Living room layout is a fascinating area of interior design, because the living room is the place where we spend time entertaining, relaxing, and visiting with others. One of the most visible areas of the home, your living room can set the tone for the entire dwelling. The fact that this part of the house is so much fun to decorate is both exciting and potentially problematic. Why problematic? Because we often cram all of our favorite belongings into the space without considering how the pieces fit together.
In small spaces and wide open spaces alike, delineating room from room is another design challenge that can’t be ignored! How do you divide your space with style? If built-ins are an option, why not use the fireplace as a functional screen? Below we see a Brio Clear Red tile fireplace from Modwalls.
Fabric L shaped sofas can add a very warm, homely style to any living room. These plump, comfy looking sofas make the perfect accompaniment to a night in, be it a girl’s night, a family film night or even a lads’ football night!
A bookshelf can look cluttered. If you don’t need to access its contents on a regular basis, hang a large piece of art from the shelves, as shown in the next space designed by John Dransfield and Geoffrey Ross. Not only is this technique a great way to maximize limited wall space, it stylishly hides the shelf’s contents. In fact, try placing paperwork or other unsightly items behind the canvas!
They say a darker paint would look better than a lighter shade for a small room. This is because it would give a sense of depth to wall, thereby helping to create an impression that room is larger than it actually is.
Your living room will look modern with a few trendy touches and it will evolve together with your lifestyle into a complex interior design that will complement your personality. Use bold colours and earth tones to create a unique living room arrangement and do not hesitate when it comes to blending old furniture with modern influences.
