Do you ever come home at the end of a long day at work, sit down in your living room and feel a little bit underwhelmed? It’s a nice space, all said and done, but you just have a feeling. The itch that it could be so much more than it currently is. If so, then transforming your living room into a much more luxury living space may be exactly what you need.
With that in mind, here are some of the best ways you can work to design a living room space that is pure luxury…
Light It Up
In the modern home, it’s almost impossible to escape the harsh glare of artificial lighting. No matter how well we use the windows and natural light available, eventually we will have to suffer the sun going down. But, this doesn’t have to be a bad time of day. Not if you are able to utilise the lighting in your rooms in a way that, while not natural, is pleasant to be enveloped by.
Lighting can really transform the overall look and feel of a room, so don’t be afraid to experiment with this and give yourself a little more light to work with. You may be surprised by how much better it makes everything look!
Believe in the Power of Rugs
A good rug can tie a room together. It doesn’t have to make sense, it’s just an aesthetic fact of life. The more transformative a look your rug offers, the better it can help to add that little bit of extra luxury to your living room. For that reason, you shouldn’t just choose any old rug. That won’t be powerful enough to put across your desired message. And remember, bigger is better when it comes to rugs.
Art is Power
One of the most transformative things you can add to any room to bring a new sense of luxury is through a little thing called art. Whether a painting, stature or a toilet seat; art speaks to the very heart of the human soul. For this reason, it is vital that you work to include the power of this art in your living room in order to give it the luxury feel that it truly deserves. As, without this, the blandness from the room could be the most overpowering feeling that your visitors are left with.
Choose Furniture That Talks
Contemporary furniture is one of the more transformative additions to a living room in the modern day. But, it’s still a matter of style, choice and overall personal aesthetic which will help you to complete a room. Just because it’s expensive doesn’t mean it will fit after all. Because, let’s face it, a designer bar stool just isn’t quite right for a living room despite the price tag.
You want your furniture to say something about you, so let it talk.
On the whole, transforming any space is three parts your own personal style and only one part taking advice from others. So use these tips as you will and create a space perfect for your own sense of happiness and belonging.
