Clever ideas for small living rooms can transform a space from cramped and cluttered to cozy and welcoming, as well as ensuring that every corner is put to good use. The following ideas inspire decorations for even the smallest of rooms.

A place that mostly kids will use, or it will be an adults-only retreat. After this step, you can start thinking about decoration.
