Arranging your furniture. Arranging your furniture can be difficult but it doesn't have to be if you follow these simple rules: Firstly, never block a window or doorway and make sure all pathways around the room are clear. Secondly, put your side table or coffee table near the seating area. Thirdly, within a conversational area make sure that the seats are no more than three to four feet apart.
Lighting is also something to bear in mind when designing your room. The lighting can be from fluorescent bulbs or you can have enough windows to allow more light.
When coming with design ideas for your living room, you just have to consider the brightness. A living room should be bright and have all the happy and bright colors visible. A bright room will not only attract members of the family, but it will also provide a memorable experience for whoever pays you a visit. A bright room will set the tone and mood for anything taking place, and you can also spice that up by adding some bright colored flowers, curtains and furniture that will suit it. In your design ideas, try as much to do away with dark and dull colors.
