Tips for furnishing the living room

Under certain circumstances, it may make sense that the living room misappropriated is refined and with objects from other living spaces. Flowing transitions to the dining room, for example, are possible, as is a seamless separation from the hallway or balcony. In smaller rooms, however, which do not have the necessary open spaces, this maneuver seems rather meaningless.

We would like to show you how to furnish yourself in an appealing yet functional way.

The small living room

First of all Knowing the basic needs of the living room and deciding what furnishings to fit in.

  • Larger furniture, such as a three-person sofa, takes up a lot of space right from the start. Instead, two smaller sofas that can be moved at will and provide space for accessories and decorations. For example, a small side table can be slid between both sofas, leaving enough space for storage space. A manufacturer of high quality and flexibly usable furniture, especially in the field of sofas, is for example the DeLife GmbH. It carries stylish and at the same time cost-effective models in its range, which can act as trendy basic equipment.
  • Also make sure that there is always a contrast between the furniture's cover and the wall paint. Especially lighter covers, with slight embellishments in darker shades, promise a good look and look very compact in small spaces. This also increases the possibilities for decoration with cushions and blankets, for a sufficient protection against stains helps a protective film - it can be purchased cheaply in the trade and is not really visible, yet fulfills its purpose.
  • Often, the room is indeed in the width limited, but not in height. With shelves or drawers that you can easily attach yourself, this is an ideal place for storage space. Avoid metallic models, instead everything is in natural colors and made of wood and brings the right angle. To do this, for example, take several old drawers, these are painted in different colors or decorated with patterns, then arranged in the form of a staircase. They can also serve as wall lighting by installing small LEDs there and controlling them via a central switch. LEDs are very diverse and safe in terms of their color intensity, and also low in consumption.
  • Avoid folding tables when the space for conversion is generally too small. Instead, a small table could be equipped with wheels, or mounted on a roll container to position it flexibly. Highly recommended is the installation of a single tabletop on the wall, supported by a simple piece of wood and with a machined surface. If it's not in use, it can easily be removed and placed flat on the wall.

The typical mistakes

Despite all these design ideas, which can be implemented primarily at a low cost and relatively little time, we recommend a consistent style , Here it applies that only on the coloring can be tried to combine different furnishing objects with each other. If you re-work or colorize old pieces of furniture, the basic furniture, such as the table and chair, should be designed to be simple - they can still be adjusted or remodeled as you like.

Also, keep in mind that long walls are always covered with pictures or plants must be stocked. Otherwise, they look boring and uninspiring, if only because of the large open space. If working with wall tattoos, a pattern should be limited to a wall. The TV and music systems should be positioned freestanding, otherwise they run counter to the function of the living room cabinet. With carpets or alternatively flowers that are big enough, you can then create a kind of passage to the window or balcony.
