Often, your living room is where both your family and your guests spend the most time. It’s important to create a welcoming and comfortable atmosphere that will help your guests be at ease and make your home a place people want to gather. Below are five suggestions on how to create an inviting living room.

1. Choose furniture that will appropriately fit the size of the room. Furniture that is too small may make the room feel cold and empty, and furniture that is too large can feel suffocating and overwhelming.
2. Display artwork. Including paintings, prints, or photographs on the walls helps a living room feel intentional and finished.

4. Use a variety of textures in your rugs, pillows, couch, and chairs. This will be visually appealing and the softer the textures, the more cozy the room. Don’t be afraid to layer rugs or blankets. A cozy throw on the couch is always welcome as well!
5. Open curtains during the day for natural lighting and at night use lamps. Overhead lights can often be harsh and too bright, and nothing affects the mood of a room more than lighting.
