ad collaborative post // The living area is one of the first rooms you step into when entering a home. You have probably seen a few luxury lounge areas online and would like to adopt an elegant theme for your home. However, when you think about the cost of hiring an interior designer, you quickly shudder and place the thought in the back of your head. Fortunately, this article will illustrate easy ways to create a luxurious living room.
Make your home symmetrical
Experts in interior design reveal that symmetrical designs in your home can create balance and elicit feelings of calmness. You can start with an architectural feature such as a fireplace or use a central table or credenza as your focal point. The next step would be to place two-floor lamps or identical mirrors on either side to create some symmetry.
Incorporate large-scale furniture
You might not have control over the size of your living room when you move into a new house. On the other hand, you might prefer a smaller living room, which feels cozier than a larger lounge space. Whatever the case, you can still create the illusion of grandeur in a small living room by adding large-scale furniture with luxurious fabrics and finishes.
Select suitable flooring
Your flooring options could significantly impact the overall outcome of your luxury living room. A rug can make the room look and feel cozier and absorbs noise, preventing the occurrence of an echo. If you have a large living room, ensure you get a huge rug that will fit underneath the front two legs of each piece of furniture.
Hang some artwork
A common feature in most luxury living rooms is the presence of high-value art. It would be best to hang such art pieces on a blank wall or where you know they will stand out. For instance, you could get Julie Blackmon, Homegrown art piece, which oozes class and would be perfect for a home setting. You could also check out some of her other pieces and determine which art style would better suit your overall theme.
Use bold window treatments
Window treatments might not be your first thought when designing a luxury living room. However, the right choice of window treatments could take your lounge area from drab to fab. We suggest hanging your
curtains a bit closer to the ceiling to create the illusion of grandeur. It would also be best to choose a bold design that will stand out, especially if you have large windows.
Pair your colors wisely
If you aim to create a modern luxury living room, we highly suggest carefully considering your color palette. You wouldn’t want your lounge space to look too tacky. We suggest you choose one solid color as your foundation and add complimentary colors or tonal shades to bring the whole room together. Your foundation could be your favorite couch or an accent rug.
As you have seen, creating a luxury lounge area is a manageable feat. You don’t need to break the bank to make your home look good. We hope you will consider the suggestions above so that you can wow your guests whenever they come to visit.
