Decorating a large room can be a very entertaining activity that you will enjoy if you like interior decoration and everything related to home in general. But, are you clear on how you are going to do it?
Keep the following tips and ideas in mind, the ones that work best in your living room and with your style.
Decorating a large room
The starting point is planning to be able to decide. Decide on what style you want for your salon, how you want to distribute the space… Do you prefer it modern or classic? How clear and functional do you want the space to be?
A tip: take a paper and pencil (or go digital if you prefer) and outline what you would like your room to have. For inspiration you can take a look at networks like Pinterest or Instagram, but also check out blogs or decoration magazines, and look at the decorated environments.
It is a way to create your own style, according to your tastes and needs, based directly on the space and particularities of your room.
Decorate large modern living room
All styles have a place in different homes: the industrial style, the Nordic style, japandi, combination of styles, classic decorative style… Even the most daring people mix several decorative styles in the same room, and the result is what is called eclectic style. If you have a clear tendency towards modern styles, you can opt for a minimalist decoration or a Nordic style. It depends on your preferences.
But if you’re looking for something modern, we also recommend that you value industrial style. Although the color black is very characteristic of the industrial style, there are alternatives such as the cement effect, which also get a characteristic style.
Decorating a large room with little furniture
If you opt for a few pieces of furniture you may go in line with minimalist tastes, although you can opt for a few pieces of furniture but with a somewhat more complex aesthetic, since the minimalist style is very sober.
The minimalist style focuses on having few objects, but also on choosing them with straight lines and neutral or clear colors. White is one of the star colors of this style.
Decorate large living room with fireplace
Did you know that there are several types of fireplaces? We tell you which ones exist so that you can get to know the different possibilities you have to integrate one into your home.
You can choose between different types of fireplaces:
- Wood fireplace
- Electric (the flame is decorative)
Depending on the energy system used, each one decorates or heats the place differently.
The gas, bioethanol and electric ones allow integrated designs in very modern walls. However, they lose the charm of the crackling of the wood. On the other hand, they allow you to forget about cleaning the ashes and storing firewood.
The electric ones are the most focused on decoration. And those of firewood in insert or cassette are those that more make profitable the heat, most recommended for great spaces, followed of those of gas.
