Living Room. Saturday , August 11th , 2018 - 16:50:34 PM
Before buying living room furniture, room space planning often pays by helping you to avoid clutter. If there was one thing the Victorians were good at, it was clutter. They seemed to fill every inch of available space with furniture and accessories and forget that people needed space to walk in!
A living room can be described in many different terms. For some people it is a simple seating area or lounge area. Some people would consider their living room as the main living space in their home, where guests and family gather to watch TV, read and talk.
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.
There are many other accent pieces that can be use to complement your living room furniture, and also add to the look of the room, or even its theme if you prefer to have themed rooms. Ignoring the obvious Egyptian statues, African masks and Native American artifacts for the more obvious themes, those preferring more modern themes can use chess sets and tables, figurines, lamps, trays and boxes to accentuate the decor of their living rooms.
In order to a take a holistic approach to living room furniture and furnishings, you should first decide on the fundamental decorative style you wish to adopt, and then choose the most appropriate color scheme and wall decor that fits in with your decision. Once you have a rough idea of the colors involved, and the general period of furniture you will require, you can select that furniture from the large selection available from American furniture companies such as Stickley, Southwood, Sherrill and Simply Amish.
With these types of designs typically the entire room design is focused on the media equipment and the seating area.
