What defines a great living room? We’re sharing some ideas so you can turn your living room into a stylish, comfortable and functional space you’ll love.
The Style in your Living Room:
Evaluate your space – what’s missing in your living area? Is it lacking colour? Is it bare, or is there too much going on? Does it simply need some new décor accessories, or do you need to revamp the whole area by investing in new furniture?
If your walls are lacking a bit of personality, why not splash a bit of paint on them. Painting is an inexpensive way to dramatically change the vibe of your home. With hundreds of colours to choose from, your wall colour palette can help set the mood of your space and everything within it.
Rotating and changing accessories can breathe new life into your home. The easiest way to do this is by looking at the home décor pieces you already own, rearrange them or move pieces from other rooms into your living room.
If you have dollars to spare, look at purchasing statement pieces for your living room that reflect the personalities of those who use the space. Have fun with your selection, buy pieces you love – personality is what makes a room so try incorporating pieces that reflect your individuality.
Think about comfort and texture – consider a new rug. The right floor rug can add visual impact to a room and create a warm welcoming vibe. Swapping out a rug is an easy way to make any room feel brand new.
The Comfort and Functionality of your Living Room
The living area is one of the most important rooms in your home. This is where you relax after a long day, spend quality time with family, and entertain your guests – making your seating arrangement ever so important. You want your living room seating to encourage conversation, so this may mean two or three sofas, or a corner couch. Your seating requirements are all dependant on your space!
Having a comfortable and stylish lounge suite is important, but choosing the perfect option to suit your interior style and lifestyle can be challenging. Here are a few of our favourite designs for the home:
