Keep it simpleThe small living area within this open-plan room features some classic space-efficient ideas. Shelves set high on the wall provide storage and make more of the underused top third of the room; folding chairs are stacked neatly against a wall, ready to be employed when friends drop in, and a simple palette of white with bursts of grey and red creates cohesion, which in turn creates a feeling of space.

Try for tidinessA living room is a communal space, so it’s important that it remains tidy and ready for any member of the household to use. Unfortunately, small spaces feel messier and dirtier faster than larger homes, just by virtue of their size. So if you can, create a cleaning plan with everyone sharing the room and stick to it. If that’s not possible, be mindful of your mess. Clear up coffee cups, magazines and stray slippers in a bid to keep the space looking great and feeling as big as possible.

Contemplate whiteIf your look is light and bright and you’re in the market for a new television, consider one with a white frame rather than standard black. It’s a small yet noticeable detail within an all-white room.

Boost living room storageWith that spare room full of your stuff gone, you’ll need to create additional storage in the rest of your home. High-level floating shelving that stretches from wall to wall looks great – painted the same colour as the walls it creates an architectural detail – and can stash heaps of books, magazine holders full of domestic filing and good-looking storage boxes without compromising space.
