Below are some ideas for decorating your living room, the room which is of course at the heart of the house.
The key aspect of designing this room is carefully planning your storage solutions to disguise everyday items such as newspapers and books that get left lying around. You should plan exactly where you need storage space and think creatively.
For example, when entering the living room the first thing you may see is the stack of mail on the coffee table. You could consider placing a console table in the lobby with a large box to store the mail and keep it hidden.
Highlight the strengths of the room. If we enjoy a magnificent view from the window, we should not mess with a curtain or shade that masks it. If you have a beautiful work of art, it is worth investing in a little light that shines on to it to make it stand out. Complex textures add interest to a contemporary living room and can create a more child friendly environment.
Organize your space according to the architectural structure of the room. For example, in small spaces, storage cabinets and racks are ideal as they create vertical and horizontal lines that enhance the feeling of space. They can also add a focal point to the room. Another tip is to imagine the room from the outside and try to rearrange the furniture from a wider angle. Instead of adding another chair, use an oversized Ottoman. When not in use as a seat, it will act as a decorative piece.
Simplicity: keep the colors and shades of window decorations simple. These elements may dominate a small space. Light colors will instead expand the space. A simple window diverts attention to the overall picture and not the lack of space whilst fine fabrics will merge with the walls.
Development: if a wall is large, a framework can be used that to lead the eye more. Using this same principle works for the hanging of art, especially when there is more than one piece. If the ceiling is high, a high shelf will focus attention to the space. Mirrors are also a great trick to increase the feeling of space.
