There are certain issues that always come up when trying to arrange living room furniture. From creating conversation areas to determining a focal point, to figuring out the best size rug, these tips will help you create a functional and visually pleasing living room.
Don’t take up too much valuable floor or table space with lamps. Choose recessed, wall-mounted, hanging or shelf-mounted lighting. Floor up-lighting is also a great way to enhance a small space. When decorating a small living room that doesn’t have a lot of natural light, choosing light shades of flooring, furnishings, walls and decor can do a lot to brighten your space.
Dark woods, dark furnishings, and dark paint shades will make even the largest space feel smaller. It’s easy to overwhelm the space with too much color and too much texture or pattern. When it comes to color in small living room decorating, stick with light shades and neutral tones. Small spaces work best with a three-color (or less) palette and do especially well with an all-white decorating scheme.
Decorating isn't as easy as just picking a paint color and filling your room with furniture. There are a lot of things to think about and a lot of tricks to help you along the way. If you're a beginner, or just need a little help, check out these top tips.
