Apartments do not usually have big spaces. That is why they should be designed appropriately in order for the residents to have enough room for all their belongings and extra space to move around.
For an apartment living room, one of the most important thing to consider is where to put the furniture pieces – or how many pieces you should actually have. For a single-room apartment, a sofa-bed is one of the most important furniture.This allows you to have a couch for the day and a bed for the night.
If you have a separate room for sleeping, you can be a little more flexible with decorating your apartment living room. Aside from the couch, you can add a few other essentials like a side or coffee table, a book case, ottomans and side chairs.
Once you are choosing the pieces that would make up your living room, you need to decide how you actually want to use the room for. If it’s going to be mostly for personal relaxation and watching TV or are you reserving it for entertaining guests? Your decision will be the basis on how you can effectively place your furniture pieces together.
Lastly, a small room can be made to look more roomy with light colored paint or wallpaper. Dark colors will only make the room look cramped.
