Decorating the Perfect Living Room

by Dave Johnson Marketing for Tracey Andrews

The living room of any house is where many memories are made over the years. Whatever you style of preference, be it modern, formal, minimalist, or traditional, it is a room that you want to be both inviting and warm for your guests. Therefore, when it comes to designing this room, you will probably want to follow a few interior design pointers:

1.       Focal Point – Your living room will want a focal point. This is sometimes described as an anchor point where your eyes will be drawn to as you enter the room. This might be a television, fireplace, or large windows for example. There is also the option to have more than one focal point in the room, but this does need to be chosen carefully so they do not compete or conflict with each other.

2.       Arranging Furniture – All too often, you will see people just move the sofa up against the nearest wall and be done with it. The problem with this is that it’s not really conducive to being a room that invites great conversation. Here the trick is to position the furniture in a way to really does facilitate good conversation and warmth, and not just looking at the space available.

3.       Fabrics – Being a room where a lot of time is spent, choosing the right fabrics are key. With the prices of the different furnishings these days, it really is worth doing some planning here. Here we need to think about drinks being spilt, perhaps if you have pets, and what fabrics are more low maintenance and are easily cleaned.

4.       Declutter – One of the worst things you can do in your living room is to let it become a dumping ground. Having too much clutter is the easiest way to spoil the appearance of any room, and so this is where good storage options are key. Try to really limit what you need in the room first of all, and then secondly think of some nice storage options which work well with the style of the room, and of course don’t take up too much space.

5.       Colours – Picking a good colour scheme for your living room is also important. This can really affect the mood of any room, and so most people will opt for neutral and warm colours for their living room. However, this doesn’t mean your room needs to look boring. A good interior designer will help you choose some great colours for your room, which keep your room neutral, but look vibrant and warm too.  

Here we have covered just a few pointers for decorating your living room. Head over to Tracey Andrews Interiors to find out lots more.
