Living area

There are so many elements involved when decorating your living room. There are paint colours and flooring to decide on, which will set the tone of the space. If possible, put in some shelves or bookcases that can help you make the most of the room’s height and provide valuable storage. If you have a fireplace, make it a focal point, arranging your sofas and chairs to face it, and decorating the mantelpiece with pictures and ornaments.

At that point, it’s time to consider your furniture, taking into account how you use the space, what kind of sofa you prefer, how many armchairs you can fit in, whether you need an L shaped sofa and the importance of a coffee table or ottoman and of course side tables to put drinks on. The correct furniture can make a huge difference to the feeling of a room. Consider the size of the room, you don’t want small furniture drowning in a huge room, although small spaces can often benefit from some large furniture. In an open plan living room kitchen area, furniture can be essential for breaking up the space. A sofa with its back turned to the dining table or island is a handy way of differentiating between the living space and the dining space. And consider how you use your furniture before you make the final decision. Do you prefer to lounge on a soft sofa or is this a more formal room where you’d prefer to sit upright?

Colours: The colors you choose for your living space will affect how guests feel in the space. Colors can add vibrancy or relax the space, depending on how intense they are and how warm or cool they are.

A coastal scheme of soft blue and white makes a spacious living room feel calm, cool, and collected, a gracious setting for elegant gatherings. A warm carpet underfoot warms the space and keeps the cool tones in balance.

Choose a stylish but comfortable flooring. In keeping with the function of the living room, choose a floor covering that provides comfort underfoot and makes a design statement as well.

If you prefer a less bold floor, choose a solid neutral flooring that allows attention to focus on furniture or art. Hardwood floors with area rugs are one of the most popular choices for living room floors, but stone tiles and full carpeting work too.

Living rooms are gathering spaces, so use furniture arrangement to promote conversation and interaction. Pull seating pieces away from the walls and arrange them to face each other.

If you have a large living room, break it into conversational groups for a more comfortable, intimate feeling. Chairs and ottomans that can be pulled into the area as needed will allow you to expand the circle and still keep the intimacy.
