Living Room Design Ideas

More formal than a family room but less formal than a parlor, a living room is the place in your home that sees both everyday family and special guests. It’s also a great place for taking on remodeling projects of all sizes. If you want to give your living room a fresh new look, start by browsing the design photo gallery for inspiring living room design ideas.

Common Living Room Design Mistakes to Avoid

For the most welcoming and stylish living room, you’ll need to consider how your design plans impact flow, layout, and everyday comfort. So before you put any of your inspired living room design ideas into action, read through these common decorating mistakes (and how you can fix them). Not including multiple sources of light. The windows and one overhead fixture don’t count as two light sources! For the ultimate ambience, you’ll want to have a variety of light sources (think floor lamps, table lamps, and wall sconces) so you can adjust the mood accordingly. Arranging furniture according to aesthetics only. Your living room furniture should not just be pleasing to look at, but should also be accommodating. Think about the flow of the room: is there enough space for people to get up and off their seats, without bumping legs? Are people seated too far apart for practical conversation? Does everyone have access to a coffee or end table for setting down beverages? All your living room might need is a little bit of creative furniture shifting to make the space more functional and enjoyable. Hanging art and wall décor at the wrong height. When hanging up framed pieces, consider how they look from both standing and sitting perspectives. Is the goal give the room good aesthetics only when perceived as a whole? Do you want your guests easily see (and appreciate) your carefully collected pieces? By understanding how you want your décor to fit into your overall living room design, you’ll be find the best level at which to hang it. (Pro tip: interior designers recommend the center of your artwork being at 60 inches above the floor.)

How to Choose the Right Living Room Décor

Perhaps the most fun part of a remodeling project is picking out the décor. Of course, it’s important to remember that unless you have the budget to remodel your living room every couple of years, you’ll want to make selections that won’t look dated too quickly. Keep your living room decorating ideas balanced with a sense of moderation, and your interior décor is sure to be stunning for years to come. Find décor inspiration at the design gallery, where you’ll find a collection of living room design photos. Posted by professional contractors, these pictures are real examples of how remodeled living rooms look in homes of all shapes and sizes. You can even save your favorite photos, creating a custom design gallery that will serve as a helpful reference in your home improvement plans.
