There are few rooms in a home that are more versatile than the living room. Some people keep their living rooms extremely formal and only sit in there with company. Other families almost literally ‘live’ in their living room and watch television and spend all of their time together in that space.  So what is a person to do when he or she decides start a living room decorating project?  How do you proceed, particularly if you are not a professional or someone who has done a living room design project in the past?  That’s easy – hire someone who has done this many times. All Decorist designers have done many living rooms and can help you through this process with ease.  Below are a few ideas to consider as you embark on your living room decorating project.

 

Decide on the Main Activity

As we mentioned above, every family seemingly has a different idea in mind when it comes to how they are going to use their living rooms.  Clearly, how someone is going to use their living room will largely define, or should, how they are going to decorate it.  If you’re going to spend a lot of time in there with your family, make comfort and durability your priorities.  If you’re going to keep it formal, then you should look to maximize the style and look of the pieces and décor.  Decide on that question early and your living room design project will get simpler.

 

Decide on a Style

For some reason, living rooms seem to be the room in the house where quite a bit of random furniture and wall art winds up. That’s generally one of the reasons that people decide it’s time to do some living room decorating. Therefore, you should decide on a style right away so that you can gain a better idea of what to look for as you choose your pieces.  You should make a decision on something that fits you and your personality, and for the most part the details will then begin to fall into place. No idea of what your style is? Our designers can help you quickly find your style!
