4 Easy Ways to Furnish a Small Living Room without Making It Appear Small

Decorating a small living room in 4 easy ways

When it comes to decorating and furnishing any part of a home, the rule of thumb is to create a cohesive and clutter-free space.

This means choosing pieces that go together for a clean look. Decorate around that GlobeWest coffee table you choose or vice versa.

If you are working with a small space, however, you need to achieve a balance between style and function with your choice of furnishings and decor. How do you make this happen?

Avoid bulky furniture

This is the best way to furnish a small space and retain a spacious look and feel. Instead of sofas and tables that are thick or overly padded, choose items with a slimmer profile.

Doing so will save you up to a foot of space, creating the illusion of a bigger room. Slimmer pieces also mean they are easy to move should the need arises.

Take the minimalist route

It’s understandable that you’d want to invest in GlobeWest dining chairs with rolled arms, high back or bulky frames. They’re beautiful and inviting to look at. This should not be a problem for a huge dining area. Click here Sunday Society

However, for a small living room, stick to slim and minimal pieces.

Because minimalism also means decluttering and keeping the number of furnishings to a minimum. You should also look for items that serve two or more functions such as the Lagoon Curve Daybed from GlobeWest furniture or the Baxter Marble Shelf Coffee Table that has a shelf underneath for storage.

Buy furnishings that are visually light

Examples of these are GlobeWest furniture pieces that feature modern lines and a slim profile. These include:

  • Henley Coffee Table
  • Henley Chevron Console
  • Southport Piazza 3 Seater Sofa
  • Lagoon Dining Chair and Bar Stool
  • Henri Dining Chair
  • Geo Dining Table

Because you can practically see through one end of the living room to another, even when the furniture pieces are in place, a small living space will appear spacious.

Hang things on the wall

Because the floor area is limited, opt for wall-mounted accessories and furniture items.

Instead of a floor lamp, install a wall lamp or a sconce. Wall hooks, on the other hand, make a space-saving alternative for a coat rack. You should also look for a TV unit or credenza that can be mounted to the wall.

Now that you have all the furniture items that you need, arrange them the right way.

For small living spaces, one golden rule is to never push the furniture up against the walls. Doing so will make a room look and feel smaller which is contrary to your original goal–fully furnish a living room without shrinking it.
