For those looking to maximize the space in their living room, a sectional sofa is probably the best choice. Not only does sectional living room furniture free up space in the center of the living room through its placement against the wall, it also offers more space to sit because of the corner wedge that connects the two main parts of the sofa. A sectional sofa also offers more space to lie down for a nap for the same reason, and some of the sofas with wider seats can serve as a very comfortable sleeping sofa, as is. Corner sofas are also more contemporary in design but will fit with contemporary or traditional decor depending on the design of the sofa.
Stripes are known in the fashion world for making a person appear larger than they actually are. Wearing stripes may not be the best idea, but using this same philosophy in a bedroom is a great idea. Horizontal stripes on an accent wall can add the perfect amount of colour while helping make a room feel less cramped.
