Apply mirrors and wallpaper.
A small living room, especially if it’s short on windows, can feel a bit boxed in.
Create a focal point, boost light and add depth all at once by papering a wall and hanging a mirror on top.
If you can position the mirror across from a window, all the better — the mirror will reflect the view outside, giving the impression of an extra window.
Use hidden storage.
Pick furniture with built-in storage to limit clutter.
A trunk or storage ottoman as a coffee table works well.
Along the perimeter of the room, try a small chest of drawers or a small credenza instead of a console table to boost storage options.
Select small-scale furniture.
There is more to living room furniture than full-size sofas and bulky armchairs.
Antiques shops are a great place to look for small-scale furniture, because the average room size was typically quite small until the last half century or so.
Look for small settees, love seats and chairs that can work for your space.
Reduce the sofa size.
In some spaces a full-size sofa just won’t do.
Try a slimmed-down love seat or a petite sofa on for size instead.
Choose one with clean lines and exposed legs for the airiest look.
Like wallpaper and mirrors, 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.
Fill living room corner properly.
It’s a bit counterintuitive, but if you have a small corner living room space, sometimes going with the largest piece of furniture possible can actually make it feel bigger.
Why? A generously sized sectional (like the one shown here) is comfortable and able to seat tons of people — but because it reads as just one piece, it helps the room feel uncluttered.
A modern sectional with clean, straight lines works better in a small space than an overstuffed version.
