Before buying a living room sofa, make sure that you have measured the area of your room where you will be placing your sofa. However, if you have decided to transform your room completely, then it would be helpful to take measurements of the whole living room. You might have an idea of placing the sofa against the wall but what if you change your mind later on? A perfectly sized sofa will adjust itself to any corner of the room. A large over sized sofa will cramp up a small room whereas a small sofa would go unnoticed in a big room.
Seating furniture is the most striking component of any living room. However, instead of going for a huge and bulky sofa set, get loveseats, ottomans and lounge chairs. A mix and match of these pieces not only looks unique, attractive and minimalistic, it also consumes lesser space and provides diverse sitting options. Whites, beiges, greys and blacks are the ideal colours for seating furniture. Throw a splash of colour using lots of cushions.
The trend in modern living rooms is for a more open design - you need to look carefully at the quality of natural light in the room and how to supplement it with additional light sources. Wooden furniture with a natural finish is a good choice as it tends to lend a light and airy aspect to the furnishings, as well as giving some much-needed warmth and character.
Candles and lanterns, which were once thought of as unnecessary home accessories, are now considered to be the primary dwellers of modern homes. Lanterns with antique finish, colourful Moroccan lanterns and scented candles placed in sophisticated candleholders make a room look and feel pleasant and peaceful. You can hang the lanterns from the ceiling in the centre of the room over the centre table like a chandelier or place them in the corner of the living room or on the sides. If the rest of the living room contains neutral colours, it’s best to go with bright coloured lanterns and candles.
