Whether you call it a living room, a family room, a den, or something else altogether, this space is meant for relaxing, socializing, and spending time with friends and family. Of course, that means your living room needs to be suitable for both watching TV in your pajamas, and hosting friends for a get-together! Here are a few tips to put together a stylish and functional living room.

Go neutral. The days of a bold accent wall are over. Instead, a neutral color palette provides a great base to accessorize in whatever colors are in style. Plus, if you change your mind about a color theme, it’s much easier to change when it’s not on your walls!

Don’t be afraid to get dark! Black is a popular accent now, which is why so many people are painting furniture and architectural accents like built-ins or window frames. Bringing some black into your living room will create a sleek, modern look that feels rich and dramatic.

Keep it open. These days, it’s no longer popular to have rooms that are segmented off from each other. Instead, style your living room to keep the space open and connected to adjoining rooms. When you arrange furniture, imagine yourself walking from room to room, or trying to hold a conversation with someone in a nearby room, and place elements based on that.

Have flexible furniture. In order to accommodate both casual, at-home relaxation and entertaining guests, you should choose furniture that can serve all purposes. A sectional is a great way to seat more people than a regular loveseat would, and having a few lightweight armchairs should make it easy to rearrange as needed.

What’s the point of having a living room if you don’t want to live in it? Putting together a living room that feels both comfortable and attractive will make you happy to spend time there, whether it’s celebrating holidays with family, having friends over for a casual dinner and drinks, or alone binging the latest Netflix release!
