The majority a family’s quality time together is centered in the living room. The living room seems to consistently be the center of every home. In modern homes and apartments, the living room is found initially in the decorating literature of the 1890s, where a living room is understood to be a reflection of the personalty of the designer, rather than the Victorian conventions of the day.
The rise of the living room meant the end of the dedicated room for receiving guests that had been common in the Victorian period. When it comes to especially decorating a living room, it is important to start with the color of the walls and flooring. The living room is intended to be a happy gathering place so light colors work best on the walls.
The main piece of furniture in the new living room design is the sofa. The sofa is where you, your loved ones and your guests sit. The position of a sofa is critical in determining how ‘qi’ or energy will flow in the living room. If you plan on having guests frequently, it is recommended to have a sectional couch; they are perfect for many people to all sit down.
Once your living room walls have been painted, furniture delivered, and accessories installed, you can officially sit down, relax and enjoy your newly designed living room. To be the one room in a home that brings the entire family together is the ultimate purpose of the living room. This particular room also serves as the place where you may entertain guests.
