Space saving ideas for your living room
Dual purpose coffee table
Ottomans and storage tables function as extra space, and can be filled to the brim with goodies such as DVDs, books, and anything else you want to hide but also have quick access to.
Extendable dining table
If you have a small family, but want to be able to have guests for dinner, a dining set with an extendable table is ideal. The Ingatorp Extendable Dining Table by IKEA in black or white can seat 6 people when adjusted. Matching chairs are available.
Instead of using table or floor lamps which can take up much needed space, try wall lights to bring soft illumination. Mirrors are also a great way to add light to your living room.
Find some quirky shelving to house decorative items. These innovative Hexagon Mirror Shelves from Not On The High Street are classy, practical, and double up as mirrors.
Low-level sofas and armchairs give an illusion of more space and higher ceilings. They’re also unusual and will make your guests feel cosy. Try a corner sofa for extra comfort points.
Rather than spacing out family photos across a wall, group them together in a collage multi aperture frame, or opt for a photo album, like this French Style Wooden Photo Box from Amazon.
