5 Tips for Small Space Living: Living Room

Check out these 5 tips for small space living: living rooms, including ideas and tips on decor, storage and organization.

1. Dressing your windows simply

So, to keep the room from looking closed in and dark, I ended up dressing the window simply with bamboo shades and no curtains.

2. Be choosy with what you buy for your small living room

Having a lot of things in a small room could also make it look small and cluttered, so I try to choose larger items rather than lots of little things to display.

3. Use double duty furniture

The cabinet that the tv sits on also houses my camera equipment, our cable box, wii, dvds, cds and lots of other stuff that I like to keep out of view.

4. Paint your walls a light color

Painting it a lighter color, BM Gray Owl at 50%, was the right move. It helped to brighten up our dark space.

5. Use mirrors to open up your small space

I have found that using mirrors in my small space definitely helps to open it up and adds extra light.

It's always a huge plus if you can position a mirror near or across from a window. The light will bounce around your room.
