The living room is where most interactions happen. It acts as a reception for guests. It’s where we relax after a long day at work and watch TV. It is therefore undoubtedly the most important room to consider when decorating a house. Decorating your living room should display who you are as a person or as a family. Here are 5 simple ways to make your living room stand out.

choose a color scheme

A color scheme cannot be chosen using a formula. What emotions do you want to elicit? Warm colors like orange and yellow trigger feelings of happiness, optimism, and energy. Cool colors (green, blue, and purple) evoke feelings of calmness, security, and trust.  Black symbolizes power, luxury, and mystery, whereas white denotes minimalism and simplicity. Consider colors that reflect your personality. Make certain that the colors you choose complement one another. You can find free color wheels on the internet. Do your research, use apps like Pinterest, and come up with the best color scheme.

Choosing furniture

Furniture is also an important aspect of the living room. It takes up the most room. The furniture should not only fit your home but also allow for movement. Before buying, make sure you have the correct measurements. When it comes to quality, don’t compromise. Set a budget and make sure to shop around for the best deal. Choose a color that complements your color scheme. I would suggest using neutral colors and choosing a material that is also easy to maintain. Above all, choose furniture that is warm and welcoming.

Lighting

We have natural and artificial lighting. They are both significant. In a living room, lighting not only improves mood but also increases safety. Lighting also brightens up dark rooms. Always measure to ensure that lighting fixtures fit properly. Consider the weight as well. Designer Billy Ceglia suggests that if it’s light and airy, it’s best to size up, whereas if it’s dark and massive, sizing down is a better option.  Lighting can be a focal point in your living room too. Chandeliers, for example, can serve this purpose. Experiment with what works best in your living room.

decorative items

These are esthetically pleasing items you can add to your house to make it look exquisite. The items you choose should fit and blend in with the space in terms of color and texture. Choose unique and quality items to bring that elegant aura. Décor items include:

  • Mirrors
  • Rugs
  • Plants
  • Wall art
  • Clock
  • Books

The bottom line

When it comes to the living room, collect items that are unique to you, and your home will become a story. A house’s items should communicate with one another, as well as respond to and balance one another. Above all, let your living space mirror your style and taste.
