Small Living Room – With a smaller living room, you need to make use of the space you have and use lighter colours and mirrors to create the feeling of space.

Long Living Room – A long and thin living room can become narrow and claustrophobic if you don’t take care with the space. Separating the room using shelving as a divider is a good way to make it feel more spacious, and creating a feature wall with your television is a clever way to increase storage space – a professional like this TV aerials Cardiff based company will be able to move your aerial where you need it and then you can surround the wall mounted tv with bookshelves or ornaments to add interest.
