How to Arrange Furniture in a Long Narrow Living Room
How to arrange furniture in a long narrow living room? We already know that white adds luminosity and helps a room look bigger because it reflects light. However when it comes to decorating a narrow and elongated room it is not convenient that all the walls are white, the ideal is to paint a tone that contrasts the walls that are furthest away from each other.
In this way what is achieved is that the darker walls visually approach, while the white walls move away, so that thanks to this optical effect the room will seem less elongated. If we support all the furniture on both sides of the longer walls we run the risk of leaving a small space in the center that enhances the “corridor effect” of the room. The focal point of a room is where our gaze is going as we enter it.
When decorating a narrow and elongated room we must place the focal point in an intermediate area, for example a striking hanging lamp can be placed in the center of the room so that the eye does not focus on the depth of the room. Another option is to place a picture or mural on one of the elongated walls and to call our attention, in this way it “distracts” the eye from the proximity of the walls since it only focuses the view on one of them.
