A small room with little natural light is definitely not ideal. Yet you can maximize the amount of light coming through the small window and the way it influences the decor by keeping the design simple and the room uncluttered. A staircase can become an inconvenient if it‘s part of a small living room. However, if you choose glass for the safety walls and a simple design overall, it can look less invasive. You can also use pattern to spread out accent details throughout the room. Paint the walls the same color as the ceiling to make a room feel larger. It‘s a neat trick you can use if you have a small room. You can also have furniture that fits in the same color palette. Another option is to create a uniform and cohesive décor to start with by using the same color for the walls and ceiling and a similar tone for the rug and then to add a little bit of contrast to the room with the furniture.
Layer in color, pattern, and texture. I‘m not talking about going all crazy in the throw pillow department or anything. But when there is visual interest in a space (as a result of tasteful layering and color choice), it automatically looks more sophisticated. Invest in higher-end staples – your sofa, for example – that you want to stand the test of time. Use budget-friendly accessories and accents to brighten up a neutral living room. Mix and match! Hide some carefully chosen generic pieces (read: Ikea) within your more expensive designer pieces to fool the eye into reading everything as high-end. Take this a step further, and customize the lower-end bits to make them original and unique.
The living is the most important part of the house, regardless of its size. It‘s a social area where guests are invited and where you spend most of your time when you‘re home. In most modern homes, the living room and the kitchen share an open plan which is a very smart idea. They are both social areas and by combining them you gain more space.
Regardless of the style you want to adopt, the interior design of the living room should be a perfect combination of functional and beautiful. It‘s why every little detail needs to be carefully chosen. We’re talking about color palette, pattern, texture, layout, materials and everything else.
