Make the most out of your space! With many of us unable to afford a new home it’s a good idea to make yourself more than comfortable with what you already have and that may mean creating a small lounge appear bigger than it actually is…
Here are three great ideas on how to make the most out of your small living room.
LOTS OF NATURAL LIGHTING

Open up your space by bringing in a lot of natural light into the room. The lighter the lounge is the bigger it would look, making it appear bigger, lighter and brighter – a perfect family living room area.
LINES, STRIPES AND VERTICAL LIVING

Trick your eyes into seeing a bigger space by using striped carpet or vinyl. In the same way that vertical lines can make you look taller, they can affect the look of a room too. Be sure to experiment with the width of the stripes too as this can affect the final finish too!
THE ALL WHITE CHIC

Use white furniture and white walls to create a seamless, chic interior that’s also airy. As you and your guests wouldn’t be able to see the edges of the room, it’ll give it a continuous look and make the lounge appear larger than it actually is. Why not add mirrors as well to create the illusion of even more space?
