Small living rooms are tough. It’s hard to picture how furniture will fit, and often standard-size furniture is just too big. Here are some tips to help you furnish your small living room!
1. Make sure there’s at least 2.5 feet of space somewhere in the room to serve as the “walking space.” 3 feet is usually ideal, but you can get away with 2.5 feet in tight spaces.
2. Look for pieces with large interior seat measurements to get the maximum space for the size of the piece.
3. Avoid pieces with large arms. English roll and straight arms fit nicely into compact spaces. Larger roll arms tend to take up too much space and seem out of scale with the room itself.
4. Turn a larger loveseat into a sofa and use an ottoman instead of a coffee table to really maximize space without sacrificing comfort.
