Is your space feeling a little cramped? Do you need a little update to make the space look and feel its best? Then you’ve come to the right place!

The first and most important thing to look for when seeking to optimize your living room space is looking for furniture pieces that serve multiple purposes. For example, coffee tables and side tables with built-in storage can go a long way in keeping your design looking chic and uncluttered. Additionally, your modern furniture should always suit your personal style. So, whether you are looking for something bright and airy or industrial and masculine, there is an option for you. What sets us apart at Revolve is that you can get real time advice from our qualified team of designers about how to maximize your space while staying in your design preferences, just by coming down to visit our showroom.

Float your furniture!

Did you know that one of the biggest design misconceptions is to put all of your furniture against the wall to make your space appear larger? Copious amount of floor space is truly only wasted space, so do not hesitate to float your furniture to create room for other pieces. Try floating the back of your couch just far enough from the wall to add in a desk and chair, and voila! You have a dual purpose space that can serve your work needs and your lounge needs.

Scale down the size!

Bigger isn’t always better when it comes to furniture, in fact, bigger just takes up more space. Features such as floating shelves or a bookcase will still offer the same aesthetic and storage appeal as their alternatives without taking up a bunch of square footage. Still want the physical piece? Opt for a leaner piece that isn't as deep or bulky. Other things that can save you space are features such as flat backed sofas or chairs. This option offers a tighter, more square fit in your living room. When you’re trying to optimize space, a couple inches can actually go a long way.

Play around with your layout!

When organizing your living room space, one of the things that should be at the top of your mind is how you can maximize seating if you were to be hosting more than a couple of guests. Smaller chairs or even a soft, ottoman coffee table can offer flex seating and will make entertaining a little bit more comfortable and easy.

The era of modern furniture is here to serve you and your needs, and shopping for a condensed space has never been easier. Do you have more questions about maximizing your living space? Come visit us, one of the best furniture stores in Calgary, and our team of trusted experts will be happy to help provide the personalized advice you need.
