Having smaller homes is a common scenario for many people. That is why their living rooms have smaller floor areas as well. Nevertheless, it does not mean that your living room cannot look hip and impressive to guests. It does not mean that you cannot be comfortable and satisfied with your living room too. With the right small living room furniture, you living room can look elegant and it can look chic as well.
Save Space and Avoid Clutter
What you need is small living room furniture that saves space. For instance, you can use corner sofa sets so that all pieces are next to the wall. You will be able to maximize the use of space right to the corners.
And so you have more space in the middle left. This will also make the room look cleaner since furniture pieces are not scattered in the middle. Of course, if there are just two of you in the house, you can also opt for a two-seater couch and still place it next to the wall to maximize space. With minimal number of furniture in the room, there’s less clutter so the room somehow end up looking open and cool.
Aside from using small living room furniture, it would help to use furniture that has more than one function. For example, you can use a futon sofa-bed so that while it saves space because of size it also serves as a spare bed. Of course, many sofa-beds today also offer storage. So again, you are able to maximize your use of available space. You even save money as well.
Coffee and side tables also offer more storage today to facilitate such a need. So you should look for this type of furniture to make your living room not only look fashionable but functional as well.
Create an Illusion of Space
Using small living room furniture already helps create an illusion of space. But the use of small items should extend to accessories as well. For one, if you have to decorate with framed artwork or photographs you should use smaller frames too.
Of course, it also helps that contemporary furniture has smaller spaces in mind as well. Without the traditional elaborate designs contemporary furniture now feature narrower and cleaner designs. This helps save space and avoids a cluttered look. You also get a more modern feel into the room.
Another way to create an illusion of space is to accessorize with complementary patterns. For instance, if you have to use throw pillows choose cover designs that somehow blends with the color and the design of the sofa. This again helps avoid clutter in your overall living room design and ambiance.
So in the end, you have to handpick every piece of furniture and accessory that goes into the room. While space is a problem, there is a way to go around it. When you learn how to save space, avoid clutter and create an illusion of space, your living room can be elegant and impressive as well.
