Let’s talk about small living rooms today?
I believe there’s no right or wrong when decorating your home, as it should reflect you and be filled with things you love.
But, if you have a small space and want to make it feel and look bigger, then there are things you should avoid doing.
And I’m about to share with you 3 of the most common mistakes I see my students making when they first come to me and how to fix them!
So here we go, the 3 mistakes you should avoid when decorating your small living room.
Mistake no 1. Hanging your curtains too low
Try to hang your curtains as close to the ceiling as possible.
Because if they are too close to the window, they’ll shrink the space.
Also, make your curtains full length (ceiling to floor) as it gives a better finish to your space, make it look more high-end and elongates your room.
Mistake no 2. Picking small rugs
Just because you have a small space, doesn’t mean you need a small rug.
If you go for a large rug, it’ll trick the eyes to believe that the floor area is bigger.
So when choosing the rug for your living room, make sure it’s big enough to touch the feet of all the pieces of furniture in that area.
Mistake no 3. Choosing chunky furniture
When selecting your bigger pieces of furniture like a sofa, for example, look for clean lines, slimmer arms and avoid anything too bulky as it will make your room feel even smaller.
Plus slimmer arms means more seating space, what’s priceless when you have a small sofa!
Ok, let’s recap!
These are the 3 mistakes you should avoid when decorating your small living room:
- Hanging your curtains too low
- Picking small rugs
- Choosing chunky furniture.
