You've got to sit somewhere, but your small home may not support the large, leather entertainment seating unit you've always dreamed of. Downsized rooms require downsized furnishings. When you're shopping for a couch, look for one with clean, straight lines, and lose the overstuffed look. A style with longer, exposed legs is a good idea, too. If your living room is very small, consider buying a three-seater couch or a couple of loveseats instead of one, long couch. It'll be easier to arrange the furniture -- and rearrange it when the situation calls for it.
