5 Creative Small Living Room Improvement Ideas

For a small living room, mostly you don’t have the luxury to let walls to be a room divider. For that reason, use A rug and cupboard to take this job. More on that later.

1. Suitcase Table

Now you could transform the table to have double storage level. Pairing the old suitcase and the suitable table legs, you could get a chic suitcase table. Make sure the legs has been painted with coordinated color. Set the suitcase to its legs by drilling screws. Cover the screw mark inside the suitcase by using pretty fabric. It will also serve as the pad for your first storage level. You could also put knick knacks or cookie jars on the suitcase. Source

2. Muuto Wall Lamp

The corner of living room is usually dark and lack of lighting. Turn the table by installing a chic muuto wall lamp. Go to the store and buy a bracket, a lamp, and a plug. Choose a spot which is not too far from the electric socket. Mount the bracket to the wall, setting the bar to face down. Drill two holes on the bracket: one near the bar tip, and one near the wall. Set the fixture and light it up! Source

3. Stylish Rug

For a small room, you don’t have the luxury to let walls be the room divider. A rug and cupboard take this job instead. Give some pattern on the plain boring rug. You will need paint, measure tape, painter tape and roller brush. Decide for a pattern first. Then you have to tape the pattern, which may take more than an hour. Spread the paint on the surface, and let it dry. Peel of the tape and spray fiber coating liquid before setting the rug on its original place. Source

4. Pencil Wall

Doodling on the wall could be fun and artistic too! As long as you know what to draw and put guiding lines, there will be less room for errors. Guess what? You only need paper cake plate and an oil marker. Find a round plate that suits your design. Remember: the smaller the plate, the longer you will work on the project. Start from the left side and down, continued with tracing to the right side. When reaching the edges, fold the plate. Source

5. Warm Pallet Lamp

Prepare the materials: pallet wood, plywood, lamp holder, lamp cord, and light bulb. Cut the plywood to 6 x 6.5 inches size as the base. Then you have to make a crate frame using the pallet wood. Make sure you provide some spaces to let the light escapes from the pallet frame. Paint them with your favorite color. Before fixing the plywood to the frame, mount the lamp holder and install the lamp fixture. Source
