How do I decorate my living room?When it comes to living room design, there are really no hard-and-fast rules. When considering different living room ideas, you’ll want it to be a space that makes your family and guests feel comfortable, but is also functional for day-to-day living. When thinking about living room colors, most people have a tendency to go super neutral or boldly colorful in living rooms, but be careful of going overboard with either. If you go with neutrals for the big items, like sofas, armchairs and ottomans, then go a bit bold with decorative accessories — that way, you can easily swap out the small things when a new color scheme is in order. Likewise, if you want your sofa to be a statement piece then scale back the decor so they don’t fight for attention. Don’t forget about the mid-sized living room decorating ideas, like rugs and curtains, which can double as functional and decorative when done right. Lighting is also an important feature to consider when decorating a living room. Do you have the ability to do overhead lighting, or will you need to use table and floor lamps? Either one can be design features in themselves, as well as putting the spotlight on other decor you want to showcase. In your living room design, position lighting in accordance to any art you want to illuminate, and remember to have a well lit spot for reading-related activities. You can also change the light of the space by the paint color you choose; a room with little natural lighting will benefit from a light and airy color, while one with plenty of sunlight may have more leniency in color choice. What should dictate my living room design?Living rooms were originally intended to act as sophisticated settings for hosting and entertaining, while family rooms were used for more casual, everyday activities, like lounging, playing or watching TV. However, many homes today will only have one larger room that acts as both an entertainment and primary living space. If yours is the former, you’ll likely be utilizing it as a sitting room to have drinks and good conversation with guests, without distractions like television. As often shown in living room photos, a bar cart, formal furniture and an eye-catching focal point, such as a sophisticated fireplace and mantel, will help achieve this look and feel. On the other hand, if it’s your primary living space it should see more daily use, often functioning as a TV room, complete with sofa sectional, media console and gaming spot (that cleans up nicely for guests, of course!). In the end, think about your needs when considering different living room ideas; after all, a family with small children will likely need a playroom more than a formal sitting room. What kind of living room furniture should I have?Because living rooms can serve many purposes, you’ll want to be sure to incorporate a variety of different furniture pieces to cover all possible activities. When considering living room ideas, start with your space. If your home is generally tight on space, having plenty of shelves, cabinets or drawers will be crucial to accommodating any storage needs. Built-ins are the best way to do this, since they take up less space and are often customized to meet your needs, however they can run on the more expensive side. If built-ins aren’t part of your living room design ideas, start with the big pieces, like an entertainment center or TV stand to house any electronics and accessories, or a bookcase to keep books, picture frames and knickknacks in check. Plenty of living room furniture ideas use pieces in multiple ways, like a desk or table as a craft station or homework spot, and a window seat as a go-to reading or nap station. You will no doubt need some seating options incorporated into your living room design, which can range from small accent chairs to a big roomy sectional. Be careful of cramming a too-large sofa into a too-small space — it’s tempting to go big, but sacrificing walking paths or potential storage space is not always worth it. While there are a lot of different options in living room designs, you definitely want to have enough seating for those living in the house, plus an extra seat or two for the occasional guests. A place to put down drinks or snacks, like side tables or a coffee table, is a must. If you have the depth for it, an ottoman or coffee table where people can prop their feet up is always a welcome living room decorating idea, but skip out on this if the living room is on the narrow side and go for a deeper sofa instead. Whatever size your space is, there’s plenty of living room inspiration to choose from – to get started on your living room remodel, add living room pictures which spark creativity to an ideabook on Houzz.

Plan your perfect furniture arrangement with Arrange-a-Room! 6 of 20 Facebook Pinterest Pull Furnishings Together with a Rug Use a large area rug to unify a seating group within a larger space.

Watch and see how to make it happen. 8 of 20 Facebook Pinterest Enlarge the Space with Diagonals Placing the furniture diagonally gives a boxy room some flavor. The diagonal also creates a welcoming pathway into the seating group. Use the sofa and coffee table to establish the diagonal axis and arrange additional seating on the same axis. To subtly anchor the seating group to the room’s architecture, align the area rug with the fireplace wall.

Sectionals come in a variety of units, from armless chairs to love seats, ottomans, and chaises that you can combine to fit your space. The sofa in this living room is oriented toward the TV (not shown) and the extra seating is lightweight and can be easily rearranged to face the TV. 10 of 20 Facebook Pinterest Divide Large Spaces with Seating If your living room is the setting for large parties, bring intimacy and a comfortable sense of scale to the room by dividing it into two conversational groupings with a path between them. Placing one sofa with its back to this path underscores the separation between the two groups, as do the area rugs anchoring them. Plan your perfect furniture arrangement with Arrange-a-Room! 11 of 20 Facebook Pinterest Focus on the View An effective room arrangement starts with the focal point, the cornerstone of your living room design. Typically a fireplace plays this role, but in this contemporary cottage space, the view out the French doors takes center stage instead. Orient the main seating piece toward the focal point and arrange the secondary seating pieces around the main piece. In winter, the room could be rearranged to focus on the fireplace. 12 of 20 Facebook Pinterest Create Order with Symmetry Pairs of matching sofas, side tables, and lamps strike a perfect balance on each side of the fireplace in this contemporary living room. Symmetry imposes a sense of order on the space. 13 of 20 Facebook Pinterest Create Activity Zones In a large, open room, use furniture arrangement to divide the space into different activity zones. Here a table and chairs gather on one side of the room, providing a spot for informal meals or games. In the center of the room, a sofa, chairs, and ottoman form a conversational cluster anchored by a rug. 14 of 20 Facebook Pinterest Use Chairs Instead of Sofas In a small living room, create a sense of greater space and openness with a collection of chairs instead of using sofas or love seats. The scale of these armchairs suits the smaller living room. 15 of 20 Facebook Pinterest Set Aside a Sunny Corner A pair of chairs with a set of stools converts this well-lit corner into a cozy spot for two. Whether you entertain large groups or small ones, providing guests with paired seating helps ensure that everyone will have at least one conversational partner. Plan your perfect furniture arrangement with Arrange-a-Room! 16 of 20 Facebook Pinterest Arrange in an L Shape In this large living room, a sofa and a love seat form an L framing a large coffee table. This simple arrangement provides a convenient conversational cluster. A single chair at the other side of this group can easily be moved closer to the conversation grouping. 17 of 20 Facebook Pinterest Create Quiet Spot in a Bay Turn a bay window into a quiet spot for two with a pair of comfortable chairs and an ottoman. Provide the chairs with a table and lamp so you’ll have light for reading and a place to rest a cup of tea. 18 of 20 Facebook Pinterest Snuggle Up to the Fireplace The fireplace is the natural focal point of a living room. Flank each side with seating, whether it’s two sofa or a sofa and pair fo chairs, and place a large coffee table in the middle. 19 of 20 Facebook Pinterest Offer Casual Seating If you’re more likely to lounge in front of the fireplace than sit on a sofa, keep a supply of oversize floor pillows and ottomans on hand. Ottomans can move where you need them for seating, or they can stand in as side tables. 20 of 20 Facebook Pinterest Next Slideshow Living Rooms with Open Floor Plans Living Rooms with Open Floor Plans Desired for their hospitable no-walls concept, open living room designs present a few decorating challenges.
