Problem #5: Not Enough Light. It's particularly important in the living room, where we often spend quite a bit of time. However it's a tricky space to strike the right lighting balance, thanks to the many different functions the living room serves. Small homes are often lacking natural light because of two reasons: Builders know that windows are expensive, and they also know that they take up valuable wall space, and well, there's only so much of that in a small space already. Solutions: Don't take up too much valuable floor or table space with lamps. Choose recessed, wall-mounted, hanging or shelf-mounted lighting. Floor up-lighting is also a great way to enhance a small space. When decorating a small living room that doesn't have a lot of natural light, choosing light shades of flooring, furnishings, walls and decor can do a lot to brighten your space.
Similarly, by keeping wall hangings low the empty space at the top of the walls will help to make the ceiling look taller and therefore the room feels physically bigger or “airier”. Of course, you will also want to bear in mind where your windows are and work actively to not block them with furniture. Different shapes and sizes of living room all present their own challenges. Narrow living rooms and L-shaped living rooms can often feel tricky when structuring a furniture layout. In the layout diagrams above, each square room can be applied to different sizes and shapes of living room and act as more of a main furniture guide to the layout and not a conclusive layout that only works for small, square living rooms. But they should give you a basic idea of the simplest living room arrangements.
Furniture Ideas for Small Living Rooms and Multiple Doorways. For spaces with multiple doorways, draw an imaginary line that angles through the room from opening to opening, creating a straight trail between furniture pieces. This dynamic arrangement of furniture keeps the focal point in mind but also directs people through the space, which is also key for figuring out how to arrange furniture in a small living room. Blocking the corners of the room like this can be helpful when you have children's toys or hobby supplies you'd like to hide. Sectional Sofa Furniture Arrangements, When a sectional sofa is your primary seating, you might be tempted to push it into the corner of the room and call it a day. But this can feel claustrophobic, especially to those people seated on the deepest cushions. Pull it away from the wall to let light and air flow around it. Place a brightening lamp or slender console table at the back, and put any other seating in position to see people seated at both ends of the L. When used in a narrow living room layout, it can be an easy barrier to add a section function to the space: a toy room, a craft table, or a pool table.
