Consider adding a sofa table (even if it is a buffet in disguise that will add valuable space for storage, games, etc. that your family uses. When placed at the back of the sofa or love seat it frees up wall space, adds wood tones and a place to add lighting or candles and display space. Cut the legs off of an older buffet and create a special seating area by adding a pillow to the top!
The best way to implement a living room decorating concept is to research the purpose of the room. The purpose of your living room is for most a place of sanctuary, where one can kick back in the recliner, with a cold beverage, and enjoy a ball game, or movie. For others the living room can be a virtual office, in the days of wireless internet, and laptop computers, living room decorating must consider these things. Whatever the use is for your living room, try locating it before you do any living room decorating, in order to fully adorn the room with functional decorations.
If you have a 'cookie cutter' style home, consider adding an electric fireplace (found at your local home improvement stores inexpensively) to create a personalized warm and inviting focal point. Seating should be grouped around your focal point; it should also be arranged to promote conversations between the people in the room.
To bring loveseats into the focus of the room, choose upholstery or slip covers that will surely pop out. For example, if your room is stark white, your sofa should be a bold color to provide contrast. Keep other furniture simple and coordinate them with the room's color rather than stand out like the loveseat. This way, you can create the illusion of an expansive space around a single piece of furniture.
From early times in the United States (U.S.), up to the 1970s, much family activity centered on the living room of a home. Also known as \"the receiving room,\" home makers took guests there as soon as they entered the home. This room contained the best seating and furnishings. There, the draperies hung finely about the windows. A small piano might reside in the room. A vase with fresh-cut flowers and a bowl filled with nuts or mints might rest on the coffee table. \"Eat something while I fetch coffee from the kitchen,\" a home maker might say to guests.
