Small spaces can be a challenge to decorate. The wrong color can feel claustrophobic, too much furniture can feel chaotic, and the wrong patterns just feel too busy. Professional interior decorators are master illusionists when it comes to meeting these challenges. Using ten of their favorite tricks, you, too, can make a small space look larger than it is.
The next way to decorate a small living room is to change the furniture arrangement. You can move the furniture away from the wall, which is actually recommended for small rooms, or at least slant a couple of pieces of the furniture just to add personality to the room.
This apartment is small but it’s efficiently decorated to accommodate all the necessary things. The living room is combined with the kitchen and the dining room, and each of the areas has its own décor accents. The furniture is multifunctional, for example, the sofa can be transformed into a love seat or a chaise lounge. The table has three levels and can be used as a dining one. A built-in wardrobe in the bedroom wall is another smart furniture piece that effectively saves the space. The décor style is modern, the color scheme is light and airy, reminds of Scandinavian and there are some cute industrial touches like a chic brick wall.
Tiny furniture isn’t a must, but there’s also no need to fill the space with a giant couch or table. Try to resist the temptation to fill up the space when you don’t need to. This will just make you and your guests feel like you’re being crowded out. Design elements like shelving, hidden storage, accent lighting and a solid color scheme also go a long way in making a small space seem larger. When picking out chairs, consider armless ones because they will take up less space than a model with arms. What are your favorite ideas for making your small living room look larger?
