#1 SPACE OUT YOUR FURNITURE

Never an overcrowded room looked stylish or appealing. That’s because you don’t need to fill up your living room with lots of furniture to make it look beautiful. Our advice is to spend more of your budget on fewer but better-quality pieces, and you’ll see a major difference.

#2 GET YOUR ARTWORK ON THE RIGHT PLACE

If you truly have a piece that is worth displaying in your living room, then make sure to hang it 57 to 60 inches from the floor. This way, your artwork will be at eye level and it’ll be much easier to appreciate it and to make it work according to our human scale.

#3 DON’T STICK TO A THEME

By this, we don’t mean you shouldn’t choose a theme to use in your living area. In fact, you can do so. However, try to stay away from the too-obvious-choices and play by your rules. For example, if you choose to go with a nautical theme, you can add some rope or blue details across the room, and not overcrowd it with too many things.

#4 CREATE A FOCAL POINT

Any room needs to have a focal point. That one piece that stands out and makes the rules for every other piece of furniture around it. Your focal point might be a mantel and art piece in the living room, for example. But whatever it is, choose something that will draw attention!

#5 PAY ATTENTION TO SIGHT LINES

Your focal point should be free and clear from one room to the next, so that it feels like you’re being drawn between them. That’s why the best spot for a focal point is usually directly across from the entrance to the room.

#6 PLAY WITH LIGHTING

In a room where everything is lit evenly, nothing stands out. Pick a focal point and perhaps a secondary focal point and highlight those. Add general ambient lighting and some lower lighting, like table lamps, for interest. The graphic lamps you can see in the photo below are from DelightFULL’s Graphic collection.

#7 ADD SOME DRAMA

Personality is what makes a space great. Make your own statement and have fun. Incorporate unexpected elements for drama and create a space that stands out for the best reasons.

#8 HAVE FUN WITH SCALES

Always vary scale and proportion. This way you’ll ensure that every piece in the room will have its on place and will play its own role in constructing the perfect design. It is a great way to create balance and make sure every piece fits in together.

#9 USE YOUR RUG RIGHT

You can either use a rug that is big enough so your furniture can all stay on top of it; a small rug that is kept at the center and leaves all the furniture off of it; or a big enough rug to make sure all the front pieces of your furniture are placed on top of it. What you do not want is a rug that doesn’t properly fit your room dimensions and makes you put some things on top of it and other off.

#10 CHOOSE YOUR WALL PAINT LAST

Each color looks different from home to home because light sources vary, meaning what looks good in your current home might not in your new one. And you want the color that best complements your upholstery, artwork, rug and whatever else! For this reason, choose your wall paint last and ensure you’ll have the perfect color for your living room!
