A room’s size isn’t just about the floor space and square footage, but the room’s height. Take advantage of and use your room’s vertical space to help create the illusion of more space. By adding tall objects and décor pieces, you can help to draw attention upward instead of out, to open the room. Ideas include the use of tall vases with tall or layered arrangements, tall paintings or stacked paintings, adding floor-length drapes, floor lamps and tall mirrors.
Placing multiple area rugs in different sections can give the appearance of having more than one space within a room. Mixing patterns and using eclectic designs like the berber/ boucherouite rugs pictured above can especially liven things up.
Going with the same theme of the wall colors, light colored furniture adds space to the room as opposed to darker colored furniture. Dark colored woods on furniture can shrink a room and draw your vision inward rather than out. Light oak colored wood has less vision weight compared to dark woods. Furniture with legs also gives you more floor space visual and allows you to see more of the floor, adding more square footage to a room where as furniture that sits directly in the floor, eats up flooring and makes a room feel small and tight.
The next thing you need to decide upon is a good theme of your choice for the living room décor you have in mind. It would likely be best if you stick to a single theme per the room, encompassing the walls with similar decorations that work well in all cases. Clean and simplistic design is a safe bet. Make your choice wisely and work with anything that will get things looking good in the long run, as long as it stays within the realms of the aesthetically pleasing and not something unfeasible.
