The fact that we have a few square meters does not mean that our mini living room has to be boring and without personality. What’s more, getting the most out of it is possible if we take into account some key things to introduce trends. To begin with, a white base is essential, in this way we visually expand our living room and fill it with light. Another way to create a more spacious feeling is to place a mirror on the wall in front of the window, the change will be amazing.
To add depth and character to our mini space, you can choose to put vibrant colored wallpaper on the wall behind the sofa.
WHITE: NEVER GOES OUT OF FASHION
Especially if you combine it with wood or natural fiber furniture, which gives it that warm and welcoming touch that it just doesn’t have.
FINISHES IN CHOCOLATE COLOR
They are worn, above all, in the upholstery of the chairs, leather or leatherette, and the finish of the coffee and dining table. For clarity, pair them with tan textiles and touches of vibrant hues.
LEAVE OPEN SPACES, LOFT-TYPE
Eliminate the separations that are not strictly necessary and separate the environments with partitions, screens, sliding doors … you will create a greater sense of space.
PLACE A SINGLE PIECE
Although most of your furniture should have simple lines, put a special piece that acquires all the prominence to make your mini living room more welcoming.
STRAIGHT AND SIMPLE LINES ARE IMPOSED
The arms of the sofas and armchairs leave the curvatures; the chairs do not have artifice in their structure but are reduced to the minimum expression … The furniture tries to occupy the minimum visual and physical space, so the living room seems larger.
PUT TWO TWIN TABLES
Instead of just one; you will achieve much more versatile and functional spaces because they can be relocated and adapted more easily. Play with them and have fun!
A classic that is established as the ideal solution in mini spaces or if versatility is needed.
PLACE A CORNER SOFA AND WIN MORE SEATS
It is a successful solution to make profitable a space that is usually little used as a corner. To be up-to-date, make it modular and incorporate a chaise-longue. And if there is not enough space for it, an armchair free of straight and simple lines may be the ideal complement.
In the window, a roller blind will allow you to attach the sofa, a shelf … For television, you don’t need a specific piece of furniture, a low shelf is enough. The sinuous shapes of these shelves, without a back and without some sides, make them appear much lighter.
SLOPE INCLINED CEILINGS?
As they cannot be ignored, turn them into one more decorative element by covering them with wooden slats; in white, you will be able to visually zoom out.
WHAT ABOUT THE COATINGS?
Laminates, vinyl, and ceramics that imitate wood or marble triumph when it comes to covering floors due to their price and functionality.
LET THERE BE LIGHT!
Try that natural light reaches all possible spaces in your house. As in this example, where the bedroom communicates with the living room. The light will flow more easily through the rooms and optically enlarge the space.
COMBINE VARIOUS MATERIALS
Without a doubt, glass, metal, and methacrylate are essential to achieve a current environment. In addition, they are perfect in mini spaces due to their lightness. Add details in a paper – hanging lamps are a trend – and colored textiles (rugs, cushions …) and success will be assured. Japanese panels filter the light and as they do not have folds they do not weigh.
RUSTIC IS BACK WITH STRENGTH
Shutters, wooden lintels, and masonry structures like this corner sofa. Add a fiber rug and a waxed table and you will feel at your grandmother’s house. To update it, add a colorful upholstery.
