Optimized Living – Layouts that bring your Living Room to Life

Posted on


The living room sets the tone for the vibe of your abode. It is where you entertain guests, watch TV with your family, unwind after a long day at work, or just generally feel alive around people. It is therefore important that considerable thought be put into the decor and layout of this space.

While it may be tempting to pick up a design magazine and replicate the look of the room from one of the featured designs, remember that your home is a reflection of your personality. Form follows Function is the basic principle of modern design. No matter how tastefully decorated a space, it cannot be considered a success until it is used and enjoyed by the people it is meant for.

Flow forms an integral part of your room layout. It is absolutely essential that layout decisions are a factor of how people move in and around the room rather than the other way around.

From a décor and layout perspective, the first thing to do is provide the room with a focal point. In most homes, this tends to be the television. A tall bookshelf or a piece of art work just as well when it comes to providing a visual focus point to the room.

Next is providing visual balance by filling out the details around the focal point with furniture and décor. You can start out by defining spaces by using color or furniture items. Bright colors help define a space while light colors add a touch of openness to it.

Choose furniture, décor pieces, and colors that help create visual cohesion. A well-thought-out living room arrangement can help you avoid impulsive purchases, random furniture arrangements and unnecessary frustration. Turn your living room into a hub of life and activity that you love spending time in.
