A small living room can be expanded by taking one of the walls down. Get rid of the wall separating your living room and the kitchen, or your living room and the hall way. But remember, safety comes first. You can always resort to losing a wall to maximise your living space, as long as it won‘t harm the structural resistance of the building.
In recent years the traditional sofa design has undergone somewhat of a revolution. Designers are now seeing the humble sofa as something more than a comfy place to sit on an evening, or as a statement piece to show off in your home. It is now being classed, by some, as a work of art, whilst also being practical and comfy to sit on, as a sofa should be.
So, you can use the same trick to separate your living area from the kitchen. With a mix of brownish, grayish color on the wall, porcelain travertine tiles on the floor, a soft area rug, wood slat chairs, a stylish table lamp, and a couple of coffee tables at the middle can help you catching the vibe of this room. A fireplace with shifting planes is present in this room. Even if you do not have any such fireplace in your living room, you can decorate the walls with a few portraits complementing the brownish taupe color of the walls.
