If you aren’t a professional interior decorator, it can be challenging to figure out how to bring out the best of any living space.
As your living room is arguably the most important in the home, with everyone congregating here to enjoy time with family and friends, focusing on it first before decorating other rooms, is a great place to start.
Then when changing up other rooms you can make them connect in some way so that your home doesn’t end up looking disjointed, or choppy.
If you’re planning on selling your home, a recent survey by the National Association of Realtors found that staging the living room for potential buyers was the most important space, highlighting just how important it can be for a home’s overall look.
These interior additions can tie your living room together to make it especially appealing.
A New Color Scheme
One of the most difficult parts of tying the living room, or any room together, is the color scheme. It plays an essential role in making it look complete.
Choose the main color to bring all the elements of the space together – you might use one of the colors from your couch design for example, and then add a few decorative items, throw pillows and the like that contain the same color.
Lighting is also a key factor in any room. There are so many different options, from floor lamps with flair or twin table lamps that can help brighten up end tables.
The various shades provide even more decorating choices. You might try lighting fixtures with a finish that coordinates with door hardware while bringing light into space.
Accent mirrors can make a significant difference in your living room as well. They can break up a boring white wall as well as help make the space look and feel bigger than it is.
Photos and Artwork
Wall art, from paintings to a series of photographs, is a great way to make a personal statement and can be an essential part of any decorating scheme.
The most important factor in choosing art is that it’s something you really love. It also helps if it follows a particular theme, to avoid making the walls look too busy.
Area rugs can really help complete a room by tying all the various pieces together. You can use one to anchor the space, adding warmth and layer to the décor, or several to create more variety.
It’s important to use different sized rugs to finish this look adding rugs that are the same size can visually cut your living room into two – there are some great rugs online that can help make it easier to find the perfect option to complement your furnishings and décor.
