Many people live in increasingly small spaces, especially in larger cities. Designers and brands have noticed the need for space saving furniture and storage solutions and Scossa have a selection of modern furniture which can help maximise any small living space.
Modern furniture solutions
Depending on how much room you have in your living room, having each item placed in the correct place is important to get the most out of a small space. By adding mirrors, innovative furniture and storage solutions, you can transform a small living room into a functional area.
Storage is key for any space large or small but is more important when space is at a premium. Scossa work with Italian brands Silenia and Pianca for all things storage from TV units to sideboards for the living room. The furniture is modular so you can create a bespoke storage solution for any size space. Another way to save space is to wall mount the TV unit to free up floor space and instantly create a roomier feel.
Clever use of mirrors will give the illusion of space. The most popular idea in a small living room is to hang a large mirror in a central location which will create a focal point. Also, positioning a mirror across from a window will reflect the view (and light) and give an illusion of another window which will create an impression of a larger space.
Neutral colour scheme
Neutral colours make a smaller room look brighter and more spacious. Create a lighter feel in the space with a colour scheme of white, greys and cream. Metals and glass are also good materials to use to help reflect light around the room, giving the illusion of more space in a small area.
It’s important to position larger pieces of furniture including seating, coffee tables and sideboards to ensure you get the maximum space out of your small room. Sofas need to be in proportion to the room and choosing sofas and chairs that add a lightweight appearance is important. Choose a sofa on legs to create a more open feel. Italian designer Calligaris have a range of sofas on legs in varying styles and colours.
It’s also a good idea to choose other furniture for your living room that makes the most of the available space. KARTELL have a fantastic range of ‘invisible’ coffee tables and occasional chairs that will make even the smallest room feel uncluttered.
