Designing your Living Room
The living room is usually the first space you see when you walk into your home, it should be warm and welcoming for your guests but most especially for you to enjoy. Whether you are moving into a new home or you just want to redesign your current space, we have some helpful tips for designing your living room space.
MEASURE: First things first, measure your space! When buying or arranging furniture, there must be enough room to keep your space from being too crowded or cluttered.
FUNCTIONALITY: For seating, such as sofas and chairs, make sure you can comfortably seat your family and any regular guests, while keeping the size of the furniture in mind. Remember you don't want to overcrowd your space but you also want each furniture piece to be functional and practical. For example if you need storage but have a small space, find a lift top coffee table that has a compartment for storage.
STYLE: Don't be afraid to mix furniture pieces, adding different sizes and styles adds character to any space. If you are wanting to keep pieces for years to come, selecting neutral colors will allow you to simply change out accessories as trends change, keeping your pieces timeless.
LIGHTING: Always add lighting to cozy up your space! Adding floor lamps and table lamps brighten and warm your living room for a welcoming environment.
PLAN: Plan out your design. Figure out which furniture pieces you need and what your space allows for. Find out which style you gravitate towards and look for inspiration.
