A little refresh goes a long way in any room, but there’s definitely an art to a living room redesign. Follow these simple steps for a well-designed living room.
Determine the best furniture placement based on room traffic, taking into consideration fireplaces, TVs and outdoor views. Start with upholstered pieces like a sofa or sectional, followed by chairs, ottomans and benches.
Based on furniture and upholstery, select a rug to serve as a foundation for the space. Consider rug-to-room size ratios, and that upholstered items should sit on the front of the rug.
Now that seating and rugs are placed, it’s time for tables. Most rooms require end tables and a cocktail table, while a credenza is perfect for below the TV.
When tables are situated, good lighting comes into play. Choose the scale and style of lamps based on both natural and necessary light.
Complete your room with art and décor. Add color and character with glassware, trays, books, candles and art of all forms.
