If you use your living area as an area where you watch tv or movies often the keeping the furniture and Television or projector is even more important. Setting the tv set and seats furniture along other walls is usually the best and perhaps only real solution, proper placement of a location rug can help keep room from aesthetically shrinking. Place the area rug before or within the tv set then place the furniture along the opposite outside border of the rug. This visually expands your living area and will keep you from sensing too cramped. When possible, use a spherical or oval designed rug to eliminate a boxy feel.
Deciding on the best size rug is really important in a smaller sized living room. Using too large of any rug will conclude seeming like the main flooring, or carpet, in a room. Using too small of an rug can look like an afterthought and unplanned design component. It will not possess the right influence on your decorating as a well-planned and organized rug. Essentially you should choose a rug that is large enough to protect the center of the floor, but not too large that all of the furniture across the perimeter of the room rests fully on top of it. If you shift the rug so that it covers more of 1 side of an area leaving exposed floor coverings on the other hand, you will again aesthetically change the appearance of the size of the room. Small living rooms can be greatly enhanced by choosing and using the right area rugs.
When your living room is on the smaller side, make sure you know about the furnishings you are adding into that room. It's important not to overburden a smaller space with too many furniture pieces or too large of furniture. The placement of furniture and area rugs in a small space is vital. In order to visually expand the area, keep furniture toward the wall surfaces. Clumping furniture too close mutually, or too near to the center of the room, will visibly reduce an already small space.
