You can make a big difference by selecting the best layout for small living room. It should be determined before the process of remodeling takes place. You can use a graph paper to define the location of the door, windows, TV, fireplace, and furniture pieces. Therefore, you can increase the large feeling in the space without reducing the comfort. Placing the living room furniture pieces near the door is not a good decision.
It will be hard for the people to come in and out of the room if the door is blocked. Maximize the space with the appropriate layout so that you can enjoy watching TV and the guests feel entertained when spending the time in the space. You do not have to hire any professional interior decorator. You can do this layout project with family and friends to help you. Here are few smart tricks to make the space look incredible and large.
Avoid placing the traditional furniture pieces. Opt for the modern or contemporary ones which have sleek lines and streamlined design. Moreover, the pieces should be multipurpose. For instance, you can purchase a sleek ottoman that you can use as a coffee table and storage space. A stylish sofa equipped with a rack at one side is another creative choice which can save a lot of floor space in this small room. If you choose a modern swivel chair, make sure that it features slender legs and simple design. Therefore, the small living room design will look bigger.
The color ideas that you apply in the room will affect the roomy feeling. If you dominate the space with dark tones, it will look smaller. Apply neutral or soft colors like cream, peach, pastel, lilac and vintage white tone as the primary color. The accent tone is nice in black, red or charcoal grey. If you have the living room combined with other rooms, the color schemes should be well coordinated.
The light ideas are divided in two options. In the morning, you need to have large amount of sunlight to make the space brighter. When the evening comes, turn on the modern pendant lamp on the ceiling.
