Now think about what you actually need and what you might desire to have space for - in other words separate your needs from your wants. For instance you might need space for a sofa TV and music lighting and a coffee table and sideboard. You might want space for toys and books DVD and CD storage and your hi-fi speakers. What you can actually fit into your room will depend on the size and shape of the space you have. You may have to be ruthless in your choices - it is important to obtain a balance between the areas taken up with furniture and open areas you use for access around the room.
A living room can be described in many different terms. For some people it is a simple seating area or lounge area. Some people would consider their living room as the main living space in their home where guests and family gather to watch TV read and talk.
Asian styles can include a variety of colors and textures. For Japanese go for a calm meditative look. Soft blue gray brown or green will complement subtly used hints of brighter colors and flowers were artwork. Chinese style can be achieved using bold colors such as red or gold to accent dark woods. Whatever style you choose pick only one see it through and don't go overboard. If the room is not comfortable it is not livable. Keep your thoughts clear for what the room will be used for. Factor in where the light and space in the room is coming from. Choose one or two choice elements you love rather than cluttering the room with every piece you like.
Open spaces do attract clutter. The more space we have the more we try and fill it often with things that could easily be tidied away if only some storage had been planned for them. Built-in cupboards are a solution here but if your room does not suit this style then think carefully about some other options. Solid oak sideboards or oak cupboards work very well. A natural wood finish helps to keep the living space look open and spacious and their solid construction will resist many knocks. Solid oak and indeed solid pine can be easily looked after - minor scratches and marks are easily sanded away and a light application of oil or wax will bring out the natural warmth and give the furniture a really mellow appeal. Cupboard space like this will give you plenty of room to tidy away toys DVDs and books.
The principles of feng shui dictate that you never place furniture close to the doors that are used to enter a living room. Even if you don't buy the whole Eastern philosophy thing this is a rule that really makes a lot of sense for an illusion of spaciousness. But you need to pick furniture that isn't overlarge. A medium-sized or compact sofa can seat people just as well as a larger example it can leave a lot of breathing room behind in the room. Not having a lot of space to lay out a living room never meant compromising on style. The style part is something that is purely up to you.
