Take a careful look at the furnishings in your living room. Determine how you are using the space. Is the furniture in the room what you need? Remove what isn't working and make a list of what would make the space better. Look in other rooms in your home and repurpose items that might work better in the living room. Repurposing items you already have is a wonderful, inexpensive way to add a new look to a space. It can also help to limit the purchases you might need to make.
You can take the illusion you've set up a step further with a few ways to trick the eye. First of all, don't be tempted to give your small living room a dark paint job even if you think loveseats look best in pale upholstery. Keep to pale shades that will help make the room feel bigger. If you want to keep a pale color for your loveseats, there are a number of wall paint colors that can complement it without making the room feel smaller.
If your space is large enough, establish two focal points; combining two points of interest in the space will make it more inviting. This allows for the primary focal point and a secondary point of interest that typically includes a quiet time space to read, a desk or some other special area you want to create in the room. This area should be at the furthest distance from the hub of activity in the room.
