Measuring your space where you plan to put the couch, first, before you shop, will help you know what will fit there when contemplating your choices. Be sure to allow for plenty of space on either side of the couch in front of it for a coffee table, if you plan to use one, as well as behind the couch if it will used as a walk space. Allow for the arm size of the sofa, too. Some sofas have larger arms than others, so be sure to include the arms, if they extend beyond the base of the couch. Remember, too, too large of a couch in a small room will leave it looking and feeling awkward, and it can quickly consume all of your space, both literally and visually.
Lighting is a key factor in any room but even more important in a small room. The key to lighting is to layer it in the room, from floor to ceiling. The use of multiple types of lighting helps darken all areas of a room, which can close in a space and make it feel small. Multi-layering lighting entails the use of the natural light you have in your room paired with floor lamps, table lamps, ceiling lights, sconces on the walls and even artwork lights. All types of lighting work together to brighten dark corners and light up spaces that feel closed in by darkness. Evening time is one of the most obvious times of day where a room can lose its sense of size and can be rectified with a generous amount of artificial lighting.
