DESIGNING THE PERFECT HOSPITALITY OR LIVING ROOM FOR YOUR HOME
To us, one of the greatest joys of home ownership is the ability to host family and friends – whether that’s in a cozy living room, around a kitchen island, or on a sunny porch.
Those certain rooms are almost made to be entertainment spaces, but the best way to upgrade your hosting ability is the living room! It may sound daunting but creating the perfect home living room is the only way to improve your feelings of cozy and comfort.
We provide design, inspiration, as well as a list of everything you might need to get started in this guide.
The style of the living room, the room it will be in, and the hanging lighting or ceiling lights you want to illuminate are all things you should consider before you start designing your living room.
We’re all for going with the flow, but asking yourself these questions beforehand will help you set aside the room and the necessary funds for your ideal living room in your house.
AMERICAN COUNTRY-STYLE LIVING ROOM VS. NORDIC MINIMALIST LIVING ROOM
What’s the difference between an American country-style living room and a Nordic minimalist living room? It’s essentially just a matter of plumbing: American country style features a relaxed arrangement of furniture and accessories with a homemade sensibility, while Nordic minimalist, which strives to create space and simplicity, has a distinctively spiritual and philosophical undertone.
Scandinavian design, which is founded on a history of practical, functional, and relaxing home-keeping, is fundamentally pragmatic—and leaves plenty of room to embrace the possessions you love.
SELECTING AN APPROPRIATE SPACE IN YOUR HOME
The location of the living room in your home is another important consideration. The living room is typically located in the middle of your home. There, not only family members but also visitors can have a good time.
Other locations in which a home living room would correspond with your house style, house size， house type, or house distribution. If you want another suggestive guidance, we would be glad to receive your email.
SELECTING A STYLE
Last but not least, we advise harmonizing the living room’s design with the home it will be located in. A constant look throughout your entertainment area will be achieved by matching the living room’s design to the house’s design, whether it be a nordic minimalist or an American country style.
You may find a ton of different room aesthetics in a shop-by-style area if you’re starting from scratch or even if you just need some more inspiration.
ISLAND & LINEAR CHANDELIERS
A linear or island chandelier is always a terrific choice for a living room, especially if you’ve opted for the American countryside design. An island chandelier is a chic, useful technique to distribute even lighting over a huge space—ideal for lighting a house!
Whether you prefer American country-style chandeliers or Nordic minimalism design, your personal sense of style depends entirely on the look you want to achieve in the space. The two choices that are shown below demonstrate the various aesthetic and practical paths you can take: choosing a more concentrated, conventional chandelier or something a little more open and airy!
A SINGLE OR A GROUP OF PENDANT LIGHTS
If you want flexibility and customization without losing functionality, pendant lights are a terrific choice. These hanging lights are excellent for customizing your living room lighting, whether you need a single pendant light for a living room or many pendant lights to illuminate a greater surface area.
Check out the guide to pendant lighting ideas if you need inspiration or direction on how to use pendant lighting effectively.
PANEL LIGHTS AND WALL LIGHTS
We are aware that not every household has enough area to hang a chandelier over the living room. A wall lamp or sconce is the ideal replacement for overhead lighting to illuminate your living room space.
Saving you money and space while providing ambient illumination! If your living room is going to be the focal point of your home, this type of lighting will be ideal.
