Use your living room to make a design statement. If you're drawn to clean, modern lines, use minimal furnishings and lighting. If you have a limited budget, make a statement with one item such as an unusual cocktail table. Olivia Rassow of Elle Decor says the cocktail table can be the most important piece in the living room. For the ultimate in natural lighting, consider replacing your old, outdated and dingy windows with fresh replacement windows. Large picture windows compliment living areas wonderfully and shaped windows can add a stunning architectural focal point to your home.
If you use your living room for TV viewing, gaming, listening to music and surfing the Internet, your electronic items will quickly add up. DVD players, cable or satellite TV boxes, Internet boxes, game consoles, and speakers can clutter up your space and get in the way of style and decor. Reduce electronic clutter with an attractive entertainment center that incorporates cabinets and shelves to organize electronics and store accessories. Living room storage options include hutch-like cabinets with shelves and bookcases on either side of TV stands.
