Here’s How To Solve Your Small Living Room Problems

The one thing that many Singaporean homeowners have in common is the dilemma of a small living room. It tends to be quite challenging to design and takes a lot of creative thinking. So, if you’re suffering through the same crisis, here are a few tips and tricks to make the challenge easier for you. Let’s take a look:

1. Be as basic as possible

The thing about small spaces is that you can never furnish them lavishly. Instead, you have to be incredibly careful and selective about what you place and where you place it. Our advice here is to be as basic as possible. Living rooms seldom need anything more than a couch or a media wall, so that’s exactly what you need to make it functional. The rest is just modern-minimal details.

2. The thing about detailing

So, if you’re done with your basic layout, you’ll now have to select all the details that go with your furniture. This means coffee tables, area rugs, and other small knick-knacks. If you can find a transparent coffee table, then all the more props to you. It can make the design of your rug stand out a lot. If you want to go for a medium sized solid coffee table, then kick the rug – you don’t want the space to look too cluttered.

3. The media wall

Once again, there’s no need to go all out and ornate with your media wall. You can simply go for a compact console, a few floating shelves, or a simple painted wall in a bold, statement-worthy color. The LCD should be hung on the wall to save yourself the console space if you don’t want to have one.

4. A start and an end

For a small living room that’s floating in-between other spaces – mostly circulation areas – you need to have a definite beginning and an end. You can do that with the help of your accessories. For example, a tall floor lamp can mark the beginning point of the space while a cluster of planters of an accent chair can be the full-stop on the other end.

5. The overall ambiance

The end results matter a lot when you’re working with small spaces. This means that a careful blend of your color scheme and lighting deserves some thought. We recommend going for a lot of white to enhance the spatial value of your living room. The colored accent wall can balance it out with its vivacity!
