Designers often place mirrors strategically in small places in order to make them feel larger. One of the most common small living room ideas is to hang a large mirror in a central location to create a focal point. To reflect light and add a nice ambiance, put it behind a light source such as a candle or pendant lamp. If possible, position a mirror across from your window so it will reflect the view and give the illusion of another window.
Whether you are lounging, socializing or entertaining, these are our favorite living room centerpiece ideas for creating a space that you will love spending time in. Section off your living room with a sofa table along the backside of your sofa. Situate your sofa in the center of the room facing the main wall. Choose a brightly colored sofa and a glass table with a few heavy decorative items, such as a stone statue or solid vase, to make for a really dramatic and sophisticated look. The pairing of the sofa and sofa table will create distinct areas in your living room that will add depth and function.
The ceiling is a surface that is often overlooked. By adding a splash of color overhead you can create a visually interesting contrast with your walls and make the space more dynamic. The effect can be subtle if you choose a muted shade, or you can brighten a white room with a bold color. If you have low ceilings, selecting a cool shade like blue or lilac will make them appear higher so you can fool the eye into thinking the room is bigger than it really is.
Uninterrupted movement is one sign of a large space, so arrange your furniture in a way that allows everyone to move easily from one area to the next. Determine how someone enters the room and where they`re most likely to go, such as to a sofa or desk chair, then arrange the furniture so people can use paths without obstruction. Make sure to allow enough space to perform tasks common to the room, such as opening and closing window coverings and reaching for light switches.
There are plenty of great living room decorating ideas to bear in mind. In smaller rooms, make the most of the space available by installing the televisions in a wall-mounted cabinet. Don`t go overboard on decoration, and try to manage the amount of seating space so that people can move around easily. Many people also like to include a decorative focal point like a mirror or painting to round off their rooms, giving a sense of harmony to the whole design. Flowers located around the room add to a light, organic effect. Balance and harmony are key at all times when designing a living room. Accessories can be the finishing touch to any living room, but how they are used depends upon the style being created. A modern or minimalist Scandinavian style living room will include a few accessories, but when they are used they really matter, so include stylish throws or rugs in moderation. The great thing about accessories is that they can be easily moved or completely replaced, so experiment to your heart`s content to create the perfect living room arrangement.
Create a formal conversation area as your living room`s centerpiece to warm up the space and make it a place that you will enjoy entertaining guests. Use four armchairs arranged around a light glass coffee table and add some delicate décor, such as a vase or a stack of coffee table books. To create a rich, warm ambiance, use large comfortable leather arm chairs and place a wood table between them. If you`d like to create even more seating, try arranging two different sets of arm chairs on opposite ends of a long coffee table and then situating a sofa along the length of the coffee table.
