Readers, you are long due for a tour of our living room. Yes, I have almost finished the redo, but there are a few little things that I just haven’t gotten to yet, and they are holding me up! I’m hoping to get everything finalized to share with you soon! But in the meantime, when Julie Austin asked to share a post on living room decorating ideas, I thought maybe I might get even more ideas for ours! HA! And I was most certainly right! Check it out…
The living room is called the living room for a reason. It’s that part of your home where you can just sit back and enjoy comfortable hours of leisure time with your friends and family. You can watch long hours of television on a snowy day even take a nap every day for some time.
Therefore, your living room should be a room which would display tons of comfort and an atmosphere of tranquility. Often we tend to confuse how we should go about decorating the living room with how we should not go over budget at the same time. Check out these 5 amazing ideas to decorate your living room as per your desire!
Contemporary color patterns are always fun. Home décor experts consider decorating the living room to be the best room in your home; you can get as creative as you want!
From wall hangings to decoration pieces; from bookshelves to furniture; you can experiment with it all. However, you need to make sure that the overall look of your living room does not go out of proportion, as this will get awkward.
Focus On Lighting
Since your living room is where you will be spending your leisure time; you need to focus on how the lighting should be placed in it. Often we tend to ignore this very important factor and our living room has a dark, gloomy appearance later on.
Placing a huge chandelier right in the middle of the living room is always a good idea as this would save the cost to buy many lamps or bulbs and gives a very royal look, as well.
Furniture Is Important
While decorating your living room; it’s most important that you choose the right kind of furniture items in it. One of the most useful ideas in living room decoration is to equip it with a rocking chair and a leather sofa set.
The sofa set can be either jet black or matte black in color and it look absolutely chic. Moreover, you can also include lovely coffee tables which can further add to the beauty of your living room.
Nothing can make a book lover happier than having a giant bookshelf in the living room. This means that you can give yourself a delightful treat if you are thinking about decorating your living room and on top of that; adding a book rack to it.
Over the recent years; conventional book racks and shelves have been replaced with some amazing designs which look incredibly gorgeous and can be best complimented if available in the same color as of your furniture.
Touch Of Green
Never forget to add a little tinge of green element in decorating your living room as this would give your room the perfect look that it deserves. Potted and succulent plants look beautiful when placed on the study table or a place in your living room where you sit and relax near the window.
Moreover, adding a green touch to your living room will also give it a clean and fresh ambiance.
