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 floor should be something you should consider when coming up with ideas for your living room. Certainly you wouldn't want a floor where it is almost impossible to walk but would rather have one where you and other people can move around without having to bump into pieces of furniture. The color and material you use on the floor is also equally important. A common trick to the floor is by using ceramic and mosaic. You can also put fine polished wood so as to give your living a fine bright look.
Firstly you need to choose the colour palette you want to work with. Calming colours are always a good choice such as pastels and neutrals. Choosing these colours will also make it easy to match furniture and other elements together in the room. Remember simple is always best.
