Living Room. Saturday , October 14th , 2017 - 17:40:11 PM
Get creative with space, before decorating or furnishing an awkwardly shaped living room consider how best to optimise the space available. Think about an L-shaped sofa in a tight eaves space teamed with trunks that can function as coffee tables as well as handy storage. Keep a dark room white to make the most of what little light there is.
Tired of a worn-out cream scheme, the owners decided it was time to introduce a more lively and contemporary look to their living room. When my husband and I bought this house, it needed a lot of work, but the living room was one of the first areas to be tackled,’ says the owner. ‘We didn’t have a huge budget, but once we’d stripped the wallpaper and had the walls replastered and painted, it looked much better.
Show off interesting objects, just because your living room is verging on the small side, it doesn’t mean that you should hide away all your favourite belongings in storage. If you have objects that are worthy of showing off then display them along an open shelf, above the sofa. This idea is great for when floor space is at a premium.
