There’s nothing like the warmth, style and comfort of a beautiful living room after a busy day. However, many people often focus on either style or function, when they can have both. Check out our handy tips on how to create an inviting living room.
Anchor Floating Furniture
Is your sofa located in the middle of a living area? If so, we recommend anchoring floating furniture with another piece of furniture, such as a sofa table; otherwise, it might look like a floating island and it could appear to guests that something is missing.
Incorporate Natural Furniture and Furnishings
Polished surfaces can look a little cold and hard, and so they won’t create a warm and inviting space. You should therefore strive to add texture into your living room to create visual warmth for you, your family and your guests. For example, you can incorporate natural furniture and furnishings into your design, such as chunky fabrics, rustic tables, throw pillows and natural fibre carpets.
A Relaxing Sofa
The sofa you choose will determine the comfort and style of your living room. After all, it is the main focal point in a living room. You must therefore pick wisely to ensure you select the right sofa for your interior design and room size. One of the most popular sofa styles to choose to create a cosy, inviting space is a corner sofa, which offers seating for the whole family.

A houseplant could be all you need to add to create a relaxing room you will love to return home to each day. Plants have been proven to boost people’s moods, and they can clean the air, which can improve your health and wellbeing. So, this affordable investment could transform your living room while creating a healthier home for you and your family.
Flexible Artificial Lighting
Brighten up your living room by adding a little flexibility to your artificial lighting. Change a room’s atmosphere by adding a dimmer into an overhead light. You can also create a welcoming space by locating table lamps by seating groups. Layer the light by turning on a range of lights across the living area, such as chandeliers, floor lamps, wall lights and table lamps.
Cosy Up with a Throw
All it could take to add softness and warmth to your living room is a cosy throw. It’s an affordable, stylish addition to any living room, and it will also be a functional fabric throughout winter. So, if you haven’t done so already, invest in a stylish, comfortable throw that will complement your interior design.
Use Different Shapes
Add texture into your living room by using different shapes across your living room. For example, an oval coffee table can complement a rectangular sofa, circular cushions and rugs, and free form decorative accessories.
