When it comes to decorating, details matter. The right fabric, lighting fixture and window treatments can elevate even the most basic room into something truly special.
Elevate Your Living Room
When it comes to creating your dream living room, here are some of our favorite design elements
#1 Choose Luxury Upholstery Fabric
When choosing fabric, consider the upholstery. Luxury fabrics are made from high-quality materials and have a soft, luxurious feel. They are durable and easy to clean, which makes them ideal for busy households.
Luxury fabrics often feature unique patterns or designs that can add style to your living room without being too bright or distracting. If you want to make an impression on guests but don't want them staring at every surface in your home, consider choosing a luxury fabric for one key piece of furniture instead of decorating everything with it.
#2 Design a Custom Sectional
If you're looking to completely transform the look, feel and function of your living room, consider a custom sectional. Sectional sofas are ideal because they let you choose the configuration that best suits your space and lifestyle. Whether you want to go all out with a large sectional sofa or create an intimate lounge area with smaller pieces, there are endless possibilities to suit any need.
You'll also be able to choose from hundreds of different fabrics and leathers for your custom-made sectional sofa — including Italian leathers that feature unique hand-finishing techniques like hand pleating or cording — to create furniture that speaks directly to both your personal style and taste in comfort.
#3 Add a Built-in Entertainment Center
A built-in entertainment center is a great way to make the most of your space and create a focal point for your living room. Built-ins are also stylish and functional, since they can be used for books, games, movies, or anything else you want to display.
You can use this idea even if you don’t have much wall space available by creating an illusion of depth through cleverly placed mirrors on one side of the built-in unit and a window on the other side, and there will be no shortage of storage in your living room.
#4 Elevate Your Window Treatments
One of the easiest and most effective ways to elevate your living room is by choosing window treatments that complement the rest of your home. You have a wide variety of options for window treatments, including different types of shades and curtains, as well as drapes or sheers.
If you're looking for an elegant look, consider velvet curtains with grommet tops. These window treatments help block out light while still letting it filter through. You can also opt for café-style panels that are hung from the top or middle of the window frame (they're very popular in kitchens).
If you want something more casual, consider a sheer curtain panel—these allow some light through and can be hung from above or below the top of your window, depending on how much privacy you prefer; if there's already a valance overtop then go ahead and hang these behind it.
#5 Feature a Unique Accent Floor
One of the best ways to elevate your living room is by choosing a unique accent flooring material. You can choose from patterned flooring, durable and easy-to-clean materials such as slate or hardwood, or even custom designs that match your home’s décor.
Your floors are going to see a lot of traffic throughout the day, so if you want your floors to last, they need to be able to take a beating without cracking or chipping away at their corners.
Choose durable materials like ceramic tile or stone for this reason, since these materials are strong yet beautiful. Also be sure to choose something that will add beauty and warmth into any room—especially one as important as the living room. Choose something bright and colorful like yellow oak if it matches your style; otherwise look into neutral colors such as gray woodgrain.
