it in. (Essentially, our design your own tool uses the same components as our off-the-peg sofas, but you get to decide their exact combination, so get building!)
For a smaller sofa, popular seat sizes are the standard and medium seat widths. However, we do offer an alternative, which is to have one extra wide seat - this is the same measurement as two standard seats.
The ability to drop the arms on your sofa really comes into its own when space is tight as it means that you can utilise all the available space that you have for seating and not lose the valuable space that would otherwise be taken up by the arms, typically this can result in you fitting in an extra seating space on your small armless sofa, that might mean that mum or dad get a slot on the family sofa when your favourite drama comes on the TV, a definite improvement to being perched on the floor or a bean bag!
Even though you might not have arms on your sofa there is still a strong selection of fabrics and custom options available for your sofa so that you can make it unique to your home and personal sense of style. It's also worth remembering that you can buy one of our sofas off the peg, or use our online design tool to create your own bespoke piece of furniture.
One Arm Sofa
One arm small sofas
A one-armed sofa could be another option to give your living room an unusual, distinctive feel, giving the appearance of a chaise longue. If you decide to go for this option, carefully check with the retailer which way to order your one armed small sofa, as some companies sell these sofas with the arm orientation based on being sat upon the sofa whereas others denote the orientation based on being stood in front of the sofa, it would be a real shame if you had to send your new sofa back and wait several weeks for another sofa over confusion about the arm orientation!
Two of the best ways that we have seen one armed small sofas used in the past are as follows:
The armless end against a wall
Opening up the division between two spaces
Another great way to utilise a one armless sofa is to open up the division between two spaces, for example you may wish to leave the end which is closest to a door or an alcove open so that you don't get the closed off feeling that an arm might otherwise create.
At nabru, we have no fewer than five different types of sofa arms on offer and all of these are available in one of our selection of 75 different fabric choices, you can also choose between steel and wooden feet for your sofa arms.
Extra storage when space is tight
Happily, while you may not have thought of your small sofa as an obvious storage solution, at nabru we have what is potentially a very handy answer. You can always choose to have additional under seat storage on all our models. This provides a very handy place to keep books, photo albums, linen and towels, or anything else that needs to be stored away so that it's not cluttering the place up.
The storage itself is comprised of a handy tray that fits beneath one of the sofa seats, the tray prevents your valuable possessions from ending up directly on the floor and thereby getting dusty and dirty, to access the storage in day to day use you just need to lift up one of the seats on your small sofa and hey presto there's the handy storage space! It's time to go to town with all those household items that you couldn't do with out...
Choose a small sofa bed
Most nabru small sofas can be converted into beds this way, so that your guests have somewhere to spend the night in comfort and privacy.
Clearly, you also need to be able to pull out and make up the bed easily, so that your guests can retire as quickly as possible, and so that you have your living space back again without delay in the morning. With our small sofas, the user-friendly, three-fold mechanism on all models means our sofa beds can be pulled out and put back in their usual space within minutes.
One thing to bear in mind when choosing a small sofa bed for a small space is to make sure that you still have enough room, even after the bed is pulled out. With our models, the total width from the back of the sofa to the end of the bed is 235cm, so bear this in mind before you order.
