WHERE TO START WHEN DECORATING YOUR LIVING ROOM:
When decorating your living room, which is arguably one of the most utilized spaces in your home it can be nothing short of a challenge. This can be the case whether you are starting from scratch, or redesigning something you already have. To simplify this, we find it to be best to start with finding inspiration, and look at your room with fresh eyes even if this means a blank space or moving existing furniture out to get an empty slate. At the very beginning it is so important to determine the budget you want to stay within. Figure out where you want to save and where you feel like a splurge is necessary. We recommend to start BIG, and find that sofa or rug that really starts the vision for the whole room. Work with the correct sizing of your space, don’t choose pieces that make your room feel smaller. Selecting that sofa or sectional or whatever it may be will really help you kickstart the rest of the room as well. We will dive more into where to go next, but always consider these main tips: Always measure the space, be smart when selecting your sofa and rug, purchase multi-functional pieces, and get creative on the artwork/objects.
CHOOSING THE CORRECT SOFA & RUG:
One of the most important things to remember before selecting anything is to measure your space, especially before ordering a rug or sofa. These large items can be a hassle to return and exchange, but getting exact measurements can help reduce that as much as possible. As we were mentioning before after taking measurements if you start by picking your sofa first, consider choosing your rug the next step. These two pieces go hand-in-hand so much that it’s best to select your rug while your sofa inspiration is still fresh on your mind. Rugs are a very high traffic area in that room so it is best to pick a very durable option. If you are following a color scheme keep the rug in mind for that, and consider what color selection you made for your couch. For our Dream Home we chose to do a neutral sofa, and throw in a stunning bright teal rug to really give the room some brightness and pops of color!
GETTING INSPIRATION & SETTING FURNITURE INTO PLACE:
After purchasing your main items, it is time to set them into place and complete the rest of the room with décor of your choosing. We recommend looking at our Pinterest page under the “Living Room Inspiration” tab to get a feel of the setup you are wanting and see how others have done it. We strive to be as helpful when it comes to helping customers get a feel for their space and what they are going for, and Pinterest is a great place to do that at. After you have checked inspiration, we recommend setting the room into place. Start by laying your rug, then placing your sofa, adding in your coffee and side tables, and adding additional lighting with statement lamps. You can use the link included to look at our Pinterest Inspiration categories, and hopefully find the perfect setup for your space!
