Do you have a small living room? Are you struggling to find furniture and decor that fit and compliment the space? We can help! Here are four quick ideas to keep in mind when arranging and decorating your small living space.
Mirrors give off the appearance that a room is larger than it actually is. Moreover, hanging a mirror over a fireplace or behind a couch or love seat will make the space feel larger than it actually is. Don’t go overboard, but adding one or two nicely framed mirrors will add depth to your living room for sure.
Go Lighter On The Paint
Lighter colors make a room feel brighter and larger. For example, if you like the color blue, go with a lighter blue in the living room space instead of a darker blue. You can still highlight the darker blues in pillows, throws, wall decor, lamps, and so much more! Save the darker colors for larger rooms.
Accent With Long Curtains
Does your small living room have a window or two in it? If so, capitalize on them! Moreover, purchase some longer curtains that flow all the way to the floor. This will elongate your window and wall giving the appearance that the room is larger than it really is. Go with lighter colored curtains also. This is a great opportunity to bring out some accent colors that you are wanting to highlight. Just make sure that light can easily pass through the curtains to brighten up the room.
Don’t Overpower The Space With Large Furniture
A small room doesn’t necessarily need large, bulky furniture. In fact, furniture that is too large for the room makes the room feel smaller. Instead, go with lighter, more modern and less bulky furniture. There are tons of cute, stylish pieces that can compliment even the smallest spaces. Choose furniture that is multi-purposeful. For example, a coffee table with storage inside or under it can help avoid clutter on end tables or on a sofa itself. Make sure that there is plenty of space between your furniture also.
