To help further open up the room, use mirrors and glass table tops. Mirrors reflect light and give the illusion of a larger room. Make sure that the mirror reflects a view or an ornamental item to enhance the room. Use glass table tops to give your small living room an open feel, rather than using hard wood table that further shrinks the room.
The only drawback of traditional living room furniture is that most pieces in this style are a bit large. So if you would like to furnish your living room in this style you need to have a large living room. Sofas, recliners and stand alone chairs generally come with curved and artistically done up handles and legs. These pieces need to be kept well apart so as not to give a crowded look to the room. Besides, it is only when they are placed apart can the craftsmanship be admired.
A natural wood finish helps to keep the living space look open and spacious, and their solid construction will resist many knocks. Solid oak, and indeed solid pine, can be easily looked after - minor scratches and marks are easily sanded away and a light application of oil or wax will bring out the natural warmth and give the furniture a really mellow appeal. Cupboard space like this will give you plenty of room to tidy away toys, DVDs and books.
Durability is another factor to be considered while buying a living room sofa. If you are buying a sofa for a formal living room and will be rarely using it, you will most probably prefer the stylish sofa. However, if you are going to extensively use the sofa, then the color and fabric of the sofa is also to be considered. Especially when you have children or pets at home, it is most likely that the sofa will be stained.
