A small living room – probably one of the worst case scenarios for every woman who is in love with interior design trends and likes having her place styled in a way that she could have as many furniture pieces as she wants. Everything placed in a way that will work best with the room’s concept without bumping into them every time she moves around the room. Luckily, designers have upped their game and have introduced many tricks and ways to make small living spaces appear more spacious and appealing to the eye. Take a look at the following ideas if you need to rethink your living room to make it the spacious-looking like retreat you’ve been dreaming of for so long.
The Curtains Treatment
If your living room has curtains, lift them up above the windows and create a feeling that your ceiling is higher. Whether you prefer curtains, draperies or blinds, window treatment can make your room appear bigger. You can use a vertical striped fabric to accentuate the height of your ceiling better. Opt for fresh colors or a mix of dark and light hues that will enhance the feeling of largeness.
Gather a few furniture pieces in the same color on one place and paint the walls in the same colour palette. This way the furniture will blend into the room and will visually enlarge the space. For example, you can use a grayish modern corner lounge and a coffee table made of glass. Gray is subtle and can be mixed with many other colours, so painting your walls gray won’t stop you from adorning them with your beloved works of art or photo memories.
Play It Smart with the Furniture
The above mentioned modern corner lounge will be the perfect choice for your living room furniture. These are really economical options for small rooms because they offer a lot of sitting area, some of them even offer an extra storage and an extra bed. The best thing about them is that they don’t take up as much space as a sofa, an armchair and an ottoman would, for example. You can also opt for built in furniture so that you use every centimeter of your living room wisely.
Mirror Mirror On The Wall
A large mirror can easily create an illusion that the room is bigger than it actually is. Not only does it make the space appear larger, it also bounces light around, making your living room appear brighter. You can create a beautiful symmetry by hanging a mirror above the modern corner lounge or the sofa. If you opt for this approach, make sure the length of the mirror matches the size of the sofa.
