A room has a vertical dimension as well as a horizontal one. If your living room has a high ceiling, make the most of the extra space by decorating it in a manner that draws the eye upward. Floor-to-ceiling drapes are a stylish way to accomplish this goal. Another idea is to fill the vertical space with a menagerie of small to midsize artwork. This technique will make the room feel larger than it actually is, because it invites the eye to roam beyond the eye-level horizontal space that may feel confined. When you shop for furniture, consider its visual weight. This concept refers to the perceived heaviness of an object based on size, color and design. Pick out pieces that have a lightweight appearance, as heavier ones will seem to constrict a space.
It`s very funny how we usually wander with our minds, imagining all sorts of beautiful places: from spacious luxury homes with breezy patios, to NY lofts with a particular bohemian flair or small compact Scandinavian apartments with a sharp sense of style.
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.
No matter how many ways you use your space or how many times each year you change out your tchotchkes, you can find living room ideas in the collection of inspiration pieces we`ve gathered and shared below. From ultra-formal to ultra-comfortable, your living room can become the blank slate upon which you introduce your home`s design.
Floor types range from stone to wood and tiles, although many people also like to cover the floor entirely or partly with a carpet. A rug or carpet will create a surface that is deliciously soft for the feet during the colder months. In cooler climates, it`s a great idea to have a soft furnishing to add some extra comfort. However, wood can be fabulously elegant and classy alongside the right furniture. If you don`t mind a little polishing every now and then, a high quality wooden floor could be perfect in your living room. This depends mainly upon the mood that you want to create within your living room. However, for people who may be moving home in the future or who often experiment with interior design changes, a minimalist style living room may be ideal. That way, it will be simple to rearrange your living room when the time comes. For families, nothing is quite as welcoming and relaxing as a well furnished and spacious classic living room, while couples and young people may adore modernist living room designs for entertaining their friends.
