From a simple, low shelf in the living room that can hold much more than the TV to modular units that can adapt to your varying needs, your choice here is dictated by your living room size, style and color scheme.
Even though it is the couch in gray that seems to be the most popular these days, a fabulous sofa in black, white or even a blend of both the colors is a timeless choice that never fails. The beautiful sofas have remained as relevant a century ago as they do today! The style, materials used and finishing might have changed, but the allure of black and white has remained constant. Since most of us cannot afford to change the living room couch (or have the energy for it) with changing color trends, these seemingly neutral additions are a safe choice. So, why wait!
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!
Reclaimed barn wood or old planks of wood from the attic given a new lease of life might not always fit in seamlessly with the aesthetics of a contemporary living rom. If you are looking for a finish that is far more urbane and classy, the accent walls in redwood, cedar or other locally sourced woods make a good option. The idea here is to cut back of excesses and to keep the visual appeal of the wooden accent wall minimal even while allowing the natural grace of wood to shine through. The more neutral the living room is, greater will be the impact of this woodsy composition.
Unless you have been living under a rock for the last two years, you would be no stranger to the geometric decor trend. Geo decor has found its way into every room of the house with homeowners replacing traditional round mirrors with those featuring hexagonal frames, the simple lighting fixture with wiry, geometric pendants and the common square or rectangular coffee table with something a lot quirkier. In a living room dominated by simple, straight lines and plenty of monotony, a hexagonal coffee table or one with an abstract, polygon outline can make a huge difference indeed.
The wooden end table with its rustic finish feels as much at home in modern homes as it does in traditional and farmhouse settings. Combine raw wood with glass and you have an even more elegant and exceptional side table that draws instant attention. Those looking for a bit more ‘luxury’ can opt for a side table with marble top and slim metallic base.
