If the bedroom is the soul of the house, the living room can be likened to the appearance of the entire living space. You and your family will spend most of your time here. Of course if there are guests visiting, then the living room will be the most important space. However, not all of us are fortunate to own a spacious and airy living room space to be able to freely decorate and display our favorite furniture. The smaller the space, the more you have to learn how to maximize them but also the aesthetic aspect. Due no one wants their appearance to look sloppy and lack of polish.
A living room without decorative items bearing the owner’s personal imprint is just a lifeless, lifeless living room. It could be a wall painting you bought on a business trip, or even a vintage styled picture like the one pictured above. One advice here is to choose items with rich sizes, a little colorful. You will see a noticeable difference right away.
Accent Wall (why not?)
Similar to wall paintings, accent wall is an idea not to be missed if you want to refresh your small living room space. On the one hand, this will be the focus of the entire room. On the other hand, an accent wall will be a great tool to add depth and personality to a room.
Accent wall with monochromatic color or with many fun textures, both will make your small living room more special. And since the area is not too large, you can completely repaint this wall or change the texture for them to suit the season, trend or simply your preference.
Focus on The Windows
Lighting plays a very important role in a living space. Especially with a room that is not too large, the size and level of light entering the room will determine how you feel about that space. Therefore, you should not do anything that causes the windows to be covered. For instance, placing a large piece of furniture right in front of them.
And a familiar tip to help you “expand” the space is to choose a set of light-colored window curtains, extending from the ceiling to the floor, your room will look much higher. If there are not many windows in the room, you can cover that wall with a layer of darker curtains to create a luxurious feel.
To create a sense of richness in color and style, use transitional design styles – combining interior elements with rich design and style. Doing so will create a sense of enjoyment for you and your guests, so the feeling of space is not large will also be reduced.
Choose a symmetrical interior arrangement for a small space. This will create a sense of neatness and orderliness for the space. However, it should be noted that furniture should not be placed against the wall. This will make the room feel smaller and not cozy.
Contrary to the above suggestion, we think that you can fully take advantage of the minimalist style for your small living room space. To do this, choose a dominant color, and design around that tone. This way will make the space neat and clean, thereby also making the living room larger.
This style also saves you more money later on because the minimalist design is basically very trendy and timeless. You won’t have to change, over the years. Furthermore, the focus of the style is on the function of the elements, so they will often be very durable over time.
Mirrors are always the first choice for any small space. This is a great item to make a space feel larger than it actually is, making it feel brighter and more luxurious.
The brighter the room, the more spacious it will feel. Place the mirror anywhere that can reflect natural light (for example, opposite a window). Also, choose mirrors with bright metal trim to increase the brightness.
Pay Attention to High
One of the great ideas for small living room spaces is to utilize the height of the room itself. Directing the eye from the floor to the ceiling will make the room feel taller and more airy. You can choose from floor-to-ceiling curtains, a ceiling light system, or an array of walls decorated with pictures and photos in the right direction. This is one of the most effective and simple tips but rarely used. You can also take advantage of this to increase the personality of your living room space.
Light Colors Application
Lighter tones help the space feel light. The lighter and brighter the space, the larger it will feel. With a small room space, you have to create more of a sense of depth and height, and white and light colors will help you do that. Moreover, light colors will help your walls and furniture blend together. It makes the eye feel relaxed in all directions, thereby making the room feel more open.
Give Floor Space
The more floor space that is exposed, the larger the room will feel – again a great tip for small rooms. Get rid of the furniture you don’t need and increase the space between the remaining items on the floor.
You can choose furniture with slim design, to increase the free space, choose ceramic, metal, or acrylic countertops. These changes will make the room space seamless and of course – expand the space even more.
