Because living rooms can serve many purposes, you’ll want to be sure to incorporate a variety of different furniture pieces to cover all possible activities. When considering living room ideas, start with your space. If your home is generally tight on space, having plenty of shelves, cabinets or drawers will be crucial to accommodating any storage needs. Built-ins are the best way to do this, since they take up less space and are often customized to meet your needs, however they can run on the more expensive side. If built-ins aren’t part of your living room design ideas, start with the big pieces, like an entertainment center or TV stand to house any electronics and accessories, or a bookcase to keep books, picture frames and knickknacks in check. Plenty of living room furniture ideas use pieces in multiple ways, like a desk or table as a craft station or homework spot, and a window seat as a go-to reading or nap station.
It would barely come as a surprise to anyone following early trends of 2017 that natural design elements are currently a hit among homeowners and designers alike. Wood is the undoubted leader of this pack with modern homes embracing the warmth and organic elegance of the material at its beautiful best. Be it ingenious décor, stylish accessories or even exceptional backdrops, wood is pretty much everywhere you look around! Now is definitely a great time to get in on the ’woodsy wave’ and you can do it without completely revamping your existing living room.
We always talk of the living room as a monolithic unit. Every little detail in the room is like a small piece of the larger jigsaw. Disturb one and you might have to end up creating an entirely new picture! The fabulous and comfy couch is definitely at the center of this delightful setting and is inarguably the most important piece of décor in any living space. A couch can define the style of your living room and as an extension that of your kitchen and dining space as well. It pretty much lays down the marker for everything else and is the one large addition that can transform the living room ambiance.
It’s a refreshing feeling, stepping into a warm living room that is filled with light. Somehow bright and well-lit interior creates a great combination of a calm and lively decor. The peacefulness doesn’t take anything away from the cheerfulness of the space. White is the obvious choice for such an interior, but that makes it all a very predictable affair. If you wish for something with a little more character, beige is the tone you’ll discover happiness with! Check out these amazing and elegant beige living rooms for more inspiration.
Water is not the only charming thing at the beach. A lot of the magic stems from the sand!

Your very own living room can carry so many sandy elements you will soon feel like every day can be beach day!
Clubbing the bookshelf with the entertainment unit might be nothing new or revolutionary, but it is a tried and tested method that never fails. Apart from saving space, this approach also gives your living room or family room a curated and elegant vibe, even while ensuring that the television still remains the focal point of the setting. Repeat the style of the bookshelf or its finish elsewhere, and you are all set.
