- Ceilings and floors
- a) Ceiling
Ceiling defines the size of a room. So hanging an expensive chandelier in a small room isn’t decorative. Know the proportion of the room and select the fittings in the up space. For low ceilings choose low profile furniture. This will help to maintain the space between floor and ceiling. You can use cheap vertical lined wallpapers to create an illusion of a high ceiling.
- b) Floor
Carpet with area rugs is the best alternative to the wall to wall carpet. Various texture and colors are available for a personalized look. Or you can make a custom rug to fit in the overall theme of the living room. Relate the rug or carpet size to the furniture or wall. An alone carpet will make a negative impression.
- Furniture selection
Furniture is the most important and expensive necessity in living room decoration. To decrease the blame in the budget, try mixing older furniture with fresh items. You can polish and repair old and functional table and chairs. Divert the gained money to buy some contemporary piece of furniture. Convertible furniture is another great choice. They can be wall mounted or stand free. Such item replaces the need of other furniture.
