My living room is small so everything basically in a square. I can't do anything different,because there is not enough room. Any suggestions?

Sectionals are a wonderful way to utilze small spaces... Fabric ottoman, 1 occassional chair and wall mount your tv.
Make sure all your funriture stays off the floor.. Should have legs.. Makes the room seems bigger when furntire has legs. Paint in lighter colors... All furniture should be light as well.. Beige, yellows, nice tweed...

Ikea has much for small space and budget friendly design. But let me add, sitting rooms can be very small and cozy. I love small rooms, their easy to design and change. Here's some ideas for the basic's;

I agree, I love sectionals and found one for last apartment that was a smaller scale and it worked great.
