Make a Living Room Feel Like Home: 5 Furniture & Decor Tips, Symmes, Ohio

If you want your living room to be a comfortable, inviting space, the types of furniture and design elements you choose make a huge impact. From big central items like your sofa to tiny details like wall art, you want every part of the room to come together to make it feel like home. Here are a few suggestions to help you create that impression.

Furniture Options to Make Your Living Room Homey

1. Something Old

First, your living room needs a focal point, and one of the best options is an old object which evokes images of home. A beautiful antique, an old table, a game or toy you once loved—this simple but significant choice helps ground the room and make it feel accessible.

2. Functional Furniture

FurnitureThe more showy and delicate your living room furniture, the less likely someone is to want to use it, let alone sprawl out and get comfortable. Instead, choose a soft, relaxing sofa and practical tables and shelves to make this room functional first.

3. Art & Books

By adding artwork to the walls along with shelves of books, you can display your interests and tastes, and invite visitors to browse. For added effect, keep some of the books on tables in easy reach.

4. Pillows & Throws

Nothing says comfort like a soft pillow or fuzzy blanket to use. Throw pillows and blankets can match the room’s décor, but also make sure they are pleasant to touch. Also, choose pillows with changeable covers so they can be used and then washed as needed.

5. Cozy Lighting

A harsh fluorescent light versus a warm-colored LED bulb can completely change the feeling of a room. Make sure the room is well lit but not uncomfortably bright, and use soft, inviting colors. A dimmer switch is a major plus.
