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.
In a small room, large furniture does not make sense. Large furniture instantly takes up vital space and closes in a room, however it isn’t just about smaller pieces, it’s about choosing the right smaller pieces that will help increase your room’s size and feel. Examples of properly scaled furniture can include the use of a small bench for a coffee table, smaller sized couch, chairs without arms and clear tables. One mistake that can be made is overdo the placement of small furniture and cluttering the room with too many pieces.
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.
When everything is pushed against the wall it can make things look cramped, but when furniture is centered allowing you to walk the exterior it can create the illusion of spaciousness and help the traffic flow if you have guests.
