3 Tips for Decorating Your Living Room
August 13, 2018
New homes in Georgetown TX provide the perfect blank canvas for creating the living room you’ve always wanted. Follow these tips to make it a place where you and your family can relax and entertain guests in style:
Set the tone with color
Are you looking for a calm, peaceful ambience or a vibrant, bright atmosphere? The colors you use on your walls will set the tone for your room. Soothing neutrals such as gray, off-white and beige create a setting for relaxation. The lighter the color, the more open and bight the room will feel. Darker colors will give the room a cozier or more formal feel, depending on how you accessorize.
If you’re going for a vibrant look, paint one or more walls in a bright color that makes you feel good. Keep in mind that these will limit your accessories to compatible colors and will also impact the resale value of your home. You may want to repaint in neutral colors if you ever decide to sell.
Add the right flooring
Most people prefer carpet in their living rooms, since it’s “warmer” and softer to walk on. An easy-care low-pile carpet is best if you have kids and pets or will be using the room frequently for casual gatherings. If your lifestyle is more formal, an upgraded carpet can lend an air of elegance to the room.
If carpet isn’t your style, consider hardwood, engineered wood or even tile. A large area rug will anchor groups of furniture and provide a colorful accent. It will also protect hardwood floors from scratches.
Choose your furniture
Your best bet when buying large upholstered pieces is to choose neutral colors. This way you can change your accessories and décor at any time without having to buy new furniture. Buy the best quality you can afford. It should last for many years and adapt to your style over time.
Choose colors and fabrics that combine well with your wall color and intended mood. Casual, plush furniture invites you to snuggle in and watch a movie, while dark leather furniture sets a decidedly masculine mood. Delicate settees with turned legs say “formal” all the way, producing images of well-dressed ladies sipping tea.
