Tips for decorating a small living room

Hi there! today I am going to make some sharing regarding the title Tips for decorating a small living room. As I had mentioned on my previous post on August 29, in many of today's new home builds, either your living room or family room will be a smaller  room.  There are many things that can be done to help visually enlarge smaller spaces. There are ways to use darker colours and larger scale furniture in smaller spaces, but their successful use takes a trained eye.  If you want to decorate a small room  with confidence the following ideas are easily applied.  

Choose light  furniture with simple lines 

There's only one thing I would change in this room. With everything else  so light , I find the darker wood of the table somewhat harsh. Something lighter would be more cohesive.

Choose furniture first and look for pieces that are light in colour and have legs. Lighter colours occupy less visual weight and legs provide an unobstructed view of the floor, allowing the space to appear more open.  Coffee and end tables in metal and glass also allow the eye to move through the pieces consuming little visual space while dark wood furniture has the opposite effect.  The cow hide ottoman above works because it is overall light and has great legs. It also serves to connect the tones of the wood pieces in the room. Click HERE to read more......

Many of these ideas will work in much larger rooms too. The most important thing to remember is to select furniture that is the right scale for the space you are decorating.

The value of the space in Kuala Lumpur is become limited, and the prices of the space is become higher since 2009,  the design and size of the condominium in KL is much more smaller compare 10 years ago, and the selling price of a condominium is about RM250,000 to RM600,000 per unit, and it is just around on range of 600-1,200 sq ft! Some said it was terrible, but it is still better than Hong Kong, so, please don't get mad, HA HAH.....

Well, this is quite common sense, usually such a small condominium, don't provide us a bigger spaces, especially on the kitchen side, and the challenge is how to design a functional and stylist kitchen with limited space for a small condominium? 

More and more builders and developers in Malaysia incorporating interior fit out works for their finished building. In high end development projects in KLCC, Bangsar, Damansara and Mont Kiara areas all completed units does comes with basic fit out such as kitchen cabinets, wardrobes, air-conditioner, intercom, water heater and plaster ceiling.

The combination of Small living room and kitchen design ideas

Good Morning! great day to you all.... well this morning, I would like to make some sharing for those small living room and kitchen design ideas. I am sure more of you may like it very much!

Combing living room, dining table and kitchen together

This ideas uses the clever concept of a dining table to separate the small space into living room and kitchen. The dining table itself takes up very minimal space as it is built on the same space as a wall that has been knocked down.

Living room and kitchen together along the same wall

If you take out the divider separating the kitchen and the living room, it is actually a single space along the same wall. Just by adding a small divider, it creates the living room and kitchen from the one room. This concept is simple but very doable.

Combine a bedroom on top of kitchen and living room

This room design makes full use of its high ceiling as an advantage and create a loft bedroom on top of the kitchen. In this way, the remaining space can be used as a living room without thinking about where to place the bed. It is an innovative concept for a small house with high ceiling. A lot more!
