The living room is where you will spend most of your time in. Being a space with multiple functions and often integrating a dining area with a rest area, this usually requires many furniture and decoration features.
If, in the past, these rooms used to be large and open, many people nowadays feel that it is almost impossible to create a functional environment, with all the necessary elements to simultaneously have a beautiful and organised room.
The truth is that while it may seem impossible for you to create a welcoming environment at first, it is still possible to do so in this room of the house ... and even relatively simple. There are several tricks to make this room look bigger and promote conviviality and well-being. Learn more by taking a look at our tips to optimise your living room.
1. Avoid dark colours
You may love the darker tones, such as blue, black or red ... but if your room isn't very big, the painted walls in these tones will further close up the room and make it look smaller. Try to use lighter shades on the walls of this room, such as white, beige, light gray or pastel colours.
These will make the room look bigger right away.Similarly, avoid really dark tones on the couch and curtains, although you can use some decorating elements (cushions or candles, for example) to make occasional contrasts and enhance the beauty of the space.
