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.
Only have space for a TV in your small living room but don’t want it to take away from your tasteful design? Mount the TV on some rustic pallet board or get a little more creative with a built-in TV cover.
Measuring your space where you plan to put the couch, first, before you shop, will help you know what will fit there when contemplating your choices. Be sure to allow for plenty of space on either side of the couch in front of it for a coffee table, if you plan to use one, as well as behind the couch if it will used as a walk space. Allow for the arm size of the sofa, too. Some sofas have larger arms than others, so be sure to include the arms, if they extend beyond the base of the couch. Remember, too, too large of a couch in a small room will leave it looking and feeling awkward, and it can quickly consume all of your space, both literally and visually.
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.
