Like the name implies, the living room is easily one of the most important rooms in our homes. Unlike basements, kitchens or bathrooms, the rest room is usually our first thought when it comes to decorating a new home. At the same time, rest rooms need to be one of the most versatile spaces in your home. They take on a number of different roles which can make getting the decor just right, a bit of a challenge. For some, the reception room is still a more formal space reserved primarily for entertaining guests; for others it's a very casual space. It's where we kick back after a long day to rest and relax or where we wile away the hours during a long weekend enjoying leisure activities like watching TV and reading. Living room design ideas coming up these days keep in mind the requirements and needs of the people, so their investment is guaranteed to be in safe hands.
The Functionality of the Room- This is the first step in the makeover of the room. The nature of the household and the needs of the family have their say in this process. Whether you want to use the Living room as the bedroom or home office, decide on it.
Accents & Highlighting- Draw attention to a fireplace with overhead recessed lighting or track lighting fixtures. Alternatively, wall sconces on either side of the mantel will both emphasize the fireplace and offer more lighting for the entire room. An up light situated behind the object can highlight pedestals, figurines or floor plants. Add additional layers with multi-tiered hanging lamps or wall/ceiling wash lights. Accent lights placed in alcoves, corners or closed in spaces will accentuate a specific area or piece and give the room a larger appearance.
