Make the Most Out of Your Small Living Room Space

If you live in a townhouse, apartment, or condominium, you definitely cannot have large furniture. Following are some tips which you can follow in making the most out of your small living room space.
  • Pick the right sizes of furniture. This way you can be sure that you will still have enough space to move around and place other gadgets.
  • You also need to maintain the tidiness and neatness of your living room. Objects that are of no use in the room will only create a mess and will also compete for space with your furniture.
  • For your chairs and tables, get those with legs and open spaces underneath. Box-style furniture blocks away the much-needed space which needs to be seen so as to give an airy feeling in the room.
  • Sofas and couches can be too big for your living room. Chairs can be alternative seating furniture and they can be as comfortable as sofas and couches all the same. Have them upholstered so sitting on it will be comfortable.
  • Have chair pads and cushions which can be tied onto the chair so they can stay in place.
  • Choose glass as the material for your coffee table. They are effective in reflecting and letting the light in to the living room. More light means that more space can be seen in the room, thus making it look bigger.
  • Colors, texture and patterns in the designs of the living room also influence the illusion of space in the living room. Go for neutral and light colors to make the place look roomier.
  • When you want to put accessories and decorations in the rooms, choose small ones so you can put a considerable number of decorations in the room. If you want you can also put a few good fair-sized fixtures which will act as accents but be sure not to put too much so as not to clutter the room.
  • Paint your walls in neutral and light hues.
  • Throw pillows, rugs and floor carpets also need to match the colors of your room.
  • You can opt for vases, jars, and furniture with detailed and delicate carvings.
  • Slim and vertical furniture is best for a small room. This will enhance the height of the room. Furniture that will serve this purpose includes tall corner lamps, shelves, a grandfather clock, and jars and vases.
Buy only the necessary furniture you need. Make sure that you have enough to accommodate guests and members of the family while at the same time ensuring that you can all be comfortable in the living room.
Again, let me reiterate that having a small space is not a problem. It only needs good planning to make your small space bigger. So before you go into any furniture shop or online furniture stores, make sure that you have a mental picture of how you want your small living room to look like.
