Nowadays, the minimalist house trend makes only a small living room in every modern house. People would prefer to meet their friends and colleagues outside their homes, such as at the malls and office buildings while having relatives in their home living rooms. Below are several minimalist living room decoration ideas that you can apply to make it very cozy. So, little space is no problemo!
1. Put a large window on your living room’s wall
Not only giving the large-space impression to a small living room, but a large window may also provide the best quality of lighting and air if it is put on the east or south side of your living room.
2. Paint your living room walls white plus texture
White walls can make your small living room look more spacious and give relaxation feeling. This is important as a living room is expected to be a place where you and your family gather and relax after a hard, tiring day. If you think plain white is too boring, add some texture to your painted walls. As an alternative color, you can also paint light gray on your walls.
3. Use multi functional furniture
The principle of a minimalist home is to use minimalist furniture that is used in accordance with its function so that your living room won’t be too full. It would be much better if you can have multi functional furniture such as a coffee table with several drawers for storage.
4. Accentuate your white painted walls with dark features
A little bit of dark color can add some theatrical ambiance to your living room. A dark gray sofa with a matching curtain will bring “drama” and lessen the boredom.
5. Highlight your walls with houseplants
Tiny bright greenery will be a good pairing with your white walls. A small houseplant on a pot like baby toes is good for a living room with a small window as it doesn’t need direct sunlight. Meanwhile, air plant and aloe vera need full sun, so they should be placed on a shelf or table nearby a large window.
Last but not least, make the living room the heart of your home. Provide a comfortable carpet or rug, a sturdy table, a cozy sofa, and cushions so the whole family can gather and relax together in the room. Don’t forget board games and a TV set for entertainment.
