Its interesting to try new things. Sometimes traditional ideas about living room decor are not the best solution for a small space. Instead of using blinds for window treatments, use long, flowing drapes because they draw attention to vertical space, thus expanding the area of the room.
One of the most popular small living room ideas is the use of neutral colors on walls, floor, ceiling and furniture upholstery. A palette of off whites or beiges will expand the space by appearing to push back the walls. Soft hues also tend to illuminate a room by reflecting light. In addition to enlarging an area, a neutral palette imparts instant sophistication and creates a calming environment.
Painting the floors can open up a world of design possibilities, especially if you choose to paint or stain a concrete floor. For modern simplicity, a bold, solid color or bright white works well. You can also imitate the look of traditional checkerboard tile with two contrasting paint colors. Concrete floors look especially sleek with an ultra-shiny coat of epoxy that reflects light back into the space. Concrete can also be stained for a more subtle finish that imitates the look of quarried stone or marble for a more natural look.
