If you feel that your living room is missing something and does not convey the sensations you would like (comfort, warmth, coherence …) regardless of the decorative style chosen (well-executed minimalism is not incompatible with the feeling of comfort), you can the time has come to do a decorative review to see if you are missing a basic.
No matter the size or layout of the room, there are no excuses why it does not include all the necessary furniture and accessories (adjusted to its size) to complete the room and make it have a good balance.
Another aspect that is most affecting the concept of the living room is undoubtedly, its opening to the living room. Or rather the reverse; Opening the kitchen to the living room has changed the rules of the game and although this distribution favors circulation and fluidity, it does not have to mean that the living rooms lose their essence or, of course, that the living room is lived as an extension of the kitchen.
Both spaces must coexist and maintain their visual coherence but without renouncing their essence. If your salon meets these five decorative tips, you will do it easily.
Check the lighting and check that several ambient lamps
This cannot only come from the ceiling in the form of spotlights and / or ceiling lamps. You should have floor or table lamps in practically every corner of the room. At least there should be a lamp – standing or table – on one side of the room (but better on both sides).
Not without cushions
It may seem like a minor detail but it is not. Cushions provide color and physical and visual comfort to sofas and armchairs and are the best way to add color and different textures to the room.
That an XXL television is not the only decoration on your walls
This is a very common defect that generates cold and soulless spaces. As proud as you are of the many inches of your television you are not decorating the living room.
When decorating a space you have to think vertically. You can generate a wall of art to steal prominence from that wall, include color or wallpaper on one or more walls or even cover a wall with panels with reliefs or 3D cladding.
A rug at least framing the living area
Placing a large rug that covers the entire living area is the best way to zone a room. It also provides visual warmth even being vinyl.
Includes small and versatile furniture to give dynamism and versatility to the space
Although there is not much space, there is no shortage of auxiliary furniture such as tables / stools or puffs that can serve as support to snack on something and that suppose more seats. Also, as furniture is easy to move, it will give dynamism to the living room and it is a good way to incorporate new trends or colors.
