  • Opening Intro -

    Your home’s living room should be the one place where you can gather with your loved ones and feel comfortable.

    The decorations that you choose for your living space should show something about who you are, and the space should also be well-organized so that clutter is kept down.


As you get ready to set up your living room, you can use these tips to create a space that everyone will want to spend time in. These are 4 tips for decorating and organizing your living room in a way that makes it a comfortable and appealing space for everyone.

Start with a General Color Scheme

Your first task should be selecting a general color scheme. Neutral color schemes are the current trend in living room design, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t add a pop of color in there somewhere.

As a general rule, it is best to choose neutral colored furniture that you can dress up with colorful throw pillows or blankets. To pick a color scheme, consider what is already in the house.

For instance, you might need to choose a color scheme that also works well with the kitchen if you have an open floor plan in your home. Once you have a general scheme for color, it becomes easier to plan everything else.

Choose Comfortable and Functional Furniture

In most living rooms, the furniture is the first thing that is noticed. When you visit the living room furniture store, look for pieces that function well in your house.

For instance, you can pick a sectional couch to fit into a corner space or to separate into different pieces. An easy chair is also a great addition to a reading corner or for sitting close to the television for gaming purposes. The furniture becomes your foundation for your living room décor, as it is the first way you begin to explore your color scheme.

Add Accent Pieces

With the main furniture selected, your next step is to pick out the accent pieces that enhance the comfort of your living room.

For instance, a coffee table with storage space gives you somewhere to stash items such as the remote control. You can also use end tables to give people a place to put their drinks as they relax in your easy chair.

Pull It All Together with Personalized Decor

The final touches of your living room decorating plans should include a few personal pieces that make the space truly your own. Consider adding some family photos to the coffee table or fireplace mantle. You can also change out pillows with the seasons and put a floral bouquet on an end table to make it extra cozy.

Decorating your living room is easy when you begin with a comfortable set of furniture that serves as a focal point. After that, the rest is simple as you begin to add in the extras that bring it all together. Once you’ve finished, consider hosting a gathering of your closest family members or friends to celebrate the results of your thoughtful design.
