Top 5 Small Sectional Couches

After a long day, nothing is more relaxing than coming home to sprawl out on a comfy sofa. But if you live in a smaller container home, you may think that you don’t have space for a sectional couch.

While most sectional couches in furniture stores are well over 100 inches long, there are some great sectionals available that are perfect for small spaces. Most come in at under 90 inches with some even hitting the 80 and 70-inch mark.

Sectional chairs are made of several individual pieces that can usually be configured based on your needs. Most of the couches below offer the ability for the chaise (the longer part that includes support for your feet and is great for lounging back to watch TV or read a book) to be on either side of the sofa. Regardless of how you have your rooms configured now (or in the future), these sectionals will give you the flexibility to have a great chair that fits the space.

There are plenty of stylish options for small sectional couches that will fit in your container home, and below we’ve selected five of our favorites that have a look that’s both classic and modern. They will mesh well with the contemporary design that container homes often embody while not being so polarizing that they’ll be out of style in a few years.

And best of all, they’ll fit right into both your décor and the small area you have to work with.
