5 Tips For Decorating Your Living Room

Modern Living Room Furniture Calgary

It always seems that when you’re hosting friends and family, everyone congregates in the living room. Whether it’s for family game night, a girls night in or the Stanley Cup Finals, groups love living rooms. It’s the hub of nearly any home: it’s cozy, comforting and full of life.

But how is it looking? Since the living room tends to be the heart of the house an update can be a daunting endeavor. But don’t worry, BE Modern, Calgary’s choice for contemporary furniture, has a few tips to help you rejuvenate your living room.

  1. Colour Choice
    If you choose a neutral colour for the walls like a shade of white, tan, sage or slate for your walls then add dimension to the room by choosing furniture and accessories that are rich and colourful. Craving brightly coloured walls? Balance them out with neutral coloured furniture and accessories.

  2. Dimensions
    Make sure that before you buy any furniture or accessories that you’re fully aware of the space you’re working with. Some homes have angular corners that require a bit of a work around. Modern furniture stores like BE MODERN offer unique pieces that can really flatter these odd shaped rooms and accentuate their unique qualities.

  3. Texture
    You can add personality to a room by incorporating uniquely textured pieces. Whether it’s a set of fluffy or feathered pillows or a textured clay vase adding different textures to your living room will give it visual appeal.

  4. Mirrors
    Mirrors are an excellent way to add depth to a space and make it feel larger. Small living rooms benefit by appearing large and large rooms can benefit from the added light creating an ethereal ambiance.

  5. Lighting
    Depending on the tone of the room, the amount of lighting and the lighting fixture can truly transform a room. For instance, modern chandeliers add richness to contemporary dining rooms and sharp, direct lighting makes it easier to work in the kitchen.  Living rooms typically require a mixture of light, so play with overhead fixtures and lamps so you can adjust the amount of light based on your needs.
