Arrangement and Clutter
Well, now as you have everything that you need to decorate your apartment living room, you need to deal with clutter and living room arrangement. The first step to decorating living room is removing all the clutter, which is even more important if you are working on an apartment living room, which oftentimes comes in small scale. Throw away the piles of your magazine; remove all of the small collectibles; and clear off your coffee table and your end tables. You can always bring your collectibles back once you determine how your living room is going to appear, but for the time being, you need to remove just any objects which distract you from decorating your room. Next, rearrange your furniture, so you can get good traffic flow and there will be no objects interfering from the flow. You need to be able to move to your chairs and couch without necessarily moving objects. Create a certain space for your conversation. The last thing to do is arranging your furniture, so you can talk with visiting family or friend easily. Also, decorate around the existing focal point. If the existing on is a fireplace, you need to add large candles to its mantle.
