We are spending more time at home now than ever and this can be a great time to revamp our rooms with gorgeous home decoration and comfy furniture that fit our style and personality. Since a home consists of our loved ones and we are spending a bulk of our time with them, it is prudent for us to think about the common space where all come together - the living room.
The living room or some call it the drawing-room is probably the most important place for a family. It is where we entertain our guests and loved ones. It is the collective representation of you and your family and should be decorated in reflection to that.
While keeping that in mind, we need to know that our living room has to be one of the most versatile spaces in our home. This room can be a formal space solely reserved for delighting guests or a more casual space where family members can relax, rest, and pass the hours of their days reading, watching tv, and enjoying other activities.
Since this room can take on several different roles, getting just the right décor might be a bit of a challenge.
So, what you need to do is play the role of an interior designer and visualise your living room. Think about which colour you want for this room and which furniture would suit best. What mood do you want to set - casual, chic, comfy, minimal, or formal? Who will be spending their time in this room and what purpose do you want this room to serve?
Usually, living rooms come with plenty of seating arrangements; sofa sets, ottomans, or floor seating to serve as a showcase of the house. The room's furniture is more of a "one-time" purchase for most families; furniture sets last a long time in the house before they are replaced. So, it is important to plan well as you have to live with your purchased furniture for the long years to come.
Your seating furniture should somewhat blend in with your wall colour but an easy way to spruce up space is by adding a pop of colour to your living room.

Home and Beyond's geometric cushion covers can beautify your living room and brighten up your sofas, plus, it comes in handy for sofa naps if you can throw in their faux fur throw blanket.
Of course, it takes more than just a sofa set to make the living room work - side tables and coffee tables can make this room both functional and complimentary for the living space. It is not just for your coffee mugs, but it entails much more - a coffee table helps with the flow of the furniture and can be used as a footrest. It can be the pivoting place for all conversations, games, and can be used for enjoying a meal as well.
Side tables and coffee tables found in most furniture stores in Dhaka can add storage space for books, magazines, board games, and other items.
Now that we have gone through some of the essentials, regardless of whether you are a person who loves to host get-togethers or someone who likes to lounge in comfort - your living room is your canvas. So, why not put some extra effort?
You can use accessories like lamps, small showpieces, vintage items, bookshelf, paintings, hanging wall décor, or a flower vase for the sake of your self-expression. Your living room décor will make you feel at home. But over cluttering never helps, so plan out which room style you prefer.
Whether your style is modern, classic, contemporary, industrial, chic, bright and bold or anything else that is out there - design your living room harmonising your style. If the room's existing lighting is a bit dim, adding some lamps could make a big impact.
If you are in love with antiques, then Trove Home is just the right place for you. Trove Home, a store of delightful things has many antique lamps and lanterns with intricate designs that will create an atmosphere of warmth and beauty for your living space.
Sometimes, we put so much effort into our living room that we miss out on the biggest opportunity of decorating our dull walls. Wallpapers and interesting colours can bring your walls to life but artwork can be a great way to add interest to those walls. Find the focal point in your room and tell your own design story with artworks and paintings. Do not sacrifice comfort for style though. It is better to feel good than to look good.
