Living rooms used to be ridiculously small, and in many areas of Europe and especially Japan, they still are. Yet just because you have a small living room doesn’t actually mean it shouldn’t be comfortable and functional. Getting the most out of your not-so-large living space is what we will be looking at in this article.

The first thing you should think about is how to actually make sure furniture stays out of the way, but still remains functional enough so that you can eat, sleep, and rest there. Something that has become a permanent part of our living room scenery is the infamous television set. We would suggest purchasing a projector and putting it up on the ceiling if possible. At the very least, a flat-screen television with a wall unit attachment should take up the least amount of space. Some people prefer to just get rid of the television anyway, but do try to keep the amount of furniture to a minimum so that it doesn’t dominate your small living room design.

Having high ceilings can really help, especially when constructing a mezzanine floor. Not only is it very cool to have, but also extremely functional. You can use it for as an extra bedroom, work desk, or simply an extension of your living room where you’ll get to watch projected movies. It is sort of like a tree house, except that it’s inside and it’s for adults.

Furniture should not take up too much space in your living room, and you should ensure it is retractable or there’s a way to hide it. This means you will have to have some of the pieces custom-made, or head over to a store like Ikea for help and ideas. At the end of the day, small really can be beautiful, and you can make your living room out to be a great place. How much space do we actually need anyway?
