6 ways to make your living rooms the cynosure of your homes
Living rooms are always central spaces within any home. The idea of a living room is such a universal concept that the general layout has become kind of typical. Most designers implement the same old layout and features within the space, without striving to reach a new level of contemporary. So how to make your own living room stand out? There are many way to that – all you need is a creative license and you’ve got it made. So let’s look at some of the ways you could easily make the living room the cynosure of your homes.
- Invest on the feature wall
The feature wall is the main focus of any living room. You could enmesh it with the typical media wall aesthetic, but sometimes, it’s better to something a little bit different. In the image below, you can see how the designers have encased small planters on an organic surface and highlighted it with focus lighting. The overall effect is glamorously unique.
- Use textures
When you’re limitized by the layout of your plan and the smallness of your space, then nothing can make your living room stand out more than textures. All you have to do is choose select pieces from your collection and feature them in highlight places. In the image below, the curtains and fluffy rug are the main sources of texture and definitely make the room stand out.
- Large openings
Nothing beats distinctive more than opening up your space into other rooms. In the image below you can see how the transparency has enhanced the visuals of the living area by centralizing its layout. Even though every room has its own aesthetic, the soft cream beige and gold scheme of the living room still stands out the most.
- Use your furniture
The furniture scheme is the main element of your living room, so make sure all your pieces have been carefully curated to highlight the style. in the living room below, each furniture piece has a very unique aesthetic which lends to the overall stylistic expression of the space.
Lighting, as the honorary fourth dimension is all about enhancing the visuals of the space. In the image below you will notice how the accents and the fixture itself have given that extra oomph to the otherwise simple space of the living room.
- Creative materials
You don’t always have to use simple high gloss laminates to beautify your living rooms. Sometimes, adding that organic streak is all that it takes to set your space apart. In the image below, the media wall has been designed on the exposed brick effect, which contrasts beautifully with the rest of the contemporary vibe of the room.
