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.
Furniture. Before selecting the furniture make sure what style you want. It can be Traditional, Contemporary, Victorian, European and mix of two. There is no hard and fast rule of sticking to one style as you can use your own creativity to create the style of your own. Also decide the color scheme in advance as your whole efforts will go waste at the end if there is a big mismatch. Once you have decided that shop for the furniture.

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.’
You should begin by thoroughly cleaning the room. Clean the ceiling first to get rid of any spider webs. Then you should proceed to the furniture. Remove dust from your furniture using a feather duster. Last but not least, sweep and mop the floor.
Decide on a theme that suits your personality. You can get lots of decoration ideas and inspirations from the internet or from home improvement magazines. You can consult your family members as well. Decide on what items to display or what colors the wall and the curtains should be.
