D esigning the interiors of your home is not just about picking the colors or putting a few modern pieces of furniture here and there. A good interior designer can actually enhance your living space and make the most out of the spaces available.

Compact rooms with small furniture
Irrespective of the size, your living area needs to have ample free space. Using all the space properly doesn’t mean filling it up entirely.

Having a huge sofa or a big showcasing cabinet in the living room might look good on the digital screen but it could eat up the space unnecessarily. While choosing your furniture be mindful of the space you have in that particular area of your home. Even if you have a big space, it may be smart to choose the size you require not the size you think will look good. Don’t go overboard when it comes to size.

Lighting can be an added feature for your drawing room or the living room. Having different types of lighting can be a good idea too as it can serve different moods or occasions if needed.
Go bold on design elements
Are you thinking about your wide walls while planning the decorations? Just coloring your wide walls is not the only thing you can do to enhance your living space. Bold design elements like wall decor, artworks, 3D graphics, and contrast wall hangings can be game-changing.
Go with Greenery
One of the most popular and simplest of ideas to enhance your living space is to add greenery. Not only those fresh Lillies can brighten your living space, but you will also have an added option with the designer flower vase or the pots.
Modern-day multipurpose furniture is the new trend. An elegant-looking sofa in your slightly smaller living room is a perfect fit, but what if it can double up as a bed? Great, right? Just pull the extension and you have a bed to accommodate an extra person for the night. A vintage coffee table in your drawing room to complete the vintage theme? What if it has storage to keep all your fancy crockeries?
Don’t forget the corners
One of the most common sights in any household is empty corners or junk-filled corners. However, you can enhance your living space by smartly using the corners to your benefit. Move your armchair to one of the corners and make more space in the middle. This way you can have an extra sitting in the room and also that less frequently-used furniture will not eat up important space in the middle. If you have a showcasing wall mount, put it in the corner, keep a flower vase to enhance the corners.
