There’s no denying that the living room is meant for, well, living. A living room should be cozy and inviting to allow you to live comfortably. This all comes down to the design. An unappealing design can cause you or your family to not utilize the space. With this in mind, here are a few tips and tricks for creating a cozy living room.
A Sense of Home
Design the space to feature your taste. Make it comfortable for you. Factor in your likes, dislikes, and what you find aesthetically pleasing. Painting the walls a color you don’t love could result in you being unsatisfied with the space or find it unappealing. Place family photos through out to add a personal touch. Fill the space with your favorite items like books or flowers. Include a piece that brings you joy and peace!
Invite more people into the space with spacious seating. Utilize furniture for family, friends, and guests to gather and feel comfortable. Ultimately, a room that is welcoming has a sense of coziness. Furniture should be set up in a way that focuses on conversation. Sofas and chairs that face each other welcome interaction.
Helpful tip: Select a comfy couch to make the space even more inviting. Nobody can resist a comfy couch!
When it comes to decorating your space with artwork, it’s important not to go overboard. Over-cluttering a space can make it overwhelming and uninviting. Decorate one wall with multiple pieces of art to make a statement while the other walls are empty. An alternative to this is only placing two to three pieces of art or décor on each wall. Remember, select works of art that fit into the room’s color scheme to create a sense of harmony.
Think about what design will please you the longest and what will make YOU feel at home. After all, it’s your home and you deserve to be comfortable.
