Wall-mounted decor not only frees up precious foot space, but these cool floating cabinets, shelves and modular units also give the living room a more cheerful, breezy ambiance. They undoubtedly cut back on visual clutter and you can even use them to introduce new patterns, textures and sculptural features. Just remember though that you might not want to go berserk with wall-mounted modular units in smaller living rooms as they can easily seem overbearing when done wrong.
