With 70% of the population in the world due to living in cities by 2050, living-space within capitals is decreasing.

The UK has some of the smallest properties in Europe, with the average sized UK home 44% smaller than in 1920, new and innovative styles are being adopted in homes

Working with interiors stylist Cate St. Hill, Sony has come up with key styling tips for three small living room concepts; one for families, one for couples and one for renters

Sony has introduced its compact sound bar – the ideal space saving solution for small living spaces; the small and stylish speaker delivers high-quality sound for TV whilst requiring little space due to its compact design. The versatile subwoofer and cinematic quality sound create the ultimate immersive living room experience and its Bluetooth connectivity means the compact sound bar can double up as a speaker system, making it the perfect piece of technology to include in a small home.

With the growing trend of urbanisation and the resulting migration of people from rural areas to cities rapidly increasing, available living space is becoming harder to find. The average sized home has decreased by 44% since 1920, with most homes in the 1920s measuring approximately 1,647 square feet compared to a measly 732 square feet current homes measure at (or 85 square metres).

The shrinking of home size has led to minimalist and compact designs becoming increasingly popular within the home due to its functionality and simplicity. As a result, Sony has teamed up with interiors stylist Cate St Hill to create a series of styling tips for three different small living room environments: for couples, families, and renters. Thus, ensuring that the most likely living space scenarios are catered for.
