When it comes to living room decorating there are many styles one can choose from. There are hundreds, if not thousands of options in terms of carpet alone. Maybe you want to go with hardwood, or be adventurous, and try stained concrete. Whatever the case, each element of a living room goes into the overall living room decorating plan that is set in motion when one moves into a home, or renovates his, or her living room.
From early times in the United States (U.S.), up to the 1970s, much family activity centered on the living room of a home. Also known as \"the receiving room,\" home makers took guests there as soon as they entered the home. This room contained the best seating and furnishings. There, the draperies hung finely about the windows. A small piano might reside in the room. A vase with fresh-cut flowers and a bowl filled with nuts or mints might rest on the coffee table. \"Eat something while I fetch coffee from the kitchen,\" a home maker might say to guests.
Living Room Lamps- Having a variety of lamps around the room is an easy way to create a sit-down, relaxed atmosphere. When you're ready to kick back for the evening, switch off overhead lights and turn on these living room lamps for some calm time. Floor and table lamps are also great because they offer a portable lighting solution, which means you can move them to a different area if more light is needed for a specific task.
