9. Utilise storage
When putting together your long living room ideas, storage should be at the forefront of your mind. The key to creating a cosy, welcoming and spacious lounge in rooms of this shape is to ensure that everything has its place. Clutter and everyday knick-knacks will make your room feel overcrowded and small, so it will be important to include plenty of functional storage options.
Choose a television stand that has drawers. These are perfect for storing remotes, magazines, game controllers and other items you wouldn’t necessarily want on show. Similarly, a coffee table with storage options is another great way of including dual-purpose furniture in your space. Think about incorporating a storage ottoman or footstool too, these are perfect for extra seating and can store toys, blankets or other items easily.
