Avoid Floor Lamps
Lighting is an important aspect of your home, however, the wrong kind of lighting could actually be costing you valuable floor space in your living room. Floor lamps are a great way to brighten up your room, but they could be taking up some of your much-needed floor space. Unfortunately, you can’t place a table or a chair in the same space as a floor lamp, not to mention, the shade of the lamp can easily get in the way if not placed properly. If you’re looking for a way to maximize the amount of space that you have in your living room, you may want to consider sticking to pendant lighting or flush overhead lights to keep your floor reserved for more important furniture.
Find Furniture That Fits the Space
Clearing away clutter is especially important if your living room is on the smaller side. In addition to investing in furniture that also doubles as a storage space, an important thing to consider is buying home furnishings that fit your space. The last thing you want to do is buy a chair or a couch that you love, only to realize that it takes up more space in your living room than you would like. The first thing you need to do is take measurements of your space so that you know how much room you actually have for your furniture. The next thing you need to do is look for furniture that you can adapt to fit your space more easily. Sectional sofas are a perfect example of accommodating the space. Their design allows you to bend and adjust them to fit in tight spaces.
