The living room is the critical room for designing a home. This is the room where themes come together and where people gravitate to. Often, the living room is the place where your most expensive furnishings are, and thus occupies a place of prominence in the home. It’s the showroom of your home.
The thematic elements in the living room are the basis for the whole house. If you prefer to have a minimalist design, then it’s expected that your kitchen will also be minimalist along with the bedrooms. The same goes for shabby chic, industrial, and every other type of design. Even small design touches such as exposed brick will be found throughout the home.
The 15 photos showcase many different yet impressive styles. You can make your living room just as impressive, and we’re confident these photos will serve as inspiration for your next design project.
