Treatments to windows should not be bulky and use huge pelmets, jambs or sills that take up space. Heavy furnishings for a window in a living room that has restricted space could have the effect of making the room look smaller. Using blinds with the thinnest possible slats would help to give a feeling of space.
Keep a sense of harmony. You can quite easily obtain a sense of balance by thinking carefully about the materials you are using. Think of textures – rough or smooth? Think about how the surfaces respond to light – are they shiny and glossy? Smooth and reflective materials can help a room feel larger but they need to be balanced against other materials such as natural woods and stone. Solid wood furniture adds a lot of character and style as well as bringing a natural feel to your room.

Splash Your Niche. You can add a dash of color and shade by painting a single wall with a bold color. This will change the central point of your room without the help of any expensive or lavish decorating item. Niches and alcoves are perfect places to paint. A splash of some bold color which may be a darker tone of the rest of the walls or be compliment to your general color theme of the living room, is the perfect way to bring a creative change in your living room.
Furniture in small living rooms should be minimal and multifunctional. Floor space occupied by the furniture needs to be restricted so that the living room area looks as if it has enough circulation area. This can be done easily by seeing that the supports for the furniture occupy very little space on the ground. Open spaces below furniture can actually help to create the feeling of openness and space which is so important for small rooms.
Clear Circulation Space. In any home plan whether it is an apartment block or an independent bungalow a person either enters an ”entrance lobby” or directly in the living room (if space is an issue). From this living room entrances open to all other spaces namely kitchen, bedrooms, staircases if any, patios, study rooms, family rooms etc.
