Very important for the living room is your sofa, since it will be the main centrepiece everything else should revolve around it. There are many living room decorating ideas where the sofa is right in front of the all. If you have more space, however, don’t glue it to the wall. Place it in the middle of the room, so as to make it more modern. If you decide to have a carpet, make sure just the front legs of the sofa are on the carpet. If you are looking for a more simple look, you can paint the walls in a neutral colour and buy a different coloured sofa to make it stand out. Many people prefer corner sofas, because they are very comfortable. Plus who doesn’t want more sitting room for when you have friends come over. Pair it with a few printed throw pillows and a colour coordinated carpet to make the room look stylish and modern. Also, avoid big armchairs, because they take up a lot of space. Instead, opt out for stylish S-shaped chairs, for example.

While some people are looking to create a cozy and homey look, other compromise the comfort for an incredibly stylish and modern sitting room. If you have decided to paint your walls with a dark stylish colour, use mirrors on the walls to visually create more space. If you pair the bold colour on the wall with a coloured sofa, you will make even more of a statement. Velvet sofas are very trendy right now. Finish your elegant look with a beautiful hanging chandelier and some plants.

Another thing that many people prefer to have in their living room is a fireplace. Not only does it provide coziness and sophistication to your home decor, but it can also be an amazing place to sit down for a bit of relaxation after a long day at work in those cold winter evenings. Nothing beats sitting in front of the fireplace with a good book and a glass of wine. There are, of course, a few ways you can build your fireplace. If you want the living room to look cozy build a brick wall around the fireplace. Make sure all your furniture are pointed towards it and use warm pastel colours to create a relaxing feeling. If, however, you want that minimalistic, modern look in your living room, use elegant tiles to cover the fireplace wall. If they are dark, use a lighter coloured couch to make it stand out.
