Practical Living Room Hacks for your Condo

Feb 07, 2022

Is your living room Instagram-worthy? The living room is arguably the most important and noticeable room in the house. The living room is usually our first thought when it comes to decorating our home but at the same time, the living room needs to be one of the most versatile spaces inside your home as this is where we entertain guests, and where families tend to spend the bulk of their time at home together. For some, the living room is still a formal area reserved for guests while for others, it’s a very casual space. It is where they could kick back after a very long day to rest and relax or where they spend their weekends away most of the time since we’re still stuck in this pandemic. 

Living room design ideas these days keep in mind what’s best for its users’ needs and preferences. It should reflect them and their family. There may be some basic rules and rules of thumb when it comes to decorating but it is important to know what you exactly want with the space you will be living in. When a complete design overhaul may seem out of your budget, there are still simple ways to improve your living room in no time. From framed wallpaper art to furniture repurposing, here are some practical tips to hack your way to the living room of your dreams.

Get a perfect light

As windows give you the leverage of natural lighting, interior lighting should be considered too. There is a wide range of lighting fixture variations all over the internet that could match your goal for your living room ambiance. Investing in good curtains is also a great way to step up the style of the condominium. Consider having a mix of overhead, ambient, and task lighting. This hack could be elevated by adding mirrors to create an illusion of more space, and as light bounces off, they help you create an incredible look. 

Use Multi-functional Furniture

Sometimes spaces are limited, especially when you’re in a condo living. The key to this lack of space problem is to find furniture that pulls double duty in your space. A good example is a coffee table that has hidden storage and a top that can be lifted to create a raised surface for eating or work stuff. Moreover, a television or projector is also a good idea for your appliance for entertainment. 

Hang artworks

When wallpaper seems to look overwhelming and too busy an artwork could be your easy fix! Keep in mind that when hanging your artwork at home, avoid the most common mistake people make – hanging the artwork too high. It is very important to hang artworks at eye level. As this varies from person to person, personal judgment is a must.

Place plants

Plants add life and calmness into any space not to mention the health benefits such as improved air quality. While considering putting up plants, it is all about strategic positioning and the right sizes that can transform a dull room into a lively space. Keep in mind that too many plants existing in a room could make a space humid.

Use pillows thoughtfully

Try to not get overboard with throw pillows. These are great decorative accents but avoid having too many that you have to move all of them just to sit on the sofa. Choose a few that would enhance the piece of furniture around it. Do not be afraid to decorate with patterns as they could add life and character to the space. The basic rule would be to use more than one pattern but exceeding three patterns inside a room would be too much. Mix the scale using a variety of large, medium, and small pillows. 

The living room is indeed one of the most utilized spaces in each household. Here, the family gets to bond. This is also the place where kids play, where entertaining guests happen, and where important family discussions take place that is why it deserves your attention, time, and resources without breaking the bank.
