3 Things to Avoid When Redecorating Your Living Area
Achieve a cozy and spacious space that you would love to come home to
The living area is the special part of the house that can serve multiple purposes. Aside from using it to welcome guests into the home, it can also be an extension of the dining area during parties as well as a makeshift bedroom for guests.
Since it can be quite a busy space, it's only essential that you keep it clean, organized, spacious, and relaxing. If you are redecorating this part of the house soon, make sure to avoid these three things:
To be able to fully enjoy the living area and your comfy sofa, it needs to be free from mess. Having ample storage is important to avoid clutter. Invest in clever storage solutions like wall-mounted shelves and multipurpose furniture. As much as possible, limit the number of decor pieces that you will put in the area as too many accessories can turn into a visual clutter.
Cramped furniture layout
To maximize the floor area, you need to find the best furniture layout to avoid cramped and crowded spaces. Don't block entryways and make sure that the furniture pieces do not disrupt the traffic flow of the space. When arranging your furniture, make sure that you can still move around freely and that you and your guests can still pass by and go to another area without the fuss.
RL Tip: Avoid bumping into corners and furniture! Go for an L-shaped layout if you’re low on space and set your furniture against the walls.
A bland look
While we want a spacious living room that caters to everyone, we shouldn't forget to inject just a bit of color and personality into the space. Consider adding accent pieces such as colorful pillows and throws. You can also create a charming vignette featuring your favorite pieces or style. A vase filled with fresh flowers or a group of mini succulents can also help add life to the space.
