The floor takes up a significant amount of square footage and thus is one of the most high impact spaces in your living room. Ue one flooring material, such as wood or carpet, throughout your living room and adjoining rooms to visually expand the space and create flow with your design. In that same vein, avoid interrupting the eye with contrasting floor coverings. Use sofas and cabinets with legs, so the floor fades under the furniture rather than stopping suddenly at a wall of wood or fabric.
The ceiling is a surface that is often overlooked. By adding a splash of color overhead you can create a visually interesting contrast with your walls and make the space more dynamic. The effect can be subtle if you choose a muted shade, or you can brighten a white room with a bold color. If you have low ceilings, selecting a cool shade like blue or lilac will make them appear higher so you can fool the eye into thinking the room is bigger than it really is.
There are plenty of great living room decorating ideas to bear in mind. In smaller rooms, make the most of the space available by installing the televisions in a wall-mounted cabinet. Don`t go overboard on decoration, and try to manage the amount of seating space so that people can move around easily. Many people also like to include a decorative focal point like a mirror or painting to round off their rooms, giving a sense of harmony to the whole design. Flowers located around the room add to a light, organic effect. Balance and harmony are key at all times when designing a living room. Accessories can be the finishing touch to any living room, but how they are used depends upon the style being created. A modern or minimalist Scandinavian style living room will include a few accessories, but when they are used they really matter, so include stylish throws or rugs in moderation. The great thing about accessories is that they can be easily moved or completely replaced, so experiment to your heart`s content to create the perfect living room arrangement.
It depends upon the space that is at your disposal. When styling larger rooms, use of space is crucial. Strategic use of carpets, furniture and decoration can create spacious, balanced rooms that are a pleasure to spend time in. When dealing with cosier living rooms, it`s all about giving the impression of space. Select clever colour schemes for the walls, add textures with bricks or tiles, and find the right balance of furnishings to create somewhere that is relaxing but not cluttered. You can also fine-tune the mood created by the room—from exciting, vivid colours and decorations to cool, pastel tones that relax the mind. It`s up to the desires of the person styling the room. This is a vital question for creating the right atmosphere and mood. A living room is a space where people will spend plenty of time, so it makes sense to find exactly the right mood. For smaller rooms, white walls or pastel tones will be appropriate, Anything bolder can create a cramped impression. However, in larger living room designs, your creativity can run riot, with vivid colours and patterns. It all depends upon the style that is being implemented.
We see everyday the work of some of the most brilliant minds, designers and architects, that create out of nothing impressive living spaces and yet, we rarely think about their homes and how do they look like. So here we are, “sneaking” inside the house of a designer, Susan Drover from SAM Design and exploring her “imaginarium”.
Designers often place mirrors strategically in small places in order to make them feel larger. One of the most common small living room ideas is to hang a large mirror in a central location to create a focal point. To reflect light and add a nice ambiance, put it behind a light source such as a candle or pendant lamp. If possible, position a mirror across from your window so it will reflect the view and give the illusion of another window.
