Home Decor Ideas For Living Room

by Admin on 12 March 2018

For many people, the living room is the heart of the home. It’s the place where your family spends most of their time, relaxing after a long day at work or lazing about on a weekend afternoon, and it’s often where you entertain guests, from a simple games night to a full blown cocktail party. As such, getting your décor right is a must. In the list below, we’ve shared some of our top home décor ideas:

  • Low Furniture
    Furniture that sits lower to the ground can help to keep an open floor plan feeling cosy and intimate. Another idea is to use area rugs to help define the individual ‘rooms’ within the space (one for the living room, one for the dining room and another for the kitchen).
  • Statement Rug
    The key to injecting subtle colour into the room lies at your feet – a patterned carpet can play up neutral furniture, whilst adding some similarly hued pillows to your couches can add another punch. Just remember not to go too outrageous or over the top.
  • Subtle Patterns
    Avoid becoming bored with the space by using calm colours with texture and pattern. Muted prints in a similar palette, for example, can keep an otherwise neutral room from coming across too bland. Keep in mind that this doesn’t really work with louder colours.
  • Sheer Curtains
    The quickest way to let sunlight into your living room is through the windows. Replace heavy fabric curtains with gauzy ones, ensuring that the drapes go all the way to the floor. To accentuate a tall ceiling, mount them about a foot above any windows or doors.

    Dark Accents
  • Why not look to the opposite end of the colour spectrum if you’re looking for a way to tie everything together? A moody blue, for example, can help to ground a living room surrounded by windows and light colours without overwhelming the space.
  • Cohesive Palette
    Many designers recommend using a ‘hero colour’ throughout every room of the home – not just the living spaces – to pull them all together. A palette that works really well for this is blue with grey and olive accents, which creates a casual, layered look.
  • Gorgeous Gallery
    You can achieve the drama of a major art piece without the matching price tag by displaying a tight grid of small frames. This generally works best if the subject in each frame is the same, however, we have also seen it done successfully with family photographs.
  • Perfect Symmetry
    When in doubt about home décor ideas, you cannot go wrong with choosing dual accents. From coffee tables, lamps, pillows, chairs and even frames, you will always achieve a balanced look that is just begging for people to come in and enjoy it.

We hope that you’ve found the above list of home décor ideas useful in coming up with a game plan for your living room. No matter how you intend to use the space, from relaxing with the family to entertaining, it’s important that the space has been setup with this in mind. And if all else fails, do not hesitate to seek the services of a professional interior designer.
