Simple Tricks For Sprucing Up Small Singaporean Living Rooms

Simple Tricks For Sprucing Up Small Singaporean Living Rooms

Singaporeans have learned to make the best of small spaces, but sometimes, despite our best efforts, the space might fall short of its true potential. So, as the hub of your house, we’ve compiled some simple tricks you can use to spruce up your small living room. Here they are:

 

1. Using an elevated platform

Your small living room would look even more charming and elegant if it’s designed one step above the rest of the space. This will not only determine a beautiful boundary between the living room’s open floor plan and the rest of the home, but also provide you a great opportunity to spruce up this space with some unique identifying design elements like recessed cove lights, a statement furniture accessory, etc.

 

2. In-built barriers

Your living room will not feel as small as it actually is if you create a semi-permanent furniture-oriented boundary between the back of the sofa and the start of the next zone. Usually, homeowners tend to use oversized buffets, sideboards, area rugs, and even chaise lounges for this effect. But it looks the best when there is an in-built credenza piece that acts as a separator.

 

3. Literal loopholes

You can design cut-outs or other transparent or semi-transparent partitions between your small living room and the rest of the house. This technique can create a visual connection between spaces and make it feel like they’re one huge part of the whole.

 

4. Choosing low-height furniture

By choosing low-height furniture for your living room, you can emulate a sense of inherent spaciousness. You need to be careful about matching the sofa profile with the media console and other accessories that you choose to furnish in such living areas. It’s best if you choose the furniture to be the same colour in order to propagate the feeling of low-height equivalence, while the walls, ceiling, and floor are lighter in finish to give the illusion of spaciousness.

 

5. Choose smaller furniture

Lastly, you can simply choose smaller furniture to make the room feel scaled-up and well-proportioned. For example, even simply going for a smaller sofa can make a world of difference when you’re trying to spruce up a small living room. Add in a tiny coffee table and a media console that is flush mounted on the wall, and you’ll automatically feel your space getting breezier.
