When designing and decorating your living room, its important to ask yourself these questions.
How will people enter and exit?
How do I navigate this space?
Is there enough seating and will we be able to move around with ease?
Deciding on arranging your living room, then it is important that you follow the correct steps as they guide you to giving your living room the complete look. To start arranging your living room you should:
1. Creating a floorplan-The best way to start before decorating your space.
This will help you by making the best choices when it comes to the correct sizes and proportions of rugs, furniture pieces and decor items to fit into your desired space. When designing your space by using the proper guidelines it will play an important role in making the room feel balanced and in proportion and to be decorated within a more manageable time frame and to buy the correct pieces to fit into that particular space.
2. Find your focal point of your room
It could be your fireplace, a piece of artwork or the tv unit. By placing your furnishings around this point in your room will draw attention to this feature and this would be the main focus in the room. If you struggling to find one, create your own, let your coffee table serve as your focal point.
3. Scale using your decor
Decorate your areas with a mixture of different shapes, heights and sizes that will balance each other out. This will instantly create a sense of proportion, interest and drama. If everything is the same size, nothing will stand out.
4. Symmetry Balance-
- By placing your sofas, arms chairs and side tables on opposing sides of each other creates a well balanced living room that appears both organised and comfortable.
5. Creating Contrast-
A great way to achieve this in design is by choosing one shade for the walls and the other shades is used in textiles, accessories and furnishings.
