When you decorate a small living room remember these ideas:
To reduce the problem of space, especially when there is a large gathering of guests, you can use a sofa cum bed that serves the two purposes, as a sofa and the other as a bed. If there is a less space, you can use folding furniture and furniture on wheels that can be withdrawn only when it is needed.
To feel that the living room space is bigger, put your furniture away from the doors to help to attract the guests’ attention which makes the room look larger.
A good amount of clutter in the living room make the place feel smaller so avoid decorating items that mess up the living room.
Your best choice when you decorate a small interior area is small or medium sized furniture. Instead of having a large sofa, consider using a loveseat, this gives the illusion of a larger space. Use a large mirror or piece of art may make the room feel greater in size.
If you have the ideas that you have to keep your smaller rooms white, then you are mistaken. You can get color while still making the living room seem bigger by a combination of colors that have the same intensity or stick to a monochromatic colors. So you should plan to pick all pale blue or bright colors in yellow, red and orange.
This will add interest and depth to your small room if you paint the opposite wall with an intense and deep color. If you don’t like gray, you could try the cool colors such as purples and blues to get the same interior effect.
