When deciding on the décor for the living room there’s a lot to take into consideration. The whole space is changing and this creates an interesting vibe and, in addition, can be frustrating because of the details such as the furniture, the colors used or the combinations of colors. So here are a few tips that might come in handy:
Measure the space.
Before you get to choosing the furniture, measure the space and decide whether or not this layout needs to be functional. The living room could also be a very comfy gathering space if a cozy sofa or a cute daybed were placed here.
Choose balanced lines.
It’s important for a living room to be designed with balance in mind and that means certain measurements have to be taken. Displaying too many colors or too many textures can create the impression of a mixed styles décor. You can either find inspiration in the images or in something else. This living room has an overall balanced and harmonious décor.
The sofa and the TV.
When placing the TV on the wall, consider also keeping the rest of the décor simple and neutral. A balanced design would include few colors, neutrals and materials and wouldn’t allow too much color for the rest of the elements. In this case, the TV wall sits on a raised platform, with two armchairs placed on either side.
When choosing the seating, keep an eye for the size of the room. You might want to also go for a corner sofa, add two square coffee tables or an ottoman, depending on the size of the room and the desired style. You can alternate side tables or ottomans placed opposite to the TV or chaise lounge.
The seating options.
If you want to be able to easily switch the décor of the living room into a more formal setting, then a simple design would be best. In this case there are several options to choose from.
Depending on your style, the décor and your personal preferences, you might have to consider getting expandable chairs or adjustable armchairs. Then, if you want to add some functional features, you can adapt the furniture to your needs and preferences.
