5 Great Furniture Alternatives to Optimize a Small Living Room Space

Looking to spruce up your living room but find that you don’t have the space to make your ideas and dreams come true?

Well worry no more – there’s a lot of interior decorating you can do to bring out the best in your small living space!

In fact, here are ten amazing ideas that’s sure to bring out the best in your small living room:

1. Clear out the sofa!
While you think it’s vital that you need to have a sofa in your home, there’s a good chance that it might simply be the one piece of furniture that’s taking up the most room in your home aside from the shelves and cabinets.

2. Mount your TV.
Maximizing space also means minimizing the number of things on the floor, and this may also mean mounting your television screen instead of setting it on a table. Once you do this, you’ll find that there’s more space in your living room than you first thought.

3. Have an adjustable table in the center of your living room.
It can be a little tricky to make your living room space relaxing when there’s not enough space to move around. With height-adjustable furniture, you not only free up more space, but can also adjust them for the occasion.

4. Use ottomans to double as extra storage and chairs.
The next best thing to adjustable furniture is multipurpose furniture. While both are important, you should especially look for a way to store items in your living room that will eliminate the need for additional shelves.

5. Install floating shelves.
If you don’t have enough space on your floor, use your walls!

There’s a good chance that you’re not thinking about vertical space when you want to re-decorate your living room, but when you do decide to take this into account, you’ll be surprised at the amount of stuff you can clear by simply having them on a floating shelf.

Because floating shelves have such a minimized profile, they work great when you’re trying to clear as much space in the living room as you can.

Aside from the furniture, other things you need to consider for your living room are the wall colors and light sources, since they can easily affect the atmosphere and ambiance of the living room.

Lastly, you should especially think about the format of your living room before considering the type of furniture to get – no piece of furniture, no matter how aesthetically pleasing, can work in any space, and some just better suited for wide spaces than others (this makes proper estimating crucial).

How to Increase Your Home’s Aesthetic Appeal

 

Your environment affects you more than you know; in fact, your surroundings affect your mood and even your level of productivity. Fortunately, creating a welcoming home doesn’t require any particular skillset. All that you need is a bit of will and persistence, while putting the following tips to use:

  1. Look for an Inspiration

Enhancing your home requires some level of creativity or inspired thinking, so try to be imaginative. Even if you already know where you’d like to start, it’d still be a good idea to check if your ideas are in fact doable or if there’s a better way to do them. We suggest that you spend some time searching through home design websites to look for an inspiration. Through this, you’ll be able to improve your existing ideas or find new ones.

  1. Remove All Clutter From Your Home

The first stage of your home improvement project is to de-clutter your space. If this step likely involves a lot of work, then it’d be best to start by cleaning one room per day. Get rid of the unnecessary things in the room to make way for the new ones. However, instead of simply throwing your old stuff away, try to make some money out of them by organizing a backyard sale – and you can even use the money from that sale for your home improvements.

  1. Perform Some Minor Home Repairs

Once your home is ready to be worked on, it’s now time to get your tool box and perform some minor repairs in your house. If you don’t know where to start doing the repairs, however, perhaps it’d be best to pay attention to stuck windows, squeaky doors and other irregularities that you might’ve forgotten. While you’re handling your tools, go through your old items to see if there’s anything that you can restore, such as old ornaments or a coffee table that just needs a layer of paint.Home-Decor-Image

  1. Apply a Layer of Paint

Applying a new layer of paint to your walls is one of the easiest and surest ways to increase your home’s aesthetic appeal. However, you need to decide whether or not you’ll do it by yourself. Naturally, your decision would depend on your budget – hiring a professional will save you some time but it’ll also cost you some bucks. If you’re going to do it yourself, then it’d be best to consult an interior designer to help you choose paint shades that will bring out the best in your home.

  1. Add Some Homey Touches

This is the most important step to enhance the beauty of your home. Remember that it’s the small things and cute details that make a home look welcoming. You can use them to highlight your interior design and create a unifying theme in all the rooms in your house. Apart from decors and trinkets, it’s also possible to add some homey touches using colour – get things like picture frames and pillows in different shades of your favourite colour, for instance.

A little spark of creativity and inspiration is all you need to get you start with your home improvement project. Yes, it’ll take some time and effort, but all your hard work will surely be repaid by what you get to enjoy in the end.
