Living room is the place for your family and friends to sit, visit, relax and enjoy, so it should be comfortable and inviting. Moreover, your living room is probably the first room you see when you enter your house. The living room is a multipurpose room that can serve as a playroom, a dining room, a reading room, a sitting room or a TV room.
Here are some ideas that might help you decorate your living room that can make it comfortable as well as accommodate all of the events that take place there.
Place your furniture in such a way that you can move easily without tripping. Moreover, your seating arrangements in the living room should face the focal point of the room whether it is the television, fireplace, or the garden view from the window.
If your living room is big you can divide it into areas for various activities that take place in it, such as dining, gossiping, media viewing, reading and playing. On the other hand, if your living room is small, your furniture should be versatile and multi-functional so it can be used for more than one purpose. Choose furniture pieces with additional storage space such as tables with drawers and shelves, a sofa that can be transformed into bed. It is functional and fashionable.
Lighting in the living room is very important. So, try mixing floor lamps, table lamps, maybe chandeliers and pendent lamps and/or wall sconces. Table lamps are important for task lighting. Floor lamps are great for adding light where there’s no table surface and they’re often used in corners. Chandeliers and pendent lamps can give a nice overall glow to the space and draw the eye upward. Wall sconces are great for adding a little soft light to the living room. They are a decorative source of lighting rather the main source of lighting so you should use other sources of light as well.
You can also add a dimmer switch to every single light in the room. With it you can soften or brighten the light. It can totally change the mood in the room and they are not very expensive.
