Personalize your stuff to add character and achieve a custom look. For example, a box-store bookcase (like this Billy from Ikea) can look like a built-in with a bit of moulding and paint. Reupholstering tired old furniture in modern, vibrant fabric is another sure-fire way to give a space a high-end look.
Try a symmetrical approach to change the perspective. Two matching armchairs placed side by side mimic the sofa and the coffee table and the shelving unit tie everything together. Also, the black and white combo suits the room really well. To save space and to also make the room feel more spacious, incorporate open shelves anywhere you can. In this case, the fireplace is wonderfully framed by shelves. We love the way the wooden ceiling stands out and the fact that the lighting fixtures don‘t overwhelm the room. This room is actually a multi-purpose space and it’s amazing how everything fits here when there‘s so little space to work with. There’s a work desk in the corner near the door, a dining table with chairs and a sofa. Shelves were integrated above the door and windows which is a very smart idea.
Find ways to create combos when choosing your furniture. Take this design for example. The sofa fits perfectly into that little nook in the wall unit and the open shelves let the room feel more spacious and less cluttered. Choosing the right colors for the room can be the thing that changes the whole perspective. Paint the walls white and pick furniture that features light colors. It‘s a nice idea to also have some contrasts but avoid dark shades by any means. If the room is small, do you really need bulky furniture? Turn the room into a cozy seating area and focus your efforts on creating a harmonious decor while using as little furniture as possible without compromising on style and comfort.
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.
