The basic idea is to set up your living room so that it flows smoothly and conversationally. You do not want a room that is choppy or chaotic with the furniture layout so that it confuses people and makes them feel anxious to be in the room. When you have a comfortable flowing room, whether your sofa is against the wall with a coffee table placed in front of it, or your couch sits openly in the room with a sofa table butted up right behind, you can put a beautiful centerpiece on it that brightens the room, adds a sense of your style and taste, and allows your guests to focus on it and find the beauty in it, and everything around them.
This may seem scary to some especially if you have kids or pets, but white walls in conjunction with white furniture and a light colored floor can majorly brighten a space. Pair your whites with other neutral tones for a clean, concise look, or be brave and go full on white by utilizing different textures and shapes to break it up.
Items that move vertically like tall bookshelves, entertainment units, paintings and striped rugs are all aspects that can elongate a space. The higher the bookshelf, the taller the ceiling and the longer those stripes stretch the lengthier the room seems.
A room’s size isn’t just about the floor space and square footage, but the room’s height. Take advantage of and use your room’s vertical space to help create the illusion of more space. By adding tall objects and décor pieces, you can help to draw attention upward instead of out, to open the room. Ideas include the use of tall vases with tall or layered arrangements, tall paintings or stacked paintings, adding floor-length drapes, floor lamps and tall mirrors.
