The Best Small-Space Furniture Picks For Tiny Apartments

Maximise your little patch of real estate with these small-space heroes.

Whether you’re living in an apartment, granny flat or a proportionally challenged house, fitting out a small space can be tricky! But there are options out there – you just need to know where to look.

Designing for a small space often means compromising on the size of your furniture – but that shouldn’t mean skimping on style or comfort. Before you start shopping, make a list of the furniture pieces you need and measurements of the space that they’ll go in. From here, you can start searching for styles that will fit your home and your aesthetic.

With an increased demand for small space solutions, the team at La-Z-Boy have put together a complete comfort guide to furnishing a diminutive floor plan. It’s filled with stylish options to suit every need – here’s what they suggest.

Reclining Suites

At La-Z-Boy you’ll find lots of reclining options to suit small spaces without compromising on comfort. Take the Anika set, available in leather or fabric, for something sleek and sophisticated. This set is as modern as they come and you can choose from a 2-seater, 3-seater or recliner.

Another compact recliner is the Eden. This is one of the most popular sellers in the La-Z-Boy range, and it’s easy to see why. It comes in either twin recline or static options to cater for every family member’s wants and needs. Choose from a 2 or 3-seater or recliner in fabric or leather.

Stationary Suites

As the name suggests, these products don’t recline, making them ideal for smaller spaces. The Prague stationary set includes a modular sofa, ottoman, armchair, 3-seater and a 2.5 seater. The entire suite is super-stylish with modern finishes, such as a linear profile and tapered wooden legs.

Alternatively, the Arna stationary suite offers a chic yet casual aesthetic with features such as a tall back, sloping arms and high conical legs. This set is elegant and effortless while providing optimal comfort so you can sit back and relax in your new space. You can choose from a modular sofa, 3-seater, 2.5 seater and an armchair in this collection. We love options!

Occasional Chairs

Finally, if you’re really tight on space or live in a studio apartment and want to complement the existing furniture with extra seating, try a La-Z-Boy occasional chair. The Nordic Recliner will suit a contemporary setting perfectly. Key features include optional glide, reclining and swivel action, plus a powered headrest for customised comfort.

For something a little more minimalist, consider the Colorado power recliner. It offers the elegance and style of stationary furniture from the popular Duo collection, with the added bonus of a recline function. Even better, you can place Duo inches from the wall to bring added functionality and flexibility to any room.
