The living room is a central space in the home where we spend time relaxing and relaxing. Therefore, it is important to design your living room to your personal taste so that you feel at home and comfortable. If, like most of us, your home ends up being populated with bits and pieces of furniture you’ve acquired over the years but without the overall sense of style you’d really love, it may be time to take a fresh approach. Your living spaces should be practical, but that doesn’t mean they have to be dull. Contemporary living room furniture can optimise floorspace, making a small room look bigger and bringing a sense of harmony to your home. For modern living room furniture in true Scandinavian design look no further. Choose from grey fabric sofas, couches and armchairs and a whole host of small and large coffee and side tables available in wood, metal, marble effect and concrete look.
So you've picked the perfect furniture the next step is accessorise with cushions, rugs, blankets and throws. Be expressive with your choices, go wild with colour or complement your living room colour tone matching shades.

1: MAKE SURE YOU HAVE DIRECT ACCESS TO YOUR WINDOWS
A classic mistake is to place a sofa directly under a window or in front of a window section. Arranging a living room in this way not only makes it difficult to clean and water plants on the window ledge, but it also shuts out all the wonderful light. Let your living room breathe and move your sofa away from the window to let the light in.
2. CREATE AIR IN BETWEEN YOUR LIVING ROOM
It’s a good idea to separate the living room’s various features, to create smaller sections. Allow plenty of floor space between the room’s “departments”, and arrange the space so that obstacles aren't created. A good way to do this is to use rugs to seperate the different sections and zones. Also consider whether your favourite armchair might not look best with its very own section of the living room: e.g. in a corner, with a floor lamp behind it. If you fancy an extra place to sit at the coffee table, an alternative is to use a cute little pouffe.
3. CHOOSE FURNITURE THAT SUITS THE SIZE OF YOUR LIVING ROOM
It’s hard to draw a limit when decorating a living room. Maybe you have plenty of room, so then there is no problem. But if you only have a few square metres at your disposal you have to take this into account. Choose furniture that suits the size of the room, for example a large corner sofa works best in a large room.
4. AVOID OVER-DECORATING
Be careful not to have too many things and effects in your living room. However, if you're the kind of person who loves to surround yourself with things that mean something to you, then go ahead and coordinate them, for example by placing them in a shelving unit or a glass cabinet with space around it. This will set everything off to an advantage.
You know the scenario. You buy a new dining table and before you know it, it ends up exactly where the old one was. We humans are creatures of habit. Once we have positioned our furniture it often remains in the same place for years as if it is glued to the floor. But it might be a good idea to switch off your autopilot when decorating your living room. Give various ideas a try. Take pictures of them from various angles until you find the absolutely best solution.
