You may have dreams of what you want your place to look like, but because of the size you know it’s not possible. A HomeGoods survey found 14% of respondents said their furnishings make them feel gloomy and stressed, which makes a lot of sense especially if you’re stuck in a modest home.
Even though you probably think you can’t fit a lot in your living space, there are actually some pieces that will fit perfectly and even make your space feel a little bit bigger, too. Let’s take a look at a few of them.
If you can drill anything into the walls of your apartment, you might want to consider a swing-arm lamp. A swing-arm lamp is great because it doesn’t take up any floor space or table space, as it’s something you install right on your wall. These lamps are the perfect statement home decor piece if you’re yearning for a conversation starter. They’re easy to move around and will allow you to fill the excess space with other things like coffee tables or side tables. If you’re feeling really creative you can fill the space that would normally be occupied by a lamp with a bean bag chair and place the lighting right over it for a cute little reading corner.
You probably think a sofa is one of the worst ideas for your small space. However, choosing a sectional sofa is a great way to utilize the space and will typically be a perfect fit. Sectionals are able to fit in corners and other spaces and give you the maximum amount of seating potential for your room. If you were to buy a regular sofa, only a few people would be able to fit on it. With these types of living room sets, you are providing seating for six or seven people, all while fitting in one small space.
Clear Coffee Tables (Well, Anything Clear for that Matter)
If you like the idea of having a coffee table but don’t like how bulky they can be, consider picking up a clear coffee table. A clear coffee table is typically made out of glass or acrylic and can make it look like nothing is there. if you don’t like the idea of a coffee table, you can even find clear chairs and other pieces of furniture for your room that will “disappear” into space. It won’t look as cluttered, giving your tiny room a spacious feel.
You may think utilizing home decor and living in a small place is difficult, but it doesn’t have to be. Trying to fit your entire life into a small space is as easy as taking the steps listed above..
