What's on your floor can add to the decorating style, but if you can not afford new floors in your living room then you can mask your current floors with small rugs with a contemporary design - either a geometric print or a plain sisal rug. If you are lucky enough to be able to afford new floors, check out bamboo floors or slate or clay tile. Sleek lined furniture with chrome accents goes nicely with this look and you might try shopping at consignment stores if you are short on cash.
Dining room sets form one of the most important accessories of any living room. And because of this, they have to match just about everything in the dining room. Sofas, fabrics and the wall should also blend in color so as give your living room an extraordinary look. When selecting color, you need bright colors that will compliment each other and at the same time make your room appears more spacious. Colors such as lemon, white, lemon shades and even peach when combined will give your living room extra space together with a sense of comfort. Dark colors on the other hand may not be the best for your room. Not only will they make the room appear smaller, but may make it appear intense and intimate.
Having rugs in your living room will make it warm and cozy. Without any depth or color, all you see is bare floors and furniture. Rugs make the room look elegant with a touch of essence. No longer will you have to go into a drab looking room that doesn't have any color or sense of style.
