Designing a small space can be tricky, especially if you have a living room so tiny your legs practically hit the wall when you’re lounging around. These little hacks will give your living room the illusion of spaciousness while maintaining functionality so you can do everything from throwing a chic cocktail party to cozying up on the couch with your real best friend.
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.
Mirrors provide a visual effect that can give the illusion of extra space. When mirrors are arranged to reflect certain things and areas of a room, they open up a room to create more light and the feeling of a bigger room. Mirrors can also have a negative effect and shrink a room if they reflect the wrong things, so placing them strategically is critical in order to get them to work for you.
Brick walls aren’t something you traditionally see just on the outside of a building, but they are becoming common place to see as an interior design, and living rooms are the common place you might find a brick wall. Living rooms are the gathering place in the house. You gather to visit, entertain, watch television, read and just relax. Home owners want the living room to be inviting to family and friends, and one way to achieve a warm and cozy atmosphere is to incorporate a brick wall in the room. It may not sound like a brick wall would be a warm and cozy décor scheme, however, the right choice of brick and you can create a whole new look and feel to the room that adds character and an interesting focal point.
