Kept spotlessly clean, the living room location permitted the homemaker to entertain guests without their getting far into the dwelling (where messes lurked). A home maker might comfortably engage in polite and interesting conversation, and make an impression on guests in the living room. That location, the most formal, coat-and-tie room in the house, exuded sophistication as well as cleanliness and it wordlessly identified the family as rising in social status (or it did not). But, housing changed in the U.S. in the 1970's when people wanted to express themselves, to have more choice, and they cared less about what guests thought of them.
Location is another important element to think about when doing a living room design. If the room is located between two bedrooms, this might be reason not to install the surround sound that your child wants. Or if the room is located near the backyard, it may not make sense to install white carpet. Whatever the case, think carefully about the location of the living room, before performing a living room design plan.
Another easy way to revive your space is to paint the walls a new shade. A fresh coat of paint will spruce up any space. By changing the color, your furnishings and the room in return will achieve a new look. For example, a light colored couch would pop against a dark wall. The accent color in your upholstery fabric can be brought out by a new wall shade. You can highlight an accent color present in the living room, or tie the room to a color scheme seen throughout the home.
