What Houzz contributors are saying:
Keep it rawIf you’re keen to add an industrial touch to your home, try stripping back your ceiling to reveal the bare surface beneath it. The owners of this modern living room have exposed a textured finish that forms a striking contrast to the smooth walls and furniture. The material here looks as if it’s concrete, but this idea would work just as well with an area of raw plaster. Don’t worry about imperfections in the finish, as this adds to the character of the room.
Rule 2: Use only small furniture in a tiny spaceIn a tight area, we often think we need to maximise the space by using only small furniture. However, if you overfill a small room with small furniture it can feel a little cluttered. How to break it By playing with scale and including some oversized pieces in your small space, you’ll make the room feel more comfortable and inviting. The key is to combine your large items with smaller ones, for example you could pair an oversized armchair with a slim and sleek sofa. Oversized lighting is also worth considering, such as a large pendant over a dining room table. It can create a beautiful sculptural feature.
