5 Styling Ideas For Small But Cozy Living Areas
Leave a lasting impression on your guests even with limited floor space
We'll let you in on a secret—you don't need a ton of room to create a comfortable hangout for your family and friends. When it comes to styling an entertainment area, it's all about perspective. To inspire you to revamp your own space, we've put together five charming spaces that you can use as pegs. Check them out below:
Something as simple as using a tall mirror to anchor the space can transform the look of the entire room. Aside from creating the illusion of a bigger area, it helps bring in more light, too. Accessorize with very few select pieces to keep it from looking cramped.
For those who only have one corner of the home for a living area, you can consider replacing a traditional sofa with a daybed or a trundle bed. These pieces are great because not only are these comfortable seating pieces, they can turn the living area into an instant sleeping space, too.
Using a contrast of neutrals and dark colors can trick the eye into thinking that a room is airy and spacious. To achieve this look, stick to classic pieces and avoid displaying too many knickknacks which can help highlight the clean lines in your aesthetic.
If you're going for an eclectic look, feel free to experiment with different prints and patterns in the same color family. You can also use potted plants and water-inspired pieces to bring in hints of nature to your home.
If you want to stick to a monochromatic color scheme, you can make your living area a sight to behold with different textures. Display photos, contemporary art, and fluffy throws to keep the look interesting. You can also maximize your limited space by utilizing the underside of the seats as secret compartments you can use as storage.
