Your living room is the first thing your guests notice. It’s also the first thing you see when you get home, which can also affect your mood after a long day at work. The ideal living room is a comfortable place: a family area where your loved ones can enjoy, a place where you can relax, as well as a classy place you can use to entertain guests.
Here are some great designs done by the contractors here at Kaodim that you can draw inspiration from:
1. Feature wall behind the TV
Instead of using small trinkets and ornaments to decorate your living room, consider adding a feature wall instead. Feature walls is an ornament by itself, and it adds character to the space. It’s also a piece that can reflect your artistic preferences.
Use dark colours for your feature wall to create a nice contrast for your living room. You can also opt for one with texture, as pictured above, to give it a bit of an edge.
2. High ceiling with wooden beams
Wooden beam ceilings give your home an expensive look. As simple and rustic as it looks, wooden beams are a classically elegant look.
Doesn’t it remind you of a cosy cabin in the woods? This is because wooden decor tends to add a warm feeling to the space. Wooden beams are also extremely versatile as they can go with any type of tile and wall colours.
3. White walls
When in doubt, always go for white. Contrary to what most people might think, plain white walls are actually the most elegant look. It’s simplicity at its best, which brings a hint of nostalgia with it too.
The best thing about white walls is its versatility. You can pair them with any type of flooring: marble, timber, and even ceramic. White also makes your living room look more spacious and bright, allowing it to have that ‘brand new’ look for a longer time.
4. Down lights
Want to make your living room look expensive and sophisticated? Get down lights. Their unobtrusive nature makes them look as if they’re part of the ceiling, allowing the decor in your living room to shine. They also make your living appear more chic.
Pro tip: Install down lights above any painting or feature wall. This will help your feature decorative pieces stand out more without looking shouty.
5. Black and white
Having the most traditional yin and yang colour combination – black and white – for your living space is not a boring thing. This is a timeless combination that will never go out in fashion. In fact, it makes your living room look modern!
Pro tip: Use black on the decor or furniture that you want to draw attention to, eg. window beams, paintings, feature wall, etc.
