Tackling a large project requires a lot of help and that’s where we come in! In this guide, we’ll lay out some tips and tricks for designing your living room!

DESIGNING YOUR LIVING ROOM
The general definition of a “living room” hasn’t changed much throughout the years – it’s first and foremost a communal area that’s used by people in the household, whether that’s one person or ten. When you invite guests over, chances are you’ll spend time in the living room.

In designing your living room, it’s important to keep this idea of a shared space in mind. It can help determine the type of space you want to create.

QUESTIONS TO ASK YOURSELF BEFORE WALLPAPERING A LIVING ROOM
WHAT IS THE SPACE LIKE?
Before you throw up any wallpaper pattern, consider your space carefully. A living room may be connected to other areas of the home, such as the dining room or a small den. In a small apartment or condo, the living room may also double as a bedroom or work area. Take a look at the image below for example of mixed space usage.

If your living room is more open or connected to another space, this may dictate the general design elements. For instance, you may want to continue the color palette from the dining room into your living room.

WHAT IS CURRENTLY IN YOUR LIVING ROOM?
When designing the walls of your living room, keep in mind what is already in the space. Some furniture or décor items that your living room might already have include:

Seating: sofa, armchairs
Tables: coffee table, side table
Storage units: drawers, cabinets, baskets
Media furniture: TV stand, shelves
Décor: plants, artwork, mirror, carpets, blankets, small pillows
Lighting: floor lamp, table lamps, ceiling lights
Built-in items: Furnace, fireplace

 

Because of its sheer size, the walls are often one of the first noticeable features of a room, especially if they have wallpaper on. Think about how the wall design will interact with the furniture – will they clash? Will it pair well with your key furniture/décor items? Are you willing to switch some furniture items around if it doesn’t go well with your walls? All of these questions are important to consider.

In general, neutral colors work well with many other color schemes. If your intension is to keep your furniture and décor items as is, consider choosing black, white, grey, or beige wallpaper.
