It can actually be extremely beneficial to vary texture even when using natural woods and more traditional styles in your interior decor. Many can worry about matching too many natural materials and patterns making a space look old-fashioned and uncoordinated.
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.
The sizes that are used for the living room are 4X6 feet and 6X9 feet. Larger living rooms should have more than one piece on the flooring. You can also use smaller ones to place by the fireplace preferably in front. In order to promote unity and harmony to the living room use similar colors and styles.
