Decorate a Living Room with Creativity and Practicality

Decorating a living room takes planning. Starting with a budget helps a homeowner determine how much money is available to design and purchase quality furniture and accents. Hiring an interior designer is a luxury for those who can afford it. Emptying a room of existing furniture helps the designer uncover the room’s potential. With a blank space, the owner may measure the living room’s dimensions and imagine the possibilities for its transformation.

Start with a grand idea

Find a piece of art or furniture that you love. Choose something large to help set the room’s tone, such as a sofa. The first addition a homeowner adds to the room jumpstarts the rest of the design. It inspires complimentary elements, colours, and accents. Take into consideration the room’s layout and consider the next step in the design process.

Choose elements carefully

In a living room, the rug adds colour and compliments the furniture. Deciding on the rug’s fabric is also important to the overall theme. Purchasing a wool rug for high-traffic areas is a practical decision, ensuring the room design meets the needs of the home’s residents.

It’s vital to pick cross-functional pieces, which combine style and function to enhance the look and livability of the room. For example, a sofa bed easily turns the living room into a guest bedroom for holidays or special occasions. Adding ottomans, side tables, and photographs transforms the empty space into a place to call home.

Decorating a living room takes a bit of cash and a lot of planning. Perfectly melding the owner’s style with the appropriate furniture, colours, and accents is a monumental task. Over time, the empty space will take on the character of its owners. Reimagining the living space is an opportunity to express inner creativity into a masterful work of art that combines shape, form, colour, and functionality into a welcoming place to live.
