You’re looking forward to settling in for the night, but as you reach for the remote control, you trip over the bulky coffee table and find yourself face to face with the rug! If only you had more space in that tiny living room… Guess what? You’re not alone. Even inhabitants of roomier living spaces often lament that they don’t have a larger area for entertaining, lounging or visiting with family. The bottom line: unless a remodel is in the budget, we must appreciate the space we have. And there’s no better way to do this than by making some strategic design choices!
Make Every Piece Count
When space is scarce, it’s important to make every piece count. In fact, for extra compact rooms, the less furniture, the better. Rather than looking scarce, these spaces can shine with carefully selected furnishings. The room below proves that one large art piece, a vibrant sofa, a striped bowl and interesting greenery can give a room an artistic appearance.
Incorporate Glass and Acrylic Furniture
We now showcase one of today’s most popular design secrets: the space-multiplying illusion created by see-through furniture. As we’ve mentioned in previous acrylic furniture posts, transparent pieces seem to disappear in a room. This is great when you’re trying to make a space appear larger. At the same time, acrylic pieces are undeniably chic, evoking modern design, or even vintage glamor!
