By on May 8, 2017

A small space does not mean that a living room has to be small and cramped. You can make your living room look appealing and here’s how to make a big statement in a small livingroom. These steps are quite easy and can be done fast.

Streamline Clutter

One way you can make your living room stand out is by reducing the clutter. You can install built-in cabinets, open shelves, and furniture that has multi-purpose storage such as coffee tables with sliding drawers. You should also utilize vertical space. If you do have a small living room you should take advantage of vertical space. Buy furniture that does not take up much horizontal space but takes up a lot of vertical space, such as tall bookshelves.

Large Art Pieces

Large art pieces make bold statements and give the impression of sophistication. It also makes the walls and rooms appear more expensive. Art pieces also give a living room more color and appear “brighter”. Go for art that has bright colors and not ones that appear gloomy or dark in nature.


Mirrors can maximize room space if they are placed strategically. Mirrors reflect light and make spaces appear bigger. Place a large mirror opposite the living room window and the room will instantly become brighter. They can also be helpful when needing to look at yourself and see if your hair is untidy.


Colors can create the illusion of a bigger living room. Choose bright and light colors for the walls to give an appealing look. Match the ceiling with a darker shade of the colors of the rest of the room. For example, if the walls are colored light blue, color the ceiling with a darker shade of blue such as navy blue.

Front Door

Select a signature door that brings style to your living room. Doors are part of what makes a living room look great and stylish. Do not buy a plain old door that has its painting worn. Instead, buy a door or paint new with a color that matches the rest of the room. There is no point in making the room look great when the door, which is the entrance to the room, looks worn and old.


Lighting is very important. Good lighting can make a room look bright and lively whilst bad lighting can make it look dark and gloomy. Use lamps to distribute light and make it look romantic and nightly. Multiple forms of light will reduce the chances of dark areas.

The above methods will transform your living room and make it have a big statement. If you take all of the above steps and implement them, your living room will stand out and leave an impact on every eye that sees it.
