Small rooms have their own challenges due to limited space, but large living spaces can also have many problems. Larger than average rooms may be great for entertainment and living, but they are neither inviting nor functional in everyday life.
The question then comes up, how to best decorate your large living room? Even if the room is not large, it can be difficult to place furniture if it has a confusing shape or connects to another space. So, these inspiring tips and images can be applied to different room sizes and shapes, or even larger rooms!
1. Multiple uses:
Large rooms are more than just a sitting area, but you may need to find ways to make the most of your room’s size and shape. Identify several possible functional areas in the room, such as a chat area (or two or three!), A media area with TV Unit designs, a desk area, a console or game table, a dining room, or perhaps a reading area, or even a resting area with a bed without storage.
2. Divide the room:
You can add ceiling beams, half walls, or columns (such as those between the family room and the kitchen) to visually divide your room. Carpets, curtains, wallpaper and furniture arrangements may be used for added versatility. It creates a visually comfortable space in a large room. Sofas, couches, large couches, tables between chairs, attractive screens, large lights, curtains, or even plants that turn away from another space can help divide the space.
Lighting can make a difference in the atmosphere of a room, no matter the size of the room. Fortunately, large rooms often have lots of windows so daylight is fine. You can choose two or three large lamps of similar shades and combine them with thin, unobtrusive metal wall or floor lamps to illuminate the entire room. You can also prevent the lamp from overloading by mixing it with a glass lamp.
4. Use space:
Large rooms have sofas against one wall and chairs against the other, often with too much open space between them. If you need to shout to talk to someone sitting across the room, the furniture may be too far away. In large rooms, you can move chairs away from the wall to create a much more comfortable chat room around a fireplace-like focal point. You don’t have to worry about empty walls. You can use the wall space for art, sideboards and consoles, benches and shelves, or a bed without storage where you can bring your things together.
5. Repeating Furniture:
Large spaces tend to have empty space, which can seem a little unexpected. One way to put large interior rooms together is to repeat. By repeating the textures and colors of the fabric on chairs and cushions, you can look around the room and feel visually comfortable. Doubling up on furniture and adding multiple chairs, tables, or TV unit designs can all take up that empty space and create a sense of pattern.
Using these simple tips, anyone can transform their large space into a comfy living area that is warm and inviting!
