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.
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.
Choose a focal point. Choosing a focal point in your living room space is important as you want to accentuate the best features of the room. A window is a great feature in any living room space both for the view it may have and also the light that it lets in. If this is your focal point arrange the furniture near by and make sure both you and your guests can enjoy the view/sunlight. Other focal points in the room include an entertainment unit or a fireplace. These areas in the room should be accentuated as well.
