Keep The Big Picture In Mind When Selecting Living Room Furniture
You’re all set. You’ve made your colour choices; you know what kind of carpeting you will get. To put it bluntly, you are ready to start your home redecoration project. Before you commit all the way, consider your living room furniture selections. Many people pick their living room furniture around a large couch. There are other ways to approach living room furniture that may make the room truly unique. Think outside of the proverbial box and you may just come up with some furniture picks that will really impress your family and guests.
No Couch Allowed
The thought of not having a couch in the living room causes some people to panic. We’ve all had living rooms with the couch as the focal piece of furniture for decades. It is ingrained into our subconscious. It is just the way things are supposed to be. Remember interior design is about knowing the rules so that you can successfully break them from time-to-time. So get couches out of your plans… if you dare.
Instead of a couch, this approach is going to rely on several smaller chairs and benches. It may seem like a radical change but that is OK. You will get used to the idea soon enough. You can even map this out on a piece of paper to get an idea of how it will work. Choose a style of wooden or rattan chairs that will fit in with your overall colour scheme as well as a bench that will comfortably seat two to three people. How you lay the room out is up to you. You will probably want to purchase some cushions for the chairs and bench to make them more comfortable.
This type of living room design makes it easy to change things around in a flash. The lack of a couch will take some time to get used to, but it will pay off big time when you get the bug to rearrange the furniture. With no couch in the living room there will be no tendency to fall asleep in front of the television or for the kids to slouch around in the living room being lazy.
This approach may not be for everyone, but if you like to rearrange furniture frequently, this could be the most mobile living room layout you have ever seen.
