Designing a small space design often presents a challenge, especially when dealing with a living room as it’s the place you probably spend most of the time. How do you make a room feel as spacious as possible while squeezing in extra seating at the same time? Which furniture should you choose and how best to arrange it? Here are some design tips on how to give your living room the illusion of spaciousness while maintaining functionality. Let’s get started!
Natural light is every interior’s best friend! Possessing a modern living room that receives an abundance of natural light and has big windows is a huge advantage. Because brightness increases space, leave the windows uncovered or opt for long sheer curtains instead of heavy drapes.
When using overhead lighting they tend to focus the eye to only a small part of the room. However, by installing a few smaller lamps in each corner you are going to draw the eye around thus making the room appear larger.
Mirrors are perhaps the best way to visually expand a space. Use strategically placed mirrors to boost light and add depth to your bedroom and other places in your home decor. Place one where it will reflect light the most, usually across from a window. That way it will reflect the view outside and give the impression of an extra window. Watch your space double in size!
