The impression you want to set.
As the social centre of your home, it says more about you than any other room in the house. Colours, patterns, furniture and accessory choice, it all comes together to create an impression of who you are.
Regardless though of what personality type you are, comfort and functionality go a long way in bringing together a well laid out room. What do you use the room for? Entertaining, watching TV, reading a book, homework; spending time considering this will help you plan the focus of your room.
Oversized rooms can be just as tricky as a small room to furnish as they can feel cavernous without the right ambiance setting. Pull furniture in from the walls, and consider how sofas or chairs could help divide up the room, particularly with a lounge-diner. In a smaller room ottomans and stools can act as ideal seating for entertaining without having to clutter up the room with lots of furniture.
Some ideas to think about
Living Room Furniture
Modern, contemporary, traditional or old world; the style of each piece of furniture should complement each other. They can be of different colours or patterns but keeping the same style will help your room come together.
Most livingrooms contain a sofa, armchair, coffee and side table the position of which may be limited by windows, fireplaces of doorways. Take measurements of the available space so that you can shortlist when browsing; a snuggle chair (two seater chair) is a great alternative to a sofa if short on space.Browse our living room furniture
Living Room Flooring
Think about the atmosphere you want to create in your living room. If you would like a warm and cosy feel then carpet is going to be a simple way to create that impression. With an older house perhaps you want to embrace the rustic feel, in which case hardwood flooring would be a beautiful compliment to your surroundings, using rug combinations to bring in some texture.
We have a wide selection of Carpet, solid wood, Moduleo karndean, laminate, and luxury vinyl tiles browse our shop for more information.Explore our flooring options
Living Room Blinds
Window dressing can hugely alter the light cast into a space, in the living room which is used for so many different activities it’s advisable to go for something that’s flexible.
Curtains are the traditional route for the family area, however when twinned with some geometrical shapes or solid colours they can bring a contemporary feel to the room. Blinds offer great flexibility and venetian can be a great way to obtain privacy as well as maintaining light levels.View a sample of our selection
