Living room, lounge, sitting room, family room and drawing room - just some of the names we choose to call the main room in the house where the family likes to hang out together. Offering a place to relax, watch TV, read, and chat with your mum and dad, sisters and brothers, or invite friends over to join the rest of the crew and watch a movie together.
No matter what shade of color you choose, the way to make it work is to put your efforts into creating balance. Unless you're going for a monochromatic look, pick a wall color that contrasts with your furniture and decor. Balance is very important with dark paint colors. When a room has lots of windows, wide trim and light colored furniture, a dark color can be the best idea possible.
This is why people like to spend more effort on this room than any other in the house on getting the living room furnishings and décor just right, because of the amount of time spent here. Take a look around your family room as it stands, and then make a note of what it is lacking and what you can do about it.
Are there comfy chairs or a sofa where you can put your legs up and have a cuddle with the kids or hubby? Is the coffee table conveniently placed to put that welcome cup of tea or keep the movie magazines handy? How about lighting? Is it harsh and bright or do you have lamps to soften up the atmosphere at night? These are just a few things to consider when refurbishing or decorating this particular room.
