Plants are a wonderful way to add depth to a small living room. Lush greenery softens corners and fools the eye into thinking there is more to the room than there really is. Plants are especially effective in corners and beside or behind chairs and sofas. If you can keep the furniture from contrasting, then your room will look just fine. You can always break rules when it comes to decorating small spaces because you don’t have as much area to work with, so it generally is not as noticeable.
Furniture must be made of a material that suits the use. Some materials are harder and more durable, like wood and certain upholstered fabrics, and others are more delicate. A lacquered table has a luxurious look but won’t stand up to family dinners over time without a lot of maintenance. In this case, hardwood or laminate is the best option. Something similar happens with fabrics: a faux leather chair is suitable for heavy use and easy to clean, while chenille is always delicate and easier to stain.
Keep in mind that every piece of furniture you like isn’t necessarily the right fit for your home. Keep function, durability, necessity, and aesthetics in mind when shopping. Of course, the most important thing is that you enjoy your furniture, but balance affinity with objectivity and look at the space, measure your room and furniture pieces, and evaluate what you already have before you throw everything out. By keeping these things in mind, you can easily create a great-looking space that complements your lifestyle.
