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.
Coffee table, cocktail table, occasional table … there aren’t many pieces of furniture that have multiple names and uses. When you consider how important (and functional) a great modern coffee table is to a living room, it’s incredible how often it is taken for granted.
Whether you’re a fine-art connoisseur or just like gazing at your favorite painting, an art display can be a wonderful addition atop your mantel. You can go for a trendy gallery wall, either hung above the mantel or sitting atop it. Alternatively, you can make a statement with a single large piece of art that reflects your tastes.
Flat-screen TVs have made their way to our mantels, and they’re probably here to stay. If you’re planning to put your TV over your mantel, then mounting it straight to the wall is an aesthetically clean way to do so. If you can, mount it flush with the wall so it looks less bulky. Alternatively, you can conceal it behind a cabinet.
Many small living room ideas revolve around tricking the eye into making the area appear more spacious. Such strategies can transform an area that feels cramped and claustrophobic into one that feels cozy and aesthetically pleasing. Decorate in a way that maximizes light and space, and pay attention to how you use color, scale and weight. It can make quite a difference.
