Simple Tips for Living Room Comfort
The Right color Scheme
The colors of a room have such a huge impact on its general ambiance and the way it makes you feel. A living room should be warm and be inviting. What is more important is the balance of color in the space. Too much of any one color can be suffocating. A neutral background with pops of color gives a nice balance to a living room.
Flooring has a Big Impact
Hard wooden flooring with a rug or two in the room gives off a timeless elegance, while also being very manageable to clean. If you want to divert people’s attention to some of the other features in the room, simple colors underfoot will draw out the appearance of any artwork, lighting or unusual furniture you have dotted about. If you prefer something different to the traditional hardwood flooring, why not try porcelain tile or stone tile?

Think About Your Focal Point

Surrounding the fireplace, you can also choose an attractive mantelpiece which lends itself perfectly to displaying decor to pop color into the room. Obviously, in many people’s living rooms the television draws attention, but you can also draw people to other features such as an attractive view or striking piece of art.
Arrange Furniture in a Social Way
