Newer homes seem to have smaller living rooms in favor of larger family rooms. Older homes may have smaller living rooms because they have a smaller overall square footage. Whether your home is new or old, you might have a less than large living room to decorate. Smaller doesn’t have to mean you can’t create a beautiful living room. Smaller might mean more cozy, but this doesn’t always have to be a bad thing.
This living room does not have a large footprint yet manages to have all the bells and whistles you would want in a living room. There is plenty of seating on the sofa, loveseat and chair, with additional seating possible on the ottoman style coffee table. There is an array of lighting provided by a floor lamp, table lamp and, though not pictured, overhead lighting. Hardwood floors and an area rug make up the flooring. A fireplace is a beautiful architectural focal point. Despite its small footprint, the room is charming and well decorated.
Creating a cozy layout means creating a tighter seating arrangement. Floating the sofa in the middle of the room and placing the loveseat perpendicular to it, creates an L-shape seating area that faces the fireplace. The arm chair in the corner could be brought forward for better conversation, but makes a nice place to read next to the floor lamp.
The seating arrangement doesn’t feel too tight or constricted because there is flow around the furniture. Creating flow allows the room to feel bigger than it is.
