Many small living room ideas revolve around tricking the eye into making the area appear more spacious. Such strategies can transform an area that feels cramped and claustrophobic into one that feels cozy and aesthetically pleasing. Decorate in a way that maximizes light and space, and pay attention to how you use color, scale and weight. It can make quite a difference.
In this example Jeffers Design Group created a large, formal seating area and supplemented it with a small, informal grouping designed around a central ottoman. That way just two people can sit in this room without feeling swallowed up by the space. The low club chairs prevent the rear space from feeling cut off from the rest of the room.
This illustration shows several pieces of furniture commonly found in a living room. Your requirements will vary, but the principles are the same. You want the room to flow around the furniture for circulation and also have clear paths to the seating areas and exit points. Circulation paths need 30 to 36 in. (77 to 91 cm) of clear width. You can place coffee or cocktail tables as close as 12 in. (30 cm) from the edge of the seating. Other furnishings might need at least 24 in. (61 cm) between pieces for people to easily move about. Another important consideration is the conversation arc. Place furniture so that people can easily hear one another when seated. Eight feet (244 cm) is ideal; larger rooms may need to be broken into seating groups.
Wood cornices are one of the most classic window treatment ideas, but they are often overlooked as an option in contemporary homes because of their traditional nature. Used alone, however, cornices can create a sleek, modern look. Though they can be paired with curtains, stained or painted, wood boxes are perfect for the kitchen and bath, where fabric can succumb to water damage. These are best built by a skilled carpenter for a custom fit, so they can be expensive if you aren’t handy. Cornices hide curtain hardware and blend well with luxurious detailing, like crown molding, to give your home a gracious, regal look.
