How to decorate your Living Room

The living room of one’s house is that room which reflects one’s taste and personality to others as it is the only room which is accessible to all one’s guests. An outsider gets an insight into the inhabitant’s personality through the living room which forms the first and an everlasting impression on people’s mind. Thus, one needs to take extra care and attention while decorating one’s living room so that the room itself can speak about its inhabitants.

A living room should be decorated in such a way that it looks simple yet classy and sophisticated. In an attempt to impress people, one should not overstuff the room with furniture or accessories as that would lead to a stuffy and an unprofessional look. The essential furniture found in living rooms is that of a comfortable yet trendy sofa set along with a centre table and side tables. The furniture should be placed and arranged in such a way that the room looks spacious but not empty. Along with being gracious and attractive, a living room has to be comfortable and livable. Thus, while furnishing, one should take care of beauty as well as utility function of the accessories.

The color pattern of your living room plays a great deal in enhancing its beauty. The color should be neither too light nor too dark and should go with the color pattern of your house and also with your furniture. The lighting effect of the room also plays an important part in adding to the beauty and effect of your house. One need not go in for fancy or bright lights. Instead a simple yet attractive lighting system can help in enlivening the living room. The room should present a peaceful and a harmonious look and not look chaotic. Thus, one should make use of only the necessary accessories so as to avoid overcrowding the room. Beautiful and sophisticated show-pieces and paintings can provide an aesthetic touch to one’s living room. One can use corner stands to place show-pieces on it. Similarly, one should carpet the room according to the color and pattern of one’s furniture and curtains.

A living room should live up to its name and should be enlivening and relaxing. The room together should provide a visually coherent look and should not look as if it is composed of different items of different tastes.
