The living room is a place for comfort and leisure. It's a place to relax and entertain family and guests, and in modern homes it's typically furnished with comfortable furniture and a number of electronics, including televisions, DVD players, cable TV boxes, sound systems and gaming consoles. Blending today's electronics with style and comfort to get the perfect living room for your home takes a little creativity and some interior design finesse. When arranging your living room, most people think of the typical configuration of a TV in front of the couch and chairs. But consider the way people move through the house and how they enter and exit the living room before placing your items.
Use your living room to make a design statement. If you're drawn to clean, modern lines, use minimal furnishings and lighting. If you have a limited budget, make a statement with one item such as an unusual cocktail table. Olivia Rassow of Elle Decor says the cocktail table can be the most important piece in the living room. For the ultimate in natural lighting, consider replacing your old, outdated and dingy windows with fresh replacement windows. Large picture windows compliment living areas wonderfully and shaped windows can add a stunning architectural focal point to your home.
