Moving on to choosing living room furniture. This is probably going to be the most pricey aspect of your living room revamp, so really think about what you do and don’t need (which may mean giving up on using your coffee table as anything other than a foot rest and replacing it with an ottoman that can be used as extra seating instead).
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.
Finally, if you are going to invest in beautiful furniture in your new living room design, there is no reason that this can’t become the focus of the room. Lay the furniture out in a way that promotes interaction between family members. Designate a well lit corner for your perfect armchair, then when people enter the room, they will notice the furniture over anything else.
Consider, too, what you really need in your living room, and what you can live without. At the very least, you'll need enough seating, side and/or coffee tables, a TV unit, storage for everything from gaming equipment to toys to books. If this is starting to over-load the room, what could go elsewhere?
