Your living room is the most important part of your home. Aside from being centralized, it’s also the mood-maker of your home aesthetics. Here are 5 nifty living room design tips for all new renovators:
1. Setting the mood
Setting the mood of your living room interiors is a really important part of the whole design, and the most practical way to do that is by picking the right colours. Every colour is representative of a certain emotion; pink for whimsy, navy blue for charisma, white for breeziness, yellow for cheer, etc. What you pick now is going to define the aura of your space for a very long time to come.
2. Design for comfort
Both visual and physical comfort need to be an inherent part of your living room interior designs. You spend a majority of your home life spending time in the living room – be it for relaxation or entertaining. Make sure that your furniture is comfortable enough to accommodate both activities with ease. You can also add cozy accessories like shag rugs, cushions, and throws for added effect.
3. Treat your windows right
Everybody knows that you need ample amount of sunlight in your living rooms to raise your cortisol levels, but you also have to choose the right window treatments for a number of reasons. You can filter out the sunlight with sheer curtains, go for black-out shades if you prefer darkness, and choose roman/roller blinds to ensure privacy from nosy neighbours and tenants.
4. Design for openness
Singaporean homes are small by design, which is why you need to ensure that they seem comfortably spacious on the inside. Since the living room is always at the center of every home, its layout needs to be especially open. So make sure that your furniture is compact enough, that your accessories do not emulate a cluttered outlook, and that your colour/material scheme is selected for maximum breeziness.
5. Don’t forget the outside
Many Singaporean living rooms are connected to small balconies or terraces. It’s always great if you can dress these spaces with just as much passion and zeal as the actual living rooms. You can set up outdoor blinds or trendy awnings on their entrances to filter the heat of the sunlight, furnish them with great outdoor pieces, and even introduce some green elements for some visual diversity and attraction.
