Creating a livable living room

Creating a livable living room

How do you feel when you walk into your living room? Cramped? Comfortable? Bored? Annoyed? You might not even realize what aspect of the room is bothering you. It might be the placement of the furnishings, the lack of lighting, or the dearth of visual interest. If you feel ill at ease, don’t be afraid to break out of your comfort zone and try something new with your interior design and furniture arrangement. Your living room should feel comfortable, clean, and inviting, no matter what your tastes are.

Felicia Klein works as an interior designer for Eheart Interior Solutions and she said, "Your living room should reflect your lifestyle and your routines. For example, if you are the type of family who loves to kick back and watch movies or a football game, you want to have a comfortable sofa and a few large chairs. If you’re a family who does a lot of reading, then you want to ensure you have a wonderful reading lamp, comfortable chairs and a few side tables."

The incredible thing is, this can all be done within a budget. It’s all about furniture placement and attractive accessories. You don’t need expensive furniture and it doesn’t have to match. Each member of the family could incorporate his or her identity into the room. Klein said, "One of my favorite things to do is have a his and hers chair. This makes the space comfortable for him and her, and then you have a large sofa for your children. It’s a great way to ensure time with the family."

Buying new, expensive-looking furniture actually doesn’t make a room more comfortable. It makes the room look off-limits and can make guests and family members worried about messing up the chair cushions and pillows. You should also be sure to keep the space feeling open. Too much furniture makes a room feel cluttered and confined.

One accessory that can make a difference is an area rug. Klein said, "Area rugs are a great way to make a space feel grounded. It adds a great element of texture and color, and it’s a way to make the space more comfortable and calm." Just be sure you measure the room and the rug so they fit each other.
