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 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.

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.

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?

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.

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.
