Some of the best new living room space savers
If you’re feeling the squeeze in your living room, you’re not alone. Once you add a lounge, occasional chair, coffee table and TV cabinet, there may not be much circulation space left — especially if it’s a small room.
Some clever tricks can help overcome that cramped feeling. Rather than having a large coffee table in the centre of the room, consider a side table that can hook over the lounge.
Nesting tables have been around for years but they are perfect for entertaining and a fantastic way to save space the rest of the time.
Shelving takes up minimal space while offering storage, while ottomans with hidden storage inside are another great option.
Lounges are inevitably the largest piece of furniture in a living room so it’s worth taking a look at the options available and considering ones with built in storage.
While it might seem counterintuitive, a modular lounge is often a great way to provide maximum seating in small spaces rather than separate lounges.
Designs for modular lounges have continued to evolve and become more sophisticated to include built-in side tables and concealed storage.
