Small Living Room Ideas to Make the Most of Your Space


The most important thing to do in any small space is to start with a plan. Use a room planner to play around with floor plans. You’ll want to leave the proper amount of space between furniture pieces, and pay careful attention to pathways from room to room. Here are two helpful resources:


Some rooms (especially small spaces) have multiple focal points which can feel confusing when you’re trying to come up with a floor plan. If you have a small space that is used for both entertaining and TV watching, you’ll probably have an even harder time figuring how to have chairs face the TV but also seat lots of people. In those cases, we highly recommend at least one or even a pair of swivel chairs. 



Swivel chairs are the unsung hero of the room with two focal points. If you’re entertaining and the TV is off, the chairs can face your other seating options. If you’ve got a big crowd to watch a game, they can spin around and face the television. Swivel chairs are all about flexibility so they work well in small living rooms.


If you’ve got a tight squeeze but you’re trying to work as much seating into a room as possible, consider adding two slipper chairs. They’re great because they don’t have arms. It may seem inconsequential, but a chair arm can be anywhere from 3-6 inches. Multiply that by two arms per chair and two chairs, and you’ll be saving your room 12-24 inches! That can make a huge difference in a small living room.

Another advantage is that slipper chairs are often petite and easy to move around, so they lend themselves to entertaining. They’re easy to pull up to your seating area when guests are over but can be placed out of the way for day-to-day flow.

It’s important to have a variety of seating options when you’re entertaining. Not every seat needs to be a big, comfy armchair. Have a few perches for people to pull up as your crowd grows.
Here’s a small living room idea — tuck an ottoman, stool, or pouf under your console or side table. You can pull it out when guests arrive, but it tucks away for everyday living.
