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.
If you have great views from the windows in your living room, then turning these into the focus of the room is a brilliant solution. Again, this is a great idea for rooms specified for relaxing, and not sitting in front of a TV. This is a good option if your living room is in an open plan extension, and you have built vast windows to flood the space with light. How to do it? Dressing your windows with gorgeous curtains or smart shutters is a good place to start.
There are a variety of flooring options available for a living room. While floorboards have a warming effect and suit virtually any style, maintenance tends to be higher. To ensure your floorboards always look uniform, it is essential to re-stain and polish them to ensure any major dents or scratches don’t become permanent. Carpet on the other hand can be replaced easily, and is better suited to climates where the winters and long and cold.
Alternatively, you could make the fireplace a focal point with a mirror or artwork over the mantelpiece. This is especially effective in a room where you don’t really have any technology. If your living room is for relaxing and reading, or listening to music, then having a focal point like a fireplace will add to the calming feel.
