So you have your traditional living room – furnished with a TV, a couch and two chairs. Now you need to come up with some traditional living room decorating ideas.
There are windows and walls and you just aren’t sure how to make this room your own. Do you keep a theme going with the rest of your house? The process of decorating a living room can be overwhelming.
Because unlike a bedroom, which is generally separate from the rest of your home in terms of guest exposure, the living room can become the focal point of entertainment. How do you integrate your traditional living room into your kitchen and bathroom – the other rooms that are most frequently visited by guests – without it becoming monotonous?
The trick in decorating your traditional living room is to make it your own. Bring your personality into the room and your guests will always feel at home in your room. Incorporate plants or brightly colored fabrics into your living room to achieve a radiant personality.
Keep your windows clear for optimal light or drape heavy velvet curtains for a gothic look. Simple wooden floors or bohemian carpets can completely change the dynamics of your living space and bring your style to the entertainment area.
Many low-key living rooms either remove a television completely from their living room or disguise its presence in an office or behind a wall covering. In other houses, the television is placed prominently above the mantelpiece or directly between the windows. Your tastes can go wild when decorating your living room, which is exactly what is fun.
