How to Make Your Small Living Room Look Bigger

We are all guilty of it. We take a look at a room and think, "that couch/TV/chair/table will totally fit!" The problem is that our eyes are bigger than our room and we often end up crowding our space. There are a few tactics you can execute to get the utility you desire while escaping the feeling of a crowded room.

 

1. Think About What You Are Trying to Achieve.

Do you need to sit 2 people? 3 people? just you? instead of a full-sized couch, try a love seat or two armchairs. Sometimes reclining armchairs can be very comfortable, so don't be surprised if this is a more optimal solution. In addition, two armchairs can share a table between them, eliminating the need to have two end tables hugging a couch.

 

2. Are There Any Pieces of Furniture You Can Live Without?

Some believe that a coffee table makes a room, or that end tables are essential. But that is not always the case. They can be handy sometimes, but if you really need a place to rest your feet, make sure your couch has a reclining mechanism, or consider a shelf on the wall above your couch instead of end tables.

 

3. Hide it

Obviously, the most common thing that makes a room feel small is clutter. Make sure you spend the time to set up your living room storage properly. drawers for books and entertainment consoles, a sturdy TV unit to hide drink coasters and DVDs, or baskets for blankets and pillows. Making sure you have enough storage will help enable you and your family to keep the clutter clear.
