Choose the Correct Size – Before buying a living room sofa, make sure that you have measured the area of your room where you will be placing your sofa. However, if you have decided to transform your room completely, then it would be helpful to take measurements of the whole living room. You might have an idea of placing the sofa against the wall but what if you change your mind later on? A perfectly sized sofa will adjust itself to any corner of the room. A large over sized sofa will cramp up a small room whereas a small sofa would go unnoticed in a big room.
Smaller area rugs are usually 2’X3’, 3’X5’ and 4’X6’ in size, they can be used to decorate our living room by itself or put a piece of lovely furniture on top of the rug. Whereas larger area rugs are usually 6’X9’, 8’X10’, 9’X12’ and 12’X15’ in size, these area rugs can also be used to decorate a living room by itself or used to define an area in a house; we can place a set of sofa together with coffee tables on top of it, creating a beautiful focal point.

Lighting – Remember also about diversification of the lighting. Beside the overhead lighting very important are those mood making, like: halogens, scones, in-built led lighting hidden under the furniture, in wall corners and shelves.
Area rugs can be used in many ways, both practical and decorative. Although I’m going to give out some tips about how to decorate a living room with area rugs, they are only suggestion; it is all up to you to decide want to use any of it or not or you may come up with one that suit you the most. Depending on the area rug’s size, they can be used to create focal point to highlight something in a living room like table, chair, sofa, TV set, etc., with a smaller sized rug. Whereas a larger sized rug is often used to highlight an area in a house like living room, dining room, etc.
Furniture – While composing the furniture set in your eclectic interior consider the role of each premises. For instance cherry or mahogany are formal so they work well in home cabinets – both minimalistic and art deco design. Bamboo, rattan, pine are good only for informal premises: studio, living room or bedroom.
