The living room is like the heart of the home, and if your living room isn’t well decorated, then none of your house decoration will make much of a statement. The style is personal, but there are some rules, some dos and don’ts that make up the theory of house décor, and here in specific, a living room’s décor. You have a plethora of options to select from; I’ll just provide with some cues, a small list of what you may adapt to style your space impeccably. I hope you find this read interesting, off to the bullet points now!
- Float the furniture. I don’t mean fill-your-living-room-with-water-and-then-float-the-furniture (that would be creative). Centralize your furniture placement, if there is space between the walls and your living room the area would look much more spacious. This advice especially caters to the need of those who have smaller living room areas to décor. This trick works like magic, try and see for yourself.
- Paint the walls in lighter hues and tones, go for beige walls. A powder blue would look amazing with cane sofas arranged around a coffee table in front of a fireplace. Let your imagination flow; choose all warm and light colors because winter is approaching and light colors combat the grayness of weather very well. You can also use light shaded and embossed wallpaper, whatever suits your needs the best works!
- A pop of color here and a dash of glitter there don’t hurt. Especially if it’s a lady reading this article, show off your personality’s feminine aspect by adoring the shelves with glitter filled mason jars or anything shiny with a tinge of bling. You should also add loads and loads of throw pillows in bright shades and patterns to make space appear comfy and rather lively.
- Pick your lights wisely; you want them to compliment your rest of décor. Mostly, in my living room, I have lights hanging from the ceiling because the area is small and hanging lights draw the attention up the wall thereby utilizing the space and making the room appear wider. If you’ve got enough space, you can consider buying a lamp that can be placed on the floor.
- Add mirrors to space. They look great and give an illusion of a wider and much larger room than you already have. The reason is, mirrors reflect light, so they are a natural enhancer of luminosity. If you mount a mirror strategically, such as on opposing wall of a window it will reflect the window and create an illusion of two windows. Mirror hacks are the best hacks to apply to living room décor.
- Use furniture that isn’t useless. Such as an adjustable standing desk. Articles like this are multi-purpose, and they end up serving you in many ways from domestic use to a child’s play table. The list of uses are endless, and this one’s made of prime quality so you won’t be disappointed.
I hope you liked the advice.
