If you’re the sort of person to walk around without shoes on inside, carpet helps to keep your feet warm and radiates an aura of cosiness. Ultimately, what you choose should depends on the conditions of the room and your lifestyle. As we mentioned earlier, think about the effect you want to achieve. Is your living room your mecca of peace and comfort, or a statement room in your home?
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.
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.
The number of square metres you have has no influence on how cosy or inviting a the room can feel, but in principle, wild patterns and bold colours should be avoided if you want to visually enlarge the space as much as you can. It’s possible to create clever optical illusions with orientation, light, furniture layout, colour as well as living room storage space; fooling even the most discerning designer into thinking your room is much larger than it actually is.
