Good living room storage is almost as important as a good living room layout. Clutter can build up quickly in a space that’s used by the whole household every day, so it’s important that everything has its right place. A coffee table with drawers or a hidden shelf is perfect for keeping remote controls within reach but out of sight. Footstools that open up to reveal a secret storage compartment are another neat tidying trick, especially in small living rooms. Open shelving is great for books and ornaments, but it’s useful to have some kind of drawer or cupboard storage in your living room as well, where you can tuck away things like laptops and other items that you don’t want on display. Remember to leave plenty of room for any furniture with doors or drawers to open properly.
In an all-white room, there should always be some sort of pop of color. Doing so breaks down all the white and brings a focal point to the room. Focal points are always good and interesting. Choose a bold hue such as blue, red, yellow or green or use accent chair in one of those shades. If you want to add an intricate touch without adding color, texture is the way to go. The easiest way to do just that is to add a rug. Rugs are great for added décor and they come in multiple different colors, designs, patterns, and textures. You can pretty much use any rug you desire and bring the area back to life.
Deciding on a focal point will really help with space planning—a TV, fireplace, chandelier, artwork, et cetera. Once that is determined, the furniture arrangements can fall into place around it. If the living room involves a television, note that the viewing distance for a standard TV is between 8 to 12 feet maximum, and the viewing angle is no more than 30 degrees. So the main sofa, couch or sectional should be placed facing that wall.
