Your own home is the one place where you can make your mark on your environment and create your own perfect place to spend time. The living room is the heart of family life, so you want to make it a pleasant, relaxing, and comfortable room to spend time in. Here are a few ways that you can make the most of your living room…
Think about the Television – One of the most important features in a living room is the television. You should plan where you want it to be before the rest of the furniture as it is such a large item, and the typical living room does revolve around the television. You can get the help of someone like One Vision a TV aerial installation company in Swansea to move the aerial to another place in the room so you won’t have unsightly wires, so don’t fall into the trap of thinking the TV is restricted to where the socket for the aerial is.
Use Contrast – Using contrasting colours and tones is a great way to create a more bold and striking look for your living room. Vibrant wallpaper on one feature wall for example or even dark frames around pictures on a light background adds some interest to a room and stop it from looking flat and dull.
Lights – Lighting is really important and letting in as much natural light as possible is the best thing. Of course, this can’t always be achieved so add cosy lamps to the corners of the room and use contemporary wall lights to bring a bit more light in.
