1. ONE XL SOFA BETTER THAN TWO MINI
Forget about two mini sofas and go for just one bigger one. Better if it is the corner because it enables corner squares, or with a chaise longue module, like this one. Don’t miss the rest of this floor, full of masterful solutions.
2. LET THE LIGHT IN
A brighter apartment will always look more spacious than one with little natural light. In this sense, you must keep the windows clear so that nothing gets in the way of the light. On this floor, even curtains have been dispensed with!
3. INCORPORATE THE BALCONY TO THE TERRACE
It is a job that can be done in one day. The most important thing is that the glass is of quality. The only “but” is that you will need the permission of the city council and the community of neighbors. In addition to the project of an architect. One tip: ask for 3 quotes to compare prices.
4. ALLY YOURSELF WITH THE SOFA
Whenever you can, bring it to the wall and arrange it facing the entrance of the living room, so space will seem much larger.
5. POWER THE EXTERIOR
If you look outside, as in this room with a large window, you will give more visual depth to space, which will appear much larger.
6. BET ON WHITE
White is the most luminous color: up to 96% reflected light. And it doesn’t have to be cold.
7. NO COFFEE TABLE?
In small rooms you can do without the coffee table in favor of side tables: they are lighter and you can move them if the occasion requires it.
8. LESS IS MORE
In the absence of meters, simplicity. Go for basic furniture and do not fear that they are large: many small ones take up more space.
9. CURTAINS MATTER (AND A LOT)
For the curtains, go for light and airy fabrics, with an open weave and light colors: the light will flow and they will look less static. If you opt for rails, hide the mechanism.
