Modern living room design tries to cater for the whole range of activities and making the
most of the space we have often becomes a top priority when thinking about decorating and furnishing
The trend in
modern living rooms is for a more open design -
you need to look carefully at the quality of natural light in the room and
how to supplement it with additional light sources.
Wooden furniture with a natural finish is a good choice as it tends to lend a light and airy aspect to the furnishings, as well as giving some much-needed warmth and character.
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
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.
