Learn How To Choose The Right Furniture For Your Small Living Room

Home & Garden Blog

Living in a home that has a small living room can make it difficult to furnish the room. This is because there is a limited amount of space available, but you want to be sure that you are able to have the basic pieces in the room. Below is a guide for how to make the most of the space you have available so you can be cozy and comfortable in your small living room.

Mount Your Television

In a small living room, you want to be sure that you do not waste any of the space that is available to you. A television stand or entertainment center can often take up a lot of room in the small space that you have available to you. Mount your television on the wall to limit the amount of space that is occupied by the television. Shelving can be mounted near the television to keep media devices nearby for easy use.

Choose Blocked Sofas

There are many sofas that are oversized or that have curled armrests. When the armrests curl out, it makes the sofa take up more space than it would if the armrests were blocked. Measure the room before you go shopping and determine which wall you would like to have the sofa on. This allows you to measure the sofa to ensure that it will fit in the space that you have available.

Choose Multipurpose Pieces

Make the most of the space you have available by choosing pieces that serve dual purposes. There are large ottomans that have lids that can be flipped over so that the ottoman can turn into a coffee table. Also, the ottoman can be used as storage for your magazines or blankets. Choosing pieces that can serve more than one purpose allows you to rest assured that you always get the pieces you need to have a comfortable living room, without having to make the space feel cramped.

You may need to change the layout of your furniture a few times to determine the best layout for your furniture. There are many times that you may not realize one layout is better than another is until you try it. When choosing furniture for your living room, remember that a sofa, a coffee table, and perhaps a side table are more than likely all that you need to create a comfortable and cozy living room in your home.
