Decoration Materials

Initially, you need to decide on the floor covering. Here, the best option will be a monochrome material with no frills: linoleum, laminate, or parquet with shades of wood. The dark floor is used to provide the depth of the room. However, the floor needs to be diluted with light walls.

In order to visually increase the room, you can “raise” the ceiling. For this effect, it is necessary that the color performance of the ceiling be one or two shades lighter than the walls.

An alternative way to raise ceilings is to use wallpaper with vertical lines and stripes or use a vegetable “looking-up” ornament.

Also, the combination of wall coverings is a very effective and popular option. Thus, one wall can be executed imitating stone or decorated with wallpaper, and the rest should be light-colored.

Choosing the Right Color

The living room, the area of ​​which is 190 square feet, should be low-key. The too bright or dark-colored room will quickly begin to irritate and will not cause such aesthetic pleasure. Preferably use light, pastel colors, which predispose to rest and comfort.

A number of optimal color solutions for the design of the living room:

If the room is divided into several functional areas, then you can combine with the color, using both warm and cold colors here. Thus, the dining area can be done in bright colors (yellow, red, gold), but the rest zone can be made in more pleasant tones (green, blue, pastel).

Curtains and Lighting

The organization of lighting must be approached responsibly and very carefully. A large and massive chandelier will not add comfortable sensations. It is better to use spotlights, placing them around the perimeter of the living room. Such lamps are also convenient as they can be placed in any convenient way. For example, you can group them in such a way as to create a feeling of a divided room into several zones.

The abundance of lighting points does not mean that the room should be deprived of natural light. It must also be present. Heavy structures on the windows will not be appropriate and will shut down the necessary sun rays, which is not entirely correct.

However, leaving the windows completely open is also wrong, because it will attract attention from outside, and the owners of housing will be uncomfortable because it creates the feeling that someone is looking at you. Moreover, few people will want to admire the view of the neighboring house or be distracted by the light of streetlamps at night.

There is only one way out of the situation – it is using thin materials, for example, a veil, organza, or tulle. The color should match the walls or be close to them in shade. Blinds or Roman blinds are a good thing. However, they can attract unnecessary attention to themselves, which means distracting from the overall picture of the room.

Furnishing Living Room

It is possible to work through the design of the room for a long time, to make it almost ideal, but to pick up the wrong furniture means spoil everything. The living room, an area of ​​190 square feet should be functional, without any excesses or piles.

The modern market is very rich, so you can use the right design furniture, which is distinguished by its compactness and sophistication.

Furniture that should be placed in the living room:

  • It is best to buy a corner sofa, place it in the far corner of the exit.
  • A neat coffee table for tea drinking.
  • It is able to replace the overall “walls” and cabinets. It is characterized by its practicality and original appearance.

In general, of course, it should be said that it is impossible to give general recommendations to everyone at once, because everything depends on the individual case, the form of the room, the taste of the owner. That is why the design of the room promises to be original and unrepeatable. The main condition for the design of such a living room: functionality, no furniture excess, the free central area of ​​the room. Preferably, the furniture was located around the perimeter of the room, except that you can use space not only along its horizontal but also the vertical, applying additional levels.

Decor in 190 Square Feet Living Room Interior

The living room is an excellent place for a rich décor. It is possible to arrange various figures, family photos, gifts or souvenirs, certificates, and medals for various achievements. The living room is a room for demonstrating the success of each member of the family in particular and the residents of the apartment/house as a whole. However, you need to know the measure. Making a museum exposition out of the living room will be wrong and inappropriate.

The abundant decor will not create a style but only hide it. So you do not need to use carpets, forged candlesticks and similar decorations here.

You need to think over the rest area. The living room must have in its arsenal a TV set opposite the sofa. If you want to protect against excess technology, it can be replaced by a fireplace or an aquarium.

Ideal styles for the design of the living room: Japanese, Scandinavian and, of course, minimalism. These are exotic, functional and thoughtful styles that allow creating a cozy and comfortable atmosphere for the family and its guests.
