Amazing Tricks to Modernize Your Small Living Room

  • Written by Chloe Taylor


Many people think that the kitchen is the heart of the home, but it’s the living room where most of the things happen. That’s where you relax after work, entertain your friends, spend quality time with your family, etc. In short, it’s a room that has the potential to leave a long-lasting impression on your guests and create positive memories for your family. With that in mind, you should do your best to keep it up to date, regardless of its size – and here are a few ways to do that.


Update your accessories

One of the easiest ways to modernize your small living room is by updating your textiles – pillows, and rugs. These accents are very often the first thing people will notice when they walk into your living room, and they are perfect for adding a bit more color and character to your living space. Even if you opt for monochrome accessories, you can still spice it up by choosing those with interesting patterns. Moreover, you can also play with textures and add an extra dimension to your living space. The best thing about throw pillows and rugs is that they come in so many different styles, colors, and shapes, you can easily find one that would upgrade your living room’s appearance.


Rearrange your furniture

 

What is great about this suggestion is that you already have everything you need. All that’s left for you to do is simply rearrange your furniture a bit, and you’d completely transform your living space. Just don’t forget to pay attention to the symmetry. For instance, if you have one large item on one side of the room, you should place an item of a similar size on the other side of the room. This way, you’d achieve the balance that you need in order to make your living room look modern and comfortable.


Use the vertical space

If your living room is a bit more on the small size, make the best of the space you have, including the vertical one. For example, you can install shelves and use them to showcase your book collection or bring the room to life by decorating the shelves with flowers. Speaking of vertical space, you should also consider mounting your TV on the wall. This is something you can often see in Australia, as Aussies are very environmentally friendly, so they are more likely to opt for smaller homes. Just make sure to hire professionals in TV installation from Adelaide, as mounting your TV on the wall is not something you want to try on your own.


Add greenery

 

Many people overlook the beauty of flowers and what they can do to your living space. However, you can never go wrong with adding a bit of greenery to your home, and plants will never go out of style. They can complement any design theme, and besides looking great, they can also freshen up the air inside your home. Plus, research has shown that plants can also help you de-stress, so there are definitely more than a few benefits of decorating your living room with flowers.


Make use of mirrors

Last but not least, one of the best ways to make your small living room appear larger and more spacious is to decorate it with mirrors. Mirrors are almost as versatile as the above-listed pillows and rugs – they also come in many different sizes, styles, and shapes. This means that you shouldn’t have any trouble choosing the right kind of mirrors. Additionally, if you hang them around your living room strategically, like the opposite of your windows, they would reflect the light throughout the entire room and make it appear brighter and larger.

 

Modernizing your small living room does not have to be a challenge. All you need to do is make use of what you have and spice things up with mirrors, colorful flowers, and interesting accessories. Even smaller changes can make a big difference. So consider the listed tips, try them, and your living room is bound to feel much more stylish.
