Finding the right interior design for your apartment’s living room isn’t always easy. It’s a space that must be practical as well as aesthetic, and finding that balance is difficult, especially without knowing what to look for. Getting everything you need out of a living room means having space to entertain, relax, and enjoy what your apartment has to offer. Below, we take a look at some of the most important considerations to make when decorating an apartment living room.
Using Area Rugs
Getting the most out of a space sometimes means finding ways to make it feel larger than it really is. A bigger area rug can help expand a room and lends itself to opening your apartment up, helping rooms flow into one another much easier. A large area rug in the center of your living room, perhaps under a coffee table or ottoman, can make everything feel complete, even if you already have carpet down.
There are a lot of furnishing options out there that double up as storage. Wherever you can get multiple uses out of something, you should try to. This may include a vintage dresser to serve as your TV stand, which could offer much more storage than your typical TV stand would. Seating with built-in storage or a large chest as a coffee table could also allow you to keep extra blankets, board games, or whatever else you want to store in your apartment.
One thing that trips people up in apartments is not realizing just how much space is available to them. This is often because they’re not utilizing the vertical space in their apartment, leaving all kinds of opportunities unnoticed. Taller storage shelves can do wonders when compared to bulkier options out there.
Colors & Art
A large, open shelf bookcase adds a touch of color and allows you to display all of your knick-knacks, books, plants, photographs, or whatever else you want to show off to your guests. Finding some space to put some personality into your living room really makes your apartment feel like home.
