Add layers to your space with the use of Rug

Using rugs to layer is a smart interior decor way to add a touch of colors, patterns, and textures to a living area. Layering a small rug over a larger one can direct the eye to a specific area. It works best when the two rugs are of different sizes, with a large and dominant piece and other smaller pieces to act as an accent. Make sure the top piece is at least 2/3 the size of the piece underneath.

Multi-functional furniture

When it comes to decorating a limited living area, it is always wise to choose furniture that are multi-functional. For homes with limited space, sofa bed is a

better option than a two or three-seater, you can use it as a sofa and as a bed when your friend or relative has a staycation at your home.

OVO DAYDREAM is one of our custom-made sofas that provide you with function of a bed as well as storage.

Space-saving furniture

It is always wise choosing furniture that is space-saving. A round dining table usually takes up less space while extendable dining tables are in trend today, it is a thoughtful innovation to fit a living room with limited space. You can expand the table to accommodate your guests and retract it when they leave. Sofa, another essential piece of furniture in the living room, is ideal to get one that is less deep to encourage more movement in the living area. OVO KULU and VITA sofas are custom-made with smaller depths to suit the need of small homes.

TENDER coffee table

A round and low coffee table is a better choice compared to a rectangular one. Pairing coffee tables side by side gives you a roomier space and at the same time enhances the character of a living area.

Built-in shelving

Built-ins not only help to organize stuff discreetly, add style and personality but also maximize living space without causing a visual break. Traditional white built-ins with open shelving can fit perfectly with any interior space. Living room built-ins halfway up the wall manage to maximize living space while framing the focal point without blocking any light.
