Some living rooms are modern and minimalistic, others are vibrant and contemporary, and others boast industrial chic. But if you’re after a living room space that offers you the most comfort, you might not know where to get started.
Creating a comfortable living room space is a bit challenging, specifically because it’s pretty easy to overdo things and end up with a clutter of comfort that leaves the room feeling cramped and somewhat messy.
So, we’ve listed some of the most practical tips to help you create a comfortable living room area that’s ever inviting for relaxation.
Your choice of sofa is fundamental in any living room theme. But since you’re after comfort, it’s best to choose a soft sofa or even browse a few couch beds to have your living room double up as a place to have a movie night where falling asleep won’t lead to nagging aches and pains in the morning.
Moreover, because the goal is a comfortable space, avoid bright and vibrant color sofas. Instead, choose neutral or natural colors because these will ensure a soft atmosphere in your new living room.
Some poufs are perfect for coffee tables. They’re also ideal for a comfortable living room because they’re softer and crafted from fabric.
You can add a display tray or two onto the pouf to hold your coffee cups and other goods from falling over. Otherwise, you could have a glass pane cut to size to transform the pouf into a stable coffee table.
Avoid those patterned cushions that come in all weird and wonderful colors and patterns; these will create decor clutter and rob the comfort and peaceful atmosphere of the room.
Instead, choose large neutral or natural colored scatter cushions that boast texture rather than patterns and pictures. With this, it’s also important to avoid adding too many scatter cushions; one or two per sofa is more than enough.
Next, add a large plain shag rug to soften up the flooring space. But while choosing an area rug, be sure to consider a size guide, so the rug has the right impact.
Lighting is crucial in any room. But because you want a peaceful and relaxing room, opt for adjustable ceiling lights or soft orange bulbs that will ease up the space instead. You can also add a floor lamp in the corner for a touch of accent decor.
Next, choose heavy velvet drapes than hanging from the ceiling to the floor. Once again, stick to the color scheme of neutral or natural tones when choosing drapes for the living room.
Nothing screams comfort in a living room more than a thick textured throw to ensure you can snuggle up for your favorite film. You’ll have the choice of chunky knit throws, heavy velvet throws, or fluffy sherpa throws, depending on your preference.
