When designing your living room, you should focus on creating a space that is meaningful and unique to you and your family. It’s important to first consider some factors to visualize a living room that is personal and yours. This includes figuring out if there is a focal point in the room, the intended use of the room, what your color scheme is, and what your style is. Once those questions are answered, you can make your vision a reality.
Flooring and walls to frame the room
A fun idea is to paint three of the walls one color, and the last wall as an accent wall. The same can be applied to your floors. Hardwood floors come in many stains and designs such as parquet and medallions that can be a focal point. Also depending on the stain and placement, it can help the room seem larger.
Try and make use of natural light
If you are aiming to make your room look bigger, light colors will help reflect any natural light. The use of satin paint instead of matte will also help reflect light in the room. You can also include mirrors, metals, and wood floors to reflect the light.
Pick out the color scheme
This can be done from items you have already used. For example, if you chose your focal point as a piece of art on your wall, you can incorporate some of the colors used in that painting throughout the room.
Place your furniture strategically
This is all decided based on the shape and size of the room, the focal point, and lighting. Try to make 3-foot paths between the furniture so it’s easy to maneuver. Also, do not block any areas that have a lot of traffic, like in a doorway.
