8933 Living Room Ideas

A living room, or a lounge, is a space that serves multiple purposes. Whether you are relaxing with family, entertaining guests or hanging out with friends, the living area is often the central space that brings people together.

Traditionally, the living room was the first room in which guests were received and entertained, which explains its air of formality and accompanying décor and furniture. Traditionally separate from the more informal family room, a living room would also host a display of more sophisticated items, such as heritage furniture, art pieces or an elaborate fireplace.

The key question to ask when decorating a living room is whether it is inviting enough. It is after all the first room a visitor is invited into, so it is important to ensure that there is comfortable seating and that furniture pieces don’t get in the way of traffic flow. One way of making space inviting is to include photos, art pieces or plants.

Some families choose to use their living room as a family room, due to space constraints or purely as a personal preference. If you choose to make the living room your go-to daily space, then it would be wise to put extra thought into the functional aspects of furniture, room layout and even storage options.
