Hidden Storage Ideas For Living Rooms

Everyone can do with a bit more room to stow away all the everyday items that seem to be used on a daily basis. For those with young children, the living room can seem to be a bit of a battlefield, with toys that take over during the day. The key to a successfully tidy living room, whether you share it with kids or not, is adequate storage.

The trouble with plenty of storage is that you can be in danger of making your home’s main reception room look like it is little more than a warehouse. It is fair to say that closets with doors, which you can close, are better at disguising clutter than open shelves, bookcases and cabinets with glass fascias.

How To Update Your Living Room’s Ceiling For A Stunning New Look

Making alterations to the décor of a living room rarely constitutes more than new coat of white paint, when it comes to ceiling treatments.

Modern Living Room Designs That Use Corner Units

Living rooms that make the most of the corner space open up the rest of the room for more flexible accommodation. If you mount your fireplace or television set in the corner of a room, for instance, there is more room to move about in. This is especially worthwhile in a smaller living room and means you can often rearrange your seating so that it is no longer in the way of walkways and doors. Indeed, corner storage units can also double up a banquette seats, freeing even more space.

The intersection of two walls should be more than just a plain junction. Why not pick one corner of your living room and make a feature of it? There is a good deal of display cabinetry to choose from that is specifically designed for a corner position. However, there’s no need to stop there to get a modern and sophisticated look that will enliven even the dullest corner of your home.

How To Decorate A Large Living Room To Make It Feel Cosy

Space may be highly desirable in most reception rooms, but decorating a living room that is way too big for only a few sticks of furniture can be a bit of a challenge. Overly large living rooms can often look great in a photograph but feel like they are cold places to inhabit. However, you can help tame an oversized living room by making it seem a smaller than it actually is. And there is no need to spend a pile of cash on lounge furniture that you do not actually need.

Too much unused seating can make your living room feel like a waiting room, which hardly creates a homely feel. Equally, a large living room that is bereft of soft furnishings will give a Spartan-like feel. Instead of either mistake, break up the space with some advanced design tips. Use colors to your advantage and make the most of your wall space. With the right approach, even the largest of living rooms can be made to feel in proportion and even cosy.

How To Pull Off An Eclectic Look In A Living Room

An eclectic look is never an easy thing to pull off so that it looks planned. Most of us have selected a style for our home’s living room design and try to stick to it. Nevertheless, there always seem to be one or two items that don’t quite fit the bill. If you want to make a virtue of this, then decorate your living room in a deliberately eclectic style.

The trick is to make sure the blending of different architectural and decorative styles is coherent. No one wants to sit in a living room that is just a jumble of ideas. In order to pull off an eclectic living room successfully don’t head in all directions at once. Pick styles that blend but use them in novel ways. Don’t try too many different styles all at once.
