Your living room is probably where you spend most of your time. So, naturally, it is the room you want to make the most attractive. Fortunately, there are a few tricks you can try:
You don't need to be a great designer to make your living room more attractive. Yet a fresh coat of paint or wallpaper, an artistic approach and playing with light will make it a relaxing oasis.
Living room furniture sets are excellent for aesthetic quality. Units, tables and storage are often matched. But you can even go as far as matching your sofa, rugs and artworks for a particular style. For example, elegant furniture elements like stone, marble and wood screams luxury. Yet you might want a minimalist look. Matching and functional storage solutions let you hide almost everything for an ultra-modern and clean aesthetic. However, it is best to decide on a style, stick with it, and try not to mix and match without carefully considering it first.
A fresh coat of paint, trending wallpaper or comfy carpets or flooring can completely transform your living room. For example, colour blocking adds a touch of contemporary elegance. This is a simple trick by painting your walls and trimming the same hue. Because there are no contrasting colours, you can explore with bolder colours which will appear lighter than they actually are. Colour blocking also adds to shifting focus from intruding architectural elements to your living room furniture and decorative items and fittings.
An interior design secret is to never fit curtains and drapery too short for your windows. This can make your living room look cheaper and out of date. Longer curtains and voile fittings scream elegance as they flow naturally over or beside your windows. For an even better effect, try hanging your drapery higher than usual by moving the rail upwards, so the curtains hang just above the flooring. The trick is to make a grand impression by making your windows look larger than they are. Additionally, longer curtains trick the eye into thinking there is more natural light.
Further to natural light, artificial light plays a significant role in making your living room look more attractive. Unfortunately, wiring lights into your home can be expensive. However, you can install plugin wall lights and dimmers. Recessed lighting adds a function, while lamps and sconces provide ambience. Additionally, you can control smart light bulbs with your smartphone, tablet or AI assistant like Alexa. With apps, you can also create lighting profiles featuring tones and colours for creating a glamorous layered lighting system across the room, whatever your mood.
The subjectiveness of art means no one can tell you what pieces you should and should not include in your living room. However, large pieces can add depth and a feeling of more space. Additionally, it's helpful to find pieces that add a little texture to the room and contrasting colours. Popular articles for a living room include water and mountain paintings that convey a feeling of calm energy. Elemental artwork, such as earth and water, helps you feel closer to nature within the confines of your home. In short, you feel warm and safe.
