Section off your living room with a sofa table along the backside of your sofa. Situate your sofa in the center of the room facing the main wall. Choose a brightly colored sofa and a glass table with a few heavy decorative items, such as a stone statue or solid vase, to make for a really dramatic and sophisticated look. The pairing of the sofa and sofa table will create distinct areas in your living room that will add depth and function.
When you shop for furniture, consider its visual weight. This concept refers to the perceived heaviness of an object based on size, color and design. Pick out pieces that have a lightweight appearance, as heavier ones will seem to constrict a space. Opt for pale colors over darker ones, and select pieces that have legs while avoiding those that are boxy. Glass coffee or end tables will take up less visual space than wooden ones because you can see through them. Any furnishings that don’t obstruct views will make an area seem more open.
The floor takes up a significant amount of square footage and thus is one of the most high impact spaces in your living room. Ue one flooring material, such as wood or carpet, throughout your living room and adjoining rooms to visually expand the space and create flow with your design. In that same vein, avoid interrupting the eye with contrasting floor coverings. Use sofas and cabinets with legs, so the floor fades under the furniture rather than stopping suddenly at a wall of wood or fabric.
The Ellipzes story began in Romania ( a small country in Europe ) back in 2017 when founder and CEO Maurella Lamore launched a blog that would go on to become one of the most popular and successful online magazines to date focusing on interior design and architecture. Currently clocking up an impressive 3.8+ million unique monthly visitors, the site provides daily inspiration and advice to those who are seeking to improve, organise and style their homes. With an archive of 7000+ posts featuring over 90,000+ images of great interior products and architectural projects it is no wonder that Ellipzes has one of the most engaged online communities on the net.
