Helpful Tips on Decorating with Small Living Room Furniture...

Decorating a small living space can be difficult because of the minimal space that you can work with. But you can arrange small living room furniture to make the room  appear larger than it is. By positioning furniture a certain way and following a few decorating instructions, small living room spaces can indeed be inviting and comforting, rather than uncomfortable Choose a fixture or piece of furniture that will be the focal point of the space. For most living rooms, it can be a fireplace or the family TV. Pick one that is more appropriate to the needs of the room. Position your seating area the focal point. If you desire a couch, opt for a small loveseat instead like the Regent Cushion Loveseat by Ave-Six. For chairs, choose one or two small ones that do not appear overpowering. Reclining chairs are usually large and therefore will not be suitable for smaller rooms. Opt for a smaller coffee table, if you could use one. Rather than buying one large coffee table, get two smaller ones. You can arrange these tables any way that you want for as long as you can easily move them around if there is a need to make more space. Aside from a coffee table, you can also get a side table like the Andy Round End Table by Allan Copley Designs. Avoid buying furniture that covers the windows or prevents any natural sunlight from entering your living space. Natural light often gives the illusion of a bigger room, so positioning tall furniture in front or near windows can emphasize the smallness of the room. Pick shelving units that stand tall against the walls like the Greenington Carmelized Magnolia Shelf. Limit their number to one or two, so that some wall space is still visible. Wall space can help give the illusion of a larger space, especially if they are painted with white or any light color. Select lighting options that are simple, and yet give ample lighting. Avoid purchasing chandeliers or other dramatic lighting options as these pieces tend to overwhelm the space. A tall white floor lamps should be an ideal option for a small room. Finally, hang a mirror on the wall to create the illusion of a larger space. Never hang more than one or two, though, as having too many reflectors can make your room appear tasteless. So, are you now ready to start furnishing and decorating your small living...
