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.
To save space and to cut down on unnecessary extra furniture, choose pieces that offer as much versatility as possible: coffee tables with plenty of storage shelves; TV cabinets with added drawers; and even sofas with hidden storage. Opt for living room cabinets that have both open and closed storage so you can hide stuff away, and still keep your most prized knick knacks on display.
Your living room floor suffers a lot of use and abuse, so choosing the best is key. A carpet may look lovely to begin with, but light colours should be avoided in favour of darker shades, contemporary patterns or a low-pile, stain resistant carpet. Either way, it's worth knowing how to clean carpet before you have yours laid. Natural flooring, such as sisal, is another option, but these can be tricky to maintain, so opt for a rug in these materials over hard floor.
Contemporary living room decor resists the minutiae of ornamentation and instead puts the focus on space, shape, and color. Its lightweight construction and pliable materials allows designers to explore sleeker lines and implement more daring shapes into their living room decorating ideas. Contemporary style makes a bold statement without being overstated. Browse Living Spaces’ selection of contemporary furniture for living room ideas.
