Designer Tips to Maximize a Small Living Room

Just because you live in a small-sized apartment doesn’t mean you have to skimp when it comes to decorating. No matter how small your space is, with the right selection of décor you can create the illusion of more space.


Multipurpose furniture

A good way to keep your small space organized is to invest in furniture that is multi functional. Opt for light and comfortable items that come with storage.

Along with smart furniture choices, setting up a bookshelf or small library in one of the corners of your room can open up your space and give easy access to your written resources.


Unique wall art

Don’t neglect the walls. Pick up a few decorative canvas prints to add a personalized touch to the room. Designers often decorate small living rooms with landscape paintings in order to make them feel larger. Visually expanding the walls with pieces of art creates the illusion of more space in a room.


Let There be Light!

When possible increase the light in your room. If their is a big window, remove the curtains to allow as much natural light to enter throughout the day. Rooms without natural light can appear bigger if you brighten them with overhead light.This will make the ceiling look higher.


Choose the right color scheme

One of the most common approaches to expand any space is the use of a monochromatic color scheme on the walls, floor, and furniture upholstery. In small living areas calm and cool colors, as well as light colored furniture work better than dark, oversized pieces. If you are starting from scratch, painting the walls and ceilings in the same matching color can make the room seem more expansive. The cool colors will reflect more light, making a small room instantly appear more open and spacious.
