It’s a common misconception that small spaces can’t handle large furnishings. One large piece can do a lot to make a small room inviting, anchored, and even feel bigger! Take the sofa, for instance.

Arranging a small sofa in a tight space with a couple of other chairs can make a space feel over-full, with little spots of furniture all over the place (not to mention all of those legs!).

But one great sectional that accommodates all seating in one swoop can actually make a small room feel more gracious: it multitasks by defining space, providing space to stretch out for a nap, and accommodating guests with plenty of seating for everyone!

Here are some favorite examples of small rooms with large sofas.

What do you think of going this route over lots of small pieces of furniture?
