SETTING UP YOUR LIVING ROOM
The family meets in the living room. It is celebrated and laughed, played, read and watched on TV. The right living room furnishings ensure coziness and an individual ambience. But how does it work? Here are some tips on how you can set up your living room perfectly and make it your most favorite room.
You should consider
Anyone can set up, can’t you? That’s true – but with our tips and tricks, you can turn your living room into a breathtaking oasis of well-being. We will show you how to arrange furniture correctly and how important the architecture of a room is. How the matching colors come to the wall and put everything in the right light.
Sofa, armchairs, chairs
Everything must be in order, even in the living room. Do you have two sofas? Classically arranged, they face each other. If you have only one, the sofa, armchairs and chairs usually form a rectangle – but try a more playful version. This makes many rooms even more comfortable. A corner sofa or a Recamier also seem casual. A sofa without a full back rest or side rest is referred to as a Recamier, nowadays it is often integrated into a couch.
Would you like to try something new? Just back your seating furniture with a table in the center of the room. You will be amazed – this looks very elegant with the corresponding room size.
Become a creative interior design expert
Apartments with sloping ceilings are cozy – but not so easy to set up. We will help you! If your room is narrow, place the wider furniture on the long side of the room. It is important that the furnishings are rather low – this makes the living room visually larger. Beautiful home accessories and mini furniture like an oval coffee table loosen up the room.
Especially in small living rooms with sloping roofs or projections, it is sometimes time to try until everything has its place. Practical, for example, are special shelves, which you attach directly to the wall in the appropriate length. Or just stack different sized upper cabinets on top of each other – at the bottom they grow large and upwards they are getting smaller and smaller. Chic shelf cubes close the last gaps, sliding doors ensure order. And if you like it flexible and light, rely on shelves with rolls.
Colors come into play
The smaller the space, the brighter the colors should be. Make sure that the wall color matches the color of your sofa. In addition to the classic white – cool and classy – the possibilities are almost unlimited. The living room quickly seems uncomfortable. If you’re a fan of green era, paint only one wall. So you set a lively accent and do not overload the room. Do you love the color chocolate brown? Please only paint in a large living room – otherwise dark colors will quickly appear cramped.
Tips for a bright home
Your living room is now furnished – but the right lighting is missing. For a living room with 20 square meters of space we recommend at least three light sources. Ultimately, the main issue is that the light output is large enough – measured in lumens. There is a simple formula for this: you need about 100 lumens per square meter. You can find the information on almost every package. Alternatively, our sales consultants will be happy to help you in the stores.
However, the most important thing in lighting your living room is the right mix of direct and indirect light. This will create an atmospheric atmosphere for romantic dates or cozy reading evenings on the couch. A dimmer is handy for the luminaires on your fashionable seating group. This way you can adjust the brightness of your individual mood.
