Living Room Livin’
We spend a lot of time in our living room. It is a space in your home where many things happen. Living rooms have the ability to become a coffee shop when you have the girls over for coffee or even a club when your 13-year-old hosts her first dance party. Heck, it may even be the place your potential son-in-law asks for your daughter’s hand in marriage!
Creating a space that is not only functional is essential for your living room. Your living room needs to accommodate a cosy amount of people comfortably and should do so stylishly.
Layout and Furniture
The layout is important in a room where the family gets together regularly. It is a good idea to divide the room into sections, especially if the room is multifunctional. The furniture you choose for your living rooms needs to be versatile too. Versatility allows you to update small sections of your living room without having to change everything else. Choose timeless furniture that will work with your space for years to come.
Your living room is a room where people of different ages will enjoy the space. One may be watching TV, another could be doing homework and a little could be utilising the space for some tummy time too. This means you need to create a space that keeps these family members into consideration.
Do you invest in a long leather couch for movie nights? Is there a study nook and soft carpeting to accommodate the whole family? Take your needs into consideration when you are creating a living room space that you will utilise to its max.
Choosing what goes on your walls is really important. Something that many homeowners skimp on is good art. Now good art does not have to be expensive and you should shop around and see what works best in your space. From large abstracts to framed artworks of your kids’ art from when they were little can surprisingly look amazing.
If you are looking for something special choose an artwork that you would not mind seeing every day. You can also find great prints by talented illustrators and collage artists for a fairly good price online.
