When it comes to living room design ideas and decorating, the options are very nearly limitless. Although that can feel a little intimidating, it’s also extremely exciting. How do you want to spend your time in your living room? After a long day, do you want something Zen and calming to retreat to? On a regular basis, do you want to accommodate guests with something bright and startling?
Whether you’re simply going to kick back and read a book or binge-watch movies, you’ll want a cozy little spot conducive to whichever activity you choose. It must be a space that is constantly ready, on a whim, to receive family and friends.
To suit numerous lifestyles and households, we rounded up some of the best living room design ideas for you.
Use Furniture That’s Multipurpose
Multipurpose furniture can be a lifesaver, especially if your living area is on the small side. Choose furniture that is multifunctional and beautiful. Your living room won’t require a lot of furniture, so it will cost you less.
Let Nature Do The Talking
Need an area to help relieve stress? Natural elements are perfect. You’ll feel more relaxed the moment you walk into a room with natural materials in it. You can bring a little bit of the outdoors to the interior of your home through the use of various natural elements throughout your design.
You want to design an interesting living room, but you don’t necessarily have to count on your walls to convey that interest. Soften the walls with a pretty cream/off-white/white and allow whatever color you like to shine through with accents such as artwork, pillows, and furniture.
On the other hand, you may choose to go with neutral furniture and accessories to balance out a truly bold wall color. It’s all a matter of preference. Even if, on a regular basis, you like to swap out your décor and furnishings, help pull the room together through the use of neutrals.
On your living room walls, hang reclaimed or salvaged wood window frames. They don’t necessarily have to have glass through which to see the out-of-doors. They can be entirely decorative. To a living room wall or mantel, you can add a unique spin while creating a lived-in, cozy feeling with reclaimed window frames.
To add a decorative flair and make a space look bigger, consider adding mirrors. To add a little depth, you may choose to add a full-length mirror. You can add a full wall of mirrors of all sizes and shapes to really kick up your decor. Mirrors capture light from the windows and help brighten any room.
If your living room is lucky enough to have bay windows, you are indeed fortunate. To make these the star of your living room, you don’t have to put in a whole lot of work. Position a bench right under the window frame or create a simple reading nook.
Safe Space with A Conversation Circle
If a huge sectional couch won’t work because you have limited space, a conversation circle may be just what you need. Situate your seating options in a circular shape. Through the use of a design such as this, your living room will be the perfect space to spend quality time with friends and family, but also be perfect for some lively entertaining.
