Living room

Whether it’s a front room or part of an open plan space, a living room is one of the most used rooms in the home. 

It must be functional and comfortable while reflecting your personal style and any other design preferences.

Here are some things to consider for living room interior design:

•    Sofa – the right size and shape
•    Functional and flexible lighting
•    Well planned storage
•    Right furniture size
•    No rules for colour

Living room interior design considerations

The sofa is probably the key element in this space so making sure it is the right size and shape for the room is the first step. There are a variety of options here, from Chesterfields and Ottomans to corner units and modular sofas.

Additionally, well planned storage will avoid the feeling of clutter. That could be built-in options, bespoke shelving units or statement storage pieces. Lighting is another important aspect. Having the flexibility for it to be bright when needed or cosy and dark makes a real difference.

Living room interior designers can assist with all of the above elements to help you create your perfect space. With a wealth of experience, they have invaluable insight into which types of furniture, lighting and storage work best depending on your needs. This can eliminate trial and error and spare you endless research.

How to find your ideal living room designer

To get the best results, it’s important to find an interior designer who’s experienced with living room projects and matches your style. But you don’t want to face rejections from designers that:

•    Are looking for bigger projects like full house transformations
•    Require a bigger budget than you can afford
•    Don’t offer the services you need
•    Have a completely different style to your own
