Your home is your sanctuary, the place you can relax and be yourself. It’s also a great place to chat with friends and entertain if you wish. Potentially the two most important rooms in the home are the kitchen and the living room. While the kitchen is said to be the heart of the home, the living room is undoubtedly its soul. You can only truly relax in your living room. So, I have put together some ideas to add finishing touches to your living room.
It’s worth noting that the average Australian spends approximately one month of their life a year in front of the television. This makes it important to make the room personal with the right finishing touches.
Fortunately, there are several finishing touches that can make a big difference to your living room.
Add A Rug
Once you’ve chosen a floor and painted the walls you have completed the basis of your living room. But, this is really just the canvas, allowing you to add your personal finishing touches. It’s these that make your home feel comfortable, loved, and where you want to spend time.
This is when you should consider adding a rug to your living room. You can choose the thickness, shape, material, colour, and even any patterns on the rug.
It’s the perfect way to enliven the living room while adding your own personal tastes and style.
Remember The Soft Furnishings
Alongside the rug, you’ll want to look at other ways to bring colour into your living room. The best approach is to keep the walls a neutral colour and add colour through the soft furnishings. You can go as bright and bold as you like with the curtains, cushions, and even a throw.
The best part about this is that it’s easy and cost-effective to change these elements of the design and transform your living space.
You don’t want to add too many ornaments to your living room. It can make it feel cluttered. But, choosing a few special ornaments will make the room feel more comfortable. It can be a focal point, get conversations started, or simply remind you of specific events and times.
That’s pretty impressive for a finishing touch in your living room.
Bring In Some Plants
Plants are a great way to improve the air quality in your living room. They are also good at making you feel like you’re outside even on a dark and dreary day.? They liven up a living room and can even be used to define certain areas.
Just consider how green-fingered you are, you don’t want to be constantly killing your plants.
Your living room needs a couch and a coffee table, amongst other items. But, to really finish these and the space you need to add accessories, such as books and magazines on the coffee table or some interesting objects in a display cabinet.
It will reflect you, and your personality, and improve the style and finish of your room. Don’t forget to include family memorabilia if it’s not just you living there!
