It’s the centre of attraction: Furnish your living room with such exceptional ideas that the minds of your guests just explode and they sit back, enjoy.

Let the room have panoramas like paintings, drawings or photography that steal the capture leaves you in awe.
Set a theme: Theme plays a vital role and there are a number of websites and magazines that help you choose a theme and your budget criteria. Paint is by far the cheapest and easiest way to give your living room an entirely new look. Best part, if you do not like the colour, you can always change it down the lane. Remember you don’t need to paint the entire room the same colour. You can opt for neutral colours that will merge well with natural sunlit colours to really make the whole room pop.
Furniture’s, curtains and drapes: The colour of your living room must go well with the colour of your furniture. Investing in furniture is hard, but is always worth it. Couch is that one place where we youth hang out for hours. Another important thing is make sure that you place the larger furniture and sofas against the walls. By doing this you will save a great amount of free space in the middle of the room that helps in creating illusion of more space in the room.
Curtains and drapes depend on your decor, theme and your budget. Because most visitors come to your living room, bright colours are very attracting. Draperies add an elegant look and they are not only used for shading but also give privacy to the living room. Area rugs can also be used to cover marks and patches.
Perk it up!! Plants or bouquet of flowers make the room more natural and vibrant. They freshen the air and add so much life and calmness to the room.
Lighting is another way to update the look out of your room. If you are not using overhead lighting, you can use lamps instead which adds an elegant look. Be sure to place the lamps in places that support its uses. Like beside the furniture if want a good reading.
