The living room is often the first room people see when they come to visit your home, so you want to make sure it looks good. Everyone’s taste is different, but if someone were to ask me what items should be in their living room there are a few I would recommend. Here’s our list of statement pieces you should include in your living room:
Statement couches and seats are the focal points in the living room. They, and what they’re next to, should work well together and complement one another. With so many couches and sofas to choose from, it’s important to select the right colors and textures for your space. It can feel like a lot of pressure to design something as important as the living room.
But as long as you take your time and research your options, you can come up with a beautiful living room. You can choose a recliner if you want something cozy. You should start by measuring the dimensions of the room and working out exactly how much space you’ll need to ensure you can accommodate everything.
With art, you can really create a space that’s uniquely you. The more personal the artwork, the more it will mean to you and your family. A space you spend a lot of time in should be decorated with your personality and your feelings in mind. There are so many different styles of artwork that you can choose from, you’re sure to find something that suits just the style you’re looking for.
There are so many talented artists out there to choose from. Stop in once in a while to check out the gallery in your area to find one that speaks to you or create something with your own two hands. Art can be expensive but if you can afford a statement piece, go for it.
The thing about fireplaces is that they can come in many shapes and sizes. It’s not like the old days, when they only came in one standard size. There is something for everyone. I love the ambiance that fireplaces can give your living room. In addition, a fireplace doesn’t have to be inbuilt in your home, you can add one to your space when it’s convenient. Especially in winter. Creating a statement fireplace that not only looks good but also gives your living room warmth and ambiance is easy.
You can choose from fireplaces designed for wood or electrically fired ones. Whatever you go for, make sure it looks good in your living room.
People very much take lighting for granted, but it can make a huge difference in the way your living room feels. Ballasts and luminaires are the most commonly used types of lighting for residential purposes. Ballasts are most commonly used for linear fluorescent light bulbs and CFL light bulbs, while luminaires are more commonly used for linear fluorescent light bulbs and high-pressure sodium light bulbs. A great way to get started is to invest in a few of each and to switch them up and see which one you like best.
Mirrors can be an aesthetically pleasing element in your living room. They can be used to make your room appear larger, they reject noise, and they make your home feel more peaceful. A great place for mirrors in your living room is above your fireplace or fireplace mantel.
By hanging a mirror there, you’ll seem to have an extendable space in your room. Using mirrors is an easy way to trick your eyes into seeing more open space in your small room. Mirrors also reflect light, which makes it seem like your space is brighter. So in addition to having a mirror in your living room, you might want to consider opening the curtains more in the mornings.
Carpets and Rugs
Carpets and Rugs are perfect for covering up your old, ugly flooring. They also add a touch of style and elegance to your living room. What’s more, they offer a level of insulation to keep the cold air for coming in. And because carpets and rugs go a long way in making a home look more presentable, they also steadily increase the value of your home.
There are plenty of different rugs and carpets on the market, so you need to do some research to decide which ones are best for you. The first thing you need to consider is the colour of the room. Carpets and rugs will affect the appearance of the room, so it’s important to choose ones that are suitable for the living room’s décor.
Maybe you just moved into a new home, or maybe you’re just sick of your old one. No matter the reason, a new wallpaper is a small, yet dramatic way to change the look, feel, and atmosphere of your space. Changing your wallpaper can be a great way to feel refreshed and to create a warm background for your furniture. Along with a new paint color, a new wallpaper will create a completely different ambiance.
Final Thought on Statement Pieces for Living Rooms
With the addition of statement pieces, your living room will be transformed into a cozy zone. If you’re looking for ideas for statement pieces, think about the room’s unique furniture, lighting, artwork, and accessories. First, you should experiment with lighting. You can do this by using table lamps, floor lamps, or chandeliers. Next, think about what you want your room to be. If it’s a study zone, you should have a reading nook with a couch, bookshelves, and a coffee table. If it’s a cozy zone, you should have an inviting couch, floor lamps, and plenty of blankets. You know your needs and so, start implementing the recommendations above.
