You recently visited one of your friends and you were mesmerized the way her living room looked. You came back home and sat in your dry, dead living room thinking of ways how to renovate it to look very interesting and appealing. This is a common scenario that we may have witnessed in our lives at some point of time. Decorating the living room in the house and making it one of the best-looking places in the house is on everybody’s mind. Because the living room is one area where you sit with family and friends and spend a lot of time in a day, you would definitely want the place to speak the language and style of the family.
How to decorate the living room? Is it a very costly affair? Do you need to visit the most expensive stores in the city to buy the most unique stuff for the room? The answer to these questions is simply “No”. Here are some very cost-effective design tips that will help your living room radiate vibrant energy and give away a life of its own. Living room designs are based on how big or small your room is, whether the room receives direct sunlight or is it placed in one of the dark spots in the house, and many such other aspects.
Your living room design should be one that makes the environment in the room very cozy, restful and friendly. The room should make people feel lively and at harmony always. For this, designing your living room in neutral, warm, pastel colors comes as a big help. Colors such as dull brown, cream, white, beige, etc. don’t fall heavily on the sys and give a sense of tranquility to the viewers. First decide the color of the walls and then choose the type of furniture you want to put in your living room.
A perfect, eye-appealing living room design comprises furniture that does not occupy a lot of space in the room. Go for sleek furniture and place the furniture close to the walls so that there is ample space in the room for walking. Place nice artifacts and show pieces on the side tables to give a lively look to the room. Adding flowers, aroma candles, etc. in the room also add a lot of life to it and help a great way in changing the complete ambience of the room.
Do you think of putting nice expensive wall papers in the living room to enhance its design? Don’t waste money on wall papers because they go dull very soon and give your room a dirty, untidy, shabby look then. Try wall hangings instead. Bright wall hangings on a pastel-colored wall do wonders to the overall look of the room. Coming to the flooring of your living room, wooden and carpet flowing is much in fashion now-a-days. Try something different from the age-old marble flooring. Getting a wooden or carpet flooring for the room enhances its design and such flooring is long lasting also.
These are certain ways in which you can liven up the living room design in your house and win complements from guests who visit your house.
