Redesigning a living room? Or perhaps just trying to make a small space look bigger? Whatever your motive for tackling your living room layout, it's the room you and your family will spend lots of time in, so getting it right is vital. The perfect living room is one that suits the way that you live, whether you want a space for entertaining, a quiet and isolated room to withdraw to, or a multi-functional space that can be adapted to whatever the situation needs. Here's how to get your living room layout spot on.
Start with the basics and assess what furniture your living room really can’t do without – and how you might make it more versatile, with hidden storage, for example. Also think about how durable each piece needs to be and what’s worth investing in – soft furnishings get the most wear, so get the highest quality you can within your budget or opt for removable covers that can be machine washed.
And be sure to choose furniture that will stand the test of time, not just in a practical sense but in a style sense too. Don’t go with styles, shapes, colours or patterns that will date or that you will tire of too quickly.
Once you've chosen your main room colour, pick out one main accent and another one or two accent shades to use in smaller doses. This gives you the opportunity to add warmth to a neutral scheme, cool down a bright scheme, link together two ends of a long or open-plan space, and perhaps even to tie your living room colours with those of your hallway for whole-house cohesion.
