Small Living Room Arrangement with Lots of Storage

The long wall has enough room for a large shelving unit, and the table behind the sofa provides additional storage and a possible place for lighting. This furniture arrangement is ideal for a single adult or a couple. With the exchange of the bar for a slightly larger table, this arrangement could also work for a small family. During entertaining, the stools or chairs could be moved somewhere else in the room for temporary, additional seating, and the bar used as a serving area.

Armless sofas look sleek in small spaces, but they are not especially comfortable for lounging about. You may not have a tiny living room forever, and a sofa may last 10 years or more, so choose a sofa that is comfortable. Think of your sofa as an investment and then purchase less expensive accent furnishings.

When purchasing accent chairs, think “light.” Anything with a heavy look or dark colors will feel huge in the room. Arm less chairs, like slipper chairs, can be a good choice. Avoid anything with a tall backrest. Transparent chairs such as “ghost” chairs look great in small spaces.
