How to decorate your living space

Monoma offers unfurnished living spaces, allowing you to unleash your creativity to make your space your own. You can decorate your living space in different ways to make sure you have a nice and cosy living space where you feel at home.


With Monoma, we encourage our residents to try new things. Sometimes traditional ideas about living room décor aren’t the best solution for some living spaces.

Regardless of the type of space you’re decorating, there’s nothing more important than paying attention to details. Your living space, regardless of size, should be able to function as a space for relaxation and entertaining. Here are some ways to decorate your living space. Up for the challenge? Check our decorating tips below;

Decorate with mirrors

With a mirror, not only will you have a way to look at yourself other than your phone camera on, but you’ll get more light bouncing around in the room, and a mirror can take the room look bigger as well. If possible, position a mirror across from your window so it will reflect the view and give the illusion of another window.

Use neutral colours

One of the most popular living space ideas is the use of neutral colours. A palette of off-whites or beiges will expand the space by appearing to push back the walls. Soft hues also tend to illuminate a room by reflecting light. A neutral palette imparts instant sophistication and creates a calming environment.

Choose furniture with a lightweight appearance

Since most of the rooms come unfurnished, when you shop for furniture, make sure you consider its virtual weight. This concept refers to the perceived heaviness of an object based on size, colour and design. Pick out pieces that have a lightweight appearance, as heavier ones will seem to constrict a space.

Select small scale furniture

It is of great importance to select furniture that won’t empower the room or appear to dominate the living space. A sofa with thin arms and a tightly upholstered back is preferable to one with substantial arms and a multi-cushion back. If the living space is a little bit tight, you could do without a couch completely, either choosing a loveseat or opting to position four chairs around a coffee table. When picking out chairs, consider armless ones because they will take up less space than a model with arms.
