The smallest living rooms are often the most beautiful and useful to those who know how to decorate them correctly. A giant living room – to some – can feel empty and too open. Living spaces should be cosy and comfortable, right? Well, we agree!
A smaller living room doesn’t have to feel poky and small, though. It can feel grand and majestic. If you know how to put your creative side in the right place, you can make this space feel lively and energetic. So, let’s check out some of the best ways you can improve your living room and create more space at the same time!
Add A Splash Of Color
Accent walls may not be your thing, but when you have a small space you can add one to brighten the room without consuming it. Three walls in a lighter color, such as cream or white, and one splash of color to one wall will open the space and give it a look of being bigger even when it’s not!
Oh, these boxes of brilliance can really transform the room! You may have a lot of books and knick-knacks, and with ottomans by the windows (and even as a coffee table!), you get extra seating and storage all in one.
Replace The Carpet
Did you know that carpet can shrink a room? It’s not just the height, but the warmth it adds. Golden Oak Wood Flooring can help you to instantly create more space and make the room look far airier than anything else!
Getting rid of netting on your windows and replacing the curtains for blinds will help the natural light to stream into the room. It’ll also add more space purely for having a blind. The curtains can consume the walls around the window and when this happens, you end up with a room that looks darker and closed off. Light adds space: it’s a no-brainer.
Invest In Mirrors
Large mirrors that sit opposite the windows and doors of the living room will offer you the instant light that you need. Think about the way that you want the light to bounce to every corner of the room and add mirrors that will make that happen!
Floating Shelves, Anyone?
For that extra storage space you desperately need, invest in and install floating shelves. Not only are these a great way to add space, you can do it without cluttering up the room. Floating shelves can sit as high up as you please in your living room, but the main aim is to have somewhere to put your photographs. Think about the way that you want the room to look, and then invest wisely!
With the right suggestions, your little living room will be living large! Save some space, add some color and bring in the light as much as possible to enhance a smaller room. Add the right furniture and a little artwork and boom – you’ve got a great living room!
