A living room is the nerve centre of the entity called home. This is where you create memories as a family, fondly engaging in conversations that will bring back lovely memories as you recollect the days gone by. The place needs to be warm, comforting and inviting with a vibrancy that always refreshes you. Arranging it the best way can be a daunting task and you’ll probably discover the best way to arrange it in months or may be years to come. But there a few cheat rules that never fail:
There are no rules when it comes to a perfect layout. It is all about discovering what works best for your gang at home. Experimenting your way through the room may be the best idea. The living room could have a reading nook or a TV unit or not depending on what you like to do together as a family. The idea is to understand the needs of the people living in the house and what gets the conversation flowing.
If you have a large family with varied interests, you could create different pads for people to make small groups. However, keep in mind that the furniture is movable so that you could make it a large cozy place to hang out together on special occasions.
More often than not, the entire furniture centers around a focus piece of furniture like a TV unit or a book shelf. However, you could add some quirk or personal touch and add an oversized painting or sculpture. If you have a green thumb then you could experiment with a green island of indoor plants. Arrange the sofa or ottomans or futons depending on the vibe of the place around the focal piece.
Use furniture that is not very eccentric unless yours is an adult-only household. Places with kid friendly or pet friendly furniture are generally more inviting and comforting. Make sure the furniture kept in different areas has some cohesive element with symmetry in size or color palette. If you are using eclectic furniture items, it is ideal to have a theme based setting where other décor elements are used to bring them together in harmony.
Complete the look with carefully curated and well placed accessories that reflect the personality of the house. Let the living room tell your story. Let it be engaging where conversations flow uninterrupted.
Happy Home Building!!
