Consider adding a sofa table (even if it is a buffet in disguise that will add valuable space for storage, games, etc. that your family uses. When placed at the back of the sofa or love seat it frees up wall space, adds wood tones and a place to add lighting or candles and display space. Cut the legs off of an older buffet and create a special seating area by adding a pillow to the top!
Main Living Room Lighting Options- The main light fixture should offer a large amount of light. This is usually an overhead fixture, though some designers are moving away from this traditional solution. In addition to being the primary light source, this fixture should add aesthetic appeal to the room because it will be a focal point. Choose something inviting, bold, or creative according to your room decor and taste, but let it be something inherently decorative. Many homeowners enjoy installing chandeliers or pendant and hanging fixtures in the living and sitting room for this reason.
If you have plans on moving to a new house think about furniture, upholstery and collect as many fabric swatches and samples until you find the ones that you love. A lot of online and brick-and-mortar furniture stores would gladly provide you with fabric samples if you asked them. Start your collecting process at least six months before moving or renovation. Make sure to order more than one set of swatches because many fabrics can be discontinued within six months or even sooner.
