They say a darker paint would look better than a lighter shade for a small room. This is because it would give a sense of depth to wall, thereby helping to create an impression that room is larger than it actually is.
A small living room can be expanded by taking one of the walls down. Get rid of the wall separating your living room and the kitchen, or your living room and the hall way. But remember, safety comes first. You can always resort to losing a wall to maximise your living space, as long as it won’t harm the structural resistance of the building.
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.
Sometimes the answer is as simple as relying on the furniture you already own. In the next image, a sofa distinguishes a living room from a bar area in a chic family home.
The first step that gets things moving along is designing a firm, fixed schedule for cleaning your home. It doesn’t matter whether you do it every day or once a week or even once a month; but having a well-defined schedule is crucial. It is one thing to have a schedule and a whole different proposition when it comes to following it strictly and without fail. Have the discipline to do so.
