Luxurious living room spells different to everyone but each of us has a common notion of what is luxurious and not. While some people’s standards of luxury are more inclined to overdoing the décor, design and theme of the living room, there are those who keep theirs minimal but still achieve the lavish effect in the living room. But how do they do it?
The major medium of this approach is to keep off the visual clutter. Visual clutter could spoil any good design in the living room. This could be a misplaced vase, a wrong choice of flower arrangement or any unnecessary items that doesn’t contribute well in the room or worse, prevents the living room from getting “tied” with itself. But how can this be achieved?
1. Choose a single style and run with it – “Hodgepodge”, “medley”, and “mishmash” are some of the most inappropriate terms to use in decorating a living room or any part of the house for that matter. So the key here is to find a single design or theme that appeals to your taste then work to achieve your desired design with all the necessary details. You can search through interior design, architecture and other magazines in these categories for model homes which complement the type of living room you want and pick ideas from there.
For example, you could get the idea of a luxurious modern living room as characterized by maximized use of daylight, glass panels, natural wood and cubism-like decor. Straight lines are the general feature of the modern luxury living rooms as these create lesser clutter and expose the little things that could create the messy lines. But remember to incorporate curves and flowing lines to break the monotony.
2. Know the dimensions of the room – It is a common notion that large rooms are more luxurious looking since they project the intimidating effect. However, their smaller counterparts can also boast of something as they could be easily treated and decorated. Also, they make efficient living rooms with intimate settings. The thing is, one must know how to work with the space that one has.
3. Adding the decors – Small things matter in bringing the appearance of luxury into your living room. An elegant vase or side table could make the difference so be sure to keep an eye on these smaller details.
4. Luxury comes with a price – You can’t of course expect to get a luxury living room without paying a price. However, this doesn’t mean that you have to spend a fortune on all of the items in your living room. Try to find a good blend between expensive and less expensive items like a designer odd chair and a décor you bought from a garage sale.
