Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Design Tips

Your living room may hold a special place in your heart. From cozy movie nights to spending quality time with your loved ones, your living room has been there for it all. Whether you are downsizing or redecorating your current space, you consider your living room to be on the smaller side. But just because it is small does not mean it cannot have tremendous potential. Let us help you turn your small living room into something as individual as its memories.

Unique Ideas for Small Living Rooms:

Barely There.
Interestingly enough, interior designers recognize the fact that light color furniture can be an excellent choice for smaller rooms. The subdued colors help create the illusion that your space is more substantial than its actual dimensions. They blend well into the room and feel as if they are barely there.

 

Neutral Tones.
Generally, in smaller spaces, neutral color schemes tend to work best. The neutral colors help to make the space flow and leave the room feeling refreshing and open.

 

Play Off of The Vertical Perspective.
In any small room, you want to use the vertical length of the room to your advantage. Play up the length of your walls by accenting them with long curtains or decor pieces.

 

Smaller Pieces.
In a smaller space, it is a good idea to use smaller pieces. Furniture and decor pieces tend to tie in well with the room’s size when they reflect the size of the space and help make it feel more appropriate to the room’s dimension.


Embrace Natural Lighting.
There is nothing quite as beautiful as natural light. Be sure to always open your curtains during the daytime to let the natural light flood the room. Also, you may want to consider buying sheer curtains that allow the light to come through even when the curtains are shut.


A Glimpse of White.
When in doubt, white can be a great color selection for small spaces. White is a tasteful and classic color that will never go out of style. It is perfect for small areas because it reflects light well and does not intrude with other decorative pieces.


The Great Divide.
If you have an open floor plan, you may want to consider dividing the room off with furniture pieces. A simple sofa or table could create a small division that separates the area visually.


Direct Traffic.
An excellent idea for small spaces is to create a clear walking path that directs guests towards the seating. Just consider the layout of the room and how functional it is to newcomers.
