Living rooms are spaces for relaxation. Spaces to unwind, chill and may be catch on your favourite TV shows or movies. They must also be welcoming spaces to entertain friends, family and other guests. We gathered a few essentials to add to your living room to make it as versatile as possible. A space for you as well as your guests.
Display Your Passion With Coffee Table Books
You may or may not love reading but adding books, especially hardcover or vintage books to your coffee table is a fantastic way to add some style to your living space. Display books that motivate you or those that reflect your passion for a more personal touch. Having books that are more visual than textual would be best suited for the purpose. The displayed books give you a reason to sit back, relax and enjoy time in your living room.
Add Warmth & Freshness With Candles
Candles are romantic and relaxing. Their warm subtle accentuating light will definitely make your guests feel more comfortable. Pick up scented candles to provide for a distinct sensory experience as soon as you enter the space.
Play With Light
Lighting is key in any room and even more so in your living room. Refrain from using only one major lighting source. Instead use a combination of light fixtures. Complement ceiling lamps or chandeliers with a chosen style of table lamps. Go further and enhance all of it with some form of accent or mood lighting. You can also direct light in such a way as to accentuate a particular feature in your living room such as a piece of art or sculpture.
Throws & Cushions
Throws may be a winter thing but making them a permanent part of your living room will definitely make your space look cozier. They add textures and layers to your space and on chilly nights would be your perfect snugging partner. Cushions are also a good way to add coziness to your space. Consider adding more cushions around your couch. Going for contrasting patterns and colours. Throws and cushions are without doubt essentials for a living room. Take time exploring your options and think about materials, feel and sizes.
Invest In An Ottoman
An ottoman is a versatile piece of furniture. It can be used as spare seating for extra guests or as a foot rest. Pair it with a serving tray and it could double as a fantastic coffee table. It surely is a must in every modern living room.
An Audio System
Just about anyone appreciates music. Set up a great looking device to play your favourite tracks, listen to the radio or add some cool background music. Turn up the volume during your house party for some dance moves. Don’t forget, looks does matter! Your living room is a visually stimulating place with tastefully selected furnishing, art and style. Having a cheap ugly looking audio system would certainly play music but it will pose as a constant eyesore in an otherwise beautiful space.
Invest in our suggested essentials for your living room and be sure to have an awesome space. A versatile space dedicated to your daily life as well as for when you have guests over. A space reflecting yourself while being cozy and inviting enough for your guests.
