1. Statement Pieces
A couple of years ago, unusual pieces of furniture were reserved for modern coffee shops, restaurants, hotel lobbies, etc. If you’ve always admired these pieces, we have great news for you — statement pieces have never been more popular and you can now incorporate them into your living room as well!
Go for a deep blue velvet couch, a bright red armchair, or a cheerful yellow bench — the choice is all yours and the options are endless.
Make sure that you have enough space for your statement piece and pay attention to materials and colors. Your newest addition should go well with the rest of the furniture in your living room.
Also, don’t overdo it — one fancy piece is everything you’ll need to make the entire room appear modern and refined.
2. Bamboo Floors
Needless to say, no room is complete without an elegant and expensive-looking floor. If you are thinking about having your floors done, bamboo flooring is an option worth considering. This type of floor is the toughest hardwood you’ll find on the market.
On top of that, bamboo floors are:
Safe for your family
Easy to maintain
Ideal for families with kids and pets
While all this is amazing, you probably also want to know whether bamboo floors will meet your requirements style-wise. The answer is yes, without a doubt. This floor type comes in a variety of colors and styles, which makes it a great option for every home.
Pick from a variety of chocolates, browns, reds, creams, blondes, whites, and greys. We’re positive you’ll easily find the perfect combination of style and color.
While hardwood floors such as bamboo are extremely attractive, they can look a bit dull if you don’t put anything over them. That’s why rugs are perfect accessories. They come in all shapes, sizes, textures, patterns, and colors you can imagine.
What’s more, they are suitable for kitchens, bedrooms, hallways, bathrooms, etc. You can put them literally anywhere. However, they look especially good in living rooms and can make a big difference in how the entire area looks.
If you’re into patterns, pick something colorful that will make your floor pop. On the other hand, if you are into minimalism, get a monochrome rug that will make a subtle but big difference.
A perfect rug doesn’t take up too much space but it isn’t too small either. To get a perfectly sized rug, find some guidelines online and make sure to take measurements before you go shopping.
Lastly, you’ll need some details — even the most fashionable living room will look boring without them. If you aren’t confident enough to buy extravagant pieces just yet, that’s fine. You can start small.
Buy a couple of frames and pick a wall where you’ll hang them. Select models of various sizes or go for one size if you like symmetry. Also, you can buy multiple frames that look all the same or purchase frames of different styles and colors. Finally, you can hang your frames in a perfect line or do it randomly.
If you aren’t sure what you like when it comes to details, browse through some home decor magazines and see how other people decorated their living rooms. There are countless ways to incorporate details into your home — just think about what you like and don’t be afraid to experiment.
