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.
When bedrooms are smaller than homeowners would like, a hanging nightstand can be the perfect accessory. These are functional enough that they can be used to hold quite a few things, and this idea helps to free up some floor space, creating the illusion of having more space and making the room look less cluttered.
