Compared to other rooms in your house, extra care should be taken when furnishing your living room. You rest there. Your kids play and watch TV there. And you receive guests there as well. However, people DO commit some serious mistakes when they furnish their living rooms, such as:
– Instead of placing a few pieces of furniture neatly in the middle of the room, people cram their living rooms up with furniture placed against the wall. This makes their rooms look smaller and more cluttered.
– Curtains are usually one of the most important focus points of the living room. So, what happens when you don’t know that? You use heavy embroidered curtains that create another focus point, and in the process, a sort of confusion making your visitors feel as if the living room is some sort of storage for furniture. Make curtains as simple as possible or use simple blinds instead.
– I usually advise people to give up rugs if they have beautifully tiled floors, which is not the case for most people. Therefore, include rugs in your living room furniture. Moreover, rugs are extremely necessary in cold weather as they can block the chill.
– Neutralizing all the way. I know that you can never go wrong with neutral colors, but always going for neutrals makes your living room boring and impersonal. You will feel as if you are in the waiting room of some clinic. Add colorful touches that express your character to your living room
– Ignoring unity. It kills me to see people gathering whatever pieces of furniture they have in their living rooms regardless of their styles. Even if your Victorian living room is gorgeous, people will ignore it and will only remember the modern floor lamb you have put in there.
