Ever thought your living room is missing something? Consider these factors when shopping for your ideal living room.
Firstly, having movable seating is key. Who doesn’t love a swivel chair? It can face the sofa for a more social setting, the TV, or even looking out a window. Another option is a small ottoman that can be placed under tables or desks; great for bringing them out just when you need them.
Next, what is your focal point? Arrange your furniture around the focal point to create conversation areas.
For example, a decent sized area rug can be a great center piece, where furniture can be placed all around it. This way, your sofa doesn’t always have to be pushed up against a wall or squished in a corner. The focal point can also be a fireplace, big screen TV or work of art. If possible, try to accommodate the room to seat at least 6 people.
Also, the more you mix and match geometric shapes with organic ones, the more interesting the design of your space will turn out! Come up with a creative solution for your home with these selections from Decorium!
Lastly, don’t forget about lighting. Stray away from sticking to one pot light overhead. Add select lighting for reading, watching TV and parties.
