Common room decor

What would an ordinary living room look like? It can be considered that a common living room decoration is one that doesn’t have a proper concept. The environment has a medium size, without any type of differentiated footage.

Besides, it’s that decoration that you can use as a wild card, more neutral, with traditional elements, such as a sofa, rug, paintings, coffee table, rack or television panel.

For common room decor, interior designers’ tips are based on balance:

  • Prioritize a base of neutral colors;
  • Add sofas or armchairs according to the size of the room;
  • Choose a neutral center rug;
  • Complement the walls with pictures;
  • Use lampshades and lamps;
  • Take advantage of the television wall with shelves or niches;
  • Use a rack or panel for the television;
  • Invest in a coffee table;
  • End tables are interesting, if they fit.

  • Take advantage of the walls to leave the floor free;
  • Leave windows and doors free for light to enter;

  • Avoid coffee tables;
  • Networks give the feeling of having more free space.
