From early times in the United States (U.S.), up to the 1970s, much family activity centered on the living room of a home. Also known as \"the receiving room,\" home makers took guests there as soon as they entered the home. This room contained the best seating and furnishings. There, the draperies hung finely about the windows. A small piano might reside in the room. A vase with fresh-cut flowers and a bowl filled with nuts or mints might rest on the coffee table. \"Eat something while I fetch coffee from the kitchen,\" a home maker might say to guests.
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.
Changing your window treatments is another way to change the look of your space, without completely replacing everything in the room. Using a different color or style of drape will alter the look of your living room and the furnishings in it. Going with a different type of window treatment can also dramatically change the appearance of your room. For example, going from cellular shades to drapes, or shutters. The amount of light in the space may also be affected by the change. More light may be brought in to the living room or more light might be filtered out. Also how you hang the window treatment can highlight high ceilings or a nice view, or conceal shortcomings.
