Take a piece of paper and write down your hobbies, your favorite colors, places you like to visit the most, a little about your personality, etc. This all can be expressed into a living room design easily using various design theme and accessories. For example you like to visit places along the beaches. You absolutely love the beach sand, the avenues of palm trees, the breeze flowing, etc. Then you can convert this as a design theme for your living room.
The coffee table generally sits in the expanse between the sofa and the television, and whilst it does offer a handy place to pop your glass of wine, its central location means that most eyes fall on it when they look at the room, and it becomes the most important focal point. So, are you the arty type with heavy art books and sketch books stacked sky high, or perhaps a slightly uptight neat freak, with a spotless surface and a coaster at the ready? Regardless of what your personality really is, or who you want to project, spending some time considering the `presentation` of your coffee table, just as you would a display on a buffet or dresser could make a huge difference to your room. If you want to create a coffee table display, select pieces with a similar theme and group them together, then balance the display with an off centre vase of flowers, or bowl. If you prefer to keep your coffee table surface clear, look for a coffee table design that makes more of a statement, to add interest to the centre of the room, if you have a minimalist theme, create depth by contrasting shapes, a simple round vase on a square table for example.
square coffee tables are excellent in larger rooms although they can overpower smaller spaces when not chosen with care. If you are buying a square coffee table be sure to mark out the floor area that will be covered to make sure that it will not overwhelm the room.
Another option for a small living room is to have a corner sectional. You can customize a sofa that can be adjusted in the corner instead of the centre. This design works wonderfully in small living rooms. They may not be very small in size but their positioning creates good space in the room.You can design and customize curved sectional sofas. This design even placed in the centre makes a good space in the room. Curved sectional sofas have empty space behind and that makes the room look spacious.
Before buying a living room sofa, make sure that you have measured the area of your room where you will be placing your sofa. However, if you have decided to transform your room completely, then it would be helpful to take measurements of the whole living room. You might have an idea of placing the sofa against the wall but what if you change your mind later on? A perfectly sized sofa will adjust itself to any corner of the room. A large over sized sofa will cramp up a small room whereas a small sofa would go unnoticed in a big room.
Coffee tables are frequently the central focus of a living area and therefore have a tremendous impact on a room`s decor and ambiance. A wise choice can create a feeling of style and harmony whilst a poor choice can make a room look disordered and can overwhelm the other furniture, making the room look smaller and feel less unified.
Living room chairs should be lightweight and easy to move since they may need to be shifted to accommodate various activities and even differences in lighting at various times during the day. It may not be a great idea to use heavy varieties of wood like oak or rosewood. The color scheme should blend well with the colors of the couch, wall paint and other elements of soft furnishings like curtains and wall treatments. Chairs made of painted wood fit the bill, in terms of the ease with which these chairs can be blended into the decor, coupled with adequate strength.
Depending upon the design/dimensions/shape and volume of the living room various combinations of the sofas can be done to utilize space. While deciding the arrangement of the sofas keep one thing in mind that as soon as you arrange a sofa layout, the volume of space occupied by the sofas and surroundings immediately becomes the focus of attention. For example if the sofas have been arranged around the TV unit, see that the rest of the space gets enough attention or it will look unoccupied. Also make use of small elements such as end tables and coffee table of various shapes to create some interest in the living room.
