BIGGER & BETTER
In a smaller living room, it’s tempting to opt for smaller furniture because you’re afraid to overwhelm the space with too-large pieces. However, selecting a larger sectional that hugs the walls not only creates ample seating for guests, it also helps make the room feel warm and inviting. Plus, filling a small room with lots of small furniture can actually make the room look smaller – instead, edit down your furniture needs to a few large, multi-functional pieces.
If you can’t build out, build up! Tall bookcases and shelves help you use more space for storage. Plus, an attractive wall shelf can also serve as a decorative display in lieu of expensive artwork.
A really simple small space tip is to open up floor space by creating floating fixtures. Instead of selecting a media console that sits right on the floor, opt for one that hangs off the wall! The space underneath the console makes the room appear larger, and you can use the space as extra storage if you’re in a bind. Shop our media sleepers here:
