4 Ways to Style a Small Living Area
Opt for pieces that help make the room bigger and more spacious. Let these tips guide you
Given the limited space, one area of the house may end up serving two or or more purposes. In some small homes, the living area may also function as a home office or an extension of the dining area.
To be able to deal with small space challenges, you can always do some space-saving tricks and work with multipurpose items. Let these four tips guide you.

Side tables don’t have to be matchy-matchy. Create an eclectic vibe at home by working with pieces with different styles or materials. You may pair glass pieces with wood ones. Just make sure that they are of the same height, and that they don’t overcrowd the living area.
