The living room is the hub of a house. However, when it is narrow and cramped, you can fit it hard to select or arrange furniture. Nevertheless, even when you have a small living room, you can still make it look big. Here are a couple of decorating ideas to help you make the most of your small living space.
Highlight the Best Features of the Living Room
The best way to make your living room appealing is to highlight the room’s assets. Get creative with lighter colors to create a sense of expansiveness. You can also include a stunning centerpiece, vase, or fireplace. This will create a source of attention.
Scale Down Furniture
Now that your living room is narrow, every furniture piece matters. Make use of wall sconces and leaner tables to save more floor space. Seats such as club chairs and tight-back sofas can also be used for sitting.
Get Creative with the Layout
A limited spaced room will challenge you to think out of the box. You can use built-in banquettes to maximize space and conversation areas. In the event that the room is narrow, yet long, arranging sofas back-to-back may be a good idea. This will allow for two seating areas.
Add Visual Interest with Décor
When you have several sources of lighting creatively placed at different heights, your eyes will be drawn to different areas around the room. This will make the room appear fascinating and bigger. You can also balance it up by placing a larger attention-getter at strategic parts of the room. This can include a bold accent wallpaper, mirrors, artwork, eye-catching gallery wall, and so forth.
Float Some Furniture
Another way to get the best out of your already tight space is by floating some of your furniture. Float the couch in the middle of the room. Transform it, and make it look like a space for conversation.
With these tips, you can get the best out of your small living room. Not only will the room look bigger, it will also look more appealing.
