When your living room is on small side, be sure to are aware of the furniture pieces you are adding into that room. It's important not to overburden an inferior space with way too many pieces of furniture or too large of furniture. The keeping furniture and area rugs in a small space is essential. To be able to visually expand the area, keep furniture toward the surfaces. Clumping furniture too close together, or too close to the center of the area, will visibly shrink an already small space.
Choosing the right size rug is extremely important in a smaller sized living room. Using too large of a rug will wrap up seeming like the key floor coverings, or carpet, in a room. Using too small of any rug can look like an afterthought and unplanned design factor. You won't have the right influence on your decorating as a well thought out and designed rug. Essentially you should choose a rug that is large enough to pay the center of the floor, but not too large that all of the furniture over the perimeter of the area rests fully together with it. If you move the rug such that it covers more of 1 side of an area leaving exposed floor coverings on the other side, you will again visually change the looks of the size of the room. Small living spaces can be greatly improved by choosing and using the right area rugs.
If you are using your living area as an area where you watch television or movies often the placement of the furniture and Television or projector is even more important. Setting the tv and seating furniture along complete opposite walls is often the best and perhaps only solution, proper keeping a location rug can help maintain your room from aesthetically shrinking. Place the region rug before or within the television set then place the furniture along the contrary outside border of the rug. This aesthetically expands your floor space and will keep you from sensing too cramped. When possible, use a round or oval molded rug to remove a boxy feel.
