Whether you’re finally giving your place a revamp or you’re getting ready to move into a new home, designing the living room is a top priority. Not only is it the first room that people see as soon as they step inside your home, but it’s where most people spend the majority of their time.


Now, some of you might think that decorating a living room is tough work, but it is not as difficult as it seems. First, you’ll need to understand your personal style and character, and then simply follow a few interior design tips along the way!


Here a few things to keep in mind when designing your living space:

1.   Get good lighting.

This is one of the most important aspects of decorating that is often overlooked. To make sure that your living room is well lit, it’s important that you don’t rely on a single light source. In fact, try to incorporate three layers of lighting: ambient, task, and accent lighting.


Ambient lighting is best created with a pendant ceiling light that’s not too bright. For task lighting, you’ll want a pair of lamps on the side tables, or wherever you might need more focused light. For accent lighting, sconces work really well for highlighting artwork you want to draw attention to.


2.   Invest in contemporary art canvas or vintage canvas prints.

A bare wall is like a vase without flowers; it’s drab, uninspiring, and generally useless. Whatever kind of person you are, adding decorative wall art to your living room can quickly transform your space into an inviting and personal space.


If you want a distinct look that’s edgy and cozy in equal measure, you might enjoy some vintage canvas prints. But, if you want a more classic feel, contemporary art canvas prints are a great option.

3.   Plants, plants, and more plants.

There is something so lovely about seeing your leafy friends grow. But, aside from the joy that a room full of lush greenery can bring, plants are also capable making a room feel fresh and more vibrant.


For a clean and natural look, place your plants in corners or in between your sofas. You can also get some plant stands so your plants are at different heights for a more interesting arrangement.

4.   Get a rug.

An area rug should be the finishing touch to your living room. It seems like an added expense that you can live without, but it plays an important role in your home—particularly when it comes to comfort, safety, functionality, and aesthetics all in one.


Area rugs provide your feet with a fluffy surface to rest on, prevent slip-and-fall accidents, outline living room spaces, and add brightness and vibrancy to your room.


Decorating your living room isn’t as tough as you think. To create a warm inviting space for you and your loved ones simply refer to these tips and stay true to yourself. Happy decorating!
