If your condo living room has no patio, consider using house plants to bring more of that outdoor feeling inside.

Those windows are the room’s natural life force, and sunlight only enters the room from the outward-facing wall. Keep them open and place your plants in front of them.

2. Choose A Beautiful Accent Color For One Wall

If you have a small living space with only one wall of windows but love color, consider painting an accent wall.

If you keep the other walls more neutral, you can have your favorite color without making the room dark or closed in feeling.

3. Add Wainscoting To Give Your Condo Living Room The Feeling Of A Home

If you’re looking for a unique finish to add to your living room, why not add trim to give your room an old-world feel?

Here, beautiful wainscoting has been added throughout the room, and crown molding has been added at the top where the walls meet the ceiling. 

4. Put Your Dining Table Near The Window

Often, in condo living rooms, you walk in the front door into the kitchen, and then there’s a small table area and the living area beyond.

What if you mix it up a bit?

Place your dining room table near the gorgeous window instead of more interior. Here, mismatched chairs add character to the small wooden table.

5. Add Dramatic Lighting For An Elegant Look

In this luxury condo living room, the lighting is the showstopper. Elegant built-in lights rim the edge of the tray ceiling for a unique look.

The boxed fixture over the dining table emits the same soft white light as the ceiling fixtures.

6. Back-Up Your Sectional To The Sliding Doors

If you have really large floor-to-ceiling doors that take up the entire end of your condo living room, you may want to back up a piece of furniture to them.

Here, the small sectional is placed so that it doesn’t block the whole doorway to the balcony, but it does give more space for the living room.

We have another post on this subject: “How To Arrange Furniture In A Living Room With A Wall Of Windows.”

7. Keep Your Furniture Pieces Small And Cozy

If you have a condo living room, chances are it’s smaller.

That’s why it’s great to pick pieces that provide super seating and comfort but work within the scale of your place.

8. Invest In A Beautiful Light Fixture

The advantage of condo ownership is that you can change paint and lighting.

Here, the homeowner chose an exquisite chandelier that elevates the room’s look.

9. Keep Things Light And Bright

If you’re in a loft space with a whole lot of exposed brick and wooden beams, consider painting the brick a light color.

The wood beams have been kept natural, but the brick has been painted light and creamy white. As a result, the entire living room is light and bright.

10. Invest In A Great Sofa

If you live in a condo, one of the best things you can do for yourself is to invest in a great sofa. We love this beautiful buttery leather model with Scandinavian-style legs.

11. Use Your Bicycle As Decor

Condominiums are a great idea for a whole lot of reasons. But sometimes they lack good storage.

Consider a multi-tasking approach if you commute to work on your bicycle or have one for weekend fun. Store your bike in a way that acts as living room decor.

12. Choose A Beautiful Color For Your Upholstery

One way to make your condo living room stand out is to choose a beautiful color for your upholstery.

Whether you’re buying a vibrant turquoise couch or something else entirely, choosing a color you love will really personalize your interior.

13. Add Some Shelving Near The Ceiling

It’s great to think of clever storage ideas because storage can be limited in a condominium compared to a house.

A book ledge has been built above the window wall in this small condo living room—a great way to add that extra area without removing floor space or sacrificing natural light from the windows.

14. Use Your Stair Wall For An Art Gallery

If you have a set of stairs in your condo living room, that stair wall may seem like wasted space. It’s time to rethink that!

You can use the stairwell as a gallery of your favorite art or photographs, or you can hang a beautiful collection of small framed mirrors to reflect all the outdoor light. 

15. Hang Your Television On The Wall

One way to save space in your condo living room is to hang your television rather than sit it on furniture.

This way, all your floor space can be used for humans and the furniture needed to be comfortable.

16. Choose Multi-Functional Pieces

Though the dog is a great addition, that’s not the multi-function we’re referring to.

We really love the cube-styled bookcase on the back wall. It’s a great size for showcasing framed photos, objects of art, and books.

But it also can be outfitted with baskets and bins if you need hidden storage.

17. Pick A Nice Area Rug To Define Your Spaces

The judicial use of area rugs can go a long way toward defining living spaces. The area rug clearly defines the living area, keeping the kitchen area separate.

18. An Open Frame Coffee Table Will Keep Things From Looking Bulky

If you have a tight condo living room, choose a coffee table that is not bulky. Here, an open wire frame base holds up the wooden tabletop, but the effect is open and not heavy.

19. Pick An Awesome Sectional And Coffee Table If You Love Movie Watching In Your Living Room

If your favorite living room activity is lying on the sofa and watching movies, design it for that.

Here, a comfortable sectional room takes up two full walls in the living room. A large square coffee table is centered in it. On the opposite wall, a TV console table provides storage and a spot for the viewing screen.

20. Make Every Piece Count

If you have a dramatic view from an upper-story condo, make your living room count.

Pick a few really stellar pieces and one or two paintings you love, and keep things simple yet comfortable. 

21. Set A Mood

The designer has set a calming mood in this beautiful condo living room.

Leaving the red brick wall exposed speaks to the building’s industrial heritage, but the feather-calm beiges and browns make it feel like a tranquil oasis.

We love the thoughtful selection of comfortable pieces and colors that work so well together, right down to the gorgeous shade on the window. 

Bamboo Roman shades

22. Make Good Use Of Additional Lighting

Lamps are super important in condo living rooms. Because they often lack many windows, floor, and table lamps can fill in where you may need a bit of extra lighting.

It’s also really fun to find pieces perfect for your interior.

23. Use Your Window Wall For A Home Office

If your condo living room doubles as your home office, consider setting it up at the window end.

This gives you loads of natural light for your workday and something to look at when you take breaks.

A desk typically won’t block the light, and putting it against the window tucks it out of the way.

Small table

A small table like this would be a perfect window-front workspace as it’s not bulky. Click here for this desk on Amazon.

24. A Ventless Gas Heater Can Give You The Feeling Of A Fireplace

If you love a fireplace but don’t have a flue, consider adding a ventless gas or electric heater to your condo living room.

These units are easy to install and often come with beautiful flame options. With a simple click of the remote, you can have the warmth and appearance of a natural fire.

You might have to hire someone to install it, but a recessed ventless electric fireplace can elevate your condo living room from warm to wow! Click here for this model on Amazon.

25. Add A Hammock For Fun Lounging

If your condominium living room has gorgeous windows, why not hang a hammock in front of them?

Not only will it look extraordinary, but it will also be a unique conversation piece when friends are over.

We guarantee people will be vying to see who gets to swing in the hammock.

If you don’t want a full hammock, try a hammock chair. You can sit cross-legged and curl up with a good book and your favorite kitty cat. Click here for this on Amazon.

26. Create A Reading Nook Near The Window

Rather than put your main living seating area next to the window, consider adding a simple auxiliary seating area.

Here, a comfy armchair, side table, and area rug create that kind of nook.

27. Wallpaper An Accent Wall

Wallpaper is back in fashion, so why not make a statement in your condo living room?

Here, bold color furniture works great with this greenery-filled wallpaper.

Whether you gussy it up with furniture, paint, or grand lighting, there is a way to make it stand out and be uniquely yours.
