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.
Mid-century furniture is simplistic in design. It is designed using clear lines and soft curves. You won’t find many bold designs, fabricates or overstated patterns in mid-century furniture. And because your furniture is the main focal point of a room, these are the types of pieces you want to select for a mid-century living room. Materials used to construct mid-century furniture are wood, fiberglass and other metals. Saturated colors are very commonly used in couches, chairs. You can mix and match styles of couches and chairs and pair theme with a mix and matched set of tables.
To get the most use out of your room and furniture, choose pieces that can serve as a multiple function piece. Using an ottoman as a coffee table is a popular idea for small spaces. Many ottomans also offer storage space inside to help hold items that would clutter the floor. Use small bookshelves to hold baskets for storage as well as consoles with doors can be used to hide things for a tidier room.
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.
