Top 5 Best Sofas for Apartment Living

Feb 21, 2017

Choosing the right sofa for your apartment can be tricky. A home theatre-style sectional is a little impractical, and that second-hand chesterfield isn’t going to fit in with your decor. In the hopes of helping you choose the perfect piece for your apartment, and maximize space, Timbercreek Communities has put together a list of the top 5 best sofas for apartment living.1010_first_street_sw_calgary_MLS_HID838558_ROOMlivingroom4

1. Loveseat 

Like a bicycle built for two, a loveseat is the perfect perch for any twosome — and it doesn’t take up too much room in your rental unit! Just be sure to remember the cozy closeness of this type of sofa. This kind of togetherness can be ideal for a couple, but not optimal for roommates. Loveseats are available in many styles and sizes. If you don’t know where to start, check out these Pinterest pins about loveseats.

2. Pull-out couch 

The pull-out couch is the Swiss Army knife of sofas. It's a brilliant choice because it adapts easily to your needs. Whether you have to host unexpected company, are preparing a spare room for your parents, or are just really feeling a mid-Netflix-binge nap, the pull-out couch is the perfect pick. Check out this list of the best sleeper sofas and sofa beds from Apartment Therapy.

3. Chaise lounge

Comfy, casual and sleek, chaise lounges are a great option for your apartment, and are usually more compact than a couch. Our favourite picks? Ikea’s lineup -- check it out here.

4. Sofa bunk bed

Asking friends and family to sleep on the floor when they come to visit can lead to a lonely home away from home. Host friends and family in your small space with ease with a super practical sofa bunk bed! A single sofa converts easily into two completely separate beds -- so no one has to sleep next to uncle Larry.

5. 3-seat L-shaped sofa

L-shaped sofas are great when you live with a roommate or a partner. They allow you both to stretch out on the sofa without getting in each other's way. They also fit beautifully into the corner of a room, leaving you with a lot of open space to put to good use. If you have the space to spare, a 3-seat L-shaped sofa is a great option. Stay on budget with one of these affordable sectional sofas from Ikea.
