1. Use ottomans and stool as extra seats in small living rooms.

When it comes to creating small living room designs, practicality and life-improving elements are the most important inclusions. With this in mind, maintaining clear pathways but always accounting for enough seating options can seem like an impossible balancing act, but by using clever furniture pieces, dual functionality can be taken advantage of.
