How To Choose Great Living Room Furniture
With the amount of time that most families spend in their living room, it is no wonder that it is the most popular room in the house and the furniture in it is also the most popular.
Your living room furniture should be as comfortable as it is stylish, so that whether you are entertaining guests or just laying around watching TV, you will have that comfortable and cozy feeling of being at home.
One way to begin choosing the furniture for your living room is to decide on your style. Some people prefer the modern look with a lot of glass and chrome plating while others prefer the more contemporary look of wood grain and brass.
Remember when choosing your style to take the other rooms of your house into consideration, as you do not want to create a style that changes drastically from one room to the next.
While choosing the decor for your living room (or any room), keep the size of furniture in mind as you will want it to be cozy but not crowded. A well designed and decorated living room will give the feeling of spacious or openness when standing and walking, but when seated you will feel cozy and comfortable as though the room was hugging you.
If you have a smaller living room area, try choosing a sofa and/or love seat that is comfortable, but not overwhelming in size, also try to pick brighter more solid colors as this will help in creating a more open atmosphere that will make the room “feel” bigger.
It is easier to choose your coffee table, end tables and TV stand if you have already decide on your sofa, love seat and chair as you will already have an idea of the style you will be trying to create.
In most cases if you have decided on bright colors and creating openness with the sofa and love seat furniture, then choosing a coffee table and/or TV stand that is glass and chrome will compliment the openness and will give the feeling of a spacious living area.
Likewise, if you have decided on more darker colors and/or patterned seating furniture, then a good choice for your tables and TV stand would be the darker wood grains and brass or pewter handled furniture as this will help in complimenting the cozy feeling that the darker colors are trying to create.
By remembering these tips when choosing your living room furniture, you will find it easy to turn a room in your house into a room with that cozy-comfortable feeling that you can call home.
