Keep curtains and shades light
Beige curtains and shades coordinate with the walls in the living room is a trick that helps maximize light. I love light shades and they make helps to make room clean and very fresh. Curtains hung well above the window impart airiness and height. I choose curtain design basic but used extra fabric for fullness. The quickest way to let light in starts at the source. Replace heavy fabric curtains with gauzy ones, making sure the panels go all the way to the floor. To accentuate a tall ceiling, mount the drapes about a foot above windows and doors.
Bring in dramatic color
Big, bright and bold actually makes small spaces seem larger. The more statement pieces, the better. Vibrant colors, a mix of patterns and flowers everywhere make the living room cheerful. Bring your artwork up to trick the eye and expand or accentuate the height of the room. Inject personality into your living space with energetic hues and quirky secondhand finds, like this lamp and plant pieces.
Short pieces, like this tufted couch, keep an open floor plan cozy. Use area rugs to define individual “rooms” within the space. Your style may be posh, your furniture can still be cozy.
Makeover a room by rethinking the pieces you already have. Use up leftover wall paint on the frame of an old chair or refresh curtains and pillows by sewing fancy trim along the edge. Change up tired decor with this quick DIY. Add old wood planks to a coffee table as a bonus shelf. And skip painting — the weathered finish has more character.
Don’t forget to punctuate color with natural texture.I love to use wicker baskets, a wood-frame mirror and an antique pine dresser, flower pots, antique chairs to warm up the living area.
Achieve the drama of a major art piece inexpensively by displaying a tight grid of small photo frames.
Select Small-Scale Furniture
A 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.
If space is tight, you could do without a couch completely, either choosing a love-seat or opting to position four chairs around a coffee table.
