5 Ways to Decorate Small Living Rooms

Feb 25, 2016

Metropolitan cities flaunt the beauty of exposure to bright new things & a brand new lifestyle but leave us exposed to smaller living spaces. We understand the problem of lack of space in such cities - which is why we're here to help decorate that small cozy space you'd love going back to after your hectic routine!

  • Choose a Light Palette: Lighter hues reflect more light, which automatically create an illusion of having a bigger room. DG recommends pastel coloured walls and furniture, with designed wallpapers to add a hint of fun!

DG recommends using the look of the living room for your patio. For instance, use the same floor tiles, similar wall art, similar coloured furniture, etc.

  • Think Multipurpose: There will always be a few things that you cannot imagine your room without. Lack of space shouldn�t let you hold yourself back from your dream room! DG recommends throwing in some multifunctional furnishings that usually take up ample area of a room. For instance, use one table which fits as a coffee, breakfast, dining as well as work table; a lounger which functions as a chair but also gives the comfort of a sofa (or even a cozy bed, perhaps?) This will definitely give you the liberty to place showpieces, plants, wall art, etc. without making the room seem congested.

  • Get Creative with Storage: Implement an idea from Harry Potter � the boy who lived under the stairs? Maybe not literally, but use the space under your staircase for storage! This applies for spaces under not only stairs, but also a TV set, tables, etc. DG recommends using creative structures for shelves to add an element of fun to an otherwise boring cabinet.

  • Well-worked Window Accessories: These are very essential for small rooms as they immediately catch the eye when you enter. DG recommends selecting curtains depending on the height of the room � use Venetian blinds in case of short ceilings, whereas ceiling-to-floor curtains for tall ceilings, as these will instantly create an impression of entering a bigger space than it actually is!
