Decorate Tip for Small Apartment - Living Room

Don't let your small living room pinch your style. No matter how small your space, it can still look stylish whether you own or rent. Discover the ​best small-space décor tricks for personalizing the most lived-in spot in your home.


Avoid a Matchy-Matchy, Boring Look

This living room feels grander than its actual size thanks to low-slung furniture. Give your space more texture and personality by incorporating mismatched furniture and decor from different eras. Like the contemporary sofa and vintage leather chairs in this room, different textured pieces can look just as seamless as a complete set.

Embrace Your White Walls

White walls can be dull, but then again they can create a calming mood. Consider embracing a white-on-white interior. Pairing your walls with equally pale furniture is an elegant and straightforward way to make any small space feel brighter and larger.

For character, add pops of colors and splashes of texture. Interior designer Mercedes Daczi personalized this white living room with a range of colorful and textural accents including houseplants and wicker furnishings.

Add Living Color

Nothing prettifies a living room like decorating with plants. Blooming perennials like daffodils or tulips add lovely color, while leafy beauties including ferns and spider plants bring interesting texture (plus they clean indoor air!). Don't like gardening? Try a few low-maintenance options from the succulent family and put them in cute DIY planters.

Transform That Boring Box-Shaped Space

If your living room is lacking architectural detail, it's easy to create an affordable and unique touch without undergoing a costly renovation. Show off your personal style by creating a feature wall like this one from Joe Human that transforms your room into an eye-catching focal point.

Find the Perfect Sofa for a Narrow Space

Glam It up With Gold Decor

Glamorizing a small living room isn't a problem if you watch the scale of your furniture. For instance, an overstuffed couch will make any small space feel minuscule. However, an apartment-size sofa that's also close to the ground (as shown) will have the opposite effect.

Keeping scale in mind is also important when adding the Midas touch. All of the gold décor shown in this small living room designed by Havenly work with the low-profile couch. And, because the transparent coffee table doesn't take up visual residency, it creates the illusion of more floor space.


Raise the Ceiling With Vertical Stripes

If your low ceiling is cramping your style, then take a good look at these walls in a home decorated by Sheer and Company. The subtle vertical stripes make the low ceiling in this compact living room seem higher.

Use a Modern Style

If you're looking to start decorating your space from scratch, the living room in this 600-square foot apartment decorated by Havenly reveals a simple formula for small space decorating.

First, stick with low-profile furniture in neutral colors. Leggy pieces like the coffee table create a sense of spaciousness because you can see more of the floor. For pops of color, add a houseplant or two and patterned rug. Next, fill that big blank space over your sofa with a statement-making print or oversized mirror. Need a floor lamp but don't have an inch of horizontal room to spare? Consider something wall-mounted.

Anchor the Living Room With Furniture

When it comes to decorating rooms of all sizes, an alpha object is what anchors a space. In this living room designed by IDF Studio, it's the plush pullout sofa which doubles as a guest bed. The nesting tables and upholstered storage ottomans also have dual purposes for entertaining and hosting.
