Furniture Design: Things you can do to transform your living room

Many people that have smaller homes often are unsure how to make their homes seem relaxed and inviting when it comes to decorating. Just because you have limited space that doesn't mean that you can't make the most of it. Here are a few things you can do to transform your living room into the space that you've always wanted.

Visualise Your Space

When you aren't sure exactly how everything will turn out, it is important for you to decide how you want your room to look before you start buying furniture or moving items around. Using Pinterest, blogs, friends, and home décor stores like Koala Living can help you to find the inspiration that you need to choose living room decoration items for your home.

Choose a New Sofa

A sofa is an eye-catching focal point for any living room and sofas are available in a variety of different shapes and sizes that allow them to fit into a room in a variety of ways. The Jasper Sofa and Pluto Fabric Sofa are the two options that will add modern appeal to your living room.

Add Table Storage 

If you are trying to find a home for the clutter in your living room, a coffee table that doubles as storage can provide the solution that you are looking for. The Transform Coffee Table features built-in drawers that can hide your important living room accessories to help keep the clutter down. A small side table, such as the Mirah Side Table, has internal shelving that can create a functional, yet space saving option for your room when placed near the couch.

Decorate Your Wall Space

If you don't have anything on the walls of your room, your room will look a little bare. Therefore, you should consider wall art or a clock to add a bit of character. Even a few floating shelves with some interesting objects can do the trick. Opt for neutral colours or just a bit of colour to add to the room without creating a distraction from the rest of the décor.

Add Mirrors

Mirrors can help a smaller space seem larger. In addition, they can also allow the natural light that already enters into your living room through the windows to be reflected over a greater area of the room. By choosing a mirror that features decorative elements, such as the Hellenic Mirror, you can use the mirror as a focal point for your room as well.

Add Life With Green Plants

Adding greenery can brighten up a small living room, especially if you use add it to hanging shelving. You can hang glass terrariums on the wall. You can also place potted plants on shelves to create the effect of a vertical garden. Plants like succulents, ferns, and air plants do well indoors and are easy to maintain. If you are an experienced gardener, small flowers and herb plants are also a good option.

Don't Forget the Final Touches

After you've chosen the major elements for your living, including the furniture, the next step is to focus on the details that will bring the room together. Adding a rug or cushions to your sofa will show how the different items of the room work together to create a complete look.
