Coming up with the right seating plan for a small living room can be difficult, especially one that doesn't have much room for the couches, chairs and other seating solutions that can make it comfortable for a large group to spend time in the space. Smaller living rooms can really only hold one small sofa and maybe a chair, which can make entertaining nearly impossible.
But if you get creative with your decor solutions, you can make sure that everyone who visits your house is comfortable with just a few items. Sitting on the floor is uncomfortable, but you can make it much more stylish by providing floor cushions for your guests in the form of colorful throw pillows. That way, if you have more people than you do seating, simply encourage them to take a seat on one of the cushions and the problem will be solved.
Best of all, when you don't need them, your floor cushions can become an interesting part of your decor. Instead of laying them out on the floor, stack them up and tuck them in the corner or under an end table. That way, your extra seating solutions can serve as decor items.
Moving into a small space is all about coming up with working solutions. You can recover old throw pillows with new bright fabrics from Bazaar Home Decorating, your local Milwaukee fabric store. Our friendly staff specializes in finding you the perfect solutions for your house, and has plenty of design ideas to conserve space.
