7 Common Living Room Mistakes

We all know “Home Sweet Home” is true, but from visual point of view, how appealing is your living room?

There are probably mistakes you didn’t know you were making in designing your living room. Koala Box gathers you some information about seven common living-room mistakes most people are making and how to rectify them.

  1. Not enough colour

koala-box-greyroomA monochrome palette can make a room appear larger, but staying safe with white or grey can come across as boring and sterile. The good news is a plain interior palette is the perfect canvas to add pops of colour. Add colour using cushions, throws or lamps but remember the 80/20 rule: 80 per cent neutrals to 20 per cent colour.

  1. Matching furniture

While buying a whole lounge room set is easier, it can wind up looking generic. Take the time to buy furniture that represents your style – just keep an eye on the proportions and colour to tie it all together.

  1. Lighting

Using a ceiling lamp, table lamps and floor lamps, create a balance of light throughout the room. Make sure there is plenty of light available for reading and, if possible, make a focus point to isolate the main activity area of the room.

  1. Placing all of your furniture against the wall

There are a couple of problems with placing your furniture against the walls. It might feel like you’re creating space in the middle of the room but actually placing a couch even a few inches away from the wall will create a little breathing room and make a space seem larger. Also, if your furniture is pushed up against the wall, guests might find themselves shouting across the room to speak to each other. Bring the furniture in for a huddle to add an intimate feel to your design.

  1. End tables

Without one, where will your guests rest their drinks? As a rule of thumb, your end tables should be roughly the same height as the arm on your couch, allowing visitors to sip their drinks with ease as opposed leaving them on the floor.

  1. Hanging art too high

Art should be hung at high level. But as an overall rule, the centre of the picture should be measured roughly 150 centimetres from the floor (eye-level). This height is good to catch audience’s attention and convenient to view.

  1. Buying a small rug

koala-box-rugsThe rug is the glue to your living-room setting. The rule of the rug is this: be generous with your rug and scale it according to the room, using it as a focus point.

There are two methods to remember when choosing a rug size:

– the contemporary oversized method where you place all of your furniture on top of the rug – in most cases a 2.5 metres x 3.5 metres size is best,

– or the traditional method whereby you place your sofas around the rug and only your coffee table on top.
