When it comes to considering small living room ideas, making the most of your space can seem like an impossible task. But even if you are limited with the size of your living room, there are still plenty of ways to arrange it and make it functional as well as pretty. Below, you will find images of small living room ideas for apartments and houses that you can use as a reference when decorating.
If you already know what you want, use the filters to find exactly what you are looking for. Select colour, floor type or even TV setup to narrow down your selection of pictures. When it comes to designing a small living room, there’s a few things you want to keep in mind:
Use The Windows
Being limited by the size of the actual room means that you must get creative and use all the good features of your apartment to make it look larger. One of those little tricks is the use of natural light. If you place the couch next to your window and let the sunlight in, your pace will feel a lot more airy and open. As a general rule, avoid darker-shade curtains and opt for lighter colours and textures throughout so you don’t block out the natural light.
Pick A Large Rug
Bold patterns on a larger rug will give your room a more spacious feeling. This can even turn into a theme you can use to decorate the rest of your apartment. If you combine it with a corner sofa, you will get a more compact and cozy space that is visually larger than it would be with a regular couch.
Painting the walls white or any other bright colour can open up a small living room and you won’t have the feeling of the walls closing in on you. It can be a great idea to put a large painting on these white walls and make it the centrepiece of the room - it’ll add a sense of greatness and its actual size will not be an issue any longer!
