Ideas and tips: how to make the living room larger in just a few steps.
The sofa is the reference point and focal element of the living room, and it is on this piece of furniture that we must focus all our attention to make the living room larger. The choice of sofa is certainly one of the best memories we all have of when we were setting up our home. The simplest and most obvious reasoning would lead us to prefer a small sofa, and perhaps a couple of armchairs, in a small living room. This is a furnishing mistake, for the simple reason that so many small pieces of furniture “suffocate” the room!

But, in recent years it has come back into fashion as, a large rug, perhaps in light shades, will give us the feeling of open space and a larger living room. Even better if we match the colours of the rug to those of the surrounding walls, because we will also gain the light effect.
