Living room is an integral part of a house where much of our life happens. It is a room meant for relaxing, reading, watching TV, playing games, spending quality time with family, meeting up people, partying, entertaining guests and so much more. The living room must have the right furniture, appealing interiors and the right flooring and roofing. It can be decorated based on the style, function, theme and color of the interiors.
Having comfortable furniture is very important for a living room for one to sit and relax. Modern and contemporary furnitures like sofa bed, Ottoman, recliners, upholstered furnitures, curio cabinet, side/coffee table, rugs etc give a grand appearance to the living room and make it look stylish and attractive.
They change the mood of the living room. A focal object like the fire place, window or television can be decided and furniture can be placed around that. Furnitures should be placed according to the space and lay out of the living room. Placing heavy and big furnitures in a small space will give a cramped and suffocating look to the living room.
Accessories like paintings or travel souvenirs must be placed at the right location and in the right furniture. Lighting in the living room must serve two purposes – provide lighting to the room as well as serving as a decorative item. LED bulbs, corner table lamps, chandeliers, fancy pedestal light, wall scones, floor lamps, pendent lights fixed in the ceiling are in vogue. Rustic furnitures and wooden false ceilings give a vintage and yester year look to the room.
They also keep the room warm and cozy which is very apt for the winter season. Wooden walls with wooden ceilings or wooden ceilings with concrete walls are a good combination for the living room. It gives a sophisticated as well as a cool look to the living room. Contemporary living rooms are in fashion today.
