Do's & Don'ts: DIY Design

The living room is a key space in our homes, where we entertain, relax, and create memories. Designing this area can be tricky, navigating between style and comfort. We're here to simplify this process, highlighting essential design tips and common pitfalls to avoid for your perfect living room setup.

Do: Establish a Focal Point

Whether it's a fireplace, a piece of art, or even a statement sofa, every well-designed living room needs a focal point. This helps anchor the room and set the tone for the rest of the space.

Don't: Overlook Lighting

Lighting can make or break the ambiance of a room. Remember to incorporate layers of lighting – ambient, task, and accent – to achieve a warm, welcoming glow. Avoid relying solely on overhead fixtures as they can create harsh, unflattering light.

Do: Invest in Quality Over Quantity

It's better to invest in a few high-quality pieces that you love rather than filling the space with lots of cheaper items. Quality furniture not only looks better but lasts longer, providing better value in the long run. Given that most of us have limited budgets, we recommend splurging on a sofa and trying to save on other pieces, like coffee tables.

Don't: Forget Your Personal Style

Don't forget to inject your personal style into the room! The living room should reflect your personality and be a space where you love to spend time.
