Set the color palette in the decorated living room
Before you go shopping for rug, sofa and decorative objects, define the color palette that you will use in your living room. This step is important to ensure harmony and balance in the composition of the environment.
Choose a color or tone to be the basis of the décor and apply it to the larger areas of the room, such as walls and floors. To avoid error, give preference to light and neutral colors, such as white or off White tones.
Then set the color that will contrast with this base color. You can choose another slightly stronger neutral tone, such as gray, blue or black. This combination of colors is also used in modern style decorations.
But you can also opt for a more lively tone, such as yellow or red, for example. This second color of the palette should be inserted into the larger objects, but not at all. For example, if you choose a red sofa choose another color for the rug and the curtain.
After the base color and contrast color, choose two or three more colors for smaller objects such as cushions, puffs, vases, and pictures. These colors can be of the same contrast color palette or a complementary tone. One tip is to use, for example, a blue sofa with red cushions, since red is the complementary color of blue.
Check the size of the decorated living room and the layout of the furniture
The size of the room is very important to ensure the best decoration, since for each size of environment there are colors and objects more recommended.
For small rooms, the ideal is to bet on light base colors and objects like mirrors to visually enlarge the space. Larger rooms, however, need to be careful not to get too cold and unfriendly.
It is also important to pay attention to the size of the furniture in relation to the space and to guarantee a free area of circulation. TV panels are most recommended for small environments because they do not take up space on the floor. And if you opt for a retractable type sofa make sure that the measure of it when open will not interfere in the passage area.
Another tip is to first decorate the room with the main elements that are usually the sofa, the TV and the rack or panel, only to then insert other elements such as armchairs, side tables or center. That way, you can have the exact size of the space that is “left over” and does not overload the environment.
What can not miss in the decorated living room
For the living room to be comfortable, functional and beautiful some items are also indispensable. The first and foremost of them is the curtain, especially if the room receives a lot of sunlight. Too much clarity can bother and disturb the nap, the reading, and that moment of watching a movie or TV series.
A good rug can not be missed either. It will ensure that the room becomes more cozy and cozy for those informal chat, where everyone sits on the floor or even during the winter to keep the room warmer.
Pillows also come on the list of what not to miss. They help to accommodate both the sofa and the floor, without saying that they still complement the decor with style.
Include in the list mirrors, potted plants and pictures to give that personal touch in the environment and fill it with personality.
