Laurent. Living Room. October 10th , 2017.
A formal, parlour-style living room demands decorative lighting to impress, whether it’s a statement standard lamp or a designer chandelier. You might also consider adding accent lighting, such as a picture light to draw attention to a favourite work of art. It’s a good idea to have at least two electrical circuits for your living room lighting – one for the main light, and one for softer lighting – as well as dimmer switches so you can control the level of light to suit the time of day, task and mood.
Go for a smart piece of furniture that has a mix of open shelving and concealed storage space so that you can view the television and display books and a few favourite accessories. Stow away more day-to-day items in drawers and cupboard space. Choose from design-led floor-to-ceiling furniture or sleek modern sideboards. A modular, L-shaped sofa and stylish armchairs can be arranged to create a living area for relaxing and family gatherings. Add a rug and table or standard lamps for a snug look.
A coffee table with drawers or a hidden shelf is perfect for keeping remote controls within reach but out of sight. Footstools that open up to reveal a secret storage compartment are another neat tidying trick, especially in small living rooms. Open shelving is great for books and ornaments, but it’s useful to have some kind of drawer or cupboard storage in your living room as well, where you can tuck away things like laptops and other items that you don’t want on display. Remember to leave plenty of room for any furniture with doors or drawers to open properly.
