Do you know what happens when you do something without a plan? Well most likely you will keep doing things that seem right but the end result will be vague. It will look like all the decoration will not complement each other. The colour and style will be different and all over the place, which is not good. It is always good to have a plan before starting decorating. Even getting an idea about how to do things can help you avoid you making a food out of yourself.
It is advisable to have theme or general idea in your mind as to how you want it to look. It doesn’t mean that you need to know and plan every inch of detail but just a general overview of the room. Like I said before about the importance of planning, you can base them around your general idea. Do some research and work with the styles and themes that you can find. Find out a style that fits your living room.
Moving on to the planning lighting plays big a role it can make the room dull or bright. Look at your lighting to see if it is making the room too dark or too bright. The light can ignite emotion, joy, happiness, etc. Bad lighting can bring dull moods.
Flooring is essential to the furniture of the house. Do you have wooden or tile flooring? Will you be going for carpets? Internet is good place to find good ones. If you live in Australia just google rugs for sale online Australia and you will find some good places close to your home.
Getting the right furniture is important. It needs to once again complement what your general idea of the room should be. I would recommend you not lining up your furniture against the wall because it makes the room look smaller but keeping some space behind the furniture helps make it look bigger. There will also be more room to walk around.
Adding a little accessory to the room will bring about variety. You get some wall decoration in the form of art paintings, picture frames, etc. You can also use some floral beauty where you may fill up those empty spaces that you were worrying about in the room.
Look at the curtains and get a nice matching colour to complement the carpet and wall colour. These small things can go a long way to making it look great. Not everything fits all rooms but if you get all complementing colours and furniture right you will have a great living room.
