The design of the components of a house begins with the planning of the space. A living room not only brings all the members of the family together, but also facilitates a number of activities such as entertaining and gatherings. A corner of a spacious living room could well serve as a valuable small office with communication, Internet and printing facilities. Create a welcoming aura for family and guests with a promise of relaxation and serenity. An aesthetically well-designed contemporary living room is breathtaking.
The interior spaces will depend on the design choice and also the cost factor, which decides many things. If the space is congested, a large living room would subtract from the bedrooms and passageways, kitchen and bathrooms. An engagement will have to be worked out well, with the family deciding the priorities. However, a spacious living room has many advantages.
The residences often represent a company or a philosophy that finds expression, perhaps in the entrance, the door and also in the interiors. The entire setup would work like a big ad and rightfully so. Get to work fixing the room with an adequate budget. If renovations are to be done, it is well worth the effort, time and expense. The spirit of the home often depends on the living room that is common for everyone and also for the guests.
Expenses on furniture and carpets, curtains and cushions
Luxuries aside, certain aspects such as abundant lighting, curtains and furniture, cushions and rugs are essential, the more colorful the better, matching or contrasting with walls and floors, depending on the intended effect. Adornments such as artwork and performance pieces lift moods and feelings. Electronics has become mandatory nowadays.
A new construction has many advantages
While additions and renovations can be challenging, a new building offers exciting and dynamic possibilities. A palatial living room, perhaps enclosed in glass, with a view sailing through greenery or the blue sea could be mesmerizing. Not every living room can achieve a fairytale effect, but designs can create wonders that look like masterpieces.
What would be the dominant color scheme? Many people opt for minimalist grays and browns, creams and yellows. Those are fine, but a dramatic effect is achieved by introducing a couple of dark and bright shades of red or blue. Calming impact with an uncluttered expression remains with a beam of lightning-like effect. Contemporary themes would work well with some luxurious marble mosaic tiles on the floor or walls.
