Let’s get started. You can use mirrors and wallpaper. A small living room, especially if it is short on windows and space, you can feel a bit boxed in. Create a focal point, boost light and add depth all at once by papering a wall and hanging a big mirror on top. If you can position the mirror across from a window, the better the mirror will reflect the view outside, giving the attraction of an extra window. You can think about layout idea, center the love seat on the papered wall, flanked by a pair of matching side tables and lamps. A large woven ottoman can work as a coffee table or an extra seat looking good. If there is room, you could work in an extra small scale chair or two across from the love seat in this arrangement. You can add hidden storage, pick furniture with built-in storage to limit clutter to use your space. A trunk or storage ottoman as a coffee table works colorfully well. Along the perimeter of the room, try a small chest of drawers or a small credenza instead of a console table to boost storage options. Please choose small scale furniture, it is the best idea. There is more to living room furniture than full-size sofas and bulky armchairs.

Antique shops and many more are a great place to look for small-scale furniture, because the average room size was typically quite small until the last half century or so. Look for small settees, love seats and chairs that can work in your space. The love seat is centered in front of the bay window, with petite tables on either side, it is really looking beautiful. A pair of the sofa, with a trunk as a coffee table in between. An antique reamer is positioned on the beautiful wall diagonally across from the sofa, with a slim stylish console table opposite it. If your small and beautiful living room is blessed with high ceilings, take full advantage of that extra space. While vertical space does not help with squeezing in an extra seat, drawing the eye upward does help give the best impression that your room is far larger and grander that it would otherwise it is ok.

Fill the vertical space with an electric art gallery. You must fill a corner. It is a bit counterintuitive, but if you have a small corner living room space, sometimes going with the largest piece of furniture possible can actually make it feel bigger. A generously sized sectional like the one shown here is comfortable and able to seat tons of people, but because it reads as just one piece, it helps the living room feel uncluttered. A modern sectional with clean, straight lines works better in a small space than an overstuffed.
