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.  

At Quality Furniture, we have an extensive selection of affordable brand name furniture that will enable you to create your dream living room in any size home.

Simple Home Furnishing Tips for Fall

Now that we are officially in the throes of fall, it’s time to get your home ready for the chilly months ahead. Fall is a time to start making your house more cozy and warm, and to think about the holiday season that will soon be approaching. In order to give your home a more autumnal feel, you may want to consider making a few home furnishing changes or additions. Follow our three simple tips to make your home more fitting for fall!

Add Warm Colors Throughout with Home Accents

Furnishing your home in fall colors is a lot easier and more affordable than you may think. Instead of completely replacing your furniture, all it takes is a few carefully selected home accents. For example, consider purchasing a throw in warm earth tones to drape over your living room sofa or across your bed. Paired with a set of matching decorative pillows, these home accents can add the perfect pop of autumnal color to your living room or bedroom décor. Area rugs are another great home accent that can be used along with your existing furniture. Area rugs that feature shades of brown, orange, or burgundy are perfect for any room, and they can even be layered over wall to wall carpet.     

Purchase a Cozy Fireplace Unit

Nothing says fall quite like a crackling fire. If gathering your family around a fireplace is something you would like to experience this season, consider purchasing one of our versatile fireplace units. Our fireplace units provide all the benefits of an old-fashioned fireplace, but without all the arduous work involved to maintain it. These unique home furnishings feature an electric LED fire—no wood required—and they are designed to easily slip into one of our TV stands or media consoles. A fireplace unit will no doubt add beauty and romance to your living room décor.

Start Preparing for Holiday Dinners

The beginning of fall is the perfect time to start preparing for the coming holidays. Holidays like Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Day often involve large family dinners, so if you plan to host a party this year, make sure your home is furnished accordingly. Consider adding a dining server or a dining room buffet to add extra serving and storage space to the room. This will free up table space and allow you to conveniently serve your guests in a buffet style. These dining room furniture pieces will make holiday entertaining a breeze!
