8. Define the space

Use furniture to divide up spaces in the home, maintaining an open plan flow that makes the home feel bigger. Remember that walls constrict spaces.

9. One sofa and two armchairs

A simple two-seater armchair and two wooden chairs are enough to define a beautiful room.

10. With a wooden wall

A wall lined with wood can be the defining element in a small room, making it feel much more cosy, modern and spacious despite its compact size.

11. Neutral tones

Another excellent way to design a small room is to use grey and neutral tones, giving the feeling of space.

12. Carpets

Carpets are very important in small rooms and can make a space feel that much bigger, as well as that much more comfortable.

13. Total whiteness

Using white helps to create a more comfortable and larger-looking environment.

14. Natural lighting

It's also important to make the most of natural light in the house, making a home feel that much lighter and brighter.

15. In dark tones

Darker tones can bring an elegant and refined finish to a living space.

16. Total clarity

A well-lit space with accents of colour here and then can be very charming and appealing. You won't even notice the size!

17. Multi-purpose space

Another way to make the most of the available space is to ensure it is multi-functional. Double up the living room as a TV room and study, for example.

18. With delicate colours

One way to give more charm to a small room is to accentuate it with some delicate touches of colour. Here we can see how pink accents add subtle personality and charm.

19. Repetition of elements

You can repeat some decorative elements in a small room. Here we can see how the same sofa and cushions have been used. This creates a very symmetrical and spacious design.

20. Simple and modern

Functional wooden furniture, a shelf, a chest of drawers and an entertainment centre, along with natural light, is all you need for a simple living room.

21. Sharing space

If you have a small home, you can integrate living areas to create a more spacious environment.

22. Separate environments

A small low wall can separate spaces in the home, without constricting them. This makes the home feel spacious.

23. Total elegance

Dark and black tones, used in a white space, can create a very elegant and modern final result. Don't you love this minimalist design?
