Tips on Living Room Design with Broyhill Furniture

These days, the living room fills numerous roles, which can make decorating it a challenge. For some, it is a formal room reserved solely for entertaining while others use it as a casual room for activities such as watching TV, movies, or reading. Regardless of the purpose of your living room, it will most likely need seating, accent tables, bookshelves or media storage, and many other pieces of furniture. Below are some guidelines for creating an inviting and comfortable space to gather family and friends that will make your living room the best place in your home.


Set the Living Room Mood with Color

The color you choose will have a big impact on the atmosphere in your room. Colors can relax or energize, depending on their intensity, saturation, coolness or warmth. The Emily Casual Style Sofa by Broyhill is a relaxing addition to your living room. It provides the perfect place to relax at the end of trying, stressful day. The back cushions, fitted with multiple compartments, keep the fiber evenly distributed and anchor them in one place so that you don’t have to constantly rearrange them or return them to their proper places. The individually wrapped coils create a place where you can sit for hours in soft comfort.

Ceiling and Walls

Since the living room is traditionally a public space, the walls usually get a more formal treatment than other rooms in the house. To make your living room welcoming, choose a color or treatment for the wall that reflects your personality and style. You can add a textured treatment to the ceiling to add depth, and it doesn’t have to be 60’s popcorn. Try a swirl pattern or ripple pattern, or even faux or real ceiling tiles. Crown moulding adds a finishing touch.

Comfortable and Stylish Flooring

Always keep in mind that the living room is a public space, so select floor coverings that offer comfort as well as create a design statement. Vibrant wall-to-wall carpet can set the foundation for a bold mix of florals and stripes, while soft neutral flooring highlight art or furniture. Hardwood floors with area rugs are popular choices as well as ceramic, stone, or marble tile that can be warmed up with an area rug.

Where’s Your Focus

A focal point will anchor the room and help draw you into the space. The TV is almost always the real center of attention. In addition, an eye-catching piece of art or glorious view are also great focal points for a room.

Make Room for Conversation

Since your living room is a gathering space, make sure the furniture arrangement promotes conversation and interaction among its occupants. Pull couches and loveseats away from the walls and position them so that they face each other. If your living room is large enough, you can divide it into two conversational areas to create an intimate and comfortable atmosphere. Chairs and ottomans can be used to expand the circle while maintaining the intimacy.
