Whether you call it a family room, sitting room or living room, you have that one designated space in your home that is meant for family relaxation and guests. Of course, any homeowner would want their living room to be attractive and comfortable. When it comes to unique decorating ideas for your living room, imagination is as important as a budget. Besides, you have probably gathered enough knowledge over the years through visits to various homes and reading interior design publications to use in your home transformation.
Step one is to choose your theme. Remember, a living room should be a reflection of the people living there. Everything should look and work as ideal as possible. You aren’t just decorating for the sake of it. If you have just been to a Martin Modern Showflat, you might have seen some of these ideas put to use. Dress up your living room with these distinctive décor ideas.
When it comes to decorating a space, the lighting is usually overlooked despite its’ centrality to setting the mood of a living room and highlighting your interior décor. A combination of task lighting and ambient overhead lighting will give your house a warm glow. Let in natural light by using sheer curtains that gently diffuse sunshine. Additionally, consider floor and table lamps to add functional lighting to your space while interspersing your design style. Therefore, do not be afraid of going bold when it comes to your choice of lamps.
Piece of art
Another unique way of decorating your living room is to create a focal point and adding a wow factor by hanging a large piece of art on one of the walls in your living room. The resulting look will be modish and impactful. Keep an eye on thrift stores and flea markets for funky art pieces at affordable prices, or put your creativity to the test by making it by yourself.
Conceal your Television
A massive TV positioned front and center of your living room often diminishes the sense of spaciousness. You can visually play down the presence of your TV by creating a gallery wall around it. Even though it will not entirely disappear, the TV’s frame will merge seamlessly with the adjacent artwork and engross the eye.
Use appealing textiles
You can give your space a customised look by using antique or vintage textiles to make seat cushions, throw pillows or upholstered stools. Then again, you can incorporate a textural throw of your couch to step up that comfy aspect. Another idea is to use an antique rug on the floor. Atypical fabric choices will add a unique element to your room and helps customise your living space.
A historical piece
You can add a sense of history and wisdom to your space by incorporating any attractive historical item, and this includes anything from a side table to a mirror or accessory to pull off the trick.
You can get innovative with framed photos and not just let clutter up your living room. Instead, you can create a focal point in one of your blank living room walls by arranging framed photos in a grid format. Not only is this display simple but powerful, especially when matching frames are used.
Mix and match
Matching dining seats may feel dull over time. Combine a few seats from the dining room with those in the kitchen. The newly introduced chairs should be placed at the center of the dining table, so it looks deliberate. While matching pairs adds balance to a room, different items bring about a sense of boldness.
