Your living room is one of the most important rooms and space where the family gathers or a personal space you get to relax comfortably in after a long day with your feet up. Every home owner expects new things in their home, but more often than not, space, budget and practicality gets in the way. Here are some tips on must-haves when you’re making decor plans for the living room.
Keeping a check on some of the essentials can go a long way in creating the perfect space, here’s what to consider:
Honestly, nothing beats indoor plants in the living room, and this is also one of the safest ideas for any kind of theme. All you need are plants that are easy to maintain, and you can add a lot of added charm for every corner. Indoor plants come in a variety of options for everyone, assuring amazing ideas for all homes. Indoor plants also add a splash of colours, especially when you have wooden furniture in a single tone.
Your living room isn’t complete without the basic personal touch. The whole point of custom homes and designer looks is to have a few personal elements in every space, and that’s something you should focus for the living room. From your collection of souvenirs to collages of pictures from worldwide travels, there’s a lot that you can work with. Try to keep the things in sync with each other, so that you can create a theme. You may add a few brighter elements to bring the right accents and mix of colors, especially around the summers.
From large and bold drapes to matching cushions and upholstery, there is a lot to experiment in the living room. Try to invest in a set of matching drapes and curtains, so that you can go for a synced look in every season. Summers can have brighter palettes like green, yellow, blue and orange, while fall shades are often muted and have dark tones. What’s great about furnishings is the amazing choice of trying something new every month, given that you don’t need to spend a fortune.
There are so many choices of accessories for the living room. There are lamps and lighting solutions, ways to express personality with frames, candles and smaller assortments. Then there’s colour schemes that can be clean or a mix of everything, just where do you start? We suggest picking out your favourite colours, picking out and displaying the things that make you happy when you look at it and remember the importance of reducing clutter. Anything you haven’t used especially in the last year, should be in the bag headed for Salvation Army.
