High-End Furniture and Accessories for Making a Small Living Room Look Bigger

Center TableUnless an individual chooses to undertake the monumental task of building their own home, or at least has an opportunity to directly influence their floor plan at the blueprint stage, the dimensions of the living room in the home will be at the discretion of the developer/builder. And in some cases, especially with condominium units and zero-lot-line residences, the sizes and shapes of some living rooms can be inherently small.

Coffee TableIn turn, when it comes to furnishing and decorating such rooms, homeowners may be faced with significant challenges relative to the choice and orientation of their furniture, as well as the incorporation of any accessories. Furthermore, the style of furniture, perhaps appealing to the tastes of the homeowner, can make a living room look even smaller, almost confining or claustrophobic, to anyone who passes through the doorway.

Coffee Table SetsFortunately, in circumstances when the dimensions of the floor space cannot be changed, there are many ways of making a small room look bigger. How? By implementing these tips offered by the high-end furniture specialists from Carrocel fine furniture in Toronto:


  • Select a sofa and chair(s) that have raised legs – creates an aura of space and light
  • Choose tables with glass or acrylic tops and visible legs to uncover more floor space
  • Install a floor-to-ceiling or wall-to-wall bookcase – can make the ceiling seem higher
  • Add furniture with multi-functional capabilities, such as a credenza, ottoman, or trunk
  • Consider backless seating (ottomans, benches, stools) for functionality yet less clutter
  • Include one or two luxury furniture pieces of the same colour as the walls of the room
  • Restrict the furniture to a few larger pieces – optics will make a small room look bigger


  • Adorn upper walls with paintings and framed photos – gives the illusion of more height
  • Hang a mirror on the wall opposite the window – to reflect natural light, add brightness
  • Incorporate several different lighting elements versus the customary overhead fixtures
  • If room has some shelving, leave some areas empty/exposed to avoid a cluttered look
  • Ensure that fabrics and area rugs are restricted to plain/cohesive colours or small prints
