1. Estimate and judge the space you have available

Many people make the mistake overestimating how much room they truly have in their living room, or vice versa. This is why you need to get a clear idea of how much space you truly have to work with and plan from there. Focus on large furniture like coffee tables and couches to get a grasp on how to organize the room. You’re generally striving for a good balance of items to keep the room interesting without making it look like a mess.

2. Choose the color and theme

Another gross underestimation by many is the importance of a color scheme. Just one pillow in the wrong color can ruin the whole vibe of a room. Most modern living rooms tend to go for monotone colors and lots of white while keeping the style very minimal and sleek. Old / vintage style rooms tend to lean towards brass and darker colors with dark wooden furniture.

3. Implement Plants

Although many find them a hassle to take care of, plants are a great way to liven up your living room. Try mixing small and large plants throughout your space and don’t overdo it – you don’t want a jungle inside.
