The interior design of the living room needs serious attention, because this place is part of the social life of the homeowner, a place where he has the opportunity to provide comfort to the people who come to visit.
The comfort is not only in the form of welcoming hospitality and treats that spoil the tongue, but also the atmosphere of the living room which is comfortable, pleasant and makes it comfortable for anyone to linger in the room.
A minimalist house with a relatively narrow living room area can be designed in such a way as to be modern, elegant and make people feel at home, by paying attention to the following:
1. Selection of Furniture
The main and most appropriate furniture to decorate a narrow living room is a minimalist sofa with a size that fits the dimensions of space.
Do not install a lot of seats, because in addition to taking up a lot of space also gives the impression of tightness. Not to mention later will make trouble when you want to move positions. The color of the sofa can be chosen according to taste.
But it is advisable to choose a sofa whose color contrasts with the color of the living room wall or vice versa, has the same color motif and test structure as the color of the living room wall.
If the contrast color is the choice, then the modern impression will be presented, and if the same color is chosen, the living room will look elegant and look more spacious.
In addition to the sofa, you can also place a sideboard in one corner of the living room if the area of the room is still possible.
But if not, it should be avoided and do not force to cram space with a limited size with various kinds of objects because it will make the atmosphere of the room seem slum.
The interior design for the living room which also functions as a family room can also be decorated with television, but as much as possible in the form of LED TV with thin dimensions and can be affixed to the wall, so that it does not take up the living room space.
Lighting gives an influence on the impression created by the living room. Lighting that is too excessive will give the impression of heat, otherwise the lighting is too minimal to make the eyes tired. That’s why lighting factors also need attention.
During the day, of course lighting will depend on the sun. To adjust how much light enters, you can use curtains that adorn glass windows.
While at night, the lights attached to the ceiling try to provide enough lighting.
But if you want to create the impression of luxury, use a ceiling lamp that is rather dim and add lighting with enough light in one corner of the room with a position parallel to the living room table.
The purpose of coloring is the use of colors, motifs and textures on the living room floor, walls, ceilings and frames and doors and windows.
Not much different from the selection of furniture, there are two alternatives that can be chosen to determine the atmosphere of the living room as you want.
If the modern atmosphere is desired, then the parts that fill the living room can be decorated with paint, wallpaper or carpets of different colors and try to contrast colors from one part to another.
But if you want an elegant feel and the room looks wider than the actual size, the choice is to match the colors, motifs and textures of all the parts in the living room, and make color gradations in several parts.
To change the color, either in order to make contrast or to match colors, it does not need to be done thoroughly, just by changing 1 – 2 parts, such as changing the color and motif of the carpet floor or by changing the paint or wallpaper on the wall.
By arranging the interior design of the living room as mentioned above, those who come to visit will certainly feel at home to sit for long. Especially if the host warmly welcomes it with an appetizing treat.
