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.
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.
Plastic considerations (aesthetics) are related to the integrated space design. For example, if the furniture will be straight or curved, if space requires tall or low furniture, etc. Finally, as mentioned above, space determines the size of the furniture and also the distribution of the same. The different pieces of furniture have to always be related to space before buying them. Check to see if their sizes are appropriate for the overall design – for example, a sectional may not be the best choice for a small living area. Also, the physical space of the room and the ways furniture can be placed need to be considered, such as the size of a window or proximity to a door.
