Living in a small home doesn’t mean that you have to have a boring decor.
Not all of us live in a big home with enough room to let our imagination wild when it comes to home decor. In fact, some of us live in the big cities and have smaller apartments that are more difficult to work with. However, this doesn’t mean you have to give up on great decor! We’ll show you some amazing living room ideas and tips to elevate your living small living room decor!
One of the many challenges for apartment owners with small living rooms is not only how to place the furniture just right, but also make it all functional and leaving enough place to breathe. A cramped and narrow living room completely ruins the decor and brings a feeling of enclosure that is exactly the opposite of what you’d want out of a living room, a space that is made for relaxation after a long day.
A key tip for decorating small living rooms is to find furniture that can fit the space and still leave some space to breathe, and that can serve multiple purposes. Don’t be afraid to make use of every single space, even the corners of your living room. Relish on the use of mirrors that add a sense of more space to a room, and bet on art on the walls to give personality to your living room.
Arrange the furniture layout in a creative way and use lighter colors if you wish to bring a sense of freshness and lightness to your small living room. Of course, if you do go for darker or more neutral colors, add a pop of a brighter color here and there, mostly on the accessories, to bring life to the decor. And don’t forget to play with the light to your home’s advantage! Natural light is your best friend, but some lighting pieces here and there also bring a lot of uniqueness and personality if chosen right.
In a small living room, every piece of furniture matters. Choose leaner tables, tight-back sofas and club chairs. Comfortable, fitted to the small space and modern, they are your best friends when decorating for your small apartment. Consider wall-mounted shelves and a floating desk over bulky bookcases and workstations. Even make use of the living room corners for a simple space of relaxation, using a simple armchair, a small rug, amazing accessories and even a side table.
This small living room is the perfect example of what you can do with your space. With plenty of seating space, all furniture serves a purpose, looking modern and beautiful with the mixture of different materials that combine perfectly together. With a mix of styles, such as the Scandinavian one that teaches us all about minimalism and the use of neutral colors with a pop of color here and there. The seating space is not pushed against a wall, but rather in the middle of the room, providing a lot more breathing space.
With these tips, you’ll get your perfect small living room in no time!
