Modern houses are always associated with space scarcity, but you really don’t need to feel bad about it. With latest design approaches and innovations, it is time to give your small room, a rich and nifty appearance.

The catch here is, these ideas can be incorporated without affecting your budget. According to experts, if you add the right elements in your room, for instance, a cozy carpet, matching furniture, and beautiful lights, even the smallest corner can be transformed into a living heaven.

​Furniture away from the wall

The elongated rectangular design of this living room is sufficient to twist the way it looks. Entire décor of this place focuses on elegance and simplicity and the first thing that comes to our mind is the decorative wall that is extending all the way to top. It surely adds a trendy vibe in this living room.

​A room with a view

When space is the top focus, you have to integrate every inch of the house with the right elements. There is an extended seating just by the side of the window, letting you enjoy the warmth of the space and natural lights.

​Modern sensibility

Even if your study room is quite compact, you don’t need to compromise on your style. To enhance the colour of rich timber, the place is enhanced with blue dividers. The fusion of colour and potted plants makes this space a true charm.

​Teal Beauty

Without even trying, people assume that teal is too bright to be a colour in the living room, but this house clears all the doubts. The picturesque window and chairs in deep chocolate shade give the room a perfect modern twist.
