The rising demand for urban housing options in India has led to a reduction in the size of apartments. ‘Cozy’ has become the new word for ‘small’. And cozy apartments are now in trend. However, much attention is to be paid in decorating a cozy living room, otherwise it may look cluttered and claustrophobic.
The most basic task of planning a home decor is the proper placement of your furniture. A wrongly set up furniture can ruin the look of your room. Your living room should not look very cluttered and not very empty at the same time. So you have to strike the right balance for an open and balanced look. Your living room should be functional and very comfortable for you as well as the guests that become a part of your abode.
Create a Floor Plan
The first and foremost idea is to have a vision of how you want your living room to look. For this, you need to chalk out the plan on paper. This does not mean that you have to make a professional blueprint but at least you must know the virtual placement of the furniture so that you can start moving the pieces together.
The Visual Weight Factor
What we don’t realize is that every piece of furniture-whether small or large- carries a visual weight factor. Hence striking the balance between these articles is very important. You need to carry out a harmonious look in the room.
Concentrate on Horizontal Lines
Simple horizontal lines have the power of length which makes your room look taller. Use a wallpaper having horizontal lines with little spaces between them. When you hang wall pieces on them, the wallpaper will create an illusion of more space.
Switch to Modular Items
This is the modern era where functionality means everything. You should try and bring more modular items into your decor pieces. For example, a showpiece that can also be a hidden storage. Modular items are also more mobile which makes transition easier.
Keep Space between Walls and Furniture
To give your room an airy feel, do not stick the furniture to walls. Also, try to avoid sticking two pieces together. The weight factor is in the center of big furniture and therefore the sides should be kept free and weightless.
Stick to Primary Colors
Primary colors are the best for your living room as they create a sense of space. This primary color scheme can be made vivid with some vibrant color throws here and there. For example, beige or eggshell when combined with splashes of dark tan or purple can be mesmerizing. Utilize some pieces that have the same color palette as your room. This will allow a wider vision.
And finally, try to choose multi-functional furniture like futons that can be used for sleeping and as couches. Sofa sets with storage units, wall shelves, floating bookshelves etc will be great.
Place the furniture in a right way and give your living room a picture-perfect look.
