Choosing the right vibe and atmosphere for your living room can be incredibly difficult. For one, it will depend upon the mood and atmosphere of your home overall. Also, you’ll have to consider how you’ll be using the space. Is it more for show? Do you plan on doing a lot of entertaining there? Is it going to be a space where you and your family gather on a daily, nightly or all-day basis?
While you may be tempted by a darker design for your living room, there are a number of reasons you should go bright. For one, a bright living room is always an inviting one. The atmosphere of such a space is one where people are inclined to kick back and relax. Also, a bright living room is going to lead to a more cheerful atmosphere, which is something we could all use after a drab day spent at the office underneath fluorescent lights.
But, how do you create a bright living room? What are the ins and outs of designing such a space? That’s exactly what we’re going to examine as we take a look at these 25 stunning examples of bright living room designs. Below, you’ll see how various elements and different colors and materials can be pulled together in order to create the bright atmosphere you’re after. Let’s take a look…
1. White Popping

Just because you’re trying to be bright, that doesn’t mean you should avoid dark colors. If your living room gets a lot of natural light, consider including a darker furniture piece like the blue couch in this example.
