The living room is that special place where friends of the
homeowners stay to chat and mingle. So it’s just logical
that the living room is one part of the house that has the
best decoration. And usually, families would like a cozy
living room space.
So, without further adieu, here are some tips on how to
make your living room one of the coziest part of your home
Sectionalize Your Living Room
Decide on which part of the living room to use as your
focal points in designing it. This tip is most useful to
people with large living rooms. The focal points are
important to be decided upon since it will make decorating
your living room a lot less tedious.
Get your creative juices start flowing through imagining
that your living room doesn’t have walls and divide it in
different function areas.
Choose Your Lounging or Hang Out Area
Where is the best place to hang out? After deciding on
which place to make as the hang out spot, start stuffing
it with eyecandy upholstery. Club chairs or large sofas
can do the work of making that area really conducive to
lounging. Ottomans or customized sectionals are great,
too, just as long as you have the budget, of course. Place
an armoire, too, for a more accented look for that
Choose Your Eating or Gaming Spot
One more way to make use of
another focal point is to make it a gaming or a snacking
area. Or you can make it a hobby spot. This would require
an activity table. Usually a large round one will do.
Then, place upholstered chairs with wooden chairs for an
informal touch. If you have high ceilings, you can suspend
a nice light fixture over the activity table. Don’t be too
stingy on lighting. Make that eating or crafts area as
well-lit as possible. You don’t want squinting and
groping. But make sure to use lamps or other light
fixtures that provide soft lighting. This type of lighting
should add a lot in making your living room really homey.
Accessorize Your Living Room
Place home decor accessories
that will make your living room even feel a lot cozier.
These accessories often include rugs or carpets, which are
good feet warmers and can totally help people feel comfy
when sitting on the floor. Large pillows can be great
additions, too, if you want to make visitors or your
family members feel more relaxed when sitting. Sofa throws
can invoke that rustic feel, too. You can also use curtain
panels to make windows look easier on the eyes. Coffee
tables are also great when used as focal points.
A fireplace can also be a great focal point to start
accessorizing with picture frames, especially really old
pictures and some mantels.
Plants can very easily summon that relaxed feel as they
don’t only provide fresh oxygen but can be great for
augmenting the aesthetic value of your living room. If you
are flowering plant person, there are a lot of choices of
flowering plants you can choose from. Hanging plants are
also nice living room accessories.
With all those living room decor ideas that will make
cozying up that very important space in your home, there’d
be lesser chance of making mistakes if you decide to start
decorating your living room now. Good luck and have fun!
