Start small when searching for easy upgrades for a small living room. Something like a light fixture is the perfect way to make an impact without much work. And Jodie has given the green light (get it?) to the wall sconce, which she has placed on her emerald green walls, in the living room alongside her black shelving unit. 

"The round silhouette of these sconces, coupled with the sleek chrome finish, offers a modern yet timeless appeal," says designer Nina Lichtenstein. "The chrome finish enhances their contemporary look, making them ideal for various design styles, from industrial loft to eclectic chic."

It's a great way to modernize a small living room and add an interesting style element. Here's how to make it work in your home.

1. Think about placement

 Arguably the most important question of all is, "Where should I put my sconce?"

"Draw on its simplicity and clean lines, and really think about its placement relative to furniture and architectural features," says interior designer Bree Steele of RJ Living.

If you want to draw your eye to a focal point in the room, place it near artwork. Otherwise, Bree suggests positioning them on opposite sites of a bookshelf for a sophisticated approach, similarly to Jodie's setup. 

2. Select the right room color

Curious about the best colors to paint a small living room? When working with this look, Nina suggests going all out. 

"Embrace the bold color options — red, blue, green, or classic white — to make a striking statement in your decor," she says.

3. Play with the brightness

Since you can control the amount of light in the room, use it to your advantage when setting the tone. 

"Warm color tones create a welcoming atmosphere for relaxation, while cooler hues add vibrancy and focus to work or study areas," Nina adds. "With remote-controlled dimming, you have the flexibility to adapt lighting to different activities and occasions effortlessly."

4. Clean when needed

Of course, like any other piece, it's going to require a little upkeep. Make sure to have some of the best cleaning supplies on hand. 

"Modern sconces are pretty easy to clean because of their finishes, so they are easy to maintain with regular upkeep," Bree notes. "Regular dusting with a soft cloth can prevent buildup on both the fixture and the bulb. For glass, a glass cleaner can remove fingerprints and smudges without damaging the surface."
