Simple Design Tips for Small Living Rooms

Furnishing a small room can be a challenge. Living rooms tend to be particularly tricky, since they need to accommodate not only you and your family, but also any incoming guests. The key to furnishing a small living room is making informed furniture purchases. Furniture choices that may work perfectly in a large living room, may not necessarily work in a room of a smaller size. To help you tackle this home furnishing challenge, here are three simple tips that will help you make the most of your living room space.

Choose Neutral-Colored Living Room Furniture

One of the best ways to open up a space is by choosing a light neutral color scheme. Think beige, off-white, or soft shades of blue and green when selecting colors for your walls, rugs, and living room furniture. While dark colors tend to make a room look smaller, light neutral colors will make a room look bigger, brighter, and more inviting.

Opt for Small Scale Living Room Furniture

When most people think of living room furniture, they envision full-size stationary sofas or large sectional sofas. While these seating options are great for some, they can completely overwhelm smaller spaces. Think outside the box when furnishing your living room, and be open to new options. For instance, you can pair a small sofa or a loveseat with a set of armless accent chairs. You could also consider using a slim chaise lounge sofa as your primary seating option.  

Consider Living Room Furniture with Built-In Storage

Another great way to conserve space in your living room is to choose furniture with storage capabilities. For example, we sell storage benches and storage ottomans that include discrete under seat storage compartments. These furniture pieces are perfect for storing your remotes, cables, or any other small accessories that might otherwise create clutter in your living room.
