Of all the existing spaces in your house, the living room can be the most fascinating room to decorate. Creativity, functionality, and imagination are indeed the main keys to decorating a stylish living room, which your family and your visiting friends can enjoy. You need to start with a clean slate by removing all of the clutters, then opt for colors that you like the most and decoration style you prefer. As always, the experiment with various accessories can be perfect strategy to cozy living room until you really find what you fancy.
Including Eclectic Collections
Display grouping of items such as photos or art in various picture frames on a certain wall for a more eclectic enhancement to your living room, which can be perfect idea. You need to paint all of the frames with the same tone before you hang them, or, for a more variety, half of them one tone, half another. Be sure to arrange the grouping on the space floor first so as to make sure that you are happy with the appearance before you start attaching them to your wall. The other items such as vintage wood cheese containers and light wooden crates can also be used as both the décor elements and a makeshift shelving. You can use wall anchors when you repurpose items as the shelves to help them to handle the weight of your books or other pieces of decoration.
Deciding on the Focal Point
You need to determine the focal point of the space. You may choose the entertainment center, the piece of your furnishing or your fireplace. Set your chosen piece at certain end of the space. Make sure that you also arrange the rest of the furniture to complete the existing focal point.
Arranging Conversation Spot
Well living room is always about conversation. You need to arrange your conversation area opposite the chosen focal point. That could be two small chairs or sofa with table set nearby. Pull the chairs out form your walls at certain angle which faces each other. If you plan to line all your furniture up against the walls, the rooms will take on some sort of boxy looking which will emphasize the small scale. You definitely need to define your conversation area by setting an area rug right under or just in front of the sofa or chairs. Keep the shades in your area rug soft, therefore making it free from dividing the space. Another point to note is how to place the chairs or sofa. You need to put extra chairs or sofa in a way that can complement the existing arrangement. You need to be able to seat around 5 to 6 people.
Choosing Lighting Scheme
Lighting is indeed essential in small living room since it can give the illusion of the area. Have 3 sources of lighting, at least, such as floor lamps, table lamps, overhead lighting and also windows. You can use mirrors to reflect light and, as always, get the illusion of more spaces.
