Decorating can often be a challenge if you are faced with furnishing a small living room. This is especially true if you live in an apartment or a home with a living room/dining room combination. The lack of space can be daunting, and even more so when it comes to finding just the right couch.

Many stylish couches are on the larger side, which might leave you wondering what are your options when your living room is lacking in space? Luckily, there are a ton of choices available that can provide you with the right style and size you need.

Loveseats are a smaller version of a full-size couch that typically seats two people comfortably. Although they usually accompany a couch in a living room set, it is perfectly acceptable to use one as your main couch.

A chaise is another option for smaller living rooms. A chaise is basically a long chair that you can lay on or sit on. It's an excellent choice when there is a lack of space. There are even loveseats with chaises! Another possibility is a futon. Futons are typically smaller than couches and they open up so you can also sleep on them. They come in many different styles, so they can accommodate all types of living room decor.

Now that you have an idea of the countless options available for a smaller living room, it's time to get decorating. To help you get started and give you ideas for decorating your own space, we have selected 11 great couches for small living rooms that we just know you are going to absolutely love!
