Opt for pale colors over darker ones, and select pieces that have legs while avoiding those that are boxy. Glass coffee or end tables will take up less visual space than wooden ones because you can see through them. Any furnishings that don’t obstruct views will make an area seem more open. A list of small living room ideas would not be complete without the recommendation to select furniture that won’t overpower the room or appear to dominate the space. A sofa with thin arms and a tightly upholstered back is preferable to one with substantial arms and a multi-cushion back.
Tiny apartments are amazingly cozy but they have one biggest problem – managing to fit all the furniture they need inside the house. Thousands of designers create thousands of space-saving furniture, different solutions and ideas to contain everything the owner needs. The owner of this small apartment found a very creative solution: he made a cube that includes a shelf for his vinyl collection, space for the TV and storage for clothes and shoes. The TV has its own designated space on one side of the cube while adjacent to it there’s storage for clothes and shoes underneath. Around the TV there are shelves and compartments for books and for the owner’s collection. On top of this compact structure there is also a guest bed. A door found next to the ladder lets you inside the cube where you find even more storage space. Unbelievable!

With such furniture construction you could make a functional yet nice place from even a very small room.
Tiny furniture isn’t a must, but there’s also no need to fill the space with a giant couch or table. Try to resist the temptation to fill up the space when you don’t need to. This will just make you and your guests feel like you’re being crowded out. Design elements like shelving, hidden storage, accent lighting and a solid color scheme also go a long way in making a small space seem larger. When picking out chairs, consider armless ones because they will take up less space than a model with arms. What are your favorite ideas for making your small living room look larger?
