In most homes, your living room is the first room people see. Eventhough the living room is used mostly to entertain guests, you still want the room to have a comfortable environment for you and all family members.
An effective decoration of a room largely depends on its size and shape and mainly the purpose for which it is going to be used. Living room decoration can be either a simple task or a complicated one depending on the people that are going to use it. Simple if it is going to be empty for most of the time except when the family is at home; complicated if a lot of entertainment is going to take place. But that does not mean that it should not be the opposite also. It largely depends on the person who is going to decorate it. Another complication would be if a constant stream of children and pets are going to be traversing the room.
There are so many living room decorating ideas, from glamorous to elegant to country chic. Most decorators will tell you, though, that perfecting the basics is the best way to design and decorate a beautiful living room.
