5 Ways To Decorate A Small Living Room And Create Space

When decorating a limited size living room, try to adjust everything I can to make it feel cramped and messy. Most living rooms have sofas or chairs, televisions, and maybe even small tables or backrests. Adding colored walls, photos, artwork, lights, curtains and pillows can begin to make the room look and feel smaller.

To help you arrange the best layout, buy the right type of furniture and create the illusion of a larger space, we compiled a list of the best ways to decorate a small living room. After you decide on the layout, color scheme, and furniture, be sure to personalize your space with some special pillows and unique artwork.
