Are you living in a small apartment, then you probably have space issues and you’re trying to find ways of making your living space seem larger. And while your bathroom and bedroom are usually the ones where you’d like to expand, it looks like no one would mind their living room to, at least, look bigger. Here are four tricks to a more spacious living room.
If you are thinking about renovating your living room, we can help you get inspired with these living room styles for 2011. Whether you want to renovate or make some small adjustments, this year you can play with colours and shapes like never before!
Throughout the years, the living room has transformed from a formal parlor-esque space designed for entertaining guests to a cozy and relaxing everyday place for friends and family to kick back in front of the television or share stories about their day. Today, the purpose of your living room depends greatly on the size of your home. In larger houses, a living room may still be dedicated only to hosting company, but in most cases a living room may fulfill multiple functions from a home theater or makeshift office to a party space for your children’s sleepovers.
Even if you’re not looking to conceal the TV in any way, sometimes less emphasis can be placed on the television by strategically avoiding making it the focal point of the room. In the space below, designed and built by Epic Development, the sofa faces the fireplace. A TV on the side wall goes largely unnoticed.
Next, select furniture that is comfortable enough for an afternoon nap, but elegant enough for hosting company. Be sure there is plenty of seating and, if possible, arrange all furniture so those seated in the living room will have a clear view of each other and the entertainment center if one exists.
