A living room is the most important part of a home from a décor angle. After all, it’s the one space that you entertain all your guests in and stand to leave a good or a not-so-good first impression on them.
Here are 8 tricks to optimize the space in your living room and enhance its overall appeal.
1. Use Neutrals In Small Living Rooms
Use light colors on the walls if you are dealing with a small living room. Light colors give a feeling of expanse and will lend your living room a warm and cozy vibe.
2. Use Vibrant Colors In Big Living Rooms
If you have a big living room, think of using vibrant colors like citrus, mustard, orange, and forest green to make your room appear lively! But do remember to balance it with neutral-colored furniture. You don’t want to go over-the-top with bright colors.
3. Create An Illusion of Height
Invest in low-level furniture, especially if you’re dealing with a small living room. This isn’t just a popular trend, but also gives an illusion of height, expanding the space visually.
4. Don’t Forget The Window Trims
Don’t ignore your window trims. Paint them in a contrasting color and see the look of the room changing!
5. Use Mirrors To Your Advantage
Mirrors are magical décor elements. They can beautify and expand a space instantly. Use them strategically, to make your space appear bigger and reflect beautiful accessories.
6. Make Sure Your Furniture Is Comfortable
Furniture is a big focal point in a living room. Make sure your furniture is as cozy as it is nice-looking. After all, it isn’t just the guests who’ll be spending time on your couch. Your comfort matters too!
7. Use Textures To Add Depth
You can liven up a living room done in neutral colors by adding depth and personality with textures, either as a textured wall, with sisal or jute carpets, or spreading baskets around to store knick-knacks.
8. Get Creative With Throw Pillows
Add a pop of color to your neutral couch with throw pillows in vibrant colors. And the best part? You can change their covers as often as you want to, changing the overall décor!
Happy decorating, folks!
