Furnishing a small living room - the right way to do it

Small living room furnishings - how to do it right - Livom

The living room is the heart of our home. Here we meet with family and friends, watch movies and series, pass the time with games and treat ourselves to some relaxation from everyday life.

If you have a large living room, you have a lot of leeway and freedom when it comes to furnishing it. However, furnishing a small living room is a bit trickier, because the smaller the room, the faster it looks cluttered.

We'll tell you what to look for when decorating if you want to get the most out of your small living room!

Use light colors

If you want your small living room to look bigger, you can choose light colors like white, cream, beige or light gray. Soft and restrained tones make the room look bigger and less oppressive. In combination with various elements made of wood, this creates a great interplay.

If you ever get tired of the sofaFarbe , you can easily order new covers in our store - even for individual modules. So you don't have to replace the whole sofa, but only the fabric covers.

About the fabric covers

Much light

Not only the furniture in bright colors can enlarge a living room, but also a lot of natural light. Large window fronts directly make a room look bigger and friendlier. So, if possible, natural daylight should dominate the lighting concept in the living room. So, make sure you don't have heavy curtains or large furniture in front of your window - these would actually constrict the room and make it look much darker.

Enlarge your space with mirrors

Mirrors - whether XL or small - can also work wonders and make your living room look bigger than it actually is. As soon as you place a mirror in a suitable place in your living room, the room and the daylight will be reflected in it, which ultimately enlarges the room visually. A mirror is therefore an absolute must-have in every small living room.


Modular sofas

What could be better for a small living room than a modular sofa? Thanks to the individual modules you can adapt your sofa exactly to the conditions in your living room. You are completely flexible with our modular sofas and can order as many modules, backrests and cushions as you like - just the way it fits into your living room.

Let's take our Donna modular sofa as an example: it consists of four modules that you can arrange any way you like.

You live alone and two or three modules are enough for you? No problem! Buy only the modules you need. You can always reorder when your household grows and your small sofa reaches its limits.

For example, you can arrange the sofa so that people sit on it opposite each other - ingenious, right? This composition is just perfect for days when you want to pursue different activities and still want to spend time together 😉.

You are also completely flexible when it comes to color choice: If you want, you can even buy each module in a different Farbe . If you don't like one Farbe anymore, you can easily order the covers online in another Farbe . So you have a lot of freedom with our modular sofas - that's why they are the perfect choice for every living room.

Use heights correctly

If you already do not have so much space in the length and width, you still have the height of your living room - so use it cleverly!

For example, you can put a large shelf with a lot of storage space or several smaller shelves on which you can deposit all sorts of things. High shelves or picture walls will directly make your room look higher and thus larger.

Furniture with clever storage spaces

Marie modular sofa with storage space

If you have too little storage space in the living room, you should definitely get furniture with built-in storage compartments. Today, for example, there are great sofas that have such built-in compartments. With our Marie sofa, for example, you can store everything you need for a relaxing evening on the sofa in the armrest. Whether snacks, pillows, the remote control or a good book: everything finds a place in this secret compartment.

Set color accents

Your interior doesn't always have to be tone-on-tone. You can also make a statement in your living room with eye-catching color accents, such as red. This way, you can set the scene perfectly even in small rooms.

Set to horizontal lines

When decorating a small living room, you should not only play with the height of the room, but also ensure clean lines horizontally. Clean lines help to make the living room look uncluttered and tidy. Draw horizontal lines with shelves, a small sideboard or with a row of pictures. This visually stretches the room and makes it look bigger.

Leave free spaces

For a small living room, there are many different tips and tricks that will make it look bigger. One thing you should definitely not do, though: Crowd your space with furniture and accessories. Not only should you be restrained with your furniture pieces, but also with the decor. So don't overload the space you have - instead, go for minimalism and create space to breathe.

Create a center

Let your sofa become the highlight of the living room and arrange your other pieces of furniture "around it", so to speak. In addition, make sure that the other pieces of furniture next to the sofa do not look too bulky, but form a harmonious interplay. If you put the sofa in the center of the room, and not directly against the wall, the room will look even bigger.

Small but OHO

See. Even a small living room can be really beautiful and inviting with the right decor. Take our tips to heart and get going.
