Do you love to renew the look of your living space every now and then? If so, you have to check your budget and space in addition to the durability of the available furniture of the space. If you have a tight budget and small space, you need just to remove clutter and arrange the main furniture pieces to provide the room a spacious look.
If you have a clean lined sectional sofa with a light color, you can place it at the largest corner of the room and arrange the table and a couple of stools around the sofa. If you just have a petite sofa or slimmed down loveseat, you can place it near the window and arrange the armchairs and stools around the sofa or loveseat to seat six people or more as per the available space.
The backless sofa at the center of your living space will be a perfect option at your open designed small space, as it can add a stylish look and serve as a daybed, a lounging chaise, and a comforting sofa. Instead, you can use an armless sofa with green plants on one or two sides to enhance the spacious look of your small living space. If your living space is tight and long, try to use a small-scale sofa or just a couple of armchairs with incorporated serving tray to make the best use of the place.
In your small living space, you may use the large walls to arrange the principle furniture pieces and place the sofa and seating area at the center of the room. For example, you can arrange the bookcase at one large wall and the fireplace and TV at the facing wall arranging the seating area at the center of your classic living space.
In both of your modern and classic living spaces, try to create a balance between your comfort and the slim design of the sofa, especially its legs. Actually, the slim sofa, even if it has wide and long cushions, can be the best choice of your small living space.
