Try keeping things as simple as possible. This space is small, and the designer has had to marry three rooms together; kitchen, dining room, and living room. A single sofa, three-chair dining, and stylish white kitchen make up the entirety of this cozy small space. Luckily, this living room has high ceilings, which give it the illusion of a larger space. Long curtains also add the illusion of a longer, larger room.

  1. Embrace Light Colors

Light Colors

Dark colors are beautiful, but according to expert interior designers, they are not ideal for small rooms. Pale colors will make your room appear larger and brighter. White floors, window treatment, ceiling, and walls make this room feel cozy and spacious. Add a cream sofa and light blue chair to complete this setup. Go for throw pillows of different colors to add some cheer to the space.

  1. Opt For Corner Sofas

In a compact space, you want to make use of your corners. So instead of the traditional sofa design, opt for a more modern corner sofa design.

  1. Simple Storage Ideas

Simple Storage
