Space-savvy living room storage options come in a wide range of styles and the one you choose should not just be about aesthetics alone. While floating, open shelves look simply stunning in all those catalog images and at the furniture store, it can all get pretty messy and fast, if you are not really the ‘organized’ type. Those having to deal with constant chores, busy days and kids might be better off with closed cabinets that conceal more than they reveal. And if you are still in doubt, then shop for storage units that also offer a bit of display space to get the best of both worlds!
You want your decor choices to elevate the style quotient of your sunroom without actually compromising on comfort of seating capacity. Industrial, and eclectic sunrooms often end up with large leather sofas. Since direct sunlight can really damage this lovely couch, it is best to keep it away from the windows and direct light. Plush seating in white with floral pattern or pops of pink is great for the shabby chic sunroom while most tropical, modern and contemporary sunrooms look best when filled with decor made from natural materials. Rattan or bamboo outdoor furniture is a fine option here and you can even think about synthetic rattan decor as a more durable substitute.
A modular sofa need not always be used to usher in bold color. You can still go down the tried and tested neutral route and add a couch in light bluish-gray, pastel pink or just plain brown while embracing the adaptability. Here, it is the functional aspect of the modular couch that becomes the protagonist while its aesthetics feel no different from a regular sofa in white or gray.
Those seeking even more contrast can choose a coffee table that blends unusual form with warmth of wood or sparkle of metal to create a cool focal point. In most modern living rooms the large coffee table is being replaced by a collection of smaller coffee tables or even a trio of stylish side tables, which give a lot more design flexibility. This summer, try out this new look for a fresher and more vibrant living room.
Sure, monochromatic living rooms need not be restricted to white alone. But white is undoubtedly one of the best colors to use in public spaces as it gives the room a relaxing modern appeal and a pleasant environment. Monochromatic living rooms with bolder or darker colors can feel a touch too tacky and you will get pretty bored with that overwhelming visual very quickly. Then you end up with a room that is ungainly, boring and just an eye-sore that needs a complete makeover. In case of the all-white living room, adding an additional layer of color down the line is both easy and cost-effective.
We always talk of the living room as a monolithic unit. Every little detail in the room is like a small piece of the larger jigsaw. Disturb one and you might have to end up creating an entirely new picture! The fabulous and comfy couch is definitely at the center of this delightful setting and is inarguably the most important piece of decor in any living space. A couch can define the style of your living room and as an extension that of your kitchen and dining space as well. It pretty much lays down the marker for everything else and is the one large addition that can transform the living room ambiance.
