When it comes to living room design, there are really no hard-and-fast rules. When considering different living room ideas, you’ll want it to be a space that makes your family and guests feel comfortable, but is also functional for day-to-day living. When thinking about living room colors, most people have a tendency to go super neutral or boldly colorful in living rooms, but be careful of going overboard with either. If you go with neutrals for the big items, like sofas, armchairs and ottomans, then go a bit bold with decorative accessories — that way, you can easily swap out the small things when a new color scheme is in order. Likewise, if you want your sofa to be a statement piece then scale back the decor so they don’t fight for attention.
Elegance is born with simplicity. Still, simplicity doesn’t mean a single chair or table per room; but a well-analyzed design strategy; and minimal clutter. Keeping things simple is not only good for your space-it is also good for your mood; and for reducing stress as much as possible. While we’re still discussing simplicity, we should not undermine the importance of your color schemes. The main rule is to use a neutral palette based on white, black, and eventually beige. The rule applies both for walls and furnishing, and it is the most powerful guideline in order to attract attention.
Because living rooms can serve many purposes, you’ll want to be sure to incorporate a variety of different furniture pieces to cover all possible activities. When considering living room ideas, start with your space. If your home is generally tight on space, having plenty of shelves, cabinets or drawers will be crucial to accommodating any storage needs. Built-ins are the best way to do this, since they take up less space and are often customized to meet your needs, however they can run on the more expensive side. If built-ins aren’t part of your living room design ideas, start with the big pieces, like an entertainment center or TV stand to house any electronics and accessories, or a bookcase to keep books, picture frames and knickknacks in check.
