Living Room Essentials for Your Kaneohe Custom Home

An empty home can be intimidating to start to decorate – you need to pick out everything from the décor accents to the largest pieces of furniture. It’s pretty common to feel lost and unsure of where to start.

A great way to make the prospect of doing up your entire home seem less daunting is to pick a single room and start there. And your living room is possibly the space you will be spending the most time in aside from your bedroom, making it an important space to outfit first.

As you get started on decorating your living room in your Kaneohe custom home, there are a few essentials that you should make sure to include in your design scheme. This checklist will help to ensure that your room is complete and comfortable to start using:

  1. Seating

Comfortable seating is a must-have for any living room, and the options are endless. From sofas to loveseats and everything in between, you can find a solution regardless of the size of your space.

Seating offers you an opportunity to get creative with your space – you can choose fabrics or leather, choose between reclining or stationary options, and add ottomans and accent chairs to make sure that comfortable seating is abundant in your living room.

  1. Tables

This is another décor element that is a must-have in any living room and includes every type of table that would be necessary for the space, like coffee tables and side/accent tables. 

Tables are an important element to include because they provide surfaces for personal items like glasses, magazines, TV remotes, etc. They also help balance your living room space, making it more attractive to the eye.

  1. Entertainment

Living rooms are often synonymous with entertainment rooms, especially if you don’t have space for a dedicated television or media room. If this sounds like your plan for your space, you should keep in mind that the entertainment system – television, video game console, or otherwise – is usually the focal point of any space that includes it. 

Make sure that you have display space for your entertainment system, whether that be a full entertainment unit or smaller display stands. These will add balance to your room by allowing you to integrate the system into the larger design scheme of your room and make it more pleasing to the eye as the room’s focal point.

  1. Accessories

This is essential when it comes to making any space your own. And when it comes to living room accessories, the sky’s the limit for you to choose from!

Accessory options include everything from soft furnishings to lamps and art. Rugs, pillows, and curtains allow you to add and layer color, texture, and style to your room, truly pulling together your design scheme. 

A good thing to keep in mind is that your main rug will usually end up dictating the color scheme of the room, so it serves as a great way to start with accessorizing your living room. Also, make sure to add art, lamps, and other tabletop décor to truly personalize your space.
