For many people decorating a small living room is a very difficult task, but currently the apartments have fewer and fewer spaces and comes with the intention of integrating with the dining room. But with some tips it is possible to have a pleasant environment with practical and essential furniture pro day to day.
To get started it is crucial to have the space measurements in hand to start planning your room. After that, you have to keep in mind that due to its size it is essential that you have few furniture in place. So if you want to decorate use shelves or niches on the walls with dye in light tones for feeling of amplitude. With the integrated rooms, be careful with the dining tables, ideally it is of a size that allows circulation around it.
The clear sofa with narrow arms harmonizes in the visual, and if there is no space for coffee table use low benches to support decorative objects (magazines, glasses, vases etc.). Also remember that the floor-to-ceiling shelf leaves the room heavy, so a low floor is indicated with space to support poufs if you get more visitors matching with loose shelves on the wall. For the television the recommended one to save space are the panels in the wall, supports them in low benches or embedded directly in the wall.
For the back of the room that have a window or door to the balcony, can be highly valued with a beautiful curtain or wall-colored in strong tones for the decoration to have more personality.
Inspirations from small living rooms decorated in style
Inspire yourself in some small rooms that Easy Decor has separated for you:
Picture 1 - Bet in light colors to leave the environment cleaner.
The Scandinavian decor style, just like the minimalist, focuses on the light colors to have a greater sense of spaciousness. In this project we see exactly this approach, with the light colors, the room that is small may seem larger than it really is. This is one of the techniques used to decorate small spaces: using visual tricks to change people's perception of the environment.
Picture 2 - To enjoy the space even more, choose a rack and panel with cabinets to store objects.
In small environments, take advantage of air spaces to use niches or small cabinets. In this way we gain space to store different types of objects, besides giving another face to the decoration. In this design, the rack-mounted panel uses this approach in a balanced way, without leaving the environment charged.
Picture 3 - Room with a low sofa that occupies little space in the vertical direction.
Another way to increase the sense of amplitude in the environment is to leave the walls clean, without pictures or objects that occupy a lot of vertical space. In this proposal, the living room sofa is low and helps to keep the wall clean. In it, only the wallpaper with a soft illustration, a way to break the monotony. With all the neutral colors, it is interesting to choose decorative objects with more vivid colors, such as vases, cushions, chandeliers, magazine holders and others.
Picture 4 - Use a coherent color chart when choosing furniture and objects.
Choosing several different colors for decorative objects requires balance and creativity. In this sense, also use the pastel shades that are high in the decoration at the time of planning. In this living room: light pink curtain, green frame, yellow and red cushions, navy blue center puff, black and white striped rug and gray blue sofa. All this without losing the clean characteristic of the white walls.

Picture 6 - Choose the minimalist style to decorate a small living room.
The decoration with minimalist style can be an excellent choice when decorating small environments, this having as a characteristic the use of practicality and functionality using few decorative and furniture objects. Light walls with wood floors or laminate with light tones leave the environment with a more natural, breaking the neutrality of white. In this proposal, there are few frames and elements on the shelves, and yet they have soft tones so they do not stand out much from the color of the wall.
Picture 7 - Create a contrast to highlight a particular attribute of the decoration.
The combination of contrasting colors can be used to highlight a particular object or feature of the decoration. In this example, the sofa, frames and other objects stand out when they are positioned in front of a wall with the dark graffiti color.
Picture 8 - Combine the room with a small corner for studies.
Was there a small space left? This proposal adds a shelf with glass and a sideboard used as a desk for the computer.
Image 9 - Design picking a vibrant color to stand out in an environment with light tones.
In this design, the purple color was chosen to contrast with the soft tones of the floor, wall and ceiling. In lighting, the skylight allows a wide entrance of natural light right in the center of the room.
Image 10 - A small room design with highlight for the lighting.
Lighting is a factor that directly influences the sense of amplitude of any environment. Whether natural or not, it is recommended that it be broad, especially for small environments that need to take advantage of each space. In rooms with little external lighting, it is interesting to consider the use of a dedicated project in this sense.
Picture 11 - Enjoy every inch with the use of narrow furniture.
In restricted environments, choose narrow furniture to maintain minimal circulation, as in this room with sofa and small rack. In this way the access to the balcony is free.
Picture 12 - Move to low furniture like sofas and coffee tables.
In a narrow room, look for furniture that is compatible with the space available. In this example there is no use of racks and the TV is embedded in the wall. Another option is to choose low furniture to leave the vertical space more open and clean.
Picture 13 - Small room that delimits the space with a sofa in L.
In this project, the proposal is to advance with room out of reach of the wall. To that end, an L-shaped sofa was chosen that delimits the available space. In the absence of walls and a gap available, this approach can be used.

The decorative objects say a lot about the owners of the house. Add your personal touch using photographs, paintings, pictures, lamps, cushions and rugs with drawings and prints that please you. Always remember to maintain harmony and do not leave the environment heavy.
Picture 24 - Bet on neutral colors with small details of color on decorative objects.
The neutral colors never go out of style and allow the protagonism of the colors to be destined to the decorative objects. The advantage is that environments like this are more flexible and can change faces according to the will of the residents.
Picture 25 - Small frames can leave a neutral environment with a touch of color.
In this design of a simple living room with few colors, the different frame formats were chosen to give more joy and movement to the decor.

Picture 27 - The wallpaper adds a touch of sophistication to any environment.
In this environment with ample natural light and light colors, the wallpaper was chosen to add a touch of color with prints and soft colors on the wall.
