Never underestimate the power of a focal point. Sometimes they appear naturally as windows or built-in mantels, while other times you create them yourself, as with media units and televisions. Whatever your focal point is, make a decision and stick with it. You’ll want to arrange furniture around it as much as possible.
Using area rugs is a great way to define seating areas, but the number one mistake people make in the living room is using an area rug that's too small. Remember that all of the furniture should be able to comfortably sit on the carpet. If space doesn't allow it, make sure that at least the front legs of any large upholstered pieces are on the rug. (Small pieces like side chairs and tables should always have all four legs on the rug.)
Living rooms may be everyone's favorite space in the home for the warmth and coziness they afford, but we have to acknowledge the brilliant work of designers who went above and beyond, turning what's traditionally considered a place of relaxation into carefully curated chambers that also spark our imaginations. Sure, you'll find rolled-arm sofas and tufted ottomans and other creature comforts, but you'll also see unexpected paint treatments, eclectic combinations of antique, contemporary, and custom furnishings, and a slew of other elements that show just how much attention to detail went into each creation.
A living room is one of the most public places in the house, so it should be both comfortable and stylish. Whether you use yours for entertaining or for kicking back with family, this multipurpose space needs to stand up to constant use. If your family room is starting to look a bit tired or dated, it may be time for a little refresh or perhaps even a full makeover.
