The living room is one of the most important rooms in the home because the entire family spends a lot of their time there. Of course, it needs to be comfortable. How do you achieve that comfort? It’s not about the size of the room, but the right choice of furniture and all the little things that give it a personal stamp.
That is why the space needs to be balanced between function and comfort, and we will show you some of the basic rules you that you mustn’t neglect.
- Covers work very well on sofas. They make them more comfortable, more beautiful, and more interesting.
- Group furniture together. It should never be placed at a large distance between itself, because shouting across the living room certainly isn’t desirable. So, group the sofa, armchairs, and chairs in one place and create a socializing space.
- There are hundreds of things that can take the role of the tabouret. The Art Deco style has made the tabouret a central part of the living room, and today this fashion has come back big time.
- Books can be very relaxing in the living room, if they are arranged properly. That is why you should use books as an element that is familiar and fond to everyone, but in a way that they don’t make a mess. Group them on your walls, shelves, and tables.
- Lighting is very important in the interior, so it is desirable to use lamps, and it is best to place them in all four corners to get a circle of lighting. The space will be more comfortable when you use lamps that give a soft and comfortable light.
- Personal or family photographs make the living room more intimate. That is why it is recommended to placed a group of photos on the table or on the commode, even on the piano if you have one. You can also simply hang them on the wall using the right frames.
- Short, medium, and long curtains complete the entire space, giving it a final stamp. Long curtains also stop the leakage of heat, so they are good for your wallet too.
- Knick-knacks are great for the living room, and great for any space, but they should be used with caution. Moderation is maybe a better word. These small things, if placed properly, and in the right amount, can really create a sense of comfort in your living room, something you’re looking for. But finding the right ones is not easy. The best way to go would be to choose the ones that at first glance you think will work great in the space, and then halve their number.
- Carpets can really determine your style. They can be an important thing in the space that will really put the finishing touch on the space. Match it with the materials and the colors of your furniture, and then with your curtains, or blinds if you have them. Once you do that, you can be certain that you’ve made the right choice.
