Sara Castell. Living Room. August 15th , 2017.
The teenager that lives in this South African home has an entertainment room that would make Tony Hawk proud. Inhouse Brand Architects outfitted the space with a concrete skate bowl, inspired by a skate park in London, according to Visi Magazine. The design team amped up the wow factor with custom artwork by street artist Jack Fox covering the walls.
Designers often place mirrors strategically in small places in order to make them feel larger. One of the most common small living room ideas is to hang a large mirror in a central location to create a focal point. To reflect light and add a nice ambiance, put it behind a light source such as a candle or pendant lamp. If possible, position a mirror across from your window so it will reflect the view and give the illusion of another window.
Another tip is to go with a shallower depth. Tight-back sofas and sectionals don’t have extra pillows and can be as shallow as 32 inches while still feeling as generous as a standard 40-inch-deep sofa. Going for a sectional 32 to 36 inches deep can help you open up more valuable square footage.The set consists of an armless chair, a corner chair and an ottoman; add any combination of modular units to make it as big as you need.
A sectional is a functional alternative to a sofa because it offers extra seating and lounge space. Just because you have a small living room doesn’t mean you can’t have a sectional. In fact, a perfectly sized modular sectional may be the best option. What else would you do with that corner, anyway? Might as well make it extra seating.
