Living room ideas for small spaces – The decorative elements used in the living room also determine whether the room feels small or spacious. Painting is one of the most important aspects of renovating a small room. You want something that makes the room appear larger than it is stretched. Light colors are good for this purpose. The room can be trimmed in another suitable color.
Lighting is also important in a small space. Many homes have a ceiling light in the living room, but it is usually not very attractive and does not turn on well. Change the light cover to match your decor and look for energy saving lightbulbs that give a softer glow over the area and a good light. Also add a pair of table or floor lamps to the room with the same criteria as the lightbulb.
It is also important to keep the wall elements to a minimum. A larger one on the wall above the sofa as well as some family photos strategically well framed would go a long way. A low flower arrangement on the coffee table with a candle on each side gives the room simple elegance. A few books stacked on a stand add a homely feel to the room. A fountain on a flat surface in the room makes the room appear calmer.
