The good news is there's plenty you can do! You might realise it, but there are scores of design options available for small living rooms. Is your one in need of a new lease of life? Well, it's a good thing that you've stopped by and are checking out this blog post! Here are a few suggestions for you to try out:
Use light colours
The golden rule of decorating any small living room is to stick with bright colours. Why? Darker ones can make your living space appear even smaller! When you select a colour like white or something "pale", you make the living room airier.
That means it gives the impression the living room is bigger than it is. A bonus is that white paint is usually the cheapest colour that you can buy. So, you get to be an illusionist and a savvy shopper at the same time!
Get some Roman blinds
Do you have some big old curtains hanging up by your living room window? If so, it's worth taking them down and replacing them with some stylish Roman blinds!
There are companies that can come out and design a bespoke solution for your window. That means you don't have to settle for Roman blinds that are too big or small for your scenic area. Nor do you have to cut them down to size yourself.
Create a feature wall
In every living room, there is a focal point that all people will see as soon as they enter it. You might think that your options are rather limited for a small living room such as in your home. But, it might surprise you to learn that there is plenty you can do!
For example, you can create a feature wall using some stylish wallpaper and a large mirror. Of course, it goes without saying the paper you use should complement the wall colours.
I recommend making the wall opposite your window the feature wall. Why? Because it gives the illusion of extra space and makes it feel like you've got another window!
Get rid of that bulky sofa
Do you have a large behemoth for a sofa in your living room? If so, sell it or donate it to charity. In its place, you should put a smaller-scale sofa that is still comfortable but doesn't take up a lot of space.
There are many sofa and seating options you can choose. Consider checking out some antique shops in your local area for ideas too.
Get a glass coffee table
Last, but not least, consider getting a glass coffee table for your living room. Again, it helps to create the illusion that you've got a large space. And, let's face it; a transparent table will fit in with any decor!
