The living room is one of the most frequented rooms in the home, next to the kitchen and bathroom. Many living rooms are in front of the home on the first floor, so they are one of the first rooms people see when entering a home. People tend to invest a lot of decorating energy in making this room attractive and inviting. There are many living room designs to choose from for virtually any home decorating style.
No matter what you want the purpose to be for your living room, the way that you lay it out, the furniture you use, the fabric, even the colors you use will complete the look. You can create a natural look, rustic, contemporary, or elegant with just a few simple changes. The look you decide on doesn‘t have to be the only look you can have in the living room. Feel free to experiment with different looks until you find one that you like. It‘s okay to change the look of your room every season or just once a year.
A general rule of thumb is that lighter colors make the room feel larger and reflect the light. On the other hand, a darker color of carpet makes the room look small and it absorbs light. If you want to have a carpet of cool colors, you can go with shades of greens and blues as these colors have a calm and subtle feel. Similarly, if you use warm colors like reds, orange tones and yellows, it will give a more creative feeling to your living room. If you are not sure about which color to choose, or are afraid of experimenting, you can go with neutral colors like beige and gray.
One of the main factors affecting the looks of a room is its walls. The colors and texture used in walls make a whole lot of difference to the room. For example, if your living area is small in size, it can be made to look larger visually by application of ‘cool‘ colors like greens and blues of a lighter shade. They actually have the ability to make your ceiling look larger in height too. But if you really want dark colors, you can get a single wall painted to a related matching dark color to give the room an element of interest.
