If you have a smaller space in your home, then you know how difficult it can be at times. While we happen to love the idea of a cozy space that isn’t as big, having a smaller area can be overwhelming, particularly when you have a specific decorating style in mind. The key is knowing how to rearrange your furniture to make the biggest impact, regardless of what decorative pieces you use. The following guide will help teach you how to rearrange your décor.
Center your Love Seat
When you have a smaller living room the issue lies in making sure you have an even balance in the room. In order to do just that you want to create a centerpiece while still having seamless balance, this can be achieved by displaying your largest love seat in the center of the room. Keep your seating within the 2-4 range to allow breathing room throughout. Furthermore, you want to decorate around your seats for a great impact without taking away from the square space you have in the room.
Double Style Furniture
One of the best things you can do for the layout of your furniture is having pieces that double in use. You want to have furniture items that can either hide some pieces within them or can be used for other reasons. Think of each furniture pieces as an additional item that can make a grand appeal within the room. Consider having an ottoman with storage to help you hide clutter while still being useful and easy on the eye.
Place in Front of the Window
If you are fortunate enough to have a window in your living room, you want to take full advantage of it by placing your furniture directly in front. Having your furniture in front of the window allows you to bring as much light into the room as possible. It also helps you have an expansive feel right where you need it most while allowing you to enjoy the view.
High ceilings are truly a blessing in disguise if you are blessed to have high ceilings you want to take full advantage of this and create a “look up” concept. This can be done by having vertical items in the space. Furthermore, consider having a grandiose chandelier that forces you and your guests to look up and fall in love with the particular space.
While many do enjoy having decorative décor and bringing your character forth in your décor, having crisp lines as the main focus is the way to go. In order to do just that you want to have a simple, open display. Having this specific feature brings you not only beauty to the room but a clean feel. Display your décor in a modern format for that crisp feel.
Having a backless sofa brings a bold sense of chicness to the room while giving you something extra. There is a sense of floating that happens thanks to having a backless sofa that is easy to fall in love with. Pair with stools or other smaller furniture pieces to make the space feel complete without overwhelming the room.
Just like wallpaper, plants are a wonderful form of adding depth and color to smaller rooms. The beauty and lush feel of having greenery soften corners allows the smaller spaces to feel grander than the room truly is. This happens by tricking the eye to thinking the room is rounder then what it truly is in an effective manner.
Built-in Storage Wall
Instead of having your décor displayed in all areas of your home, consider having a built-in storage wall. Having a storage wall allows you to showcase what you need exactly when you need it without creating clutter or diminishing the size or aesthetic of the room.
Embrace the Fireplace
While deciding on the placement of your furniture always consider your fireplace. The fireplace is one of the best furniture pieces when it comes to embracing the size of the room. In order to showcase the most out of a room, you want to embrace the fireplace and fall in love with every aspect of it. Place your smaller decorative pieces directly in front of your fireplace for the ultimate appeal.
Curtains are your Best Friend
Curtains- beautiful pieces of fabric that help bring beauty to any room while adding color and sometimes texture. While having curtains might not seem like the saving grace of any room but they actually are! Place them around your windows to keep light out, but add beauty directly in.
