Small spaces need not be exempted from having stunning furniture. Even when a home is small, it can still look inviting and lovely when one knows how to properly decorate it with useful and beautiful pieces.
Take for example the living room. A house’s small living room space can still be a nice place for your guests to hang out if it is accentuated with creatively situated pieces while keeping in mind the idea of not compromising its restricted look as well.
Here are five tips to creating a living room with furniture that actually compliments a small space:
Dual purpose furniture
Find pieces that are multi-functional for the living room. Ottoman storages are perfect for this idea so you can still make use of them even when you are not seating on them. Books and toys of your kids can be stacked up in these storage spaces when not in need. Having couches that can turn into bed for the night is another option or wall pieces which can also serve as hook to hang your coat or scarves. A wall cabinet for small trinkets can even serve as a wall decoration if you can turn it into a stunning piece of art.
Mirrors for a larger view
It has always been known that mirrors create more spaces for small homes. Put a large mirror at the middle of your living room to make a central point and thus giving a spacious look. Complement the large mirror with a nice lighting coming from a chandelier or lamp which can create a vision of larger space.
Paint furniture with neutral hues
To create more spaces for your living room, painting your furniture, floors, walls, and ceiling with neutral colors can make a difference. Experimenting with light hues like peach, off-white, and beige can make a room not only calm-looking but classy as well. You can seek painted living room furniture ideas over the internet or you can hire a company which does the job for you.
Ditch the heavy
Heavy looking furniture can make the living room look heavy and small too. Furniture which is light in look, color, size, and even its designs give a lighter vibe inside a room. Consider having glass furniture rather than wood ones. See-through furniture also give a vision of more space.
Coffee table book, chairs, doors and windows made up of glass or transparent material do not limit what the eyes can see and thus giving the idea that the space is more spacious.
Low furniture for more space
Have more air space by investing on furniture that is low and far from the ceiling. Couches and other seating furniture give more space in the living room as a whole. It lets the air inside the room around and not restricted. Center tables with low legs also lessen the space’s crowded look.
Are the still many ways how to make a small living room look spacious and beautiful. You just need to be more creative in designing your space so it can also reflect the people living in it.
