Finishing Touches For Your Living Room

Designing your perfect living room is a little time-consuming, but is a great way of letting your creative juices flow. But when it comes to finishing off your masterpiece, there can be some difficulty in knowing what’s missing from the space. Here are some things you can add to your living room to make it your own.


Plants and Flowers

One of the best ways to really finish off a room is to add some pretty little plants or a vase of fresh flowers. They will add a splash of colour and texture to the room and also offer a calming effect. They also produce oxygen and therefore have been proven to be a great addition to any household.


Storage

You can buy living room storage units in a range of sizes, colours, and shapes. It depends on the look you want to achieve. If you want a more country-oriented feel, then oak units are an excellent option, but if you want a modern feel, you can go for gray or white. Try to fit your storage choices into the design of the room; this will make your living space seem bigger and make the most of the space you have to work with.


Shelving

If you have photos you would like to display, candles to place or even somewhere to put your plants, shelves are a beautiful way to display your favourite things. Shelves can be as large or small as you like and in many different styles. Pinterest  offers some great ideas for shelves in the living room. Driftwood is a unique and rustic material which you can turn into a stylish shelf and make into a feature of your room.


Art

No wall is complete without some stunning artwork or a family photo on a canvas. Don't leave your walls bare and open, add your own personal stamp to the space and hang one of your favourite photos, a collage or even just a funny poster. Either way, you'll be injected some of your personality to the room and adding those final touches.


Lighting

The type of lighting you have in a room can make or break for the atmosphere and overall feel of space. Play around with a few different types and colours of lighting until you find a style which suits you. There are so many different kinds of lighting you can choose from, such as LED lighting, a floor lamp, a chandelier or even fairy lights to add an element of magic. Candles are also a great way to make your room feel cozy and warm, as well as to smell amazing.


Cushions and Throws

Cushions are very possibly the most fun, quirky and exciting way to spruce up your room. Finding beautiful colours and experimenting with pattern and texture can breathe life into a blank space. Throws are not only super comfy to wrap up in, but also look great draped over a sofa or chair.


Mirror

The final piece of the puzzle is to find a stunning mirror to hang from the wall. A mirror is an excellent way to finish off your living room and make the room look large and spacious. If you don't want to settle for a normal rectangular shape, you don't have to. There are plenty of quirky shapes and designs that you can place in the room to add a flare of energy and edge to the room.
