Helpful Design Ideas for Small Living Rooms

The living room is the heart of your home. Even if you live in a small apartment or a studio, it is still important to have a space outside of your bedroom where you can lounge, unwind, and entertain visiting guests. If you think your home is too small to fit living room furniture, then perhaps it is time to reexamine your space. With carefully selected living room furniture pieces and a few smart design choices, you can create a cozy living room in virtually any size home!

Be a Smart Sofa Shopper

When designing your living room, consider options beyond a traditional three-seat sofa. While you want to make sure to provide seating that can accommodate multiple people, realize that there are numerous options at your disposal. Instead of a traditional living room sofa, consider a loveseat or a chaise sofa paired with a set of small accent chairs. Believe it or not, a sectional sofa may even work in some small spaces, since its distinctive design will hug the corners of the room.

Consider a Living Room Ottoman

An ottoman is a great addition to any small living room because it can serve a variety of functions. So much more than just a footstool, a living room ottoman can also be used for extra seating or as a unique coffee table alternative. Our furniture store even sells ottomans with built-in storage, which can be used to store remotes and other electronic devices that might otherwise create clutter in your living room.

Choose Living Room Furniture with Storage

Speaking of storage—that is one thing you can never have enough of in a small living room. When space is at a minimum, it is important to keep things as tidy and organized as possible. In addition to storage ottomans, we also sell living room benches with hidden storage and a variety of occasional tables. Our occasional tables come with roomy shelves and drawers that can be used to store books and magazines, or even display home accents.
