If you use your living area as an area where you watch television or movies often the keeping the furniture and Tv set or projector is even more important. Positioning the television set and seats furniture along contrary walls is often the best and possibly only real solution, proper placement of an area rug can help maintain your room from aesthetically shrinking. Place the area rug in front of or underneath the television set then place the furniture along the contrary outside edge of the rug. This visually expands your living area and will keep you from feeling too cramped. If possible, use a rounded or oval formed rug to eliminate a boxy feel.
If your living room is on small side, make sure you are aware of the furnishings you are placing into that room. It's important never to overburden an inferior space with too many pieces of furniture or too big of furniture. The keeping furniture and carpets in a tiny space is essential. To be able to visually expand the space, keep furniture toward the walls. Clumping furniture too close jointly, or too near to the center of the area, will visibly shrink an already small space.
