The living room is usually the core of any house. We’re not talking about positioning but about importance. The living room is the largest room in the house and the space where family members spend time together. It’s also where guests are being welcomed and entertained. So the living room needs to have a flexible and inviting interior design.
Regardless of the style or type of design you choose for this part of the house, there are a few features that are never missing from the living room. It’s, of course, the sitting area. In the center of this space there’s usually a coffee table. It’s an accent piece and a functional element that, in a way, connects all the things in the room.
Then there’s also the sofa or sectional, where the guests are invited to sit and where you spend most of the time. The goal is to make this area very comfortable and inviting. For that you can either use color and texture or a certain amount of elements meant to personalize the space and the atmosphere such as wall art.
A very nice feature in any living room is the fireplace. Whether the fireplace is working or not, it’s an element that makes the atmosphere cozy and warm. Most often people choose to have armchairs around it and in front of it. It’s very relaxing to sit in front of the fireplace and to either chat with someone or be alone with your thoughts.
Other elements sometimes encountered in a living room include a small work area and a dining space. Most modern and contemporary living rooms are open spaces that are directly connected to the kitchen as well.
