Your living room is a part of the house that sees a lot of use, from daily relaxing to entertaining guests. This means that living rooms need to be practical, comfortable, and eye-catching. Thankfully, you can make your living room beautiful for guests without sacrificing comfort or function.
Put Up a Decorative Fire Screen
If you have a fireplace, a decorative fire screen is a great way to add an interesting and unique bit of artwork to your living room. The variety of designs and styles available helps you find one that fits your taste well, from nature scenes to swirling patterns. Your guests will never have seen anything like it!
Create a Focal Point
Many homeowners inadvertently make their TV the focal point of their living room. This is understandable, as it’s part of the living room’s function, but it detracts from the room’s design. Purchasing a stylish TV cabinet is an easy fix; it hides the TV when it’s not in use and serves as a focal point for the room. You can also create a focal point around a fireplace or a gallery wall.
Color is making a big comeback in 2019 designs; while it’s still smart to have the majority of your walls a light neutral color, rooms that only contain shades of white and gray are boring when it comes to design. If you’re feeling bold, consider a colorful sofa, such as navy blue, mint, or forest green. You can also add pops of color with pillows, throws, area rugs, and other decorations such as lamps or plants. If you have a green thumb, you can even put a big plant at one end of your sofa.
While most of these tips are relatively small items that you can add to your existing living room, together they’ll make a huge difference in the overall look of your living room. Best of all, they’ll do this without compromising how comfortably your family can use the space on a daily basis.
