While everyone boast certainly fantasised at some point about living in a Surrey mansion, the reality is that the majority of people boast limited living room to make use of. Small living spaces are common in many types of studio and other apartments. For the millions of 20–something college students and 30–something couples that have found small housing in big cities, every square–inch of space needs to be maximized. Although the knee–jerk reaction is to be turned off or inconvenienced by a small space, it is not so much about the size of the living room, but rather how it is utilised. Foolish design and placement of furniture exist produce a bulky space clunky and uncomfortable in the same way that innovative design and creative placement of furniture exist produce a little room highly organized and comfortable.
Luckily, furniture makers and home decor emporiums boast had a few decades to adapt their products to fit smaller living rooms. Away are the times of grandiose cabinets and bulky dressers that cart up more space than a car parked in a garage. Much of today‘s furniture is built with a minimalist approach of space saving and multi–usage. Always use illumination and soft colors when putting together a small living space. By using a series of creams, beige or a variety of subtle greens and violets, an aura of peace and tranquility can be established, making the room texture greeting and secure. The size of the furniture that you position interior of a small living space should obviously be minimized, but the shape of the pieces is important to preserving space as well. Look for a couch, table and chairs that are all compact and square–shaped. Avoid bits with bulky armrests that protrude outward from the base of the slice. It is important to preserve a decent portion of visible floor room in instructions to avoid the emotion of being cramped.
When purchasing desks, shelves and items that can double as storage areas, look to go vertical instead of horizontal. Stacking small pieces on top of one another will bring the focus of the room toward the wall while creating substantial storage areas that have a minimal impact on the overall square–footage. Fold–out or stowaway furniture is also a friend of a small living space. Many designers have hired engineers and artists in recent years in an attempt to create cutting–edge styling that serves a double or triple purpose. Soft, block–shaped stools can be tucked away underneath a coffee table when not in use and a bevy of other modern innovations are multi‐functional.
