The areas that may be considered as the busiest parts of most houses are the living rooms. They are also the main spaces that create a good or bad impression of a lot of homes today. Because of this, these particular areas have to be perfectly planned and carried out in terms of designs, decorations, etc. for them to be warm and inviting, not only to the residents, but also to the visitors.
There are a number of things one can do to decorate a comfortable yet elegant receiving area. For one, doing furniture rearrangements usually does the trick. Determine where the best focal point is. For example, if you have a grand piano, it may be best to arrange your furniture around it and that is where the guests’ attention will be. You also have to make sure that the way you set your furnishings will not result to a cluttered atmosphere. Arranging in the so called ‘off square angles’ can also result to a more casual feel to the place.
Remember too that the type of colors you use will determine the level of warmth. The shades you choose can either invite people in, or annoy them. Green is a good color as it is welcoming as well as relaxing. Bear in mind that you have to make certain that whichever hue you decide to utilize, it should complement your carpet and chosen decorative stuff.
Placing some statues will surely add to the aesthetic appeal of your house. Those of the marble kind are the most recommended, and if small, are best placed on tabletops. You may choose any theme for your figurines, but the most appropriate will be those formed in the shape of deities, people, etc.
