A slightly larger living room will take kindly to old style Victorian ideas for decorating. You will get a feeling of opulence and richness, especially because of the generally mahogany colors of the furniture.

Keep a sense of harmony. You can quite easily obtain a sense of balance by thinking carefully about the materials you are using. Think of textures – rough or smooth? Think about how the surfaces respond to light – are they shiny and glossy? Smooth and reflective materials can help a room feel larger but they need to be balanced against other materials such as natural woods and stone. Solid wood furniture adds a lot of character and style as well as bringing a natural feel to your room.
Visual Balance. Create a good visual balance between the used and unused spaces. By used space I mean the floor that has been occupied by the furniture pieces. It is not necessary to fill every corner of the living room.’
Keep control of storage. If you accept that your living room will attract clutter then plan for it. Oak or pine cupboards and sideboards will give you the space to tidy up after the children have finished playing and allow the adults a tidier area to relax in when evening comes.
