Modern Living room Ideas

Best Modern Living Room Design Ideas & Remodel Pictures | Houzz
Living in the UK we know that living rooms come in all shapes and sizes; unfortunately not all living room designs are perfectly rectangular with a fireplace and windows at either end of the room, so how do you arrange your living room furniture if you have an awkwardly-shaped or small living room? The key is to think about the focal point of the room. Do you want it to be the fireplace (if you have one)? The television? A coffee table? A piece of art? Start from here and work outwards. There are also lots of great small living room ideas to open up boxy rooms. Apart from the obvious ideas such as using light colours, glass, mirrors and decluttering, you can also try some built-in living room storage ideas, such as sofas with drawers and hidden storage spaces. Carefully placed plants can also brighten up small rooms and try to scale down on some living room furniture, such as coffee tables, side tables and unnecessary chairs.

How do I choose a living room colour scheme?

The colours and styles you choose for your front room or living space should obviously reflect your personal style, but sometimes it can be difficult to decide on a colour scheme or style that will fit with the rest of your home and work with the space you already have. Again, it may be useful to start with a focal point or object of inspiration. If you already have a living room furniture set then it’s best to work your living room decor ideas around the colour scheme of the furniture. The same may apply if you have a picture or set of art pieces that you wish to display. If you are looking for modern living room ideas then block colours, clean lines and feature lighting work well in a lot of living rooms. Grey living room ideas are popular as they give a sleek, crisp edge to modern furnishings. If you’re a little shy of bold statements, then stick with living room designs that have neutral colours for your main pieces of furniture, and then have fun with accessories such as cushions, throws, rugs, mirrors, pictures, plants and ornaments.

How should I plan my living room redesign?

If you’re starting completely from scratch you should first think about where the static elements of your sitting room will be – the fireplace, plug sockets, TV aerial port, phone socket, doorways etc. You don’t want to have arranged all your living room furniture and decor only to discover you’ve placed your whole media centre on the opposite side of the room to the aerial and sockets. Next, it’s probably best to think about your seating seeing as that’s usually the main focus of living rooms. You don’t want your sofa or armchairs to overcrowd your living room but you need there to be enough seating space to accommodate everyone that will be using the room on a regular basis. This is where clever, small living room ideas such as window seats and small but comfy seats and stools can be useful; don’t just go for the largest sofa you can squeeze into the space.
