Designers and manufacturers know that a lot of young corporate people and entrepreneur would rather rent a small apartment that fits a bachelor or a bachelorette that invest in big homes. And because the this target market is continually growing, the trend today for sofas in Sydney and other parts of the country is compact sofas. These are scaled down furniture that will fit any small space like a small living room, bedroom, den or guest room.

Apartment sofas
This is also a new trend. These are furniture that perfectly fits small spaces then can go as small as 66 inches and just about 40 inches deep. There is usually just a pair of cushion and rather small arms. Designs vary and there are those that have an armless structure to do away with obstruction.

Sectional sofa
This type of sofa are also great for small spaces. Although they are bigger than a single couch, as a matter of fact, they are good for cramp areas because they are small sectionals that go through a corner or separated all together. You can get a 2 or 4 piece sofa, without the arms, so you can have more versatility.

If you want to create an illusion of space, you need to remove bulky designs and barrier that may trick the eye to perceive more space. For example, a sofa with open legs and space underneath, gives it a spacious look. Low-slung sofas give the perception of space and takes up less volume than those sofas that sits higher.

Sofa beds
