Average loveseat dimensions range from 4 to 6 feet long and 28 to 30 inches deep. They are smaller than standard sofas, which typically measure 6 to 8 feet long and 32 to 40 inches deep.
Placing a loveseat in a small living room instead of a sofa opens up the space, making it appear larger. Homeowners can add visual interest to a loveseat by grouping it with small chairs or bright, patterned pillows. Placing a loveseat against a wall of contrasting color also makes it stand out in a room. In larger living spaces, homeowners can pair a loveseat with a matching couch to create additional seating.
